Bronchitis Asthma


Bronchial asthma is becoming more and more common these days owing to rise in pollution and stressful lifestyles of people.

Bronchial asthma originates from the affliction of the stomach and the gastrointestinal tracts. Before experiencing the asthma attack, the patient generally has the complaints of indigestion, constipation or diarrhea. Asthma attack can also be sudden due to low tolerance of the patient to certain elements such as pollens, dust, perfume, allergic food, etc.

The attack of asthma takes place early in the morning or at night in majority of the cases. The patient suddenly suffers from difficulty in breathing and wakes up to rush to the window. Such acute attacks may last for anywhere between few hours to few days.
