In the heart of California’s Central Valley, nature’s beauty abounds. But there’s also a pressing public health concern: asthma. At Baz, we’re dedicated to relieving our neighbors’ respiratory woes. Oftentimes, local cases of asthma are closely tied to common allergens in the area.

Asthma and Allergies: What’s the Difference?
Asthma and allergies, though distinct, often go hand in hand. Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition marked by inflammation and constriction of the airways, resulting in symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and difficulty breathing. Allergies are the immune system’s exaggerated response to harmless triggers like pollen from trees, grasses, and weeds, leading to symptoms like sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, and wheezing.

The Central Valley Connection:
The Central Valley isn’t just a great place for us to live … It’s also a haven for a wide variety of botanicals. Unfortunately, the richness of our landscape comes with a downside … the release of pollen that can wreak havoc on our respiratory health.

“In the Central Valley, we often see patients with asthma whose symptoms are exacerbated by allergies. Identifying and managing these allergens is crucial in controlling asthma and enhancing quality of life.” Dr. Pettigrew, Baz Allergy, Asthma and Sinus Center

Here in the Central Valley, the connection between asthma and allergies is a significant public health concern — even putting a burden on local hospitals. At Baz, we’re committed to your relief. Schedule an appointment today!
