How To Reduce Asthma Causes

If you have Asthma you probably already know about all of the drugs you can buy to help relieve the symptoms of the disease. And there are a lot them. But wouldn't it be better if you could reduce the chances of having an attack? If you'd like to learn how, read on. 

1. What are the causes of Asthma?

Airborne dust, pollen, and pet dander are just a few of the triggers that cause Asthma attacks. These allergens are common in homes and when inhaled can cause the wheezing, coughing, and restricted airways that are characteristic of this serious illness. Modern medicine focuses on treating these attacks after the symptoms appear or through chronic use of pharmaceuticals whose list is so long it is almost as mind numbing as the medicines are themselves. Wouldn't it be better to reduce the occurrence Asthma attacks before they happen? Think about how much better it would be to breath easily and not worry about when the next attack will come. How much money could you save if a rescue inhaler was only needed half as often? 

2. How can you reduce the causes of Asthma?


The best treatment for Asthma is prevention. And, the best prevention is reducing exposure to the triggers that cause Asthma by reducing the level of airborne particulates. An effective way of reducing airborne Asthma triggers is to use an air purifier. But, make the wrong choice in an air purifier and you're just throwing your money away. 

3. What does a good air purifier do to help Asthma?


There are hundreds of choices in air purifiers, each making one claim after another. And frankly, most of the claims are probably unsubstantiated at best and inaccurate at worst. When making a selection, be sure to choose one that doesn't use ozone or chemicals - these can cause more harm than good. Also, choose one that has the airflow pattern to reach all of the air in the room and filter it at least 20 times per hour. If it doesn't do that, don't buy it because it won't reduce the triggers for Asthma.
