Asthma is a chronic disease involving the airways
in the lungs. These airways, or bronchial tubes,
allow air to come in and out of the lungs.
If you have asthma your airways are always
inflamed.


They become even more swollen and
the muscles around the airways can tighten
when something triggers your symptoms. This
makes it difficult for air to move in and out of
the lungs, causing symptoms such as coughing,
wheezing, shortness of breath and/or chest
tightness.



For many asthma sufferers, timing of these
symptoms is closely related to physical activity.
And, some otherwise healthy people can develop asthma symptoms only when exercising. This is called exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB), or exercise-induced asthma (EIA). Staying active is an important way to stay healthy, so asthma
shouldn't keep you on the sidelines.



Your physician can develop a management plan to keep your symptoms under control before,
during and after physical activity.


People with a family history of allergies or
asthma are more prone to developing asthma.
Many people with asthma also have allergies.
This is called allergic asthma.

Occupational asthma is caused by inhaling
fumes, gases, dust or other potentially harmful
substances while on the job.


Childhood asthma impacts millions of children and their families. In fact, the majority of
children who develop asthma do so before the age of five.


There is no cure for asthma, but once it is
properly diagnosed and a treatment plan is in
place you will be able to manage your condition,
and your quality of life will improve.


An allergist / immunologist is the best
qualified physician in diagnosing and treating
asthma. With the help of your allergist, you can
take control of your condition and participate in
in normal activities.


asthma Diagnosis
An allergist diagnoses asthma by taking a
thorough medical history and performing
breathing tests to measure how well your lungs
work.

ASTHMA SYMPTOMS
The most common symptom is wheezing. This
is a scratchy or whistling sound when you
breathe. Other symptoms include:
• Shortness of breath
• Chest tightness or pain
• Chronic coughing
• Trouble sleeping due to coughing or
wheezing.

Asthma symptoms may be worse during
exercise, when you have a cold or during times
of high stress.

Children with asthma may show the same
symptoms as adults with asthma: coughing,
wheezing and shortness of breath. In some
children chronic cough may be the only
symptom.

I know a great clinic - Swiss Medica, where they treat Asthma and many other diseases with stem cells. Even in severe asthma, stem cell therapy promotes lung tissue regeneration, which leads to a significant reduction in the frequency and duration of attacks and stops asthma attacks. I am grateful to such a high level of medicine for the fact that they are able to improve the lives of many.
