What is asthma?
Asthma is a condition where the airways in the lungs narrow due to inflammation and swelling of the airway lining. This leads to tightening of the airway muscles and production of excess mucous, which can cause breathing difficulties.
Common symptoms of asthma include:
- tightness of the chest
- a chronic cough
- shortness of breath
What causes asthma?
The causes of asthma varies from person to person, however various foods and environmental substances may trigger the condition. These triggers are usually detected when the reaction occurs (e.g. upon exposure to grass). However, in some cases food triggers can be hard to pin-point as reactions to foods may be delayed or may only occur when a person is exposed to an amount higher than the amount they're able to tolerate.
Many people who present with asthma have a family history of the condition. It may also go hand in hand with other allergy-related conditions such as hay fever an eczema, which can often appear at the same time, or in succession of one another.
Allergies and asthma
Common substances that may trigger asthma generally fall into two categories:
1. Airborne and seasonal allergens:
2. Food and food chemicals:
- Salicylates (natural chemical in many fruits & vegetables)
- Sulphites (preservatives commonly found in alcohol, juice/cordial, dried fruit and processed meats)
Natural asthma treatment
At Health & Wellness Australia, use a technique called muscle testing (or kinesiology) to help identify your food and environmental triggers. Following testing, you can work with your practitioner to address your sensitivities using a natural allergy treatment called Positive Association Technique (PAT).
PAT is a non-invasive holistic therapy, which:
- draws on acupressure and kinesiology techniques
- aims to re-train your body
- may reduce your reactions to substances that may be causing or exacerbating your asthma symptoms, including airborne, seasonal and food-based
Some asthma cases can be complex, so our Naturopaths may also recommend supplements, herbs and lifestyle advice to help you achieve the best long-term results.
PAT cannot cure allergies - it is intended to decrease your reactions and help manage asthma-related symptoms.
