do you have family history of asthama? the right medications for you depend on a number of things, including your age, your symptoms, your breathing triggers and what seems to work best to keep your breathlessness under control. Preventive, long-term control medications reduce the inflammation in your airways that leads to symptoms. Quick-relief inhalers (bronchodilators) quickly open swollen airways that are limiting breathing. In some cases, allergy medications are necessary. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

You should talk to your employers about this situation and they are compelled to provide a safe work environment for you. If it is a private organization, you should be careful because not many of them care and your job may be at risk. Even so it is possible to provide an atmosphere of clear and clean air for your work environment, if you requested. But worse than all that is your smoking habit and your employers may become indignant if you continue to sabotage your health with this bad habit while demanding clean environs from the organization! This is a dangerous combination. Smoking directly attacks the respiratory apparatus and your asthma is a respiratory illness. You can ill-afford to continue smoking unless you want to kill yourself early and in a most miserable way! You must seriously take a call and quit smoking now. Here?s how you can go about it: The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. Tobacco tar smears the lung surface and causes big patches over time to become dysfunctional. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Your advice on myths about Asthma is superb. But we have in mind that inhalers with steroids if used for long time will reduce the elasticity of the lungs. It is is addictive and acts on the psychology of the patient. Is it advisable to continue inhalers even if symptoms are not there. Is Asthma curable. Even after a long remission period is there chances of relapse if the inhaler is discontinued. Please clarify.

Hello! It is advisable that you give the patient cinnamon powder. Soak 1 tsp cinnamon powder overnight in a glass of water and consume it in the morning. Empty stomach but after getting fresh. Cinnamon powder is the most effective natural as well as easy to do remedy for your asthma patient and any problem related to it. For her headache problem -Firstly get her eyesight checked up as soon as possible. Make sure you have her head is in the south or east direction while sleeping… The most effective remedy for these kind of problems is" cow ghee" take 1 spoon of cow ghee and warm it, With the help of a dropper, Pour one drop of cow ghee in each of your nostril. It Makes your head nerves lighter and healthier that too without any side effects. Furthermore it is advisable that you keep her stress free by practicing breathing exercise (pranayam) everyday, It is beneficial for both her asthma and headache as well as cold problems. Lastly make sure she takes at least 8 hours of sleep. Asthma and other such problems related to it can also be cured through simple diet and exercise regimes. Remember that prevention is always better than cure. Thanks.

The treatment available for asthma are inhalers containing medicines which you are already using. If you can identity the triggers of your asthma, then trigger avoidance can further help in preventing the attacks.
