Asthma is a lung disease that inflames
and narrows your airways. Normally, as you inhale air moves freely through your trachea, or windpipe then through large tubes called bronchi smaller tubes called bronchioles and finally into tiny sacs called alveoli. Small blood vessels, called capillaries, surround your alveoli. Oxygen from the air you breathe passes into your capillaries then carbon dioxide from your body passes out of your capillaries into your alveoli so that your lungs can get rid of it when you exhale. Your bronchioles expand when the air is warm, moist, and free of irritants and allergy causing substances called allergens. When air is cold or dry, or contains irritants or allergens, your bronchioles contract. If you have asthma, your airways are frequently inflamed and swollen. Certain substances can cause you are
inflamed airways to overreact even more, resulting in an asthma attack. Triggers of asthma attacks are slightly different for everyone, but usually include: outdoor irritants and allergens, such as pollen smoke pollution and cold weather indoor irritants and allergens, such as mold pet dander dust mites and cockroach droppings food allergens, such as fish shellfish eggs peanuts and soy and conditions, such as respiratory infections stress strong emotions and exercise. The symptoms of an asthma attack include: coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and tightness in your chest. During an asthma attack (also known as a bronchospasm) the muscles around your airways tighten and the airway wall becomes more swollen. Your airways also produce thick mucus that narrows them even more making it hard for you to breathe. If you have asthma, your doctor may prescribe medications to reduce: inflammation in your airways, constriction of the muscles surrounding your airways, or mucous secretion in your airways. During an asthma attack you may need to use a short-acting rescue medication called a bronchodilator. This medication causes your airway muscles to relax quickly and provide symptom relief within minutes. Since there is no cure for asthma, the
goal is to prevent you from having asthma attacks by using long-acting, anti-inflammatory control medications. If you take them every day, they will reduce the inflammation of your airways making them less sensitive to triggers of asthma attacks.

  1. I was just diagnosed with a type of asthma that gets me sick every week almost, I forgot the scientific term. Comment section with asthma save me

  2. I mean…I do have asthma…had one attack when I was 3 but nothing too big;
    Had another one at the age of 7 and went to hospital…and to be honest…I didn’t even feel like I was going to die…I didn’t feel nothing at all,I didn’t even know what asthma was.
    Thankfully I can afford inhalers and nearly nobody in my family smokes.
    The only problem would be pollution and the fact that I would like to be a singer or stuff like that…but I guess pollution is our problem,not mine’s

  3. I have asthma snice iam only 9 years old its hurt me iam think why Iam not like normal people its destroy my daily routine sleep less nights depression anxiety I really feel I dont do any thing but ALLAH IS the one who loves you in every situation and may Allah helps me and every person who suffers from asthma or any diseases ameen

  4. Yow, why does this type of things appear on my recommended ? After I watched this, I feel bad for the people who does have asthma.

  5. And then there’s the type of asthma that flares up when you get sick with flu or infection 😩

    It really sucks when you take your inhaler and it doesn’t help with the attack; it’s just constant coughing and wheezing and that pressure on your chest.

  6. I have asthma
    When i was in school everyone where laughing on me when i have an asthma attack (because most of times when i get into asthma attack under my eyes and lips turn blue )
    Girls in class used to put perfume to make me have an attack so turn into blue smurf and they made me a joke to laugh on
    No one ever understood how much it hurts asthma is not funny
    And my condition get so much worse
    Ones the school ruched me to the hospital because nothing were helping me to back to breathe i almost died that day and they got me to the ER room alone and i passed out when i woked up(after 6 hours ) there were a tube in my mouth so i would breath and i was alone with hundred tubes and wires and shocked and terrified
    I stayed in the hospital for two days with the shity tube in my mouth it was horrible
    From that day each time i had an asthma attack i get so anxious and stressed because remember that bad scary day
    Asthma is making every thing harder and people never get it
    I wish one day to have a cure or anything to make life easier to the people who have it

  7. I quit smoking over a year ago when I was diagnosed with asthma & chronic bronchitis about 3 yrs ago.

    Asthma attacks are so scary. Especially for someone like myself who is new to the disease and sometimes I forget my inhaler. Like if I have an attack at home and dont put it back in my bag and end up at work without one.

  8. Asthma will drive you to suicide!! K hate this I cant sleep I cant breathe why would God give us this horrible punishment, not being able to breathe has to be top 5 tortures

  9. If u have asthma, severe cold, Tuberculosis, try Jal nati, eat pepper with ADATHODAI(Herb)
    Don't go to hospital, Don't eat poison medicines.


    The psychoimmune aspect is absolutely necessary as a complement to asthma medication. The Asthma & Allergy Spiritual Healing Meditation Book contains the effective techniques of support and self-help of the Indalo Codex Method for natural allergy relief and help to integrally heal asthma. Many people confessed that they felt immediate improvement, quality of sleep and that following a year did not suffer from allergy symptoms. Many people practicing 5 minutes a day of the Indalo Codex have managed to respire well all year round.

  11. I was at school whilst having an asthma attack and everyone told me to stop breathing so loudly. I hate asthma

  13. I’m glad I don’t have extreme or serious asthma. Sports really helped me with my asthma because I used to have severe asthma but sports(running, basketball, etc.) made it mild. Although I have a problem eating a lot and then it is hard for me to breathe after, like really hard to breathe. What is this called?

  14. I almost died because of an asthma attack back in 2015. Asthma is no joke. The feeling of not being able to breath is the worst feeling in the world. My asthma has been really good since my last incident and it’s because I use an inhaler daily and I also take a pill for my asthma as well. For anyone that has really bad asthma, I have been there and I know it’s difficult but if you stick to your medications, you will get better eventually. ❤️

  15. Is there a cure for anything?
    No cure for cancer
    No cure for lupus
    No cure for hiv
    No cure for asthma
    No cure copd
    No cure for Alzheimer’s

    There are only treatments. I mean, they give vaccine for your immune systems for seasonal colds but that’s your own body protecting you so not exactly a cure.

  16. All or dead body link team itmees so ly thy or playing like unknowledge.if I told Milatry drill MNS thy want understand but .thy dono wat drill minings FR tht ly thy or in online

  17. I have asthma… this means I can't do sports as much or I'm not that good at sports because of my lungs. This is the reason why I'm also very slow at running. I get picked on because I'm not good at sports but people should understand that I have an illness/disease (asthma) and it's not my fault! It's not fair that people with asthma should be laughed at because "your not good at sports " it's a condition,ok?

  18. What's really annoying is that you know how many people grow out of their asthma, for me it's the opposite. As I get older I'm struggling more and I think the seriousness of it has gone up. I'm getting more attacks and stuff. I had my first attack at 2 years old and had to be rushed to hospital and it's just gotten worse and worse 🤧🙁

  19. Having asthma really sucks because you cannot laugh really hard, you cannot sleep, and you cannot live your life in peace.

  20. Asthma can be curable but,the condition is you have to be consistent and believe in Yourself

  21. Did anyone using Ventolin get bad side effects?

  32. Why is every single person in this comment section a devout Christian? I just came here to know how my asthma actually works, I know that god isn’t going to heal me, I’m not that naïve

  33. Initially, I had mild asthma that kept growing each winter. I tried to remove it by taking many things but the only remedy was an inhaler in my pocket. Once I had gone to my uncle's house in Chandigarh when the inhaler malfunctioned. I pressed the panic button and he took me to Planet Ayurveda and got Asthma Care Pack & some diet tips that were followed sincerely. My Asthma vanished into thin air never to recur. THANKS, PLANET A!

  41. Why do you always declare "there is no cure for asthma"? Those who forever say it don't know what they're talking about, that is untrue and unfounded.
    My asthma of 20+ years was totally reversed and cured naturally.

  42. My baby was suffering from breathing problem. He wheezed all
    the time and sometimes did gasp for breath. We took him to so many Doctors but
    wheezing did not stop. One day I was surfing on the internet for something and
    got to know about Planet Ayurveda. I went there, met Dr. Vikram Chauhan. He
    prescribed us with some herbal medicines along with that told some home remedies
    to follow. We followed all for couple of months. It showed amazing results. No
    longer wheezing was there. We are so happy now.. Thanks
