Increasing person's immunity will enhance asthma or will cure asthma, pls explain.

Increasing person's immunity will enhance asthma or will cure asthma, pls explain.
Its very complicated mechanism actually and improving immunity can have benefit, if thought simply because at least the infections like viral or bacterial respiratory infections that flare up symptoms of asthma can reduce with a good immunity, but still there are multiple factors that can trigger asthma attack, so this phenomenon is not universal.

Can Ayurveda Boost Your Immunity?

BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
Can Ayurveda Boost Your Immunity?

The reason why you suffer from bad health every now and then is due to your poor immune system. Whenever there is a change in weather and you are attacked by the flu virus, stop blaming the weather because it is actually your weakened immune system that has let you down. Same goes for the particular food you eat or the way you heal from your wounds rather slowly.

So, if you really want to boost up your immunity system, then you can take a cue from the books of Ayurveda. Ayurveda not only believes in healing the body but makes sure that the root cause is weeded out so that you stay healthy for a longer duration of time.

Let us see how Ayurveda develops your immune system so that you can withstand all kinds of emotional, physical and most importantly, environmental challenges.

  1. The first thing Ayurveda says is to stick to healthy and nutritious foods. That doesn’t mean, you can’t cheat once in a week, but make sure that you have a protein rich and less carbohydrate diet. Make sure your food is warm; neither hot nor cold when you consume it.
  2. Cold foods and drinks are harmful to your body because they affect the digestive system. Say no to any kind of aerated drinks.
  3. Avoid foods, which are oily and especially difficult to digest.
  4. Take care of your muscles and skin by massaging daily with sesame or sunflower oil. They help in rebuilding the tissues of your body.
  5. While taking a bath, apply some essential oils such as lavender, rosemary, eucalyptus or juniper oil in a tub of warm water. This will make you feel fresh and uplift your mood.
  6. While cooking, add some spices to your food, especially turmeric, cumin, coriander or cinnamon. These will increase the food value.

There are some suggestions made by Ayurveda:

  1. Make sure you get an adequate of 6-8 hours of sleep. Avoid sleeping less or oversleeping.
  2. Exercise regularly; yoga, walking, free hand exercises which will increase blood circulations in your body.

Finally, avoid negative thinking. Make sure you are infused with a positive spirit, no matter what the situation is. Doing this, you will stay physically and mentally spirited.

Best Home Remedies for Seasonal Allergies
Our body has been built in such a way that it can protect itself from any harm causing entities which is possible through the immune system in our body. However this does not seem to stop people from facing allergies which happen when our immunity system in the body wrongs certain substances as threat to the body.

Allergies can be identified when there are rashes, hives or anaphylactic attacks on the body making it easy to treat them easily. There are various types of allergies that can be mainly caused due to certain airborne particles like dust, pollen, certain types of allergies can occur due to opposite reaction to some types of food items. Another type of allergy can be skin?s reaction towards certain types of fragrances or metals.

1. People who have allergy to respiratory might get:

? Sneezing
? Coughing
? Running nose or watery eyes
? Asthma

2. Food allergies result in :

? Flatulence
? Skin Rashes
? Eczema
? Diarrhea
? Throat swelling

3. Contact allergies give:

? Itching inflammation
? Burning sensation
? Blisters

Some of the natural treatments to allergies as suggested are:

1. Carrot juice, Beetroot juice and Cucumber juice:

Ingredients:

? Carrot juice ? 250 ml
? Beetroot juice ? 100 ml
? Cucumber juice ? 100 ml

Mix all the ingredients given above and drink it once daily in order to lessen the allergic reaction, additionally it is also said to soothen other existing allergies.

2. Lemon and Honey:

? ½ lemon
? 1 tsp honey

Hi i am shranik age 25 male.My palms start itching amd swell suddenly sometimes in cold climate or rain or when i pick up something cold.Is it some type of allergy or what?if so how did i get it and what is the permanent cure for it.I even have asthama from birth.

MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician, Mumbai
It seems to be allergic, especially since you also have asthma. If this occurs occasionally and is not too troublesome, just leave it alone. If it occurs more often, you could apply an antiallergic cream when you get such episodes, such as Halovate ointment.

Hi, I am feeling very allergic, chest tightness, breathlessness, unable to walk a small distance. My age is 45 years.

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. You are most probably having asthma. Asthma is a common allergic problem causing cough, breathlessness and wheeze. You will need to undergo a detailed evaluation with chest x ray and pulmonary function test which is needed for the diagnosis and also to assess the severity of asthma based on which treatment can be started. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

He is sufferings from asthma since 20 years.What can i do?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
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.

If no fever with cold and cough and associated with wheeze, then it is likely due to asthma. Avoid egg, feather, sudden change of weather and milk. Consult a child specialist for proper medication.

When steroid tablets are taken for many months or years, harmful side effects are likely and almost inevitable. The list of possible effects is long; it includes mood changes, forgetfulness, hair loss, easy bruising, a tendency toward high blood pressure and diabetes, thinning of the bones (osteoporosis), suppression of the adrenal glands, muscle weakness, weight gain, cataracts, and glaucoma. After being swallowed, these tablets are absorbed from the stomach into the bloodstream and taken not only to the bronchial tubes (to treat asthma) but also to every other part of the body. Their effects are widespread. On the other hand, only miniscule amounts of steroid medication enter the bloodstream after inhaling it. The reasons for this difference include the following. First, steroids used for inhalational treatment of asthma are designed not cross well from the surface of the bronchial tubes into the bloodstream. Somewhat like applying a steroid cream to the skin, they are poorly absorbed from the surface into the blood. Second, only very small amounts of steroid medication are delivered from the inhalers with each dose or" puff" less medicine is needed when it can be directly applied to the affected area. We measure the amounts of steroids inhaled in micrograms, which are units one thousand times smaller than the milligrams by which we measure prednisone or medrol tablets. When breathed in, some steroid medicine remains in the mouth and can be swallowed into the stomach and from there absorbed into the bloodstream. You can minimize any effect from steroids left behind in your mouth in two ways. First, use a spacer tube with your steroid spray. (a spacer can not be used with budesonide [pulmicort] dry powder inhaler.) medicine that would otherwise land on your tongue and mouth stays in the spacer chamber. The part of the spray that passes through the spacer also tends to pass through your mouth and proceed down onto the bronchial tubes. Second, rinse your mouth with water after inhaling the steroid spray. Rinsing removes any medicine residue from your mouth. The portion of the medicine that helps your asthma remains undisturbed on your bronchial tubes. So much for the theory; what about the actual experience with steroids in inhaled form? the current generation of steroid inhalers first began to be used in the mid 1960s. For more than three decades they have been prescribed for millions of people with asthma and other lung diseases worldwide. No serious long-term adverse effects have emerged. For adults, given in the usual doses, they do not cause degeneration (atrophy) of the normal tissues of the respiratory passageway. They do not predispose to lung infections. They do not cause cancer, diabetes, or high blood pressure. We need to look more carefully at the two phrases used above" for adults" and" in the usual doses" children's bones may be sensitive to the very small amounts of steroids that can enter the bloodstream after inhalation. There is currently debate? and considerable on-going research? to determine whether in children inhaled steroids might slow bone growth and reduce a child's ultimate height. Also, when given in very large doses (many puffs from a high-concentration steroid inhaler), the amount of steroid medicine that spills over into the bloodstream can become significant. Although the effect is small, like a very small dose of prednisone, over the years this small effect can potentially add up to serious harmful effects. High doses of inhaled steroids taken for a long time can probably predispose to cataracts, glaucoma, and thinning of the skin and bones. As a result, your doctor will probably only have you take high doses of inhaled steroids as a means to avoid steroid tablets. And he/she will constantly work with you to attempt to reduce the dose of inhaled steroids to a more conventional and safer range. Remember that not taking inhaled steroids for fear of side effects may have real consequences that are far worse than potential effects in the future; namely, asthma symptoms and risk of asthma attacks now. Severe asthma attacks are usually treated with steroid tablets, which all agree have the worst side effects.
