Website About Allergy and Asthma in Israel

There is a website Allergy and Asthma in Israel, created in light of the relatively limited access to allergists and allergy/asthma information in Israel. Its purpose is to educate people about common allergic diseases and asthma. The site also provides an opportunity to consult with the doctor or his associate for specific allergy or asthma advice. The site is intended as a way of doing a Chesed for Klal Yisrael.

This is from the About Page:
This website was created by board certified allergy and asthma specialists for the benefit of the people of Israel.

The impetus for its development is the recognition of the lack of readily available information to the Israeli public about issues of allergy and asthma, the high incidence of allergic disease among Jews, the limited access to allergy and asthma specialists, and the relatively underdeveloped medical specialty of “allergy and asthma” in Israel.

Our intent is to provide you with up to date and “state of the art” allergy and asthma information as it applies to you or your child(ren).* It will provide and link you to easy to understand articles and resources on a wide variety of subjects. It will also provide you with an opportunity to “consult” on line with a board certified allergy and asthma specialist.

The first step to the treatment of any medical condition is to understand the nature of the disease and to become educated enough to ask the correct questions of your physician, and to give you an opportunity to “take ownership” of your health. The information that we provide is not a substitute for a close working relationship with your physician. We encourage, when appropriate, that you seek the consultation of an allergy and asthma specialist to best manage your or your child’s particular medical issues.

Control of allergies and/or asthma, through sound medical treatment, can change the quality of your life or your child’s life forever. Get involved, become informed, and take control. We will help you do just that!

We wish you all good health! Labriute!
