Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airways to the lungs. It makes breathing difficult and can make some physical activities difficult or even impossible.
To understand asthma, you need to understand a little about what happens when you breathe. Normally, with every breath you take, air goes through your nose and down into your throat, into your airways, eventually making it to your lungs. There are lots of small air passages in your lungs that help deliver oxygen from the air into your bloodstream. Asthma symptoms occur when the lining of your airways swell and the muscles around them tighten. Mucus then fills the airways, further reducing the amount of air that can pass through.
• Mild intermittent asthma - Mild symptoms less than twice a week. Night-time symptoms less than twice a month. Few asthma attacks.
• Mild persistent asthma - Symptoms three to six times a week. Night-time symptoms three to four times a month. Asthma attacks might affect activities.
• Moderate persistent asthma - Symptoms three to six times a week. Night-time symptoms three to four times a month. Asthma attacks might affect activities.
• Severe persistent asthma - You have on going symptoms both day and night. They’re so frequent that you have to limit your activities.
Any disease or syndrome affecting the lung not only affects the lung but also makes the person unable to his day-to-day work comfortably. Our approach in the treatment of asthma or lung diseases is constitutional. We alleviate/repose the patient without steroids (steroids gradually make the patient sicker than he/she is in reality) in the comfort zone with constitutional remedies.
