The cause and the treatment alternatives for Asthma
What is Asthma?
Asthma is a Greek word meaning Panting or quick breathing. A common chronic condition affecting the airway and lungs, caused by inflammation of these tissues1. it affects a large sum of population , as many as 400 million individuals around the world2, and was responsible for about 400 Thousand deaths in 20153.
What is the cause of this disease?
The cause of Asthma is a combination of genetics and environmental factors4. Genetic predisposition is a proven fact when it comes to asthma, where if one of two identical twins suffers from the condition, there is a 25% chance that the other will at some point in life5. Other conditions are also associated with developing asthma, such as eczema, allergic rhinitis6, and even obesity7 have been recently introduced as a predisposing factor for developing asthma.
Environmental factors (or triggers) that aggravate the condition include pollen , dust8 , some medications as aspirin , and other commonly used and available household items and equipment such as PVC pipes, in addition to household allergens as dust mites, cockroaches and animal dander9.
What are the signs and symptoms of Asthma?
Symptoms of Asthma vary greatly according to the extent of the disease. They range from a simple cough and wheezing, to chest tightness and difficulty of even catching your breath. Needless to say that the symptoms become worse at night and with exercise10. If an infection develops, the cough may be associated with sputum that is filled with pus and bacteria11. Not only that, but Asthma is commonly accompanied by other conditions such as GERD (Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease), anxiety and obstructive sleep apnea12. Asthma attacks happen a few times a day or a few times a week according to the severity. Symptoms increase at night and during spring1.
Most people who suffer from this condition move very slowly, and are very careful before leaving home, of the fear of developing an attack. This of course results in lack of social life, and poor human connections. Also the burden of not being able to breathe normally or doing regular exercise, or even walk down the street during spring, can be devastating.
Asthma treatment according to the western medicine tradition
Treatment of Asthma includes inhalers and medications of different categories, but most of them have to do with steroids. Salbutamol inhalers are used as fast acting relief, and are usually recommended for people who were recently diagnosed, and before exercise. Other anti-allergic medications are used to decrease the effect of allergens and triggers and decrease the chance of developing and attack. Long term treatment mostly consists of Steroids in inhaler or tablet form, in combination with other fast acting drugs for symptom relief. Some natural treatments and reliefs exist.
Boosting immunity with Vitamins C & D proved to be helpful in reducing symptoms. Ginger, mustard oil and honey help to reduce the inflammation and relieve the symptoms. Figs and garlic can help clear the airway and suck the excess mucus and sputum, facilitating natural breathing. Regular exercise and controlling the breathing while doing so, will help your body get familiarized with the condition, making it not so debilitating as before.
Asthma treatment according to the natural medicine tradition
Western Medicine focuses more on treating the symptoms when the attacks happen, but we can help make sure that the attacks and other symptoms like coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, pain, or pressure never develop at all.
We can help patients fight their condition, and make their life significantly easier. Not to mention the adverse effects of inhalers that are mostly composed of steroids, the simplest of which is dry mouth and can be so severe that it causes kidney failure.
