Asthma inflammation can cause you much discomfort and distress. That is putting it mildly says someone with this condition or if one of your loved ones has it. Right!
Lets first see what the wonderful world of breathing is all about.
We breath in air which goes down into our windpipes (trachea) then the air we take in goes on into the bronchi, the tube leading into each lung then the air goes on into the many different branches of our lungs, and then into what is called the alveoli.
Why is this process so important?
Certainly this is the way our body gets oxygen into the lungs but the lungs do a great deal more than that. In the alveoli this is where oxygen is put into our blood stream, (our blood stream feeds oxygen to all of our organs) then carbon dioxide is then extracted from our blood stream so we can exhale it. Taking in more oxygen again. This then is the wonderful story of breath that happens to us over and over again.
When a person has asthma though that story changes from a very easy breath to one that can be life threatening.
Thousands of people every year are afflicted with asthma. More and more every year.

What is Asthma?
The definition of asthma is chronic inflammation of the airways of the lungs.
There are many ways to know whether you have asthma. Coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath are all symptoms. This affliction often causes airway blockage, and airway hyperresponsiveness.
The major thing about inflammation is that it can be acute or chronic. Most times, acute cases often don’t last more than a few weeks, some occurrences have lasted months. Chronic inflammation on the other hand is something that does need our attention because of its constricting of airways in those with asthma.
When a person with asthma inflammation coughs this is due to the airway restriction, but not just the airways are blocked, the bronchial tubes also get clogged up with mucus and cannot open. This can sometimes also cause ear infections.
In some cases of asthma inflammation, patients report that they don’t have bronchial swelling or plugging from the mucus. This is because, for some reason, the tubes do not get plugged but still have inflammation which causes the tube to twitch.
Twitching can be from an allergic reaction to over stimulus from cat dander, dust, exercise, or cold air. If these problems are present because of the ventilation we have in a home or trailer, we can also reduce this by changing filters more often or changing the systems we have to produce forced air into our homes.
Allergy testing will help identify ways to reduce asthma inflammation. Once identified, we can remove them from our homes or surrounding areas.
Things like cigarette smoke, dander and dust can be removed easily from your home.
If you are like my husband and work in the construction industry make sure to cover you mouth and nose with a proper mask.
We have a friend that works doing brick work and when he inhaled some of the cement when he was cutting bricks with the saw, some of these fibers lodged near his vocal cords and caused a cyst to grow there. Make sure to protect yourself as much as possible to prevent this from happening to you.
The Natural way to help Asthma inflammation.
Knowing how our body works is the first step. My Mother would never let us kids slouch over. Stand and sit tall she would say. While this was more etiquette, the polite thing to do it has merit.
Our Posture helps us take in air, in a more natural way. Deep breathing helps the muscles in the chest work better. These muscles are the diaphragm our abdominal and intercostal muscles, these run between the ribs.
When a person has asthma it is important to exercise to strengthen your heart and lungs and surrounding area muscles.
The blood test called C-reactive protein also will tell you if there is inflammation in your body. It takes special testing to tell you where it is in the body or if you have asthma inflammation, but with this test you will at least know if there is an inflammatory state existing in the whole of your body.
Then you can eat anti inflammatory foods and juices (made from your own juicer) that will help to keep chronic body inflammation under control.
