asthma effects everyone differently and sometimes even hits the same person in different manners. If I get around cigarette smoke my chest tightens immediately and I can't breath. Other times I start coughing, but I've never had the runny nose first.
As far as processed foods, I have found that eating real foods....from the earth, Mother Nature, God, or whatever adjective you'd like to use here has enabled me to completely control my asthma without any inhaled, injected or ingested steroid. It took about 6 months in combination with chiropractic treatments, but it worked and I save a lot of money and am rid of the side effects from those meds. If I can't recognize it as something that grew from the earth or had a mama, it doesn't go in this body. The first thing I did was get rid of the Diet Pepsi habit. That was huge.
For an easy, down to earth read try Jillian Michael's Master Your Metabolism. It's interesting. Good luck and keep working at it.
