Asthma Management - Family Guide to Asthma and Allergies
Like most asthma sufferers, you probably stumbled onto the disease, completely incognizant of why you suddenly couldn't do something as simple as breathing.
For the estimated 14.6 million Americans who suffer from trying to manage asthma and related allergies, the American Lung Association's Family Guide to Asthma and Allergies is the essential aid in preventing and treating asthma.
The first chapters walk you through the underlying causes of asthma. They identify common triggers and explain the biochemical reactions these triggers set off in the body in easy-to-understand terms, clarifying the interconnected relationship between asthma and other allergies.
The rest of the book offers thorough, practical instruction on asthma management. A chapter on allergy-proofing your house leaves no dust mite or speck of pollen unaccounted for. Each chapter provides checklists to help you manage everyday situations, such as educating the babysitter, preparing for a vacation, or even teaching your child how to use different medications and gradually learn how to manage his or her disease.

Rating 4 of 5 - Amazing common sense book on managing asthma for a governmental publication
This book provides a good baseline start for controlling environmental allergies for parents with highly allergic or asthmatic children. Of course, the parents themselves can also benefit by following the procedures indicated in the book.
Two things that I did not find in the book were: a comprehensive plan for dealing with food allergies/food sensivities, and also what nutritional supplements people with allergies/asthma should be taking.
Vitamin C should be taken by all people who have allergies and/or asthma, because high doses of Vitamin C block mast cell degranulation, which inhibits histamine release (thus Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine). Also, Vitamin C has bronchodilator effects. For more information about Vitamin C's myriad functions, read the book The Failures of American Medicine.
