Naturopathic Asthma Treatment
Asthma affects more than 34 million people in the United States. It is a medical condition that causes your airways to swell and produce extra amounts of mucus. This leads to shortness of breath, constant coughing and wheezing. In some cases, asthma can lead to a severe asthma attack, which can be life threatening. Here at Flow Natural Health Care in Milwaukie, Oregon, we are well-trained to diagnose and manage asthma in children.
Asthma is the number one cause of chronic sickness in children in the United States, and the number of children diagnosed with asthma has been on the rise in recent years. Children typically show symptoms of asthma by the time they reach age 5, and those symptoms include shortness of breath, chest tightness, wheezing and coughing attacks. If your child has a chronic cough, then it could be a sign that they are developing, or have already developed asthma.
There are a number of factors that can trigger asthma, such as exposure to airborne allergens, smog or smoke inhalation, cold air, exercise and even moments of high stress or anxiety. Being overweight or being exposed to secondhand smoke can severely worsen asthma symptoms.
While there is no cure for asthma, Flow Natural Health Care can work with you and your children to educate them about asthma and the ways that they can effectively manage it. By eating healthy and exercising regularly, they can significantly relieve their asthma symptoms.
