So many people live with asthma and breathing problems these days! Is it the way of the world or just the law of surprises?
There are such a lot of people in the world now so has asthma become more common because of the amount of people? Attacks happen when the airway closes up and breathing becomes difficult. It is most disturbing and horrible to witness. Panic usually occurs which then exacerbates the problem. It becomes a vicious circle. Severe attacks can result in hospitalization on a nebuliser and even cause death. What a horrible thought!
We could always blame global warming!
Another theory is that it could have due to impurities in the air due to more traffic, all the CFCs that are used in toilets and cleaning materials. Destroying the ozone layer etc! Could it be genetic or hereditary? Whatever the cause it is not a pleasant complaint!
Even the very young can be sufferers of asthma and breathing problems.
So what can we do about it?
There are the obvious remedies like prescribed medication from the doctor, usually inhalers, which can be enough to keep the symptoms at bay.
A steamy type atmosphere can help so inhaling over a bowl of steaming water with a towel over your head can make breathing easier.
There are also the vapor type remedies containing eucalyptus which help clear the airways.
Using ioniser's to gather up the dust and small particles out of the atmosphere which will prevent you from inhaling them and clogging up your airways.
So what else can we do? We can take a look at natural remedies! Where do we start? We can visit the health food shop and see what they can recommend. Perhaps there are tablets or flower remedies or oils for inhalation or embrocation. Would honey have any benefits?
What about Aloe Vera! This amazing plant has so many beneficial properties that it could well be the answer! You can take it in drink form and with added cranberry and apple it contains pectins which will help relieve breathing problems. People who have been taking the gel for other reasons have found great improvement in their asthma as well. What a bonus! Not only do you feel wonderful but it also relieves symptoms of your asthma! Wow!
