10th October 2013, 12:00 AM

Canada has one of the highest rates of people with Asthma and 60% of Canadians with Asthma do not have good control over their asthma.

Asthma is a chronic disease that affects your airways. The airways are the tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs. If you have asthma, the inside walls of your airways are inflamed (swollen). The inflammation makes the airways very sensitive, and they tend to react strongly to things that you are allergic to or find irritating. Allergy to House Dust Mite is the most important allergy associated with asthma. House Dust Mite Allergy triggers year-round itchy, watery eyes, runny and stuffy nose, wheezing, sneezing and coughing for allergy sufferers. Symptoms can be eliminated by dust-mite proofing your home and cottage especially the bedrooms.
