Asthma manifests itself in spasmodic choking. The face turns pale, breathing hoarse, difficult, shortness of breath, chest tightness, fear. In asthma, a cough often occurs with a large number of viscous sputum, as well as stabbing, boring, burning pains in the chest, radiating to the shoulder, acrocyanosis.
Indian traditional medicine distinguishes two forms of bronchial asthma. Periodic spasms of the bronchi (sudden attacks of dyspnea) – based on the mental nature of the disease (fears, acute mental shocks), if coughing and choking, then allergic nature. In cases where asthma is associated with food allergies, you should avoid appropriate products and anything that can trigger an attack – pollen, dusty books and carpets, animal hair, some chemicals, etc., consumption of shrimp, crabs, fish, eggs. In children, asthma has only a psychological cause. Psychological reasons include stress, fear, trauma, greed and greed. Asthma can be the result of a cold, congestion in the airways or hay fever, as well as excessive accumulation of mucus in the lungs, head, or stomach. Causes of asthma can be hereditary factors.
Regardless of the cause, in an asthmatic attack, it is important to immediately remove the bronchospasm and normalize breathing. During an attack, the patient should be released from a tight dress, fresh air should be brought in, hands and feet should be dipped in hot water, or mustards should be put on them, the heart area should be rubbed with a rag dipped in cold water with vinegar and salt (if there is no pulmonary disease), whiskey rub cologne. For asthma attacks, hot chest wraps are applied.
