I've seen too many asthma patients suffering recently. Our air is becoming more polluted daily leading to more asthmatics.
Doctors commonly forget one simple suggestion:
Drink 8-10 cups of filtered water daily.
Why is this important?
Water assists in thinning the thick sticky mucous which pains so many asthmatics. See the inflamed bronchial tube filled with mucous?
Water also assists in diluting blood histamine. Histamine is what causes sudden fast inflammatory reactions. If one can block histamine, then sudden immune reactions can also be blocked.
Other supplements which assist in reducing histamine:
Vitamin C, quercetin, MSM, water!
There are also some items which assist in reducing asthma attacks:
HEPA air filters (do not get ozone forming ones!!!), HEPA vacuum, water filters, shower filters, dust mite covers for your bed and pillows.
Lifestyle tips for reducing asthma attacks:
Wash your bedding weekly in hot water to kill dust mites and remove dust.
