Time to Breathe

Do you have asthma and allergies, like me?

Whether you are a child, a teen or even adult, living with asthma can be challenging.

From the time I was born, I had asthma…but the doctors did not know it.  My parents would bring me to the hospital every six months, I would be admitted to the hospital and given a breathing treatment.  This went on for years.

Until one day, my mother told the doctors she’d leave me in their care if they didn’t figure out what was wrong.  This threat worked because they found my lungs were weak and I had asthma.

Over the course of my childhood, I took classes to learn about asthma and was taught breathing treatments.  While this helped, it was more of a coping mechanism, rather than a cure.  It was not until I was an adult that I learned that certain foods will cause inflammation and continue to cause me to have symptoms.  I know I will not be cured of this disease, but I know that I have control over it.  Ultimately, I have changed my lifestyle to help manage my asthma and allergies, and the changes I have made have worked for me.

Do you or your child live with asthma and allergies?  If so, I would love to help.  Use the Contact Me page to send me a message and together, we can learn how to reduce your symptoms and allow you to live a fuller life.
