For 36 years, May has been declared “National Asthma & Allergy Awareness Month” from the Allergy & Asthma Foundation of America (AAFA). This month is extremely important, as it educates people about the importance of identifying and treating allergy and asthma issues

Let’s take a look at statistics from the AAFA


  • About 25 million Americans have asthma 
  • About 32 million Americans have food allergies
  • About 21 million Americans have hay fever, rhinitis, or nasal allergies


Those numbers alone represent 78 million Americans! With spring in full bloom and allergies running rampant, Dr. Brauer wants to help you take control of your allergy issues instead of these issues controlling your everyday life.
