Exercise Induced Asthma
Sports Induced Asthma
Exercise Induced Asthma or Sports Induced Asthma is asthma that is triggered by participating in sporting events or when you are exercising. is an inflammatory disease of the bronchial tubes and airway that obstructs and blocks the airway and makes breathing extremely difficult, particularly when you’re exercising and have an expanded need for oxygen.
It results in almost instant wheezing and the inability to catch your breath. It can be a severe condition requiring emergency medical attention if you don’t have any asthma drops or an inhaler handy. It can be successfully controlled and even reversed by natural methods (using specific herbs, homeopathic medicine and reprogramming your response to a histamine reaction.)
What Causes Asthma Attacks?
So What Causes Asthma Attacks? Asthma is usually caused by an allergen or a reaction to a stressful condition that causes your body to have a histamine response. This histamine response is like an immune system response that is trying to protect you from something toxic in your environment. It can be aggravated by participating in sports and exercise routines particularly when it’s smoggy outside or there are other particles in the air like smog, cigarette smoke, dust, pollen or pet dander (their dead skin cells).
Professional athletes have to prepare themselves for this and often take classes in meditation and breathing exercises for asthma to condition the airways and lungs to not react negatively to the need for more oxygen. Even Jackie Joyner-Kersee resorted to using an inhaler after she won a race. There are much better methods to deal with asthma prevention and treatment.
Exercise Induced Asthma Symptoms
Exercise Induced Asthma Symptoms. Having the symptoms of asthma during sports or exercise caused by histamines (things that cause your body to react negatively to substances and causes your body to have an immune response). This leads to your airways becoming inflamed and swollen, limiting the amount of air you can inhale into your lungs, just when you need it the most! If you panic you will make it even worse. The most common symptoms you might notice are:
- Wheezing while you’re running
- Tightness in the chest area
- Chronic cough or throat irritation
- Itching skin particularly around the throat area
- A sudden feeling of discomfort (an imminent attack)
The best way to prevent or stop an asthma attack is to train your body not to react to the histamine or substance creating the negative reaction in your body.Fortunately there are some exercises and techniques you can use to help prevent attacks from happening in the first place.
Natural Remedies for Asthma
Deep breathing and meditation can be a positive way to help you not react to the sensation of an attack and stop it before it even starts. It involves breathing deeply and focusing on calming your reaction to the allergen. You concentrate on specific points on the body to desensitize them from reacting negatively during your exercise or sporting event.
Learn how to meditate and maybe take a tai chi or yoga class because it trains you to have that mind body connection to allow greater control of your own body so when faced with a health issue you can calmly respond instead of instinctively react and continue what you want to do. I recommend taking some natural asthma control herbs or homeopathy drops for asthma until you can control this with only your mind-body connection – the long term goal.
Exercise Induced Asthma Treatment
Asthma is a serious condition that can fully block the airways if it gets really bad so it’s necessary to have an inhaler or fast acting asthma control formula with you or within a minutes reach from you. Always remember to have a Exercise Induced Asthma Treatment like the Homeopathic Respiratory Relief Kit (pictured above.)
homeopathy for asthma works really well on creating balanced breathing cycles so you inhale and exhale in the proper ratio and feel not panic or stress. It helps until you stop having asthma attacks for good. Swimming in particular irritates the airways and lungs and induces asthma attacks because of all the chemicals, particularly chlorine in the water. Swimming in the ocean is easier for asthmatics because it usually has less harmful chemicals (unless there is a natural or man made catastrophe that you will avoid for sure!)
Being free from asthma completely by learning to recognize the source of the histamine that is causing the attack and responding calmly will allow you to keep your airways open. Look at the Asthma and Allergy Relief guide (pictured above) for the long-term solutions to removing the source of you or your child’s asthma condition.
Choose holistic natural and herbal formulas because they are non-addictive and allow your body to heal naturally without adding other harmful chemicals. Prescription medications and inhalers are wonderful for emergencies but are very harmful in the long term because of the estrogenic hormones and additives.
Herbs for Asthma
There are some wonderful herbs for asthma attacks that you can take before, during or after your asthma bout to prevent or lessen the symptoms of asthma. Herbs for asthma have been used for centuries and that was the only natural treatment before chemical medicines were invented. Here are the best asthma herbs:
- Turmeric Curcumin (take as an extract)
- Oil of Oregano (potent natural bronchial relaxer)
- Honey (Grade B, unprocessed raw organic honey is best)
- Ginger (Either fresh or as Ginger Extract Capsules)
- Garlic (Either fresh or as Garlic Extract Deodorized Capsules)
- Figs (soak figs overnight in water then eat)
- Coffee (Organic Strong Coffee is best)
Begin Your healing process and slowly get yourself off the standard medications and into a healthy state that no longer requires steroid inhalers or medications. You don’t need anything to slow you down anymore.
