Flyp Tips for Spring Allergy Season

Posted on

It’s early springtime in New England. The mornings start with a slight hangover of that familiar winter’s chill, but as the sunshine finds our faces through the parting clouds, we feel a warm reminder that summer is—in fact—on its way.

Can Stress Cause Asthma?

Posted on

Stress doesn't cause asthma, but it does exacerbate it in ways that researchers are only beginning to understand. It is useful to think of stress as a trigger, like smoking, dust or air pollution. And like these other triggers, stress can and should be managed. In a study that followed asthmatic children for 18 months, the experience of a sudden negative life event (such as death of a close family member) nearly doubled the risk of a subsequent asthma attack. Furthermore, the impact of a sudden negative event was accentuated when it occurred in the context of chronic stress. Children...
