Exercise Regularly

One of the most important things you can do for your lungs and your entire respiratory system is to exercise. 

When you exercise, even if you’re not engaging in anything especially aerobic, your heart and lungs have to work harder to get oxygen to circulate throughout your body. 

That not only makes your lungs stronger, but it also helps keep your heart in shape. With exercise, your body becomes more efficient at getting oxygen into the bloodstream.

You’ll notice that you’ll get less short of breath the more you exercise because your entire breathing mechanism starts getting stronger. 

If you suffer from seasonal breathing issues, exercise can also help. Although it won’t eliminate all of your symptoms, exercising makes blood pump faster, getting rid of irritants sooner. 

The sooner the irritants are gone, the less of an inflammatory response you will have. 

Avoid Air Pollution Exposure

In the modern world, it’s tough to avoid all air pollution exposure, but you can take steps to minimize some of it. 

Ozone and particle pollution are the most common forms of pollution you’ll encounter outside. It’s a good idea to always look at your local outdoor air quality. 

If possible, stay indoors during the days with the worst pollution. It’s a good idea to have an indoor air cleaning system, like purifiers, in place to prevent indoor issues. 

If you have a system in place already, make sure to clean the filters before and after the days with the worst air pollution in your area. 

When air pollution is at its worst, don’t exercise outside. If you need to go outside, do so earlier in the day, when air quality tends to be better. 

Improve Indoor Air Quality

This is crucial, especially if you live in a location that has poor air quality most of the year. You want your home to be your refuge. 

It’s crucial to get rid of anything that can make your indoor air quality worse, including mold. If someone smokes in your home, ask them to do it outside. 

You’ll need to dust regularly if you have seasonal sensitivities as well. 

For some people, dry air can trigger inflammatory responses that make breathing more difficult. To manage this issue, you can use humidifiers that release cool mists. 

Try Breathing Supplements

At Quality of Life, we offer supplements that help your airways and entire breathing mechanism, as well as other areas impacted by sensitivities. 

Our Allerfin® supplement has been crafted to target what causes itchy eyes as well as what affects your sinuses.* The product promotes the health of nasal passages.*

The Allerfin® supplement features a proprietary blend of botanical ingredients, as well as:

  • Perilla extract
  • Bromelain from pineapples
  • Quercetin 
  • Rosmarinic acid

It is a non-drowsy formula that is also gluten-free and comes in vegetarian capsules. 

The supplement helps your immune system have a healthier response while also blocking the release of histamine.*

Quercetin is especially helpful in managing the release of histamine, and perilla can help with maintaining eye and sinus health.* 

The Allerfin® supplement has been third-party tested and clinically validated. 

Maintain Good Hygiene

Many times, people assume that washing your hands is just to help prevent viral and bacterial invasions, but this simple stem can help you avoid seasonal irritants as well. 

You may not even notice you’ve touched dust or pollen. When you rub your eyes or scratch your face, you bring those irritants into your airways, leading to symptoms. 

By washing your hands after coming into contact with public surfaces, especially in the spring when pollen count is high, it can make a difference to your breathing system.  

Stay Hydrated

Drinking lots of water is important at all times, but it can be especially so if you’re dealing with seasonal breathing difficulties. 

When it’s dehydrated, your body produces more histamines, which are the chemicals that cause irritating symptoms. It does this in an effort to preserve the water it has. 

By staying hydrated, you can reduce the need for your body to react in this manner. Drinking lots of water also prevents some of the itchy, dry skin you may experience. 

Drink water throughout the entire day, and steer clear of coffee or anything else that can dehydrate you. 

Add More Fruits and Vegetables to Your Diet

Adding fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C can be a great way to help yourself deal with sensitivities. Vitamin C makes your immune system work better. 

You also want to consider foods that contain omega-3. This fat can help curb inflammatory responses, which can prevent symptoms of breathing troubles. 

It’s not only vegetables and fruits that can help, but spices, too. Ginger is particularly great at aiding the moderation of inflammatory responses.

Giving Your Breathing System a Boost

It can be frustrating to have to deal with sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, and all of the other symptoms that an irritant can trigger.

With spring upon us, it’s important to find ways to boost your whole breathing mechanism and airways so that you don’t struggle through every day.

At Quality of Life, we offer the Allerfin® supplement to help improve your immune response to seasonal irritants.* 

Don’t struggle through another year of fighting with your airways when you have the chance to improve your breathing.
