Prevention

  • You can reduce asthma symptoms by avoiding known triggers and substances that irritate the airways.
  • Cover bedding with "allergy-proof" casings to reduce exposure to dust mites.
  • Remove carpets from bedrooms and vacuum regularly.
  • Use only unscented detergents and cleaning materials in the home.
  • Keep humidity levels low and fix leaks to reduce the growth of organisms such as mold.
  • Keep the house clean and keep food in containers and out of bedrooms -- this helps reduce the possibility of cockroaches, which can trigger asthma attacks in some people.
  • If a person is allergic to an animal that cannot be removed from the home, the animal should be kept out of the bedroom. Place filtering material over the heating outlets to trap animal dander.

    Eliminate tobacco smoke from the home. This is the single most important thing a family can do to help a child with asthma. Smoking outside the house is not enough. Family members and visitors who smoke outside carry smoke residue inside on their clothes and hair -- this can trigger asthma symptoms. Persons with asthma should also avoid air pollution, industrial dusts, and other irritating fumes as much as possible.



    OIL PULLING


    Oil Pulling

    Discovery Of Oil Pulling:

    It is a little known fact that Ayurveda prescribed Sesame Oil swishing in the mouth as one of the daily routine habits in the morning for oral and dental hygiene.

    In case of gum, teeth and mouth diseases the same is prescribed for cure. The beneficial effects are given as: "It is beneficial for strength of jaws, depth of voice, flabbiness of face, improving gustatory sensation and good taste for food. One used to this practice never gets dryness of throat, nor do his lips ever get cracked; his teeth will never be carious and will be deep rooted; he will not have any toothache nor will his teeth set on edge by sour intake; his teeth can chew even the hardest eatables"-Charaka samhita Ch V -78 to 80.(src:www.oilpulling.com))


    Oil Pulling Cures Asthma

    "Asthma occurs when the main air passages of your lungs, the bronchial tubes, become inflamed. The muscles of the bronchial walls tighten, and cells in the lungs produce extra mucus further narrowing your airways. This can cause minor wheezing to severe difficulty in breathing. In some cases, your breathing may be so labored that an asthma attack becomes life-threatening.

    Asthma is a chronic but treatable condition. You can manage your condition much like someone manages diabetes or heart disease. You and your doctor can work together to control asthma, reduce the severity and frequency of attacks and help maintain a normal, active life."

    Sesame Oil has the magic to maintain oral hygiene. Starting the day with oil pulling (using Sesame Oil) works wonders. This therapy is effective in fighting bad breath and micro organisms that sit on your mouth. Though much has been deliberated on oil pulling, still many do not know the concept. Interestingly, it has found its mention in Ayurveda and has been regarded for centuries as the best way to fight tooth decay and gum disease.

    HOW IS IT DONE

    A teaspoon of Sesame Oil should be taken in the mouth, sipped, sucked and pulled for 20 minutes. The swished oil should not be swallowed. "It is extensively used as a traditional Indian folk remedy to prevent tooth decay, bleeding gums and dryness of throat and cracked lips." says Dr. Sharath Asokan, a leading preventive dental surgeon.

    Sesame Oil has advantages that include no staining, no lingering after taste and no allergy. It is a natural product and it is cost-effective than chemical mouthwashes.(src:Oil Pulling)
