Understanding Asthma

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the lungs characterized by episodic and reversible symptoms of airflow obstruction and increased airway responsiveness to a variety to stimuli.

Asthma is one of more serious and disabling allergic conditions. Ancient Greeks were the first to recognize asthma as a breathing disorder. It was used by Hippocrates (460- 370 BC) to denote certain types of breathing difficulties. The Greeks gave the name asthma meaning “panting” or “I gasp for breath”.

WHAT AND WHEN IS AN ASTHMA EMERGENCY?

In people with asthma, the airways are supersensitive and tend to overreact. (This tendency is sometimes referred to as twitchiness.) In each asthma attack, or flare, the muscles wrapped around the air tubes contract, squeezing them and making them narrower. Then there is less room for air to flow through. At the same time, the linings of the airways become inflamed and swollen, making it even more difficult for air to flow. This causes the wheezing that is often heard in people with asthma. During asthma flares, a lot of thick mucus is produced. This mucus, in addition to white blood cells and cells that have been shed from the lining of the airways, sometimes form plugs that block the small airways. The persistent cough that is a symptom of asthma is the result of trying to bring up the mucus during a flare.

Breathing is a two-way street, with air flowing in and out of airways at different times. The problem in asthma is not with breathing in but with breathing out. When there is an asthma flare, there is a traffic jam in which used air cannot get out of the lungs, so not enough fresh air can get in.

When all this happens, the person with asthma obviously has trouble breathing. He or she breathes more rapidly to try to get more air through the blocked airways. The ribs pull in and the heart races. If the case is severe, the person perspires. He or she cannot speak a whole sentence without gasping for breath after every few words. The skin may turn a bluish color (from lack of oxygen). The frequency and severity of the symptoms vary greatly from person to person.

WHAT CAN BE DONE?

Allergies appear and affect people in many ways; we need to look for them to find them. You may not find them until you realize that allergies may be causing frequent attacks of everyday common colds and flu to severe asthma; mild itching and hives or skin rashes to severe eczema; poor concentration and mild learning disability to severe attention deficit disorders and autism, mild temper tantrums and mood swings to severe depression and suicide attempts; or unaddressed mild behavioral problems ending up in severe criminal activities as adults.

NAET ALLERGY ELIMINATION = ASTHMA FREE

Yes, the answer is finally here. A noninvasive technique that works to clear the asthma in the person afflicted. It’s a natural, drugless, painless, non-invasive method that can be used safely from a one-day-old infant to anyone of advanced age. Allergens and chemicals are cleared (treated) with this technique. Best results are obtained if allergens are cleared in a specific sequence.

Generally, the protocol is to treat the basic ten allergens first. Then treat using priority if the asthma is still not gone. In most cases, within 13 to 20 treatments, remarkable changes will be noticed in their frequency, and intensity. The best advice is to learn to recognize and have the allergen treated before becoming severely food and chemically sensitive. The body wants to stay in balance and it will heal with the proper treatments.
