New home am ease allergies Dear Dr. Lamb I am pleased to discover you in Tor- onto's new Sun, for I enjoy reading your column. I develop- ed an allergy in 1956. I am allergic lo ragweed, trees, Brass, molds, and bouse dust. The desensitizalion injections1 have not been successful and I have had four asthma attacks, and subsequent hospilalizalions, since the spring of 1970. My seasonal allergies have become a year-round asthma problem. The doclor advises that I relo- cate lo a drier and more steady climate. Since ragweed is my main problem I am contemplat- ing moving to Okanagan Valley in British Columbia on a tem- porary trial basis. According In a booklet from the Canadian government [his area is rag- weed free. Although Arizona is supposedly an ideal climate I am not sure Ihe high tempera- tures would be agreeable with me I prefer a moderalc cli- mate. I am 45 and asthma and blood pressure are traditional in my family. Dear Header may I say that I am pleased to wel- come you and Ihe other new readers of Toronlo's new Sun. Individuals who have allergic aslhma often do better in a cli- male free of (he allergen. If your problem is simply rag- weed, your move would bcnetil you. In general Ihe areas of Ihe world free from ragweed arc almost anywhere wesl of Iho Rockies, high altitudes such as ll.c mountains in Colorado, Wy- oming, the southern tip of Flor- ida, Kuropc and South America. You also say you have trou- ble with grass and free pollen. Individuals wilh these problems often don't gain much by a change in climate. The best ap- proach is to lest your planned new area. Individuals allergic to house- hold pets and animal products sometimes improve markedly by eliminating pels, feather pil- lows, and ilems conlaining ani- mal subslanccs. Indiv i d u a 1 s who have bouse dusl problems should eliminale things that contribute to collecling dust. This includes stripping your bedrooms of carpeting, gelling rid ol drapes and heavy furni- ture, and iriainlainiiig careful cleaning. It might be well to have one room in the house that is relatively bare. Use il to isolate yourself from housp dusl. 1 understand your desire to stay in a cool climate, but one advantage of a warm climate is the use of air-condilionine. The air conditioning can be used to filter out dust and helps to purify the air. This is some- limes helpful for asthmalics. Many of the so called air fil- lers that are advertised, how- ever, are nol completely suc- cessful and are not nearly as good as is needed for Ihis pur- pose. For Individuals whose allergy attacks are precipilated by res- piratory infeclions, trcalmenl is directed towards preventing or controlling respiratory infec- tions, usually with antibiclicF and similar medications. The last time I discussed as- thma, one irate reader wrote to ask I was so ignorant not to realize lhal asthma was caused by psychological fac- tors. It is true that nervous or psychic tensions can precipitate allacks, but it has nol bee n proved (hat psychological fac- tors alone cause asthma. When asthmatic attacks are precipi lated by psychic stress the person already has the basic underlying mechanisms of as Ihiua. Tlus, is Ihe current view of Ihe Allergy Foundation of America.
