Help on asthma days

The rainy season is here, causing changes in weather that may also trigger asthma attacks in sufferers. We did a feature back in early May on asthma here at the POC Wellness page.

The shifting of seasons is one of the known triggers of asthma. There are a lot of preventive measures that can be done, however, in order to avoid or minimize the chances of getting acute attacks. Watch the video at the end of the article to get some tips on how to do breathing exercises to improve lung health and capacities.

Oftentimes, owning a portable nebulizer, like  inogen oxygen concentrators, becomes necessary for persons with asthma.

Get down, dirty and organic

So organic’s all the buzz these days.

But why not? With the Earth’s ecology becoming more and more endangered each day, we should be shifting to a better, higher consciousness of self-sufficiency –  consuming less, reusing more. And going organic is one way of living in a self-sufficient way. I am waaaaay far from being self-sufficient, but, along with (semi-)vegetarianism, self-sufficiency is one of the things I hope to somehow get into before my lifetime is over.

Central to the concept of self-sufficient living is growing your own food. Here is a great article on the POC’s Health and Wellness channel –  Organic Gardening 101.

Ready the work gloves and get down and dirty… in the garden, that is.
