Experiencing episodes of breathlessness and/or shortness of breath and/or whistling-wheezy sound in chest on breathing?
You may have asthma!
Asthma is a chronic condition with inflammation of airways (bronchial tubes) that narrows, swell and produce extra mucus. This makes breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath, especially when exposed to a substance the person is sensitive to or an event that changes their breathing pattern.
Asthma may be a minor life disturbance but for some people can be a major problem interfering with daily life activities. Asthma is not a term for episode or attacks, actually asthma is always there, but the symptoms may not appear until triggered by something that provokes a response in the body.
Asthma can be clinically cured/cared & controlled upto 99%; apparently asthma free with holistic healthful treatment and management. Patho-physiology of asthma often changes over time, thus it's important to work with your healer to keep track of asthma signs-n-symptoms; for customized treatment as needed.
