I've ready some interesting studies that link EIA to an imbalance of Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids. I believe that I might suffer from mild EIA (symptoms only occurs after running more than a mile), and I'd like to enlist in the military next year - yet unfortunately any form of asthma, mild to moderate after my 13th birthday is an automatically disqualification (I'm 17 going on 18 now). If I were to take Fish Oil tablets every day, do you believe that this could greatly reduce the symptoms I get, assuming it is in fact EIA? After a year or so of continued exercise, good diet, and once-a-day fish oil supplements, do you think my EIA symptoms might be all but alleviated?
Furthermore, I cannot use any supplements in boot camp, so do you think that assuming the fish oil reduces my symptoms (assuming it is EIA), once I get to boot camp and cannot take the fish oil, would these symptoms return? After boot camp I am allowed to take fish oil (and any other legal supplement). I have a burning desire to serve my country in the military and I do not want my chances to be ruined by something that really doesn't effect me at all.
