Breathe well, live well with asthma
At Asthma Australia, we want all people with asthma to breathe easy and to live a full and uninhibited life. For most people with asthma, this is possible if the correct management is in place. Managing your asthma means taking control of your health. It means working with a doctor and medical professionals to determine an Asthma Action Plan, and using it every day. Find out more about Asthma Action Plans here.
It means prevention and reliever medications and your asthma are balanced, so the asthma is under control. And that means there are few symptoms or flare-ups, also known as asthma attacks.
If you or someone around you has asthma, make sure you know what first aid to apply and what medications are necessary. Take medical advice. Some companies or organisations that promote complementary medicines do not have an evidence base. Use proven medicines in consultation with your doctor.
Some times of life require extra care. Correct asthma management is critical for children and young people with asthma and during pregnancy.
For now, there is no cure though we are supporting research to try and help this.
