Hi! My name is Lori. I started having problems breathing last year, went to the doctor & found out my oxygen intake was low 80's during the day & even lower while sleeping.
So, far I have found these to be the trigger points for me: stress (not always easy to avoid), dust, chemicals in my cleaning products, smoke from fires (just found this one out), and even when it is too hot outside.
I am reducing my stress where I can, my son now does the dusting, I am switching my cleaning products, no longer visit my family in So. NV in the summer. I found out a lot about the chemicals in our cleaning products that we aren't even aware of. If you can get ahold of a copy of "Toxic Brew" (video) I highly recommend it. I am now using products from a Wellness Company & doing so much better...no more Advair & only use my Albuterol a couple times a month. Except since this week, we had a fire not too far from here & it has been really smokey in our little town.
Have a great day,
If you would like to contact me, please feel free!
