The 9 Myths on Asthma.
  • Swallowing Fish Cures Asthma
No fish except proper medication could help you in solving your asthmatic issues. Swallowing fish in further could add on your troubles. So beware..
  • Wheezing is the Only Symptom of Asthma
Everybody thinks that wheezing accompanies only with asthma . However this isn’t true, wheezing can also be the symptoms of allergies.
  • Limit the Activities
It’s absolutely an absurd statement, thinking that asthmatics are weak. A person should not restrict himself from outdoor activities just because he is a victim of asthma, the triggers of asthma varies from one environment to another. It is the condition to be restricted and not the activities.
  • Dietary Supplements Ease Asthma
No dietary supplements could help you. There are no supplements that could be added in your diet to escape from asthma. It’s all about the resistance power that the body holds against the asthma instigators.
  • Asthma Attacks Increases in Winter
Winter and Asthma doesn’t share much connection in between. The triggers of asthma could even rise in any other seasons. It’s utterly foolish to believe that moving to dry places eliminate the chance of having asthma.
  • Childhood Disease
Never ever believe it. First of all asthma is not a disease but is a condition that is to be treated in regard to the symptoms. Asthma attacks would happen at anytime and the chances of having asthma is higher during childhood.
  • Inhalers - Only Permanent Solution
Not only inhalers can offer the permanent solution to asthmatic troubles. Ayurveda, the science of life has evoked different medication which are far more effective than inhalers. The other misbelief existing around inhalers is that they contain steroids which are similar to the ones used by athletes for being fit and tireless.
  • Pet Worsens Asthma
Having pets at home worsens asthma with their fur is a common misunderstanding among all. Actually it’s not the fur but the saliva or urine of pets that causes allergies.
  • Asthma Medicine causes Addiction
No it’s not the asthma medicine that causes the addiction, Every medicine has to be taken for a particular course of time to cure the disease permanently. If broken in between the chances of having asthma increases. Actually there is no factor like an addiction to any kind of medicines.
