As you knows that this disease is life time but some products that supports you to live life happily. I am advising you take swasni avalah 1 spoon in morning after breakfast end 1 spoon after dinner end take water after 30 minutes for lifetime (free advice to you) after 6 to 12 month you will fill energy in you. After 5 years you may not have this problem. Do pranayam, walking slowly 2 km in morning end 2 km after dinner or as you are able to walk. Inhaler do not stop automatically reduce if you fill normal interwell increases automatically.

Sir. I am suffering with cough. I think that it. Is dust allergy. What is the solution sir.

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. You might be having allergic bronchitis so you will need to undergo a detailed examination and pulmonary function test which is needed for diagnosis and also to assess severity of bronchitis based on which treatment can be started. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Thanks.

General Physician,
ASTHMA

Asthma has become a common ailment these days because of rampant air pollution and stressful lifestyle. The quality of the air we breathe, the change in climate and dust allergy can easily bring in an asthmatic flare up in some people.
Asthma attack causes breathing difficulty. This happens as your bronchial tubes get inflamed and contract, thereby narrowing down the air passages. You feel your chest tightening up and experience shortness of breath with a wheezing sound.

What triggers asthma flare ups?
There a number of potential triggers for mild to severe asthmatic attacks. By identifying and avoiding these triggering factors you can bring down the frequency of your asthmatic flare ups notably.
Look out for the following factors that may set off asthma:

Cold and flu:
Cold and flu infection spreads through coughing and sneezing from an infected person. A cold takes 2-4 days while flu takes 3-4 weeks to recover. These infections can potentially trigger the asthma attack by causing inflammation of the air passages.

Weather change:
The changing weather conditions, cold air, humid climate and thunderstorms often trigger asthma flare ups. Changes in temperature also aggravates asthma problem. Cold air is one of the most common reasons for asthma attacks in kids and adults alike.
Allergens:
Dust Mites:
Dust mites in your carpets, rugs, pillows and bedding may trigger asthma as well. It is very difficult to kill dust mites. Make sure you use vacuum cleaner to clear away dust from your beddings, carpets, pillows etc. And put them out in the sun often.

Molds:
If you have indoor plants then they may trigger asthma attack due to allergy flare ups. This happens as they tend to form molds that may trigger asthma.

Pollens:
Indoor plants and garden areas may be a good thriving ground for pollens. Pollens are very fine particles. Insects and gusts of air may transport these allergens to your body through breath.

Pet/animal dander and cockroaches:
Pets or animals with hair or fur like a dog, cat, bird or even mice may shed miniscule skin flecks that may cause irritation and trigger an asthmatic flare up.
If you have cockroaches at home, then get pest control done. Their droppings may also trigger asthma flare up and you would have never guessed the real reason!

Work environment:
If your office area is closed up and not well ventilated, has wood dust or smell of wood polish, wall paint fumes, chemicals etc. Then your asthma flare up can set off easily.

Cigarette smoke:
If you smoke or you are in a smoking zone like in a restaurant or a party, then the smoke can prompt an asthma flare up. Even smoke from a bushfire may trigger it.

Air pollution:
If you live, work or travel in an area where air pollution is high due to traffic or lack of greenery, then an asthma flare up can occur frequently.

Strong smells:
Strong smells from flowers, mosquito repellents, incense sticks, varnish, paint, perfumed candles, deodorants or body perfumes can also trigger asthma.

Medication:
Certain medicines can also trigger asthma attack like blood pressure or steroidal medicines etc. Always ask your doctor before taking medicines.

Stress and emotional highs:
If you have not taken a vacation in a long time, you are working late nights or have to do heavy physical or mental work, then it results in extreme stress. It may trigger an asthmatic flare up. Emotional highs like anger or excitement can also trigger a flare up of asthma.

Exercise:
Exercising, jogging, swimming or running can also trigger asthmatic attack due to physical exertion. This happens because when you run or work out, then breathing becomes faster. This lets a lot of cold air enter your lungs in comparison to normal breath that is made warm by your nose.

Hormonal imbalance:
Anytime you are experiencing hormonal ups and downs, asthma flare up can get triggered. For women menstrual cycle, pregnancy or menopause can trigger asthma in some cases. This is not very common though.

Foods:
Kapha aggravating foods can also trigger an asthmatic attack. Avoid rice, curd, high salt, sugar, lentils, strong tea, alcohol, pickles, sauces, processed foods to lower the risk of asthma flare up. Processed foods contain preservatives like sulphite foods that may trigger asthma.
Find out the reasons that cause your asthma flare up. Keep yourself active despite asthma by avoiding these triggering factors.

So, rabies virus can survive for a while outside the body. People who are at higher than normal risk of being exposed to potentially rabies-contaminated surfaces should be vaccinated against rabies. At 30C (86F), the virus don’t last long, being inactivated within 1.5h with exposure to sunlight and 20h without sunlight.

To name a few - Elderberry, Button Mushrooms, Acai Berry, Oysters, Watermelon, Cabbage, Almonds, Grapefruit (not the grapes), Grapes, Wheat Germ, Low-Fat Yogurt, Garlic, Spinach, Tea (green or black), Broccoli, Sweet Potato and carrots. Beside this a lot many which to lesser or greater extents helps to boost our energy and immune system.

You have to avoid the triggers that bring on asthma like dust, cold and whatever in your case. You have to take long acting drugs like salmeterol in inhalation form. Do not go near smokers or smoke.

Asthma ho jane k baad kya krna chaiye & uske side effect kya h.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
TRY THE TIPS BELOW:: Pulses like old rice (rice which is stored for at least one year is called old), wheat, barley, kulattha, mung beans, arhar beans, etc . should be consumed. Honey, warm drinks like herbal teas, spice teas are also okay. Sprouts, nuts and seeds can be taken in moderate amount. The heavy foods and those which make ama should be avoided. This mainly includes milk products like cheese, curd, butter milk, creams, and banana, etc. Oily, greasy and fried foods which are difficult to digest should be avoided. White flour and white sugar products should be avoided. In addition, try to avoid the cold foods, cold drinks and other refrigerated things. Avoid excessive or physically demanding exercise. Yoga and Pranayama can be helpful. Take 11 guava leaves, 11 black pepper, 1 cup milk and one cup water. Put all of them in pot and boil it well, when it reduced to one cup, drink in empty stomach. Take this daily for at least six months or a year. Boil cumin seeds in water and inhale the steam. It helps dilate the bronchial passage. Take 5 gm of ginger, black pepper, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, turmeric and 30 gm of sugar. Grind the mix to a powder. Take half to one teaspoonful and mix it nicely with honey. Take it twice a day

Chest pain which is on exertion, relieved by rest, can be due to a heart cause. Better consult a cardiologist. Decrease food intake during dinner and keep a gap of 2 hours between sleep and dinner.

I have Asthma/COPD and would like to know if consuming milk/yogurt/milk products will increase phlem in my lungs. Can you please also suggest some home remedies for asthma/copd.

What is your age, smoking status, complaints.Is it asthma or COPD. Both are different problems with different solutions. Moreover there is no specific food restriction for asthma/ allergy. Every individual will have different allergies.So take fresh milk/ yogurt. If you are properly diagnosed with asthma/ COPD take proper inhalers( Controllers LIke formeterol/budesonide or solmeterol/fluticosone) and keep some relievers like salbutomol with or without ipratropium for emergency purpose.
