    Cardio, winter and asthma

    With it being winter and I know I should be doing cardio but I was wondering if I should take a walk outside or do my Walk Away the Pounds dvd that I have. I'm asthmatic so walking outside in the winter months when it gets really cold like this kills me. Any suggestions?

    Get outside! Just be sure to bring your inhaler.

    I cleared my life-long asthma with EFT. And if you are going to follow Al's suggestion, then use your inhaler before you go outside to prevent an attack from happening.

    I can use my inhaler before, during and after a workout outside and it doesn't do me any good. Considering that I don't have insurance right now, I'm not too sure what to do. I do drink coffee as well to help with any flare up.

    How's your Vitamin D level? It has been shown to help reduce asthma symptoms.

    Vitamin D is probably shitty considering I live in OH, the land of grey skies in winter and I really don't go outside much in summer due to allergies. I do take Vit D when I remember to take it. Whats the deal with EFT? I've tried it for allergies and it does seem to help. Also, I'm screwed when we do get insurance as I have to find a new doctor. Old doc moved to PA.

    Best to start taking 5,000-6,000 IUs of oil-based D3 daily, if you want to reduce your overall inflammation level. I haven't seen a doctor in over 3 years--finding nutrition, exercise and EFT to be my best friends health-wise.

    Do some tapping on your asthma body symptoms before you exert yourself (inside) and see what happens. If you need more ideas, go to the website link I posted and do a search for asthma. Or find a practitioner. (I am one of many who work over the phone and Skype.)

    Dragonfly, do you know of any stores that sells oil-based D3? Never seen it before.

    www.iherb.com has the best prices (see link in my signature line...) I like Carlson's Solar D Gems (fish oil base), NOW brand is cheaper--look for the one in an olive oil base...they are gel caps.

    What about a balaclava? I find that helps me breathe easier when I'm outside in cold, dry air.
