THE REVIVELIFE APPROACH

During your assessment, your menu and nutrition will be reviewed to ensure that you are eating your baseline of fruits and veggies that have been linked to reduced asthma or respiratory symptoms.1

  • Vitamin E: Vitamin E prevents the release of inflammatory cytokines, and specifically inhibits gene expression of IL-4 that is linked to asthma.2
  • Selenium: This mineral has been found to help those with chronic or severe asthma which is often deficient.3-5
  • Zinc: Zinc supplementation during pregnancy may help reduce the risk of childhood wheezing and asthma in those genetically predisposed. 6

Our practitioners bring years of experience, advanced diagnostic testing which is often not found at your traditional medical doctor’s office. Testing and eliminating or reduction of food and environmental intolerances IgG and allergies IgE has been found to improve respiratory health.7
