Asthma is a disorder of respiratory system from multifactorial causes.

Some common etiological factors that triggers asthma are given below

Allergens - Our body is exposing numerous allergic substances which are otherwise known as allergens or antigens. Those allergens or antigens when get inside our body starts developing allergic reaction that leads to constriction of respiratory tubes and results asthma. In India average 30 to 40 million people are suffering from asthma. The allergy and asthma is a common health problem now a day not only in urban areas but spreading to rural areas too. In our daily life we are exposing lots of allergens either from the air or from foods or from medicines etc. the air allergens like pollens, dust mites, pet dander, molds etc. those are creating allergic reaction in those people whose immune system is hypersensitive to those allergens. Similarly many proteins found in various food stuff also create allergic reaction in some individual like nut allergy, egg allergy, milk allergy, crab allergy, wheat allergy etc. Those foods contain some specific proteins which are allergic triggers for some individual.

Respiratory infection Respiratory infection like flu sometimes convert to bronchial asthma in some hypersensitive individual. Taking of cold drinks or ice-cream in cold weather sometimes triggers asthmatic complains in some individual whose body are hyper susceptible to allergy. Similarly in many corporate sectors the employees who are working 10 to 12 hours in air condition room may develop asthma generally due to temperature variation inside and outside office.

Changes of weather the allergic prone individual get the asthmatic attack in change of weather. When the summer season change to rainy season they develops asthma, similarly in winter season they get frequently attack of asthma. Some people are so sensitive even change of climate can triggers asthmatic problem to them.

Place change The climacteric condition also put a lot of impact in asthmatic patient. The climacteric condition is not same in all states or countries. Some peoples are more prone to allergy and asthmatic condition in more humidity climate than dry climate. When they change the place their asthmatic problem reduces a lot. similarly the peoples who are staying city areas more prone to asthmatic condition than village area because of more exposure to pollution , chemicals, smokes in urban areas than village areas.

Occupational asthma- occupational asthma is now the most common job-related respiratory disease in developed countries. It is caused by inhaling fumes, gases, dusts or other harmful substances while in the job. Exposure to various harmful gases like sulphur dioxide, ammonia, hydrochloric acid which is generally found in petroleum or chemical industries causes asthma. The workers of paint industry, plastic industry exposes to various chemicals in airs that triggers asthmatic condition in them. Peoples who are working in stone cutting also get asthmatic problem.

Emotional factors not only the physical or atmospheric factors are responsible for asthma but the emotional factors also plays role in creating asthmatic condition in many individuals. Suppression of anger, emotion, and excitement can be the cause of asthma. Any suppression of emotion put impact on the immune endocrine axis that result asthmatic condition. Sometimes more crying or laughter develops short term asthmatic condition

Suppression of skin diseases - suppression of skin diseases like eczema, allergic dermatitis by any external application may suppress the skin condition but in later part of life it explore out in form of allergy or asthma symptoms.

Hormonal changes, GERD hormonal changes during menstrual cycle sometimes initiates temporarily asthmatic condition. The reflux disorders occasionally develop asthmatic condition.

Homeopathy treatment for asthma There are good homeopathy medicines which can treat the asthma successfully. Homeopathy medicines offer a long lasting cure to the asthmatic condition because it targets the cause of the problem. For example if the person is hypersensitive to any allergens it helps to modify or rectify the hypersensitivity of the immune system of the asthmatic prone person so that whatever he exposes does not get allergic reaction. But to treat the asthma homeopathically requires taking a detail case history of the patient. The case history does not means the collection of symptoms only of the asthmatic symptoms but all the symptoms of his physical, mental, emotional, temperament , social behaviors, family history, past history that altogether gives an impression of the person s individuality and the medicines are selected according to that symptoms. It is called constitutional homeopathic treatment.

Besides that the acute symptoms of asthma like shortness of breath, wheezing sound, chest congestion, and cough are also needed to control as quick as possible to give a relief to the patient.

Lifestyle Changes Can Help Control Asthma!

Lifestyle Changes Can Help Control Asthma!
Asthma is an inflammatory disease, which affects the airways of your lungs (respiratory tract that pumps oxygen into the lungs). It is long term in nature. It is characterized by shortness of breath, coughing and wheezing. It occurs few times a day or few times a week depending on the person it affects. Sometimes it worsens during the night.

What triggers Asthma?

Airborne particles such as dust mites, mold spores, pollen and cockroach waste.
Infections in the respiratory system such as common cold.
Cold air can also trigger asthma.
Physical or outdoor activities which make you pant such as running, skipping, jogging and jumping can cause shortness of breath, thus triggering asthma.
Pollutants and irritants in air such as smoke.
Some medications can also trigger asthma.
Stress and nervous attacks (panic attacks) also trigger asthma.
How to manage asthma better by changing your lifestyle:

Try to avoid keeping animals in your house such as dogs, cats and rabbits. Many times animal fur, waste, urine and saliva contains particles which can cause allergic reactions and make you cough uncontrollably. This in turn triggers asthma attacks. If you have pets try keeping them away from your bedroom.
Dust mites also cause allergies which trigger asthma. So wash your carpets, rugs, bed-linen and pillowcases in hot water.
Bugs and insects such as cockroaches are not only unhygienic, but can also trigger asthma. Cockroach droppings near your bed, kitchen and food are dangerous and you should call an exterminator to get rid of these bugs.
Sometimes, heavy fragrance also aggravates your respiratory tract and triggers shortness of breath. Avoid using heavy perfumes, deodorants and room fresheners.
Pollution also triggers asthma. Dust particles come out from the vehicles and mix with the air. If this air is inhaled, it might trigger uncontrollable asthma. So try to cover your mouth with a cloth when you step out of your house.
Asthma can be very severe and can bring many hurdles in your day to day activities. Changing your lifestyle and certain habits can reduce asthma to a great extent.
