For the best results Use your DPI inhaler correctly
If you use a dry powder inhaler (DPI) to treat asthma
or obstructive lung disease, you may think there's not much to it. But
one study showed that 32 percent of users were not using it correctly,
which significantly reduced its benefits.
The DPI requires a measured, forceful inhalation to
ensure that the powdered medication gets deep into the lungs. Inhale too

fighters. Oatmeal has soluble fiber that reduces bad cholesterol without
lowering the good kind.

It's the cold and flu season. That can make you think
twice about going to places where you will come in contact with a lot of
people as you would at the mall or in a crowded cafe. Some of those
people will be contagious.
In those circumstances and at work, your best
protection is hand washing. Anything you touch could carry the flu
virus, but it does wash off.
