My Aunt had Asthma for more then 20 years, shw had tried all types treatment but of no help. Now she is doing Pranayam and Sujog therapy.
Her attack had completely stopped. Request all of you to please try this option. My 3 year old son also gets Asthma attack, But he cant do pranayam and Sojog therapy. Please help let me know that to do. Alcohol makes my asthma worse and half the time triggers an attack. I can't count the number of times I've been out with my friends, had a few sips of alcohol and bolted for my inhaler. So far coffee is the only thing that helps me when I don't have my medicine.
Only prob with that for me is i gotta ussually stretch out a few beers all through the day, in the winter time i exceed dosage on my albuterol inhaler, but its all i can do. Now this may sound crazy but i have the worst case of asthma ive been incubaited, and have been suffering for years. One night i had one of thy most worst asthma attack ive ever had I then fell asleep.. My 18 month old was just diagnosed with severe asthma. This after a two trips to the hospital with pneumonia in less than 12 months.
I think milk makes him worse, and if I am not mistaken honey should not be given til he is 2. The dr prescribed a ton of meds to take every day, an d it worries me. One of the inhaled meds has increase in respirtary viruses as a side effect. This after both cases of pneumonia were started with an everday respritory virus. Most of these things suggested don't sound like they would work for a toddler so I am trying to find some solutions.
I mix one part Apple Cider Vinegar Braggs raw, unprocessed kind from the health food store. The kind that has what is called, the "mother" in it.
Not the kind at the grocers because that has or is processed with pine tar. You don't want that kind One part raw unprocessed local honey and as many cloves fresh garlic as you think you may want. Usually about 10 - 12 is enough. Chop up the garlic as fine as you can. If you have a blender or food processor use that to mix it all up well. If not then chop the garlic as fine as you can. Mix it all together in a glass jar keep it refrigerated. Take a spoonful twice a day as a preventative or take one spoonful when an attack comes on.
And be sure to drink a glass of water with it. You can put a couple spoons of this in a glass of water or you can take the remedy straight and chase it with the water. Drink water with it. I always get an attack after cutting grass! Does anyone else have this too?
I want some relief and was told cola helps because of the caffeine but it does not help me. I wheeze and cough alot during the evening.
What can I do to help breathe better. Yes, I've also heard of the Buteyko method of breathing which apparently dramatically lessens asthma symptoms. They teach classes for it and must be more info online. A little more work to it I'm sure but please give it a try. I know there a many factors that can aggravate chronic asthma.
My biggest triggers are stress, fatigue and cigarette smoke!! I swear to God I need a gas mask just to get past these individuals when I get to work!!! In any event, I find that getting adequate sleep helps tremendoulsy and exercise is the BEST, it really does help expand your lung capacity!! However, on those hot, humid, muggy days of summer, I need to stay in air conditioning and there is no way around it! Good luck to all and Godspeed!! I've had asthma most of my life all year round day in and day out which was very well controlled due to me using my albuterol mist machine daily.
When I turned 11 my Aunty in Cambodia sent my Mother this black liquid for me to take twice a day everyday. My Aunty made it. I don't know what plant it is derived from, but it is very bitter. I am now 21 and my asthma is only triggered when I catch the flu. So October - January are the months I'm prone to geting asthma so I have to make sure I never forget my flu shot ever again. Dragonfruit helps too my Mother always incorporated that with my daily diet. It helps strengthen the lungs.
It's expensive here though it's 7 bucks a pop!! I recently was diagnosed with asthma and have been struggling with how to deal with it. I dont have any of the common symptoms such as shortness of breath or weezing, but rather a chronic and annoying cough. Its dry and sounds similar to a sneeze. Ive been using my inhaler as directed but to no relief. I am going to try the honey. Several people have mentioned peppermint and cough drops and I have found both of those helpful.
I used to crush peppermint leaves in water when I was a kid and I would go to my great aunt's house. She had cats and I am allergic to cats. Thus, my asthma would be triggered. As far as cold air, I believe that different things work for different people. I have most definitely found that humid, cold, winter outside air constricts my airways. But air from your freezer is very dry and it is easy to believe it could have a different effect. Many people have mentioned using steam from a hot shower.
For me, steam makes it more difficult to breathe. I once went into a sauna and could not breathe at all. I think it is important to find out what works for you.
My asthma tends to come and go for periods of time, usually related to stress, and during these periods it can be set off very easily. For a couple of months, I could not walk 3 minutes to work without completely stopping breathing and then vomiting.
Of course, any type of run will automatically set it off no matter what. I'm actually taking my nebulizer treatment right now. But it's so hot, and oh yea, the heat is another one of my triggers. What is going to work for some will not work for others and may in fact cause the attack in the first place. Relax, find what works for you. My 2 yr old was diagnosed with asthma almost a year ago.
We have been trying some of the suggestions here and found the warm bath with epsom salts and ginger tea with crushed garlic and honey worked very well. Black coffee is a stimulant that works for some people, but not suggested for people with reactions to coffee obviously.
This is a nice site that offers many different suggestions. The following is simply FACT! Dairy causes musuc build up and frankly isn't good for anyone, asthma or no asthma. Cold air, cold drinks, cold anything, is NOT good for asthma.
I know some may say, well they tried it and it works for them. I'm sorry but what ever else you were doing or whatever else you took is what may have helped you. Drinking very cold water or any drink isn't good for anyone let alone an asthma sufferer. Very cold causes a sort of shock to the body and lungs, airways ect. It is always best to drink room temp or best to drink warm drinks especially with asthma. These are no opinions or things that I've tried or not tried they are facts.
As I said those who believe the opposite are not crazy or anything, they are just not correct in thinking those thing did in fact help them. It was a coincidence or whatever, it was simply not the Milk or the cold drink, air, or stickin their head in the freezer that helped them. They say the best place to live if you suffer from asthma is a dry hot place such as Arizona.
Unfortunately the worse place to be is a place that's cold and humid. Things like drinking a potion with milk or just milk alone or going in the cold is a potential deadly thing to do all the time.
It may have worked for one once but sometime or another it could be what does you in. I don't know if anyone knows what Croup is, but its a condition that causes respitory problems usually in babies to about 6 years old, sometimes even adults.
It can actually cure it for the short term. You could be on your way to the hospital and just going out in the cold air on your way could have you arrive and not need to even be seen by the time you get there. As, the cold air took are of the problem. That is simply fact! Cold air stops Croup. Warm air can help asthma, and the opposite goes for each condition. The hot closes off the airways totally and the victim can not breath at all.
The best thing to do with Croup is to take the person outside hopefully where it is cool outside, as Croup is usually much worse and becomes much worse at night, and have them breath the cold night air and it stops the croup attack.
They sell warm air and cold air humidifiers, you would never use a warm air humidifier on a Croup sufferer, and you would never use a cold air humidifier on an asthmatic sufferer. They will tell you just that.
Believe me if you are misinformed and take a Croup sufferer into a warm aired bathroom with the hot water steamed into the room and stay in there with a croup sufferer you can and would almost certainly kill them or come close to it. I do believe there are many potions and old remedies that can help asthma, too many to write. Vitamin C is a good idea for everyone, especially asthma suffers, it should be taken all the time, not just when you are having trouble.
It is an immune system booster and helps a host of things, but you need to take it all the time. Taking some vitamin C while having real trouble with asthma isn't going to help you that quickly.
So it needs to be a life style thing. And good old honey and lemon in hot water, cooled enough to drink is always good, surely can't hurt you.
Its also been long known that caffeine durning trouble with asthma can help as it speeds up the blood flow and in turn opens up the airways. That's just something that makes sense. It does work, but if you are having an attack of course you don't want to fool around.
I believe the inhalers are over used and in time not only don't work as well anymore, but are really bad for your heart in the long term. For those who have chronic asthma it should be at least something to look into with a GOOD specialist to try Singular.
I've know many who had been on inhalers for years and they went on singular, one pill a day and they no longer ever needed their inhalers. That and serious life style changes. Stay away from known triggers. You may know some of them and you may need to learn some of them. Allergic things will cause your asthma to be worse and simple taking those things out of your life can make a huge difference.
Obviously if dust, mold causes you problems, stay away from it. Have air cleaners all over your home makes a huge difference, wear a mask when you can't avoid dust.
Use cotton bedding only and change your bedding often, use non allergic soaps and never be around or use perfumed anything if its a trigger. Some simple things can change your life, you just have to be willing to learn the triggers and when ever possible remove them from your life.
If you can do this you could see a day you can throw away your inhaler and best of all, breath! Sorry if I offended anyone with anything I wrote, but I really am just trying to help. Asthma is no fun and if you could stop the causes of it rather thanm find ways to treat the symptoms, you would be so much better off.
Of course in the mean time you want to have things and options of things that can help your symptoms, but the best thing to do is find the cause and get rid of it if you can. Obviously if you're allergic to say a pine tree and you have to go outside and be around pine trees what can you do? Well, you can have air cleaners in your home so they clean the inside air so you don't have that trigger bother you at least while you're inside your own home.
And that goes for dust. The air cleaners take most of the the dust away and if you've never had them before you will be amazed that you may sleep better just from something that simple. Stop drinking milk, or whatever else you may be allergic to, find out, get tested.
Removing things from your diet can change your life. You may be allergic to something your eating and its causing your asthma. Simply removing it from your diet can be life changing.
There is another fact, people actually crave things they are allergic to. Ok I have so much more I could write but I think I'll stop now.
My advice is learn about asthma and allergies. Don't wait for a doctor to just pass out medications for life that are harmful to your body in the long term or hope all the home remedies may help you. You are always going to be treating the symptoms rather than curing yourself.
Wouldn't it be so much better to say you have asthma but you have not had any problems with it anymore? Because you found the triggers and removed them from your life. What if the one food you ate the most was the whole problem? Or the dog or the dust or the fabric or fragrance you have in your life all the time is what's causing all your problems.
And removing that stops all your flare ups. Wouldn't that be just life changing? I sure know it would. I had 4 family members who suffered for a long time, until I researched the heck out of the condition and made the changes and all 4 no longer use any medication or have had an asthma attack in many many years. There is the occasional time when one may get a cold and that triggers a flare up of asthma but nothing on a daily basis.
Its not fun, and can take some work, but simple things like changing your bedding, buying air cleaners, removing fregrances, using cotton clothing and bedding, stop eating allergic foods and gicing up dairy especially milk along with a few other things is sure worth not having to worry about asthma anymore.
Hope more will take the time to make the changes, get the education they need and change their life forever. Cold air is all I can breath. I can not take warm or hot baths and showers, 1 breath of steam just locks me tight as a drum and I'll loose consciousness, to waken in the E. After a dozen times I try not do this anymore. Warm and Hot air or water is a emergency ambulance to the E. So you see, Asthma can effect some people totally different from your own experience and that does not make anyone wrong, just different.
I have had asthma all me life and have been able to avoid using an emergency inhaler for most of my attacks. I am now in my 30s and end up having to renew my perscriptions because the medication expires not because I run out. I have always stopped what I was doing, Sat down with my head between my knees and concentrated on breathing as much as possible during an attack.
Any hot drink usually provides some sort of releif as does cold air, steam and honey in different situations. If I have an attack, for instance, caused by breathing cold air, I need hot air to make it better. The most important thing to remember is that you have to breathe and concentrate on ways to do it. I found that the freezer really works, cold air outside does not coffee doesn't work for me either, what I find helpfull sometimes when I don't have my Inhaler handy is heavy breathing but on a normal pace not fast nor slow just like when one wants to meditate the 4x 2x 4x 2 technique, once again thanx to all for submitting help or contributions it surely helped me in a lot of uncomfortable situations.
What works for one person may not for another. Heat doesn't work for me, but cold does. Sticking my head in the freezer sounds like a great idea. Don't call me a liar or say I'm a fraud. If it doesn't work for you, don't do it! I think you folks should look into that. You might as well have been treating the wrong form of disease. It is past three in the morning, and I feel fine being awake.
Seriously, I need help. I am going to try the coffee remedy. I wish I could go see a doctor but I do not have a job and no health insurance right now. I agree with frankie about what was left by Steve. Cold air is one of my triggers. I hate to go outside in the winter here in Colorado just for that one reason. No one mentions steaming much. But inhaling steam several times a day and coughing out does help a lot and seems to be ignored by most everyone or not heard of. I had an inhaler prescribed last yr and never used it until now that I got a viral infection and now using the inhaler several times a day hoping for it, the virus to leave.
I was a dairy milk freak but not anymore - I expect to lose a lot of weight and I my appetiite is pretty much gone for now.
Does anyone else also suffer from swallowing issues with food - this had been hammering me the last several yrs as well as anxiety attacks. Or am I just all screwed up and asthma is my last stand? Cruched garlic with pickle juice, helps me when I have an attack.
Once a week, to prevent an attack. I grew up in the East with hay fever then moved to California and my hay fever disappeared. Now I live in Nevada and my allergies have returned in late Sept-Oct due to sage brush and rabbit brush. Unfortunately my allergies now come with a dose of asthma too.
I now know what that is like. Just today my haircutter put half a dropper of Stinging Nettle under my tongue and my breathing improved within minutes. I am going to buy some asap. It is a natural remedy and she says everyone who has ever tried it is completely satisfied with its effectiveness.
You should be sure that it is non alcohol. How come no one else has mentioned this remedy at this site? I will report back my results soon. Anyone care to join me in this experiment? I had the worst attack I've ever had the other night - in the middle of the night. My asthma is from allergies, sometimes over the counter allergy treatments work and then sometimes they don't.
Still can't figure out what allergen triggered it. Can herbals trigger an attack. I recognize that the disease manifests it differently in different individuals. I am attempting to incorporate plant based formulas into a solution. Of course, there are inherent dangers of using plant based formulas, especially when you know you have allergies Modern pharmaceuticals are not without consequences! Here is a list of some plants that have antiasthmatic properties, perhaps there are some in your area that may help.
Reduce exposure to dustmites by: To help avoid toxins: Can your own food, farmer's market, Pick your own. Learn edible weeds, such as dandelion, and incorporate into diet. Detoxification is very important. Using natural fibers, when possible. Test the samples first. Avoid artificial dyes in food and clothing. Make your own personal care products and cleaning supplies. Allergies are complicated and individualized, but one common theme is the fact that we are all exposed to so many environmental toxins, our immune systems are taxed.
If we can help support our immune system, through diet, detox and minimized exposure to environmental triggers and pollutants. We may enable our bodies to regain control of this "emergency response system. As I eliminate one suspect, another takes the stage.
I have minimized dustmites, but I am still challenged by molds. I am trying to find a safe plant-based formula to rid my home of molds.
I cannot afford to move elsewhere. I do not wish to employ more toxic chemicals in the sollution. My allergies flare during winter months, because the house is closed up and indoor triggers such as dust mites and molds wreak havoc!
My 7 year old son was diagnosed 2 years ago,he nearly died in march because of the negligence of our health service,since then i have learnt about causes and triggers but not much on remedies,till today. One recommendation that everybody so far have seemed to have missed out? This came to my attention last week. I stay at my girlfriends a lot which seems to trigger my asthma and it carries over to other for a week or so when I go back to mine, slowly returning back to normal.
It only comes at night though Which is when I noticed this. Last week at mine she brought a large bottle of water up and drinking this water sporadically throughout the evening and whenever I woke up during the night really helped. A surprisingly large amount. It just helped me 5 minutes ago also.
That and other things e. Though I was never allergic to my dog? As for this ongoing argument? For some added info to the discussion, some years ago I was in Germany at a festival during the summer and the week before there had been heavy rain, so to soak up the damp grass they laid down lots, and lots, and lots of dry hay, only the next day the scorching sun beamed from the cloudless sky for the next week, creating a dry, dusty, boiling hot atmosphere in which for the first time in 10 years I had an asthma attack.
I was very lucky as I found a friend-of-a-friend who could see I was unwell just from the look on my face and became my angel when he brandished an inhaler some moments later. The fact is these conditions brought back the asthma that I had gleefully been without for the past 10 years. I though I was free of it forever: Besides, its cold and wet outside, the freezer stinks of minced meat, and hovering over steaming bowl of hot water will only give me an afro.
Please, no freezers, no ovens, no swedish saunas. Everyone needs to try OregaResp formerly Oregacyn , a natural product that will virtually eliminate asthma Ask someone at your local health food store The testimonials on this stuff is unbelievable!!
Some ppl had been on 9 or more asthma medications for years and they've virtually eliminated all of their meds by taking this one product!! Hey Guys why are you fighting over the cold air subject with asthma treatment. Well As everyone knows asthma has to do with swelling of bronchi and inflammation which makes it difficult breathing. The way to easy breathing is the relaxation of the bronchioles, which can be achieved in number of ways.
If your trigger is not cold air and anything else then cold air would help. Cold air would and exposing to cold would boost your blood pressure above normal in order to maintain the temperature of body and organs.
Increased blood pressure releases a material called Corticosteroid in the body whose main function is to suppress your Immune system. So Immune system suppression helps to reduce the inflammation which is in direct relation with hypersensitivity to external trigger. This corticosteroid is the same material that doctor would suggest you to treat ur inflammation in the lungs but in this case it is produced naturally.
They make ur system less responsive to stimuli and thus ur life is easy. Cold air would produce the same steroid naturally which suppress immune and is dangerous at the same time as you may catch cold , flu thats y it is not recommended until really necessary. If you guys understood its fine, if not u can still ask me a question. A quick fix for an asthma attack that works for me is: This works for me but sadly it doesn't always last long.
My son is 2 years old and has asthma. My son can't do many of those things listed. And i havent given him any milk because he just wouldnt take it thank goodness i read that its bad for asthmatics! Usually he doesnt have a problem with milk but he has rejected it because he isn't feeling well.
Is there anything 2 year old friendly that may help?? My uncles both had asthma for quite some time. Inhalers, nebulizers, various steroids, antibiotics nothing worked. Then they went to a Chiropractor in our area and with significant changes in diet and being adjusted regularly they both are off all the meds and no longer have attacks of asthma or the chronic bronchitis that always followed their attacks.
This guy is in PA and he gets absolutely amazing results taking care of kids and adults. I have found some things that have worked for me Taking an allergy medicine like allegra daily, rubbing camphor oil on my back, chest and kidneys nightly; and writing down all my frustrations to help get them off my chest.
Magnesuim relaxes the bronchials. Some inhalers deplete your Magnesium which can make you more dependant upon them! Definiately try the camphor oil it WILL do the trick I've been using it for a week now and I have gotten my life back! I even forgot I am an Asthmatic! I have really bad asthma, and I can't afford my medication, so there are times when I don't have anything. I have to keep a straw on me. Breathing in and out slowly through the straw seems to help me breath better.
Thanks for all the great tips guys ;-. Well, i have run out of my inhaler and cant get it refilled till tomorrow. Im having a wicked hard time breathing and just want to thank everyone for their suggestions. Im gunna give a few a try, and hopefully something works. I heard about the onions too, you cut them and add sugar and when they release juices you take tb few times a day as mentioned in one of the above comments.
I have asthma and control it by symbicort, and now my daughter has cold asthma and it kills me just to see her suffer when her medicine isn't helping. Yes i believe in home remedies they can cure you I haven't tried any because I don't know which one to try first and because I spent my life using the inhalers and turbuhalers and never gave natural remedies a chance so if anyone has an advice please list it.
I have read all your comments and all are great. I have had asthma for 60 years. There is a tolerence level of all toxins in your body that needs to be maintained. Fat cells store these toxins, so the less fat you have on your body the better. How do you get rid of the fat. Eat right meaning cut the processed foods, eat god's pure organic fruits and vegetables as much as possible, they were put here for a reason, and drink alot of pure water to hydrate. Water makes you eliminate these toxins and purifies throught the kidneys and liver.
Exercise builds up your lungs, like getting a "second wind. Avoid the tiggers as much as possible, be clean, and if you are in shape, your body will fight these better. The problem is that this is hard to do and have fun in life in this world of indulgence. The solution is moderation in all that you do. I would recommend the paper back book "Nutriutional Healing," look under Asthma and do what is says.
It is a drastic step, but I guarantee if you follow the advice and do what they say, you will be in the best shape mentally and physically than you ever have. The problem is sticking with the program. If you really have asthma bad enough, give it a try, start with the fast, juicing, and green drinks, and let me know how you feel. I have had asthma since I was a young teenager and I know that cold air is not good for my asthma. It will take my breath away. Warm moist air using a scarf over the mouth helps keep the air moist and warm.
I don't think you should use cold air and especially cold dry air as a rememdy. I know dairy makes me more congested so I avoid it. Pineapple juice helps me bring up phlem from my lungs. Maybe it will work for you. I am desperately searching for helpful treatments. My daughter is six years old and has had an awful winter with her asthma. Over the past 9 weeks she has had to be on an oral steriod six times. We have a nebulizer and we have used it over and over. Ten or so treatments a day with some back to back and taking a hot shower to breathe in the mist isn't working anymore.
She has been on Singulair about five weeks now. We had tried Asthmanex for about three weeks and just switched to Advair a week ago. She just finished the Prednisalone and is already coughing again.
Honey can be given to children over the age of 1yr. If cold air is your trigger, my son uses a scarf or bandanna over his mouth when going outside in the winter.
Forcing him to breath through his nose or "pre-warmed" air through his mouth prevents "cold air" attacks in the winter. Look for hidden mold in the home. My cousin developed severe asthma for about a year and upon remodeling, found severe mold beneath some flooring and in the air ducts. Remodeling done and asthma was gone. Always use your own pillow.
He's now 11 yrs old. I've been reading up on Oil of Oregano and Colloidal Silver. Will post more if we have success. Thank you all for your great advice. I am and had asthmas as a kid- but mainly when I had a cold- or bad allergies. Mom smoked and as soon as I moved out- at my asthma went away. On occassion it would return briefly from allergies- cats are a big trigger.
My partner has cats and I have been ok with them for almost 2 years- then the asthma began to resurface. I hate- hate- hate -taking any pharmaceuticals- and found myself using albuterol on occassion. Then after about another year- I was using it more and more. I began running and found that the exercise would bring on an attack- normal- but still, I was not hapoy with this asthma. I went to the Dr and prescribed Flovent- I took it for two weeks- helped with asthma but made me feel really cruddy- dizzy, out- of sorts..
The asthma was getting pretty bad. I kepot using the rescue inhaler- albuterol and that was making me really dizzy. So I went back on Flovent- and after ten days I was so sad.
I pride myself on being really healthy and I could not bear to think that this asthma was going to change that- because the Flovent made me feel awful.. God bless you all.. I immediately stopped both inhalers- and although I drink a pretty good amount of water already- I doubled it the first night. And, I used my Neti Pot 2 x day- and used eucalyptus inhalers It has been almost 4 days and I have not used an inhaler- nor have I had asthma.
The water is a huge factor for me.. I am going to start taking local bee pollen and watch the way I breath.. I don't know how long before the steroids leave my system from the Flovent My daughter was sprayed with insect repellant on a school camp and immediately had a sore throat. She came home from camp unable to talk and has now started having asthma attacks. Thrilling to say the least. Anyway this site has given me plenty of alternatives to try and we are not going down the conventional medical road.
I just finished reading all the comments for me going dairy free worked and taking coffee. I have prednisone pills collected to take instead of going to the hospital.
If your really bad in the emerge beg for prednisone pills. I have suffered with asthma since I was about 2 years old, your alleries are the triggers for your asthma attacks The suggestion of drinking water is a good one, it wont get rid of your asthma but will help prevent attacks as dehydration is a major trigger. Also Buteyko method of breathing through your nose is also very good at preventing attacks as it is the natural way of breathing I cannot stress enough how important it is to stay calm and relax your shoulders and steady your breathing, hyperventillating will cause your airway to narrow and become increasingly difficult to breath.
Please be cautious of what you try from these posts, cold air is a trigger and will not help you long term, alcohol is a VERY bad idea as it can cause restriction as a result of your bodies natural rejection to alcohol.
Finally please, please, please always have your medication at hand, it is just not worth the risk Sammie post 68 , your post was a little insulting and also a bit ignorant. As MANY have posted and attested to, what works for one may not work for all, especially if what worked for some is a trigger for others.
When I moved to the hot south is when the onset happened. If it doesn't work we move on to coffee and that gets the job done.
I have been suffering from asthma since I was 2 yrs. Mekeila you should see your doctor about your Asthma, they will prescribe a preventer inhaler for you that will stop your breathing trouble;-. I used to wake up in the middle of the night having asthma attacks Other times when i didnt have a bag, but had an attack I would put my hands together like I was praying and would put my hands to my mouth and breath. It really helped me get thru those scary times.
I am no doctor but sounds like when u breathe into a paperbag the amount of carbon dioxide in the bag slowly increases and when u read about the Buteyko method of breathing..
Thanks for sharing that My mom in law who suffered from Asthma for 20 years is not totally free of asthma.. Hope this works for everyone.. I think its best to encourage them to have more active play time.. God Bless all of you. My mom in law who suffered from Asthma for 20 years is now totally free of asthma.. Hi, all As for the cold air debate, it works for some and not others.
I am a chronic asthma sufferer and summertime is my worst season, winter season is the opposite. So again cold air works for some and not others. Has anyone tried changing their diet? I have had asthma since I was 2. I am now This doesn't mean you need a Rx. I like to take the 12 hour Zyrtec D, or the off brand that walgreens carries. Walmart's doesn't work for me.
It is kind of expensive for me, so I tried something different. It is the pseudophed sinus and allergy. In Montana you have to get it behind the pharmacy counter.
I get 48 pills, and you take them every hours. It works just as well. It just seems fresher to me. Might be a mental thing, though. I don't have insurance, so I don't have any Rx medicine that I take. One day I stumbled upon an over the counter inhaler called Primetine Mist. It is pure adrenaline, and it actually works way better than the new albuterol inhalers, in my opinion.
Found at most box stores. Know what makes you feel aweful and keep it in mind. If you choose to put yourself through that, be prepared. I carry allergy medicine and an inhaler at all times. It calms me down and I can breathe better. When I was little, my Mom and Grandma used to have me lay over their legs while they were sitting down, so my back was facing up and my chest was slightly lower than my hips.
Then they would pat my back with a cupped hand. It made me feel better. It loosened the gunk in my chest and relaxed me. I would fall asleep all the time! I tried the inhaler but it dosent work. However it doesn't seem to be working.
It is the only thing so far that works for her. I was told that it has a lot to do with the region I live. We live in the NE corridor and get some nasty Cold and Flu seasons. We were told that if we moved to Florida the Asthma will go away. Is It true that the Sun and Salt Air really make that big of a difference? I just need to know. I've learned from experience to smoke a joint of herb during an attack and the attack will stop within mins. The only thing that seems to help for me is getting cold air, found having a fan going all night in the bedroom helps drastically as well.
The inhalation of honey while an attack helped my dog! For those of you who keep talking about cold air. First off, the medication in the inhaler is a crystaline solution that is compressed.
While in the capsule it is COLD to keep it crystalized don't believe me just touch the metal. Secondly, if you've ever used a nebulizer you'll notice that the vapor solution that you inhale is also cool until you breath out obviously the exhaled air from your body will be warm and look like steam. I'm not saying that the coolness is what helps the asthma, it is needed to deliver the medication in whatever form, but notice how it doesn't hurt.
Cold, dry air will contract the bronchioli in the lungs for those who have trouble breathing, but during an attack they are inflamed and the cool air will bring down the inflamation.
At the same time, steam will help break up and loosen the mucus that your body produces and also have a cooling effect once the air entering your lungs is cooler again relative to the steam. Basically you want to control mucus production and keep inflamation down in addition to the other things that people have said like keeping heart rate and breathing rate down.
During times of an extreme episode where my heart rate is extremely high, caused by either the asthma attack itself or the stimulation of the ventolin inhailer, I place an ice cube or something cool on either my neck, over the coratid artery, or directly over my heart and I also do the breathing exercises that were previously mentioned in through the nose out through the mouth. This helps slow down my breathing and quickly cool the body.
Please stop saying that you know for a fact that cool air will definitely make it worse like Sammie says for a definite fact in post 68 although there are some other useful bits of information in that long post. Listen to the Dr. Franz in post Knowing what triggers your attacks and prevention are the best things you can do.
For me the mucus and phlegm and wheezing is the worst part, it keeps me up at night and only allows me to get maybe hours of sleep in a row max. If if that's the case for you then, stay away from caffeinated drinks because they will dehydrate you in the long run if it provides you with temporary relief then try switching to a warm drink without caffeine like peppermint tea and will just solidify and dry the mucus and mucus membranes in your lungs.
Drink lots of water and eat foods that contain lots of water fruits and veggies to break up the mucus to be expelled by coughing or through the gut. Using common sense over all these other quick fix remedies will be your best bet. I am suffering from short breath and pain in chest. I feel tightness in my chest everytime. In the begining the doctors said I was suffering from depression but now they are saying that I have asthma the problem is there isn't any wheezing. Please if someone can tell me what to do.
This is the worst information i have ever heard, you obviously know nothing about the causes of asthma. Im not even going to correct you as the horrendous information supplied indicates that you are either moronic or used a quick google search and just re-pasted and made the rest up. Pathetic to think that people will actually take on board your misinformation, hope you re-evaluate you career because helpfulness is not your forte.
It really wouldnt surprise me if you said dunk your head in a bath and inhale, as this improves your lung capacity, Dumbass. As this wont get on your page due to selective cleansing methods to make you look beneficial, I wish you all the worst and painful existance.
So much of this information is incorrect. As an asthma sufferer for over 21 years, I have taken nearly every medication available other than prednisone daily, my entire life. Most of the "remedies" above may be good for the occasional asthmatic, not for the chronic sufferer. Asthma can be debilitating for many, so it was for me. My search for relief after lots of steroid abuse took me to natural therapies. These Biogetica products are a unique blend of eastern herbs and resonance homeopathic remedies, which work together to eliminate the root cause of asthma.
These products helped me by reducing the intensity and frequency of my asthma attacks and controlled my sensitivity to allergens. They are the best alternatives to steroids and bronchodilators; safe and non habit forming. Whenever you are experiencing an asthma attack, the first thing to do is to chill!!
If u do so, the rate of adrenaline in your body increases and so do your heart beat which ends up in your breathing. So,dear friends, do it psychologically.. Then seek medical help ASAP with the same zen attitude. I have found out that over-eating is a great detriment for asthma!! Cold is definitely a minus point, but not all people body metabolism are the same.. Oily stuffs, butter, peanuts, spicy stuffs, sugar, alcohol and cold drinks should unfortunately be banned!!
Inscribe yourself to a gym! Get plenty of exercises to keep yourself in a good shape. As from today, your water intake shoud be doubled.
It helps in removing the toxins in the body. Always keep more than 2 inhalers with you, in case Go for greeny meals! Lettuces and watercress for examples. Its a must for all asthmatics!! Avoid all dusty and cold environments simply! Do the music therapy to avoid stress and depressions! Body hygiene is very very very important! I did a big research on Asthma and finally succeeded in it: I have tried everything what my friends have told, but the fact is that: Those people with Asthma will have constipation problems, they are not removing the toxins from their body, and it try to come out of the lungs..
I had Asthma for 12 years and 1 year back i went to a stage i could not even walk steps.. I lost my weight from 70 kgs to 61 kgs, my face looked pale I took lot of Allopathic medicines, it really worsens my disease What I did to cure: I went for Sidha medicine, this type of medicine are all herbal, no side effects, like english medicines you will not find the solution in a day If you have 15 years of asthma..
After taking these medicine If you are taking albuterol, ventolin, advair.. Except herbal nothing can cure you not only asthma After taking sidha medicines continuously for one year Now i gained my original weight of 68 kgs The secret is sidha medicine..
I know its a little late by about 2 years but I just felt I should point out that ice is NOT denser than water, and that cold air clearly helps some but not everyone. I suggest Glutathione tablet and Centrum Multi Vitamins, we have to make our body more stronger! I think you may have chronic bronchitis instead of asthma. Do yourself the favor and consult another doctor to get a second opinion. I have lived in AZ for the past 20 years and have horrible asthma.
Get your facts straight. Freezer tip worked for me, but only for a short time. Try making yourself sneeze and it will help get your breath back. Hot steam, hot tea, keep warm. Ijust got diagnosed with astmah this year nd within 6 months ihave been to tha hospital 3x nd visited by EMS bout 6x. It makes me scared dat it could get worse. Nothing ihave done helps me.
Nd to make things worse wen ihave a astmah attack istart to hyperventilate nd realli cnt calm down enough to control my breathing.
