I have Allergic ASTHMA …

I also have a Dog…

Just as Allergic ASTHMA is Strongly Rooted in the Progression of Allergy MARCH ...

Whereby, ASTHMA Symptoms can be Substantially Abated by Neutralizing your Offending Enviro Allergy Triggers / Allergy Source with 100% Natural Sublingual Immuno-Allergy DROPs ( Self-Administered Under-the-Tongue ) which are Custom Formulated based on YOUR Geo-Regional Allergy Blood Test Results.

So Tooo …With our DOGs.

Many Pet Parents Do Not Realize that their DOGs Suffer from the Same Pollens, Dust Mites & Molds that > We Do.

Not to Worry ..
DVM Dermatologist Dr. Kristin has 100% Natural Formulated > Lick / Lick / Lick Sublingual Doggy GOO to Build Immune Tolerance to 10 Pollens, 2 Dust Mites & 3 Molds > Via a GOO-Licious Peanut Butter Tasting Treat.

Now YOU and Your DOG Can Enjoy Spring / Summer / Fall & Winter > Without the Health & Quality of Life Limitations caused by Allergies.

Thank You Dr. Kristin !

Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHER. The University of Arizona received a grant for "a biomarker study to define how dogs present in the home near the time of a child's birth decrease her/his risk for asthma."
It is also believed but not proven or dis-proven that having a dog in the home may help decrease symptoms of asthma by decreasing blood pressure and anxiety. However there also are some allergy sufferers who are particularly susceptible to pet dander, so a non-shedding pet or one that is cleansed and brushed often may be the best bet. I'm interested to learn where you heard this from? You may want to ask your doctor what he/she suggests to ensure proper treatment of your asthma.
Good luck! Let us know what you find out, and how you are doing.
