Eat a lot of foods that have vitamin B6. Getting increased amounts of B6, also called pyridoxine, has been scientifically shown to make asthma attacks less frequent. How does this work? Pyridoxine is a chemical that reduces constriction in the bronchial tubes. This constriction is what brings on asthma attacks. Chicken and carrots, as well as bananas, are two good food sources which contain vitamin B6.
Knowing what triggers your asthma is an extremely important thing to know in order to prevent asthma attacks. A journal is a good way to identify what has triggered an attack and provides you with a simple way to keep your doctor informed. After you identify your triggers, make every effort to stay away from them.
If you have received a diagnosis of asthma, you are not to smoke or be near vapors or other types of fumes. Thus, you need to avoid cigarettes and cigars and be vigilant about steering clear of environmental or workplace exposure to smoke.
If you are cleaning, you should use a mop that is damp instead of a dry broom. An asthma attack is one possible outcome of a sweeping session that fills the air around you with allergens and dust. When you dust, try dampening a rag, instead of a feather duster, to avoid spreading things that can trigger your asthma.
