Asthma and Stress – Part Two


According to the American Academy of Allergies, Asthma and Immunology, stress can lower your immune system’s ability to manage chronic conditions such as asthma. People with asthma may be more likely to get sick if under a high degree of stress.
If you are an asthma sufferer, try implementing the following stress management strategies to strengthen your body’s ability to better manage your asthma.
• Avoid stressful situations
• Practice relaxation techniques
• Get plenty of exercise
• Eat well
• Get plenty of sleep
• Develop a strong, social support network

Supplementing your diet with vitamins and immune boosting antioxidants may also help benefit your over all health.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Here are some suggestions for some natural products from Shaklee to help with your mild asthma.

    1. Alfalfa Complex: I use for my allergies and now don’t take any prescription meds. Many people use this product for breathing difficulties. (first line of defense)
    2. CarotoMax which contains antioxidants that helps reduce damage to mucous membranes caused by histamine release.
    3. OmegaGuard (Shaklee’s ultrapure, pharmaceutical grade fish oil) which helps reduce frequency and severity of episodes.
    4. Use our Shaklee GetClean household products. Using our laundry and cleaning products have helped many people with health challenges.

    Some other helpful tips:
    Eat organic food, eliminating processed, sugar-laden or high-fat foods. Air purifiers do help as well.

    If you have any questions about these products, go to http://www.shopwithdenise.com or call me (number on the website).

    Again thanks for your interest and I hope I helped a bit.

    Best of Health, Denise
