Asthma is a condition that affects the lungs and can be deadly if not treated or maintained. I have a mild case of this ailment. My food and pollen allergies usually trigger it. However, in the winter months and when my chronic symptoms flares are when I have the most attacks. The cold air makes it harder to breathe which is why I cannot do much activity outside. When I need to go out, I can usually manage as long as I take my inhaler before I leave. Despite this, I still have symptoms, and my chest feels tight. I am now looking into a more natural asthma relief.
Earlier this week, was one of those days. The doctor’s office is close to my home. When I missed the bus, and I did not feel like waiting in the cold, I walked. I took my Ventolin before I left the house, but my chest still felt tight as I walked. My pace was slow. Focusing on my breathing to make sure I took deep breaths through my nose rather than my mouth helped very much. As I walked is when I thought of ideas to manage my asthma naturally and everything else.
Medication and Naturals
As I stated before, I have prescription “Ventolin” to manage my emergency symptoms. I can also take it before exercising that I know would cause an attack. I also found that over the counter external medication such as a chest rub such as “Vick’s Vapor Rub” or some other generic brand helps to ease the symptoms. Colds and allergies, I found trigger my asthma.
The best way I keep myself healthy is mixing teas depending on needs. I either create my loose tea with herbs and tea leaves from packets or put in a few different tea bags in one cup. It may sound counter-intuitive to mix tea bags, but it can make a strong tea that helps to get rid of the things that ail you. Natural asthma relief is important so that if you can better manage your symptoms.
