Yeah I tried some Himalayan pink salt from the indian grocery store and it seems to be having a really good effect on me because I get a good feeling and feel very rejuvenated..........I guess it helps clear the dust out of my system and breathing better.
It definitely helps for me and maybe more people who Asthma should be required to live by the ocean. I mean maybe this is something that should really be considered by lawmakers because it is all so hurtful for me dealing with my condition.

The opening statement is such a powerful message, "it is important for everyone to exercise, even if you have asthma." These children are so engaged and in touch with their symptoms. It is great to hear them talking about the preventive measures they are taking in their daily lives; I love how we can all use technology now to help too - like an app to measure pollen counts and air quality days.
After reading Teens With Asthma Almost Twice As Likely to Smoke I felt awful to know that as a teen I tried a cigarette and was deathly asthmatic! Why? To belong, to conform. Thank God I choked and almost coughed up a lung! I think it is so important to teach young ones how to stand up to peer pressure. That's the piece I was missing that could have helped me in that regard. I watched a classmate smoke and end up in the hospital each and every time with an asthma attack. She was already...
I've been going to pulmonologists, ENTs ,Allergists , holistic options , over and over again for 3o years. Asthma just got worse. Chronic cough. Even went to Cleveland Clinic Cough Clinic. Cough would never stop. Tried all drugs prescribed. Did test for gerd twice. DiD Everything and was compliant. Been going to salt suite near me for past 3 weeks- hour and half day and I HEAR the silence of not coughing ALL the time and lungs feel not as tight. No other changes so I'm sticking to it.
Lisa, I'm glad your cough is better -- are you working with a pulmonologist or allergist now? What other medications besides Advair are you on? Feel free to start a new topic on our AAFA asthma support community so you can share your story and journey with us, or join in with a topic like dealing with irritants Recently diagnosed and trying to figure out treatment Explaining adult onset asthma to friends and family
I like this question because I was not strong in this area for years. Water is so important but every time I drank it I was reminded of my childhood and how it was used to induce vomiting to bring up unpleasant fluids. Thus I detested water- Ok truth be told I hated it! It's not until I got married and watched my husband and step-son consume water like they were in a desert. They noticed the reverse with me and said that's not good--you need to flush your kidneys So I started a journey and I...
WWe are most grateful for this article! My lungs do not know the difference between "essential"oils and other fragrances AKA chemicals. Please consider using the standard that NO smell is the good smell...we need to breathe unadulterated air! Rid our environment from chemical odors found in personal products, detergents/fabric softener, plug-ins, household cleaners and the like. Additionally, our children will benefit from a clean air environment!
I've heard that said many times. But my parents had a dog for a few years before I was born and that did not keep me from being allergic to animals nor did it prevent me from developing asthma. It wasn't until they removed the pet from the home did my allergies improve and the asthma attacks stopped happening. At the age of 50 I unknlowlingly came in contact with a dog and had a bad asthma attack. Since then my allergies have not calmed down.
Patients were heard! The Graham-Cassidy bill is defeated. Pre-existing conditions, lifetime caps and other protections for patients are protected. Thank you to all of our advocates for sharing your stories and taking action. We hope the next step to improving our health care system puts patients’ needs front and center and that our leadership listens and fixes the items that are still barriers to care.
To keep our living room free of allergens, we have leather couches, blinds without curtains, no throw pillows and wood floors without area rugs. We would love to add a beautiful Dyson Pure Cool air cleaner!
We manage our indoor air quality through ensuring the home we just purchased has less than 10% carpet/fiber floor covering, removing all scented products (from fabric softener to candles and air fresheners), by using Norwex cloths vs dusting sprays, several Himalayan salt lamps placed throughout the house, a personal air purifying system in our son's bedroom with the door remaining closed, using Asthma & Allergy Foundation rated vacuum, removing all shoes prior to entering the main...
Thankfully, I find keeping the living room allergen free is a bit more simple than other rooms in the home. Our living room is covered with hardwood, which is easy to vacuum, Swiffer and mop with a steamer. I've used the Unscented Bona Hardwood Cleaner to work well on any spills - and find that effective. I purchased faux wood blinds, rather than fabric curtains to cover the window, which eliminates a dust trap. Our couch is velvet (not completely ideal for allergens), although I vacuum it...
I have Alpha- 1 disease , asthma and allergies and a non working fan in the kitchen of my home, i do what i can to keep allergens out, no shoes, vacume and dust a lot, no air freshners .... ive learned the hard way to be carefull when cooking things that may smoke or induce strong fumes ( anything with vinegar) they can cause a asthma attack, there are so many allergens all around, it can be difficult to stay on top of them.
We live in a co-op building that requires rugs or carpet over 80% of the space, so I can't use washable area rugs or have exposed hard floors. I don't allow smoking in our home, but we get cigarette and other smoke smells in our apartment anyway from the neighbors. And who has time to dust and vacuum DAILY? I do have curtains - I change them seasonally and at that point they get washed. And I don't use scented products or candles.
We live in a house built in 1924. We can't open our windows because the weights in the windows are gone and the windows drop without warning. In addition, the previous owners had large dogs and we can't get our ducts cleaned because the duct work has encased asbestos tape and the HVAC people won't cut through it. So we can't clean the dog hair out of the vents.
For my living room, I have beautiful wood floors. I sweep the wood floor and I vacuum the couches to perk them up and clean up dust, hair and debris/crumbs from them. I don't have a lot of items in the living room so less clutter to hold dust! I have a microfiber broom and duster that I use to clean the living room with too that I love, they really work great! I use a HEPA filter in my furnace too for better air too.
We try our best but I have to say, that allergies and asthma get in our way. When our 6 year son has asthma episodes, our only option is to retreat to our friendly abode. He's not to run, and it is hard to make it fun. Asthma is hard for everyone. His room is set, he has an air filter there, but thats not enough to clean the entire house's air. If we were to win the "Dyson Pure cool", maybe our son would have less asthma and miss less school. ☺
Hardwood Floors, leather furniture, Hepa seal tight vacuum for area rug and hard wood floors. Put throw pillows in dryer weekly. Been sick with bronchitis going on 2 weeks due to COPD and allergies. Could really use an air filter for living room area!
I vacuum regularly with an allergen vacuum. Have a family member dust as often as I can get them too. Now reading this I will start to find more hypo pillows or covers for them, I love my pillows. I also don't allow my pets on the furniture, they have their own beds with removable covers for easy washing. I work from home so I am always home and could use the relief from a filter.
I got allergy pillows for my son and I - they are horrible. They don't have enough "give" when you lie on them and they force our necks (especially my son, since he's a young child still) at awkward angles. I prefer allergen covers on regular pillows.
