Impact of Pregnancy and Menopause on Asthma
I'm including this article from TestCountry.com to alert my blog readers to the fact that hormones can absolutely affect asthma and allergies. I have personally spoken to several women who were able to dramatically reduce or altogether eliminate thier asthma medications after they got their hormones (bioidentically) balanced. I do not have asthma, but I have had lifelong seasonal allergies that got worse when I moved from NY to NC in 2004 (Charlotte is in the top 5 cities in the US for severity of allergy symptoms). I started bioidentical hormones in September 2006---right about the time I would have gone back on Allegra (or whatever I was taking at the time), and the progesterone so quickly cured my allergies I haven't taken any medication since.
