Asthma is a lung disease that affects more than 25 million people in the United States alone, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). About 7 million are children. While there is no cure, the American Lung Association reports that asthma can be managed and treated. At Allergy Be Gone, we're committed to offering products and equipment for the home that we hope can help minimize or alleviate at least some asthma symptoms.
The symptoms of asthma include recurring periods of shortness of breath, wheezing, chest tightness and coughing. A doctor's help and regular checkups are critical, but the INS says there are also steps you can take to avoid triggering an asthma attack. Irritants such as cigarette smoke, air pollution and workplace dust can trigger an asthma attack, and so can viral upper respiratory infections. Allergens from dust mites, animal fur, mold and pollens from grass, flowers or trees can also worsen symptoms. Stress can be a factor, and so can sleep apnea.
However, every person is different, which means that some allergens might trigger an asthma attack for one sufferer but not another. That's why you can find dozens of leading brands of products and home equipment at Allergy Be Gone. Browse our name-brand lines of hypoallergenic bed linens, HEPA air conditioners, humidifiers and dehumidifiers. We carry products to control mold, filter out pollen and filter your water.
