Asthma Is Becoming Harder to Live with and Treat
While asthma was always a difficult condition to live with, for many people the challenges are increasing.
There are more pollutants in the environment than ever before. Personal care products are often no more than chemical soups, additives and preservatives are in almost all prepackaged foods and restaurant meals, and even simple foods like bread are loaded with chemicals. We are regularly exposed to pesticides, fertilizers, and packaging materials made up of complex blends of many chemicals.
All of these chemicals may cause a sensitivity or allergic reaction that weakens your immune system or cause symptoms of asthma.
Additionally, some experts say that our growing reliance on genetically modified plants is resulting in an increased proportion of allergens.
Many people do not get enough exercise or rest. By getting insufficient activity and sleep, your entire body suffers. If you are overweight, your symptoms are likely to be worse, and as you grow older you have an increased likelihood of having other co-existing conditions that may stress your body.
While you have more medications available to treat your symptoms, they can cause symptoms which may disagree with you. If you need frequent antibiotics, you may get sick from taking them, plus they may not work well against today’s superbugs.
Each of these complex issues must be addressed in order for you to live well, despite having a diagnosis of asthma.
