Let us discuss Asthma

  1. Asthma is a common condition that affects the airways and causes episodes of breathing difficulty.
  2. Asthma affects around 5% of the global population, and it is becoming more common worldwide.
  3. It generally begins in childhood but also affects adults. But it seems that both genetics and the surrounding environment are involved in developing this trouble.
  4. Asthma affects your airways, the small pipe which transports air in and out of the lungs. Asthma occurs when the airways are more sensitive to specific triggers, so that from time to time, they become narrow, inflamed and swollen, and stickier mucous is produced.
  5. All of these changes reduce the flow of air, which leads to some or all of the following symptoms: coughing, breathlessness, tightness across the chest, and wheezing.
  6. A sudden worsening of symptoms is called an ‘asthma attack’. And this can even be fatal if not promptly treated.

Symptoms of Asthma

  1. Airway blockage – When you have asthma, the muscle around your airways becomes stiff and creates a bottleneck in the airway.
  2. Inflammation – Asthma causes red, swollen bronchial inflammation in your lungs. This aggravation can harm your lungs.
  3. Airway irritability – Individuals with Asthma have sensitive airway routes that will in general overreact and tight when they come into contact even with little triggers.
These issues may cause, for example,
  1. Coughing, particularly around evening time or night
  2. Wheezing, a whistling sound during your breathing
  3. Shortness of breath
  4. Pain, pressure and tightness in your chest
  5. Due to breathing issues trouble in sleeping

Followings are the symptom-based treatment for asthma:

  1. Adrenaline for congestion
  2. Bromium for spasmodic cough
  3. Eriodictyon californicum for asthmatic wheezing
  4. Aconitum napellus for shortness of breath
  5. Eucalyptus globulus for mucus congestion
  6. Trifolium pratense for irritation
  7. Phosphorus for chest spasms
  8. Aralia acemose for tightness in the chest.

Reason for development of Asthma


Asthma can develop at any stage of your life. However, more than half of the population having asthma have had their first symptoms by the age of 10. At the same time, children with asthma develop their first symptom at the age of 6 years.


Asthma is more severe if it starts at an older age. If the older person has heart disease or other medical complications, then asthma can make it worse.


Yes, infections like viral respiratory infections like cold, flu can stimulate asthma symptoms mainly in children and older people.


At the point when asthma is not under control, the air routes become swollen. Irritation of the aviation routes causes the symptoms of asthma (breathlessness, wheezing, chest coughing and snugness) by confining or restricting the airflow to and from the lungs. 

The air routes become red and swollen, which makes them thinner. This problem can frequently take a few hours or days to occur and may take the same duration to switch after the asthma attack has passed.

Along with this tightening of muscles can occur rapidly, based on the seriousness of symptoms and inflammation.


Yes, unfortunately. In severe cases, a person can die from an asthma attack. But proper treatment and a healthy lifestyle can eradicate that.
