NATURAL WAYS OF REDUCING ASTHMA
The Oxford dictionary defines asthma as a respiratory condition marked by attacks of spasm in the bronchi of the lungs. It is basically a long-term condition that affects your tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs. Which implies someone with ‘sensitive’ airways that are inflamed usually suffers from this disease. It tends to run in families, especially when there’s also a history of allergies or smoking.
The person suffering from the disease face periods of wheezing (a whistling sound when you breathe), chest tightness, shortness of breath and cough and uneasiness while doing any work.
One in every 12 adults and one in every 11 children are affected by Asthma. It affects more boys than girls. Asthma in adults is more common in women than men.
It is not generally considered by doctors to be a serious illness in most people who have it, mainly due to the mildness of symptoms and the range of very effective medicines that control these symptoms and stop the disease to get worse. Asthma does, however, have an effect on quality of life because attacks can be unpleasant and distressing and can restrict activity. The life expectancy for mild asthmatics is the same as for those who do not have it, which is about 80 years.It is often hereditary. Almost 6.3 million people with this are under the age of 18.
Now the question arises that how does asthma treat?
It is not so much “treated” as it is “controlled”. As a chronic, long-term disease, there is no cure. However, there are ways to control asthma by either taking medicines or by different precautionary measures. By eating healthy and balanced diet and by doing exercise regularly one can mark a benchmark to gauge the process of recovery.
Exercising three times a week and following a healthy diet helped people have their symptoms in just two months.
The findings offer hope of a simple way of managing the condition for the 5.4million people in Britain currently receiving its treatment.
