Basic of Asthma

By Abel Alexander

Have you ever wondered where the word asthma came from? Let’s take a look at its origin and also learn of how ancient physicians interpreted Asthma.

Ancient beliefs actually connected asthma to the disconnection of the body and mind. That is how yoga was developed. The Hindu philosophers theorized that if you can control your breathing, this abnormal condition will go away. For the longest time, the way to deal with asthma is through meditation and yoga breathing.

Asthma is a disease that inflames the bronchial airways. The air we breathe through our nose go in via the larynx or vocal cords and tranchea or the windpipe and then settles in the lungs. We have two lungs and it is divided by a bronchi divide. The air then goes through the bloodstream via tiny blood vessels, better known as the capillaries. We exhale carbon dioxide and is returned out of the body. The bronchial tubes are the passage of the air in and out of the lungs.

It wasn’t until the 1800s when the stethoscope was invented id asthma was determined as a specific disease. Studies about it were done but many of the patients requested traditional healing methods such as herbs and smoking tobacco. None of these were particularly helpful though.

If you have a lot of allergies, have previous lungs disease and are in a bad weak point in your health, you may also develop this hyperreactivty condition. Several things may trigger this such as allergens, tobacco smoke, or exercise. However, this condition may not always have severe symptoms. To some people, they might not even feel their tubes are swollen.

Asthma is now a common and curable illness affecting one of every 15 children in America. There is a steady increase in reported cases in the last 20 years. The disease is curable but many still die of this.

The build up of general body strength and endurance is the best way to strengthen the lungs. Never tire yourself too much or expose yourself to dirty environment. Exercise in moderation and install dust collection systems in your home and office.
