Can Asthma Sufferers Consume Coconut Milk?
Hello, my doctor Eva. I want to ask if people with asthma can eat coconut milk. Is it permissible or not to eat curry that contains sanatan. Thank you
Good afternoon Eva, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Asthma is a disease that attacks the respiratory system. When an asthma attack comes, the respiratory tract narrows resulting in the sufferer feeling shortness and difficulty breathing. The cause of asthma itself is unknown, but among the things that can trigger asthma conditions are:
Lack of sleep
Infection of the respiratory system
Dust, pollution and cigarette smoke
Strenuous physical activity
Stress, nervousness, anxiety or excessive sadness
Stomach acid disease
So regarding your question, coconut milk itself is not a direct cause of asthma. But if you have an allergy to coconut milk, or coconut milk causes your stomach acid to rise, asthma can be triggered. So our advice, if you are not sure whether you have allergies or stomach acid disease, you should try to consume coconut milk little by little first and if there are no complaints means that it is no problem to proceed. So, hopefully answering your question.
