Reduce symptoms of allergy-induced asthma

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, allergic asthma affects nearly 60% of patients of asthma in the US, making it the most common type of asthma. In this article, we share some tips on how to reduce symptoms of allergy-induced asthma.

Avoid Pollutants

While different people are allergic to different pollutants, here’s a common list of pollutants that can trigger asthma.

  • Pollen from grass, trees and weeds
  • Dust mites, pet hair or dander, cockroaches or mold spores
  • Second-hand cigarette smoke
  • Nitrogen dioxide (present in motor vehicle exhaust)
  • Soot or smoke from fire
  • Small air borne particles such as volcanic ash
  • Ozone

It is advisable to consult an allergist to identify allergies that are specific to you.

Boost Immunity

A strong immune system helps in coping up with allergies, thereby helping reduce the symptoms of allergy-induced asthma. Tips for boosting immunity include exercising regularly, getting adequate sleep, eating healthy, etc.

Take The Correct Nutrients

Nutrition plays an important role in making the body less resistant to allergies. Omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in fish like salmon and tuna can minimize the risk of allergies. Also, foods that are rich in vitamin C (citrus fruits, cantaloupe, etc.) and Vitamin E (almonds, spinach, etc.) can help in coping with allergies. You can also take dietary supplements that are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, and Vitamins C & E, in consultation with your doctor, to make sure you have the right intake of nutrients to fight allergens.

To summarize, by making simple lifestyle changes, you can minimize the risks of allergy-induced asthma.
