What is Asthma?
Asthma is a chronic lung disease that can be terrifying for adults and children. Respiratory distress can be dangerous and life threatening as it tightens airways and blocks the flow of oxygen to the body.
This disease impacts people of all ages. Some see the first signs as a young child and others develop them at an older age. It can also be affected by environmental factors. These attacks can be triggered by allergies, a common cold, weather, dust, smoke, pet dander, or environmental pollutants. Symptoms of asthma include:
- Shortness of breath
- Painful breathing
- Tightness in the chest
- Interrupted sleep patterns due to coughing or wheezing
- Limited activity due to shortness of breath
- Increased severity and frequency with cold, flu, or other viruses
Unfortunately, there is no cure for asthma, but asthma prevention along with effective symptom treatment can greatly improve your quality of life.
Don’t let asthma control your life, enjoy the peace of mind that comes from effective asthma prevention.
Asthma and Allergies
The majority of those with asthma also have allergies that can trigger an asthma attack or compound the symptoms. These can range from common allergies like dust or pollen to life-threatening food and insect allergies. Some of the most effective asthma remedies may involve diagnosing and treating an underlying allergy issue. Our professional team at Modern Nose Clinic can help to identify your allergy issues and help you avoid dangerous asthma triggers.
Allergic asthma is very common and when underlying allergies are not under control this can lead to a dangerous double-threat. Not only will the patient suffer from the normal allergic reactions to the nose, eyes, or skin, these same allergies will also impact the lungs and airways.
Allergy treatment can not only help manage the risk of asthma, it can also prevent asthma attacks. Our team specializes in the most advanced and effective allergy treatment options including:
The most effective allergy treatment plans start with high-quality allergy testing. At Modern NoseClinic, our board-certified allergy and immunology team can perform an evaluation, diagnose, and recommend treatment. Our detailed process includes a comprehensive review of your medical history, a full medical exam, and skin prick allergy testing.
Allergy testing is the process of learning what allergens your body reacts to as well as the severity of the reaction. Common allergens included in an allergy test are food, pollen, mold, pet dander, and dust mites. Our comprehensive skin prick test can identify up to 60 allergens and our detailed evaluation will determine the degree to which each allergen impacts your overall health. Blood testing is also available when necessary and beneficial.
Immunotherapy is the only method for effectively treating underlying allergies. Over-the-counter and prescription medications are helpful for symptom management, but they do not address the root cause of allergies.
This treatment, commonly delivered as an allergy shot, is a solution that has helped allergy sufferers find lasting relief for generations. Allergy drops are a modern advancement that has the same benefits as allergy shots without the discomfort and inconvenience.
Allergy shots and allergy drops work by gradually retraining the body’s immune system to recognize and respond appropriately to harmless allergens in the environment. Many of these allergens also trigger asthma attacks. As the body learns to respond to these allergens, the frequency and severity of allergy and asthma attacks is greatly reduced.
Allergy immunotherapy is not only a safe and effective allergy treatment but a critical component for asthmatic treatment.
SMART CARE for Allergy™
SMART CARE forAllergy™ is a modern, safe, and convenient way to treat allergies. So safe that you undergo treatment from the comfort of your home. SMART CARE for Allergy™works on the same basic principle as Immunotherapy. The patient's immune system is exposed to a small amount of material (antigen) that causes the immune system to react. Gradually and repeatedly exposing the immune system to allergens reprograms your immune system and results in a decreased allergic response. Your immune system becomes"smarter" as it eventually learns to respond appropriately to harmless allergens. This long-term solution will result in a decrease in allergy symptoms as well as the related asthma condition.
Allergy medication can be an effective part of a treatment plan to control symptoms and reduce the risk of allergy and asthma attacks. All medications, including over-the-counter medications, should be carefully reviewed by your doctor to ensure your safety and to examine the effectiveness on your specific allergy and asthma issues.
Natural Treatment for Asthma
Increasingly, people are in search of a natural cure for asthma. Websites that promote home remedies for asthma attacks and other natural asthma tips are more popular than ever. Currently, there is no known cure for asthma (medicinal or natural); however there are some important natural solutions that should be part of your allergy and asthma treatment plan. These should include:
Avoiding Allergy Triggers
One of the most effective natural solutions for allergies and asthma is to avoid the substances that trigger the attack. Effective allergy testing is the first step in this process. Once triggers are properly identified then a plan to reduce or eliminate contact with the substance can be put in place. This may include adjustments to the household environment, the use of specialized filters and air treatments, and avoiding certain foods or places. When possible, avoiding triggers is the most effective natural solution for allergies and asthma.
SMART CARE for Allergy™
Unlike pharmaceutical medications, SMART CARE for Allergy™ is a safe and highly effective treatment plan. Allergy drops are made from all-natural extracts of allergens such as pet dander, mold, dust, and pollen. Allergy drops have an impeccable safety record as there are no reports of anaphylactic reactions to the all-natural extracts contained in allergy drops.
Treatment: Prevention and Preparation
Treating asthma begins by understanding exactly what type of asthma you have and identifying the triggers that cause your specific attacks. Identifying the specific triggers can help you plan to avoid or mitigate the onset. Relief of asthma symptoms begins with a proper diagnosis by a professional that can understand the full scope of your condition. The best treatment involves planning for prevention and avoiding the crisis.
The most effective asthma treatments are those that fully understand your triggers. These triggers are often caused by allergens, and in many cases, they can be avoided. When you can prevent contact with an allergen, you stop the chain reaction that results in an attack. The best rescue plan is to prevent respiratory distress before it happens. Treatment plans that focus on prevention can help you live day by day without fear.
Allergy treatment and behavior changes are highly effective in preventing the onset of an attack and giving you the peace of mind that you need to enjoy life to the fullest. It is important to have an action plan to prevent your next allergy and asthma attack.
