Natural Treatment for Asthma
Asthma is a chronic disease that affects the airways – the small tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs. When a person with asthma comes into contact with something that irritates their airways (an asthma trigger), the muscles around the walls of the airways tighten so that the airways become narrower and the lining of the airways becomes inflamed and starts to swell.
Sometimes sticky mucus or phlegm builds up which can further narrow the airways. All these reactions cause the airways to become narrower and irritated - making it difficult to breath and leading to symptoms of asthma.
The usual symptoms of asthma are coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and tightness in the chest. Not everyone will get all of these symptoms. Some people experience them from time to time; a few people may experience these symptoms all the time.
The conventional medicines meant for treating allergy and asthma treat only the symptoms. They do not treat the underlying cause. The medicines used for asthma have numerous undesirable side effects. The cortico steroids are among the most widely used drugs for the treatment of Type 1 hyper-sensitivity diseases like asthma. The steroid based asthma inhalers are fraught with various complications. Steroids weaken the bones and stunt growth. The side effects of steroids can range from dental complications (weakening of teeth due to calcium depletion) to diabetes to impotence.
None of these medicines can actually intend to heal person with Asthma. In almost all the cases the person is made to take an assortment of medicines and steroid sprays life long. The dosages are periodically increased as the person builds up tolerance.
Asthma can never be cured or controlled by pumping your body with factory made medication, laboratory designed molecules, artificially made chemicals and steroids. Certain combination of herbs have similar properties as steroids in enhancing ease of breathing and building up strong immunity against allergy without any side effects.
The good news is that there are various asthma natural treatment ebooks available. Read on for more...
