Budesonide and Asthma Treatment
How does conventional Western medicine treat asthma? Well, typically, it focuses on dilating the bronchial airways that are in spasm by using an assortment of medications. The pharmacological arsenal usually includes anti-inflammatory drugs such as certain steroids, mucolytics and bronchodilators. In contrast, homeopathic treatments for asthma include a wide range of natural remedies and substances. Although it is less effective as a single asthma treatment than an inhaled steroid, Cromolyn acts by reducing the activity of certain allergy cells that cause inflamed, constricted bronchial airways.
Why Asthma Attacks Occur
Research has shown there is a very strong relationship between asthma and panic attacks. The two often occur simultaneously, and people with asthma are much more likely to experience panic attacks. In addition to this, while many asthma attacks are brought on by exercise, there is also an emotional component. Furthermore, changes in atmospheric conditions, including the temperature and quality of the air (specifically, its humidity, irritant and allergen content), along with changes in the barometric pressure, may all be associated with asthma attacks.
Medications Used to Treat Asthma
Medications such as hydrocortisone and its relatives can be used to gradually regulate the size of the bronchial airways of patients with asthma. While many of these medications are taken orally as pills, others are mists or powders which are sprayed into the mouth using a device called an inhaler. In certain cases, drugs that block testosterone’s effect on the body might be recommended. A wide variety of injectable and oral medications are available.
