Asthma Types covers the causes, signs, symptoms and treatment, along with what you can do to fight this disease.

Asthma Types

Causes Of Asthma:

Asthma Types include "Allergic" (due to allergies) or "Infection" (due to respiratory infections).  Since both types share most symptoms and treatment, we'll cover then together.  Causes can include heredity, allergies (pollen, dust, perfumes, smoke, even foods), exercise, stress or fatigue.  The severity of Asthma attacks can range from slight difficulty breathing to death.

Signs And Symptoms Of Asthma:

Difficulty breathing is usually the first sign.  A persistent, dry, unproductive cough and wheezing is common.  When the cough produces stuff (sputum), it's usually thick, clear, milky or yellow.  With Asthma, it's more difficult to exhale than to inhale.  Tightness in chest.  Obvious, conscious use of breathing muscles.

Treatment Of Asthma:

Infection Asthma treatment starts with discovering and treating the underlying infection...usually with antibiotics.  All other asthma treatments are the same, regardless of the type.  Doctors usually treat Asthma attacks with steroids and other drugs that relieve the blockage.  Then, we're given an emergency inhaler for urgent breathing needs (usually Albuterol).  If this is needed more than a couple times a week, any one of several different Asthma drugs are available to maintain normal breathing so the Albuterol isn't needed as much. 

What You Can Do About Asthma:

Learn to avoid the foods and other things that trigger attacks.  This could include filtering the air in the home. 

Note:  I have a whole house high efficiency (HEPA) filtering system on my home air system.  For about $ 500 initially and about $ 50 per year in replacement filters, it helps with my Asthma and Marsha's allergies.  Glen

Other things that can greatly help include losing excess weight, drinking enough water and regular aerobic exercise.  To help fight the causes of this disease you can Supplement your diet with natural Multi-Vitamins and Multi-Minerals, along with extra doses of the following:

Vitamin C
Organic Germanium; 100-450mg divided into 3 doses a day.
Omega 3; 3 per day, 1 at beginning of each meal.
Niacin; better in a timed release formula.

Complete Healing:

We both know there are no guaranteed cures, whether in medicine, nutrition, herbs or anything else.  Complete healing...including mind, body and possible, from God.  If you want God's help with your health problem, go to Healing From God.
