Asthma
Herbal & Home Remedies Herbal Remedies Home Remedies
 
A condition of intermittent, reversible airways obstruction. It can be divided into two types: Extrinsic Asthma, which is asthma triggered by external agents such as pollen, chemicals, and Intrinsic Asthma which is triggered by boggy membranes, congested tissues, or other native causes even adrenalin stress or exertion.

Intrinsic asthma generally develops later in life and virtually nothing is known of its causes. It carries a worse prognosis than extrinsic asthma and tends to be less responsive to treatment.

A common disorder in which chronic inflammation of the bronchial tubes (bronchi) makes them swell, narrowing the airways and making it difficult to breathe. Asthma involves only the bronchial tubes and does not affect the air sacs or the lung tissue itself. Airway narrowing in asthma is due to three major processes acting on the bronchi: inflammation (see above), spasm (bronchospasm), and hyperactivity (over-reaction or allergy to some substance)
