Asthma: When breathing becomes difficult

&Nbsp; Scientists want to learn more about human lungs by mimicking them in the lab

What are the causes

Doctors have not yet fully understood the reason why some people develop asthma and others do not. It is likely that genetic predisposition plays a role. But external influences are also decisive in the development of asthma. That's especially true for allergic or "extrinsic" asthma. It is caused by a multitude of possible pollutants in the air, ranging from chemicals and solvents in paints, adhesives and plastics to vapors and dusts produced in metal or wood workshops, animal hair, grain dust or food such as fish and shellfish or meat products.

Asthma can also be caused by a viral or bacterial infection. Often this leads to so-called "intrinsic asthma," which is accompanied by an increased immune defense of the body. The paranasal sinuses are almost always inflamed and nasal polyps can occur.

Medication can also trigger asthma. Another cause can be the reflux of gastric acid into the esophagus. Asthma can also develop into chronic obstructive bronchitis (COPD). Then the cough no longer occurs in form of a sudden asthma attack, but continues constantly. 

Is there alternatives to treating asthma without having to use an inhaler?

My son is currently on Albuterol and Qvar. We also own a nebulizer machine for emergencies. I am just looking for other alternatives (herbal or homeopathic or spiritual)for treating asthma.(If any)


YES! I used to have chronic asthma - could not even walk up a few stairs without needing my inhaler and now I am totally cured and never wheeze or need an inhaler.
Firstly, I took a course of BUTEYKO. This is a powerful but simple method which


have you tried him on singulair? I believe it's indicated for asthma but it's an oral treatment. of course the pills (at least the adult ones) are about the size of a nickel, but at least it's a pill.


I would suggest to find a hypnotherapist who works with children. I know about loads of people very successful threaten for their asthma on this way.

The most effective treatment for asthma is identifying triggers, such as pets or aspirin, and limiting or eliminating exposure to them. Desensitization to allergens has been shown to be a treatment option for certain patients.

Vanilla covered it pretty well, but I will add that this disease varies widely from person to person in it's manifestations. Most asthmatics require at least a long acting bronchodilator(Serevent, Formoterol or Spiriva) and a rescue, or quick acting bronchodilator
