Acupuncture for Breathing Problems


Asthma, both allergic and adult onset, is very influenced by the diet that we eat.  I can give you all the details you need to eat the best diet you can to help your asthma.  As a sufferer myself I’ve really looked into this, and I’m a member of the British Institute of Allergy & Environmental Therapy.  For an over view of asthma the following video is helpful:
