Asthma is a common inflammatory chronic disease that affects the airway. In order to perform correctly shallow breathing, you will have to keep your posture straight and your chest in a natural position. Then, start inhaling low quantities of air through your diaphragm. Avoid filling your thoraces with air, as your interest is to take in lower amounts of air. Inhale no more than 2 or 3 seconds and use the same time in order to exhale. This will prevent you from filling your lungs with too much air.
A Personal Note: Homeopathic medicines work a lot different than natural supplements because they work at the core healing level. Homeopathy is very intricate, very individualized, and very powerful. I have seen cases where healing from an acute injury occurs almost instantaneous (a concussion case—see my website). I have also seen people with chronic illnesses no longer suffer (again, see my website).
According to a USA Today article, approximately 5,300 people die from asthma complications each year and it is the sixth leading cause of chronic disease in America, costing nearly $9.8 billion annually. Asthma can be triggered by allergies to things such as dust, pollen, pet animals. You should try to eliminate the attack as finding the cause of the attack is the first step towards controlling this condition.
Eucalyptus oil is an effective treatment for asthma symptoms too because of its decongestant properties. Many studies have shown the important role played by the chemical eucalyptol which helps in breaking down the mucus. Just by sprinkling a few drops on a paper towel and keeping it on your head, will help your airways relax. You can also put a few drops of it in boiling water and take steam. Try to take deep breaths if possible.
Make sure that you keep the levels of humidity in your home low. Humidity in your home enables the growth of mold. Mold spores will contaminate your air and trigger asthma symptoms or make them worse. If you live in an area that’s high in humidity, consider purchasing a dehumidifier to keep the humidity levels lower in your home.
