Asthma, which is  a chronic condition that affects an overwhelming 20 million Americans, has dramatically risen worldwide over the past decades, particularly in developed countries, and experts are puzzled over the cause of this increase.

Furthermore, statistics reveal that asthma affects approximately 1 in 10 children in the United States, making it the most common chronic childhood disease to date.

During an asthma attack, the lung’s airways (bronchioles) become inflamed, contract and become lined with excessive amounts of mucous-causing a restriction of airflow and making it very difficult to breathe.

These attacks are often triggered by pollution or some environmental irritant like cigarette smoke, household cleaning agents, or other toxins. Other common triggers include a change in air temperature or humidity; stress, allergies, and physical exertion.

Chronic asthma can be a frightening condition which often requires vigilant medical management to prevent and minimize the occurrence of acute attacks. This can take the form of conventional Western medicine, homeopathic or naturopathic treatment. While many asthma attacks are relatively mild and can be treated and controlled at home, some are more severe and may even require hospitalization.

      Hi Terry – thank you for your comment! My youngest daughter also has suffered from asthma, hers was cough-variant. We were told that she would never ‘be like normal children”. But, through reflexology, herbs and essential oils, she not only was able to be ‘normal’, she also lettered in Track 3 straight years. She’s now a healthy 19-year-old college student :) We are blessed!
