Ans :         Asthma is an illness characterized by episodes of breathing difficulty, accompanied with sensation of suffocation due to the restricted respiratory tract inside the lungs. It also causes a frequents violent cough as the body tries to removes the mucous accumulated in lungs.

The constriction of the respiratory tracts is caused by three main factors :

  1. Inflammation of the mucous membrane in the bronchial tube. Or a combination of the three.
  2. The bronchial muscle next to each tube contracts causing a stifling or spasm and the inability to breathe deeply and easily.
  3. Accumulation of mucous in the bronchial tube.

Ans :          The symptoms  of asthma are -

Tightness in the chest, cough and periodic bouts with breathing difficulty. In more serious cases inhalers and extra oxygen are necessary to assist breathing.

Allergies, air pollution, respiratory infections, stress or anxiety producing spasms (involuntary contractions) of the muscles that surround the bronchi and not allowing air to enter lungs.

  • Add little honey to the water and drink it several times a day, especially during an asthma attack.
  • Take Echinacea alongwith Vitamin-E with selenium and Vitamin-C for enhancing the immunity system thereby preventing and eliminating any inflammation of the bronchial tube, which is common with asthma.
  • Ginkgo Biloba is an excellent plant with the ability to dilate the bronchioles, causing the alveolus of lung to open and allow the passage of oxygen. The Chinese have used this plant for many years to combat asthma, especially asthma due to allergies that is most common.
  • Relaxation ; It is very helpful for a person who suffers from asthma to learn to relax, as this will help relive tension when an asthma attack occurs.

  • Slow, deep breathing is very beneficial and should be practiced along with relaxation exercises.
  • Exercise is very important, especially swimming, which help children and young people to strengthen the muscles of the rib cage and to oxygenate lungs.
