Today, asthma is a widespread condition where symptoms can range from a small nuisance to life-threatening problems. With such a large spectrum of asthma triggers, it can be hard to treat and understand. If your asthma symptoms have you worried, find out how to treat them.
Understand Asthma Triggers
An asthma attack is the constriction and production of mucus in the lung’s air passages, which causes shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing. These symptoms can be brought on by a host of stimuli. Each case of asthma is individual, but three major triggers are the following:
- Exercise Induced: Cardiovascular exercise can strain the lungs, pushing them into an asthma attack. Cold or dry air can make attacks more severe.
- Occupational Asthma: Strong fumes, gases or dust can cause the lungs to constrict and trigger an asthma attack. This extends to strong perfumes and liquid cleaners.
- Allergy-Induced Asthma: Allergens like pollen or pet dander will trigger allergies and work up to an asthma attack.
Know Your Asthma Symptoms
There is no cure for asthma, but you can prevent the symptoms. After an asthma attack, it’s important to record it. It will help you understand what causes your symptoms and how to gauge the severity compared to past attacks. You can leverage this information to better prepare for a future attack, if not decrease your chances altogether!
Treat Your Asthma with Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment that will help keep your asthma symptoms away. Acupuncture restores your body’s energy pathways to improve your overall health, leaving you in-control of your lungs. Plus, it has no side effects like an inhaled corticosteroid medication.
