How to Manage Asthma Naturally!
Asthma is a chronic inflammation of the lungs small pockets called alveoli, where oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged in breathing. An asthma attack occurs when lung tissue is inflamed to such a degree that cannot get enough oxygen in the blood stream, while carbon dioxide can not be expelled.

Asthma treatment with traditional medicines is useful, but lately we see reports of increased heart disease that these drugs pose. In addition, a recently published report in the journal Pediatrics reviewed recent studies on Tylenol and found that the drug can exacerbate asthma in children and adults who already have the disease, and even cause new cases.

A Natural Approach

Natural medicine can significantly strengthen immune function, which in turn can help prevent asthma attacks. If you are looking for ways to manage asthma naturally, here are some tips:

  1.  Exercise: Physical activity increases lung capacity and strengthens the muscles you need to breathe.
  2.  Acupuncture: There is evidence that acupuncture controls some inflammation in body tissues when allergic reactions.
