Following foods may help minimize your asthma symptoms:--------------------- 1. Coffee. Have a cup of java, but go for the caffeinated variety--- studies suggest that caffeine can help open bronchial tubes for up to 4 hours, which is good because they become constricted when you have asthma. ----------------------- 2. Oranges--a study found that people with asthma wheezed less when they ate vitamin c-rich fruits, such as oranges. Not only does vitamin c (ascorbic acid) have anti-inflammatory properties, it also may boost your overall health. -------------- 3. Nuts. The vitamin e in nuts may help open your airways and reduce inflammation. Research has found that vitamin e has antioxidant properties, which help combat cell-damaging molecules known as free radicals.------------------ 4. Carrots. Carrots as well as other red, orange, and yellow fruits and veggies, contains beta carotene, which may decrease the asthma symptoms exercise causes. Your body converts beta carotene to vitamin a, which is an essential nutrient. Beta carotene also has antioxidant properties that can help ward off cell damage----------------------------- 5. Onions. Onions are loaded with tiny crystals known as flavonoids, which help fight inflammation from asthma by strengthening your capillary walls. They also can protect the lining of your lungs and bronchial tubes from damage caused by pollution. In addition to onions, apples, blueberries, and prickly pears -- all of which provide tasty ways to add flavonoids to your asthma diet------------------------ 6. Tuna. You want tuna in your diet because it contains omega-3 fatty acids and selenium. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown in some studies to reduce inflammation. Studies also show that people with asthma may lack selenium, and that adding more to their diets may help ward off asthma attacks------------------------------------- 7. Yogurt. Look specifically for yogurt that contains probiotics -- beneficial bacteria that has been shown to reduce inflammation. Non proven evidencesuggests that probiotics seem to reduce allergic reactions, and, for some people, asthma is triggered by allergies----------------- 8. Leafy greens. Spinach and other leafy greens are a good source of magnesium and folate. Research indicates people with asthma may be low in magnesium. Likewise, an increasing amount of evidence shows that adequate folate can suppress allergic reactions and may lessen the severity. 9. Apples. Full of vitamins and phytochemicals that may improve your overall lung capacity. In a study, people who ate at least five apples a week had better lung function than those who ate this fruit less frequently. However one must eat the the peel, too. That's where most of the health-helping flavonoids, such as quercetin, catechin, epicatechin, and procyanidins, reside. Dietary changes and asthma. While you're eating better, remember to avoid any foods or ingredients known to trigger your asthma. For example, some people find that the sulfites in dried fruit sets theirs off. Also, if you're getting nutrients from supplements, talk to your doctor because some may interfere with your asthma medications.

COPD: Causes and Symptoms

Multi Speciality Clinic
Multi Speciality, Gurgaon
COPD: Causes and Symptoms

COPD, short for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, is an inflammatory disease of the lungs. The disease obstructs the flow of air in the lungs and subsequently causes difficulty in breathing. Prolonged exposure to cigarette smoke, gases or particulate matter can lead to this condition. The condition transcends all age brackets meaning it can affect anyone from young teenagers to aged adults. People who contract this disease are at an increased likelihood of developing cardiovascular conditions and lung diseases, in addition to a horde of other conditions.

Causes of COPD
1. The chief cause of COPD is smoking tobacco and being subjected to fumes from cooking and heating. A study estimated that in and around 25% of long-standing smokers develop symptoms of this condition. Yet, statistics show that COPD is often misdiagnosed until an elaborate evaluation is diagnosed.
2. Conditions like Emphysema and chronic bronchitis are also known to cause the disease. Your lungs depend on the intrinsic elasticity of the air sacs and bronchial tubes that help facilitate the passage of air through the lungs. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease causes these passages to lose their elasticity thus rendering them partially ineffective.

Symptoms of COPD 
The symptoms of COPD do not appear until the lungs are significantly damaged and the condition tends to deteriorate if smoking persists. Apart from coughing and production of sputum, other apparent symptoms include:

  1. Difficulty in breathing
  2. Stiffness and tightness of chest
  3. A persistent cough
  4. Fatigue and weakness
  5. Weight loss
  6. Frequent allergic reactions of the respiratory glands

Along with the aforementioned symptoms, patients who are diagnosed with COPD are likely to experience bouts of exacerbation, during which their symptoms heighten and tend to grow worse for several days.
Although anyone can contract the condition, certain people are at an increased risk of condition. Such risk factors include:

  • Chronic smoking
  • A medical history of asthma
  • Exposure to chemicals and dusts
  • Weakening of the immune system with increasing age
  • Heredity

If you experience or entertain symptoms or suspicions of this disease, consulting a pulmonologist is duly advised.

Are there screening tests that can find lung cancer early? How many people get lung cancer?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, early diagnosis of lung cancer can be made by screening chest xray, but it shouldn't be done very frequently as there is risk of radiation exposure so annually once is fine unless there is some problems like cough, blood in sputum, voice change, breathing difficulty etc. Lung cancer is the most common cancers relatrd deaths amongst males and the incidence is amongst males in nearly 7percent of all cancers.

I have severe sinus issues and in winters I get breathing issues. I did CT scan and PNS for that on which the doctors told me to go for operation. Is there any other remedy for that? Will the operation be able to cure sinus completely?

BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Hi lybrate-user, Soft growths arising from mucous membrane of nose or paranasal sinus are referred as nasal polyps. They are painless and non cancerous growths. There is no specific cause leading to nasal polyps. However, certain factors including nasal allergies, nasal infections and chronic nasal catarrh are linked with formation of nasal polyps. Nasal polyps lead to symptoms of stuffy nose, post nasal drip, sneezing, runny nose, loss of smell and headaches Also if this is a seasonal allergy and sinus issue, you can go for Homeopathy. The most common treatment option suggested by conventional system in nasal polyps is surgical removal; But surgery offers a  temporary relief  in many cases. This is so because surgery is just excising the polyps and not taking care of the body’s tendency to form polyps. In most cases, Nasal polyps reappear after surgery. Homeopathy offers effective, natural and alternative treatment for nasal polyps. Homeopathic medicines promise a permanent cure in nasal polyps by treating the root cause.  Homeopathic medicines cure nasal polyps in a safe and gentle manner.

How a smoker can keep his lungs in a good condition without hampering smoking for at least of minimum of five cigarettes in a whole day?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
That idea is a pipe dream. Even one cigarette a day is harmful because tobacco smoke contains at least 4000 chemical substances. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. Over a period of time lung patches form and those areas become defunct and will hamper oxygen absorption and you will feel loss of stamina and breathlessness. Things like how much you inhale, how long you retain the smoke and how many cigarettes you smoke will impact the effects of the substance. Ideally you should quit all smoking and live a healthy life, period.

Inhale treatment is gold standard for asthma. So never stop any treatment without consulting doctor. It's mostly chronic and prolonged treatment for years.
