Asthma

Also indexed as:Bronchial Asthma
Don’t let asthma knock the wind out of you. Asthma is a lung disorder characterized by sudden fits of wheezing, coughing, or shortness of breath. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.

To help keep you in top health, our experts recommend these steps:

  • Don’t overlook being overweight. It may not seem obvious that extra pounds mean more asthma, but the connection is real: being overweight significantly increases the risk of developing asthma. Select Eating Right, above, for more information.
  • Factor in fish. Fish oil may help prevent exercise-induced asthma attacks. Enjoy fatty, cold-water fish, such as wild salmon, sardines, and cod, at least one to two times per week. If fish doesn’t regularly appear on your plate, consider fish oil supplements to get more omega-3 fats. Select Vitamins, above, for more information.
  • Use antibiotics with care. Antibiotic use during the first one to two years of life may increase asthma risk. Do not mistakenly treat your little one’s viral infection with these drugs. Your doctor can help you tell the difference between bacterial infections—which do respond to antibiotics—and viral infections, which don’t. Select Medicines, above, for more information.
  • Mobilize your motivation. Knowing that being overweight increases asthma risk is great motivation to stay fit. A tool, such as a pedometer, to track daily steps taken, or other get-fit activities, can help you establish healthy habits and keep excess pounds at bay. Select Personal Care, above, for more ideas on tools for a healthier life.

Our experts recommend the following tips to keep asthma under control, and to help you breathe easier:

  • Be alert to additives and allergies. For some people with asthma, certain food additives, such as sulfites and yellow dye #5, may worsen symptoms. Undiagnosed food allergies also may aggravate the condition. Select Eating Right, above, for more information.
  • Ask about anti-inflammatories. Certain anti-inflammatory dietary supplements, such as boswellia and omega-3 fats, may lessen frequency and severity of asthma attacks. Ask your healthcare provider if these dietary supplements may be right for you. Select Vitamins, above, for more information.
  • Know your medications. There are nearly two dozen commonly prescribed medications, which can be used alone or in combination to control asthma. Don’t accept frequent asthma attacks as a normal part of life. If your asthma isn’t wellcontrolled, talk to your doctor about other medication options. Select Medicines, above, for more information.
  • Control your environment. Healthy living products, such as an air purifier to lessen asthma triggers in your home, can be an important part of your asthma self-care plan. Select Personal Care, above, for more information.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

    when opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues.
