2 Nutrition and Exercise plan for Tracy Bignell Healthy eating and exercise will lead to a healthy body. When a person has asthma it is vital they eat right and gain exercise to maintain a healthy body. Everyone has crutches, and some are harmful. Smoking is a crutch many people have. The process to stop smoking can be difficult. Some of the complications from smoking are lung cancer and can lead to death. If a person does not eat properly and exercise they will develop different health problems. I currently suffer from asthma. “Asthma makes breathing difficult for more than 22 million Americans. Asthma symptoms, which include coughing, wheezing, and chest tightness, are common in an asthma attack” (unknown, 2005-2011). I also suffer from heart burn and acid reflux due to my asthma. With the acid reflux and heartburn I need to watch my caffeine intake, and with the asthma I need to exercise in moderation. The asthma causes my airway to swell and I have multiple symptoms like, a hard time breathing, and acid reflux. When having an attack my airway fills with flam and this triggers my acid reflux and heart burn. No one knows the cause of asthma, if it runs in the family you are more likely to have it, but does not run in families. My asthma is triggered by my allergies. Living with Asthma can be challenging at times, but a person has to learn their limitations. While working with my doctor I have found that I need to exercise more often but for shorter periods of time. I can do anything that a person can do that does not have asthma. Weather does play a part when a person has asthma. I cannot go outside extended periods of time on humid or real cold days. What I found helpful on these days is to go to a local mall, school, or health club with a pool for exercise. Sense I do have limitations on how much exercise I can do
