Regular exercise helps control the symptoms of asthma.
Regular exercise helps control the symptoms of asthma. According to a new study, engaging in just half an hour of moderate exercise, or even just anything active, increased the chance of people with asthma having good control of their symptoms by two-and-a-half times. While people have been discouraged from exercising due to risks of having shortness of breath attacks, the new evidence shows the benefits to be greater than the risk. Precautionary measures such as using reliever medication and taking time to cool down afterwards can help, but there’s no excuse to not get out and exercise. “Just 30 minutes a day: Regular exercise relieves asthma,” ScienceDaily, sciencedaily.com, October 7, 2015.
