In this month’s issue of Montana Parent magazine, I discuss a few lifestyle changes that can improve your child’s lung health that does not require a prescription! To read the article go to page 36 at http://digital.turn-page.com/i/252493.  This month’s edition has many excellent articles and these can be found at: http://www.mtparent.com/

Here is a snippet of what you will find:

  • Eating Healthy:  Don’t forget the vitamins!  I review the importance of Vitamin C in preventing the development of asthma and allergies.  I discuss the good effects of Vitamin D in improving the response to inhaled steroid medications used for asthma and even how it can improve the immune response.
  • Obesity:  I review the effect weight loss has on improving asthma measure and outcomes.
  • Exercise:  I review the fact that exercise is a trigger of asthma, yet exercise-induced asthma can be overcome when managed appropriately.

Eat right, exercise and maintain a healthy weight!  Yes, it is what our mother’s have told us all along and now there is proof to back it up.  At Family Allergy & Asthma Care of Montana, we believe in common sense approach to good health and most of what our mothers taught us.  I’m still not sure about putting a bar of soap at the foot of my bed to prevent muscle cramps!
