As a child always interested in being a hockey player, 1 of the last things I wanted to hear from our dentist at numerous years outdated was that I had asthma. He didn’t just supply myself and others a diagnosis, but also advised to our mother that I avoid overly hard activity to avoid the risks of a respiratory attack. That was the end of our hopes and dreams of being active in athletic activitys beyond playing with our friends in the backyard. Even then our mother tried to hover over myself and others like a helicopter parent. She didn’t want something bad to happen to myself and others either under her watch or in the times when she couldn’t be near myself and others while I was at school or playing over at friends’ houses. I didn’t want our asthma to hold myself and others back in any extreme way, but that was hard to avoid when any hard activity would bring it out in full force. I remember a hectic game of more than one-hand-touch pigskin that left myself and others breathless for multiple moments before I could manage to claw our rescue inhaler out of our front jeans pocket. That was a horrifying situation, however I thankfully haven’t had too numerous like it in the years since. I try to be proactive about our respiratory health and any preventable triggers. It starts and ends with our indoor air quality, and the only way to ensure that is by having a good and clean Heating and A/C system. Aside from having it cleaned consistently, I also only use the special allergen filters for our heating and cooling system. They filter out to a smaller micron size, effectively collecting microparticles that would otherwise pass through a cheaper filter. That keeps less particulates from collecting in your a/c and blowing throughout your house.
