Asthma Attacks – Can You Stop Or Prevent an Asthma Attack Without Using Drugs?

Although there are several known triggers of asthma, there is only one true cause. The cause is rarely discussed by the mainstream medical community. It was discovered by the leading respiratory doctors over the last century but for some reason the information behind this discovery is not being passed onto asthma sufferers.

The health systems across the world are not too concerned with alternative or home remedies for asthma or for any other affliction for that matter. They are complex systems with many social, economical and political implications. It’s big business! Governments and corporations do not make money from alternative or natural therapies.

It is now accepted amongst the leading respiratory doctors across the world that asthma is merely an imbalance of the respiratory system and not an incurable disease. Many people, especially children do outgrow or become cured of their asthma without realising how they did it. I can explain it!

Asthma is your body’s defence mechanism against involuntary hyperventilation. Once you understand why your body is manifesting asthma or asthmatic symptoms to be more precise, you will be able to prevent and reverse asthmatic symptoms.

An asthma attack is a state which can present itself as various symptoms including: wheezing, breathlessness, coughing, tightness in chest, blocked or runny nose and excessive mucus production.

There are many known triggers of an asthma attack which include, exercise, sleep, extreme weather conditions, laughing, dust, pets, allergens, pollution, smoking or drugs. However, they are simple that, TRIGGERS. They cannot possibly be the cause of asthma, otherwise they would trigger asthma in everybody, right?

Relieving or rescue asthma drugs are solely designed to mask the symptoms of asthma. They will open up your inflamed airways very quickly and provide you instant relief. By doing this, they are actually working against your body’s natural defence mechanism. Whilst they do provide you relief in the moment, they have various side effects and will only make your asthma worst in the long run by creating dependency on rescue drugs to re-open airways, which is something your body is very capable of doing itself.

Preventative drugs are designed to compensate your adrenal glands inability to produce adequate amounts of cortisol. They contain a synthetic version of the natural hormone cortisol called cortisone or corticosteroids. Once again these synthetic drugs have various side effects and with long-term use can affect your body’s ability to manufacture cortisol effectively making your asthma worst.
