Asthma is one of the most common respiratory diseases in the world today.
What is Asthma?
Asthma is a respiratory condition marked by attacks of spasm in the bronchi of the lungs, causing difficulty in breathing. It is usually connected to allergic reaction or other forms of hypersensitivity.
Normally, the airways of your lungs are open, allowing the air you breathe to move in and out easily. When you have asthma, exposure to inhaled irritants, or triggers, can cause the walls of your airways to become inflamed and the muscles around the airways to tighten up. This makes your airways narrower, leaving less room for air to flow.
Some effective, holistic ways of treating asthma that can help prevent and reduce attacks.
Home remedies for asthma that don’t require taking prescription medications or even using inhalers include:
Limiting irritant exposure.
Reducing food allergies.
Improving gut health.
Supplementing with vitamin D or getting more naturally from the sun.
Maintaining a healthy weight.
Build your immunity with the following:
Garlic: because of its anti-inflammatory properties.
Ginger: because it decreases inflammation and a recent study showed that oral ginger supplements were linked to improvement in asthma symptoms.
Turmeric: because it has been the subject of a number of studies and has been found to have anti-allergy properties.
If you suffer with Asthma, be comforted by the fact that you are in good company.
