Absolutely. I had bad allergies and asthma as a kid, beginning when I was about three. It improved as I got older and was able to make my own food choices, but I still had issues with it at times - depending on many different variables such as air quality, environmental exposures, altitude, exercise, etc. - even after 10 years of those God awful desensitization shots. When I ditched grains, it seemed to be a thing of the past other than the occasional postnasal drip, tight chest and itchy ears and throat. Eventually, I played around with getting rid of dairy and soon realized that once I had gotten rid of both, I was completely asthma and allergy free. It's been a good couple of years since I made that discovery, which is more than enough motivation to stick to this woe for life - in addition to countless other major perks.
Life is not a matter of having good cards, but of playing a poor hand well.
