Asthma Symptoms and Triggers to Watch out For

If you have asthma you’re well aware of the troublesome symptoms that can occur. The tightening in your chest, the wheezing, when you can’t or feel like you are unable to catch your breath. Some people cough or have shortness of breath at night. It can be a pretty scary feeling to deal with. Asthma can also be very traumatic to watch your child suffer from the symptoms this illness causes. The Salt Suite is a provider of halotherapy or salt therapy, which is a way to treat the symptoms of respiratory conditions like asthma. Here are some other facts you may not know about asthma and the symptoms it causes.

What Causes Asthma?

It’s a two-fold cause for most people, a genetic predisposition, and environmental factors may contribute to the likelihood of someone being diagnosed with asthma. With that being said it’s one of the most underdiagnosed conditions.

Asthma Attack Triggers

Everyone is different, but for those that suffer an asthma attack can be brought on by a variety of things like indoor or outdoor allergens, pet dander, tobacco smoke, chemical irritants in the air, and air pollution. Even exercise can sometimes bring on symptoms of the disease, or stressful situations where anxiety triggers an attack.

 Using the right medications or inhalers sometimes isn’t enough to prevent the symptoms from occurring.

“During a typical adult session, customers put their feet up in a comfortable leather chair rest or read and breathe in a dry salt aerosol. The microparticles are blown in the air by halo generators. In our separate children’s room kids play in a big sandbox except with salt on the walls and floor and play while breathing in the dry salt air.”
