Anyone who has asthma knows how debilitating the condition is—and it’s far from being a rare ailment. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, more than 25 million people in the U.S. have asthma, which equates to roughly 1 in every 13 people.
Asthma is a condition that causes the airway to narrow and become inflamed. This results in an excess amount of mucus in the airway that makes it difficult to breathe. Asthma affects children and adults and varies in severity. Some people experience minor symptoms, while others suffer from serious and even life-threatening asthma attacks.
While you can’t change your genetics and the fact that you have asthma, you can take steps to reduce your symptoms and the hold that asthma has over your life. And with today’s technology, you can treat your indoor air quality (IAQ) and find immense relief by taking steps to help eliminate asthma triggers.
Regardless of the ailment, the most effective treatments are the ones that target the root issue. This is why indoor air quality systems are so powerful in combating asthma symptoms.
The most common triggers of asthma symptoms include pollen, dust mites, pet dander, mold, secondhand smoke and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These are the same pollutants that IAQ systems are designed to target and eliminate. While medication is extremely important for treating asthma, it’s also helpful to recognize that improving your IAQ is an added natural and organic approach.
Considering the fact that the average American spends 93% of their life indoors, it makes sense treating your indoor air quality is well-worth the effort.
