How to manage asthma

Question : I WOULD like to know more about asthma management. My nine-year-old son has had two asthma attacks in the past six months. He is sensitive to dust mites and often sneezes in the morning.

Answer : ASTHMA is a chronic condition characterised by recurrent attacks of breathlessness and wheezing.

During an asthma attack, the lining of the bronchial tubes swells, causing the airways to narrow and reduce the flow of air into and out of the lungs.

These episodes may be triggered by both hereditary and environmental factors.

Certain foods and allergens such as dust mites, animal danders and pollen may trigger asthma. Therefore, it is important to minimise contact and avoid these allergens.

For this reason, wash sheets, blankets and pillows frequently and at the same time, keep your pet out of the house and bedroom. He can still take part in normal school activities but do avoid long-term strenuous physical activities that may trigger flare-ups.

Your child is encouraged to take wholesome and well-balanced meals. Include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamin C, vitamin B12, vitamin B6 and antioxidants as well as omega-3 fatty acids.

Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to improve airway responsiveness to allergens, respiratory and lung functions.

The traditional herb adhatoda helps to protect against histamine-induced bronchospasm and promotes the coughing up of phlegm from the respiratory tract.

Albizzia has anti-allergy and anti-microbial properties. The combination of these herbs with marshmallow and ribwort aids in respiratory congestion and soothe mucous membranes.
