Furred animals like cats and dogs are important risk factor for uncontrolled asthma. preferably they should not be allowed in the house or at least in the bed rooms.

I am a 31 years old woman allergic to pollen dust, cobwebs and humidity. My medical check-up showed bronchial asthma. I have been suffering from the same for the last 23 years. I use asthalin inhaler daily i. E. Whenever I do household chores involving rigorous activity. In short, I am addicted to the inhaler. If the wheezing does not stop then I take a tablet. Since last 3-4 years I am taking Okacet and Betnesol Forte. Please tell me the substitute of both these tablets as I have heard Betnesol is kind of a steroid. I also feel very sleepy after taking this.

Hi lybrate-user, your bronchial asthma is triggered by allergy. I suggest, first and foremost you appropriately figure out and make a note of all the allergen (s) that possibly trigger your asthma. Dust, smoke, pollen, fungi, animal hair, insects, certain food items like wheat, egg, chocolates, flesh foods etc, cold/ hot air, humidity, stress, acidity etc all are common allergens that might precipitate bronchial asthma and the triggers vary from person to person. In your case, as I understand, it is dust, pollen, cobweb, physical stress and humidity. Do you have any other triggers apart from the above-mentioned? so, once you identify all the right trigger (s), try your level best to avoid the same. You need to continue the prophylactic medications as advised by your doc until he finds it ok to withdraw any of your medications. Additionally, please check with your pulmonologist if he would like to advise any preventive puffs as appropriate that you may use irrespective of breathing issues for a longer duration, and one that shall also help prevent any precipitation of asthmatic conditions. Apparently, you also need to have a emergency puff with you, that you can use sos, basis your doc's advise/ prescription. Also, make sure your diet/ nutrition, lifestyle including bowel habits etc all are streamlined. Learn to relax and keep your stress levels, both physical as well as mental, low. Its advisable to eat in moderation and less than your full capacity than eating to your full. Try avoiding tea, coffee, spices, chilies, pickles, extremely hot & cold/ chilled foods for they cause acidity and trigger asthma too in some people. Do consume citrus fruits/ vegetables rich in vitamin c as they help strengthen immunity. Warm saline gargling, at least once daily, shall help protect you from throat related afflictions/ allergies that often trigger asthma in certain people. Mostly, fresh air, dry climate, regular exercise go a long way in helping avert precipitation of an attack. Daily consumption of ginger-tulsi tea helps as well in these conditions, unless you have any specific reservations. Similarly, freshly ground turmeric (1/4 tsp) taken along with honey (1 tsp) and black pepper (1 - 2 nos) helps control allergies and inflammations systemically. You may take the same post dinner, in a glass of warm water, daily for about a week to 10 days first, and see for improvements, if any. Just ensure that you are keeping a gap of at least a hour between your allopathic medications and the safe home based herbal remedies as suggested above. Should you feel your condition worsens still, upon taking home made herbal remedies, just stop taking them. Inhaling the scent of honey during an asthma attack may also help breathe easier. On a daily basis, as well as during attacks, you can continue steam inhalations as advised. Learning well & practicing yogasanas/ postures and breathing techniques/ pranayams help streamline/ regulate breathing patterns, and increase the airflow to the lungs, increases its air capacity, exercises the respiratory muscles etc, thereby improving the lung function overall. It also helps de-stress and relax thereby facilitating breathe easily, and properly. It is advisable to learn the techniques/ asanas from a trained person who can advise rightly in line with your medical conditions/ requirements. Hope this helps. Take care and all the very best.

Have you got that problem before. It can be chronic congestion in lungs. Don't eat spicy, sour,bakery products. Sitopladi powder (25 gm)+ trikatu powder (10gm)+giloy Sat (10gm) mix all them and take 1/2 tsf with honey twice a day. If you don't get reliefs with that go for mantoux test pls then take appointment and take proper consultation.

I am 54 years old. From past 4-5 years I am getting dry cough. I got done all the tests and nothing positive. Suddenly I cough for few minutes and it will stop. But I feel exhausted after coughing so much.

Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. Your cough may be due to allergy. You will need to undergo pulmonary function test which is needed for the diagnosis and also to assess severity of asthma based on which treatment can be started. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. You will benefit from inhalers. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

The Connection between Lung Cancer and Outdoor Air Pollution

MBBS, MS- Surgery , M.Ch - Surgical Oncology , FIAGES
Oncologist, Delhi
The Connection between Lung Cancer and Outdoor Air Pollution

Lung cancer is the cancer killer of both men and women in the U.S. When you think of risk factors for lung cancer, what comes to mind? Most of us think about the risk associated with smoking cigarettes, but did you know that air pollution can also cause lung cancer? Overwhelming evidence shows that particle pollution in the outdoor air we breathe—like that coming from vehicle exhaust, coal-fired power plants and other industrial sources - can cause lung cancer. Particle pollution increases the risk of dying early, heart disease and asthma attacks, and it can also interfere with the growth and function of the lungs. 

What is Particle Pollution?

Particle pollution is a mix of tiny solid and liquid particles in the air and can be made up of a number of components, such as acids, organic chemicals, metals, soil and dust particles. It can be emitted directly from wood stoves, forest fires, vehicles and other sources, and it can also form from other types of pollution that come from sources like power plants. 

Why does particle pollution harm our bodies?

While breathing in larger sizes of particle pollution can be harmful to our health, smaller particles are more dangerous. Bigger particles can irritate your eyes, nose and throat, but our natural defenses help us to cough or sneeze them out of our bodies. Unfortunately, those defenses don't keep out smaller particles, which get trapped deep in the lungs and can even get into the bloodstream, causing damage to our health.

Who is most at risk?

As for who is at risk for health problems from breathing in particle pollution. Those who live where particle pollution levels are high is at risk. Some people face higher risk, including children, the elderly, people with lung and heart disease and diabetes, people with low incomes, and people who work or exercise outdoors.

How do we protect ourselves from particle pollution?

Check the air quality index forecast for the day and limit your activity if pollution levels are high. Avoid exercising along heavily traveled highways regardless of the overall forecast.

As individuals, we can play our part in reducing air pollution levels by trying to avoid creating more of it. Choosing ‘active travel’ options where possible, like walking and cycling, can help reduce pollution levels from transport and is also a great way to be more active, which is linked to a reduced risk of cancer and other diseases. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a oncologist and ask a free question.

I got COPD, my stamina has gone down completely. How can I get it back again? At the age of 63 is it advisable to run for building up of stamina?

Acupressurist, Chandigarh
Eat 1 to 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin coconut oil daily. You can add it to your smoothies. Apple cider vinegar is another good remedy to beat exhaustion. It helps alkalize the body to help you remain energetic. In addition, this health tonic is full of electrolytes, thus giving a boost to your stamina. Mix 1 tablespoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar and a little honey in a glass of water. Drink it twice daily. This bright yellow spice contains a compound called curcumin, which features many health benefits. Its powerful anti-inflammatory property helps diminish physical exhaustion to restore your energy level.
