I developed allergic rhinitis as a young boy, and by the time I got into College, I started experiencing asthma attacks as well. Life is difficult for an asthma sufferer like me, and other people out there suffering from the same condition would agree with me about that.
You probably know that asthma and allergic rhinitis are considered by most experts as “incurable” medical conditions. Yes, they are manageable, but you can’t really get them out of your system, and they can strike again without warning if triggered. I agree with this, because even if I was able to control my condition, there are times that I still experienced attacks, although not as frequent.
Perhaps the reason that I don’t experience attacks more often these days is that I have learned how to control the condition. I know I am not fully invulnerable to asthma, but if I stick to doing the right things, there’s no way it’s going to bother me at the same level that it used to.
Now, what things have I done to manage my condition, you ask? Well, I would say it has a lot to do with the things that I put in my mouth, and eventually, my entire bodily system. In many cases, asthma can be triggered when the sufferer is exposed to much irritant such as dust, pollen, and animal dander. This is true for me and moving out from the house I grew up in and starting my own family in a different city really helped.
You see, aside from the fact that the house I grew up in is already very old and dusty, there is also a high pollen count in the area where we used to live. When I got rid of those triggers, I was able to breathe a lot easier.
