Hello there! My name is Jessica and I am on day 23 of my first Whole30. I am 32 years old and have been diagnosed with asthma since the age of six. I have stuck to the program very closely and am feeling much better. I have noticed a notable improvement in my asthma symptoms so far. I take one 10mg Singulair tablet at night and an inhaler as needed. I'm down to 2 puffs 1-2x a day (an improvement from 2 puffs several times a day.) All of the sudden the other day it dawned on me that maybe I shouldn't be eating nightshades. I was digging into some baked eggplant with a homemade tomato sauce with ground chicken when this happened. Being Italian and growing up consuming tomatoes and spicy food daily...and also having an extreme love affair with all ethnic food...I immediately panicked. As I started to research online all I could find was inconclusive information. Asthma can be looked at as an autoimmune disease in some schools of thought and not in others. Many personal accounts I read said that their asthma symptoms had disappeared after only a couple weeks on the Whole30. I do know that everyone is different and this is going to be a further process of elimination. But I could not find clear information on whether or not I should be consuming nightshades, eggs, and maybe even ghee and nuts and seeds. I sort of started to feel down yesterday seeing as my egg and nightshade consumption have been very high during my Whole30. I know that even considering that, I have been rewarded with many benefits. SOooo...my question is for all you Whole30 asthmatics out there. Are you eating nightshades? If not, did your symptoms improve with the removal of them? Are you eating eggs? Ghee? Nuts and seeds? Thank you!!!!
