    ASTHMA DESCRIPTION

    AN OBSTRUCTIVE LUNG DISEASE

    Asthma is a respiratory condition in which breathing is suddenly and dramatically obstructed. During a typical asthma attack, the bronchial tubes contract and swell. These airways also fill with mucus, making breathing even more difficult. As a result, asthma sufferers often feel as if they are starving for air. Other symptoms include wheezing, gasping, coughing, and an intense, tight feeling in the chest. Today, asthma affects over 12 million people in the United States; there is growing speculation that the number ison the rise, due to the ever-increasing levels of toxins in our environment. These toxins include exhaust fumes from cars, chemicals found in cleaning products and tobacco smoke. Asthma also can be triggered by an allergen, such as mold spores, pollen, dust and animal dander.

    common asthma triggers


    The symptoms of asthma are similar to those other diseases, including emphysema and bronchitis, so it is important to have a medical checkup. If asthma is diagnosed, follow these guidelines to reduce the risk of occurence. Heredity and age predispose people to the condition, but fear or stress can cause an abrupt attack in anyone. If you have asthma, medical care is vital. However, natural remedies can offer relief from asthma attacks; they can even provide some means of prevention.

    aromatherapy for asthma


    AROMATHERAPY RECOMMENDATIONS

    HELPFUL ESSENTIAL OILS Aromatherapy essential oils are well suited to reducing and soothing broncial spasms. Since they vaporize easily, the essential oils can reach even the most fine bronchial tissues and relieve inflammation there. Certain essential oils are considered antimicrobial and will benefit those who suffer from asthma caused by an underlying infection.

    In order to evaluate the efficiency of treating asthma with essential oils, a treatment plan must be rigorously followed for a period of a least 3 months.

    These single aromatherapy oils include:

  • Chamomile Essential Oil
  • Eucalyptus Essential Oil - Eases congestion due to mucus.
  • Fennel Essential Oil
  • Thyme Essential Oil


  • AROMATHERAPY BLENDS FOR ASTHMA



    DISINFECTANT SPRAY BLEND

    3 drops Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus citriodora) Essential Oil
    2 drops Pine (Pinus sylvestris) Essential Oil
    2 drops Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) Essential Oil
    1 drop Tea-Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) Pure Oil
    1 drop Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) Essential Oil
    Add to 1 ounce of filtered or distilled water

    As a prevention therapy, inhalation of an aromatherapy blend can be used to reduce bacteria in the air. The blend may be used in a diffuser, on a tissue or in a spritzer to mist the air.



    ASTHMA PREVENTION BLEND

    Inhale aroma from the bottle or on a cloth for 2 to 3 minutes at a time, 3 to 5 times daily. May also add 3 to 5 drops in the bath. This blend will be relaxing to the central nervous system, will have anti-inflammatory and spasmolidic actions, and be toning and stimulating to the respiratory system.

    28 drops Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana) Essential Oil
    12 drops Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea) Essential Oil
    2 drops Ravensara (Agathophyllum aromatica) Essential Oil

    Ravensara may be applied to the chest just before a morning shower. This is to stimulate the respiratory system, and aid in expelling mucus. Always dilute any essential oil with a small amount of base oil before applying it directly to the skin to prevent skin irritation.



    ANOTHER PREVENTIVE BLEND

    Another preventative treatment is inhalation of Inula (Inula graveolens) and Khella (Ammi visnaga) right out of the bottle. The use of Inula is to block the actions of histamines. Khella is an antispasmodic and helps to clear deep bronchial congestion. Khella masks the output of the mast cells that line the respiratory mucosa, thereby blocking allergic reaction in the nasal mucosa and in the bronchial tubes. Cromolyn, a mast-cell-stabilizing drug, acts as a bronchodialator and was originally derived from the Khellin plant.



    BREATH EASY BLEND

    This blend may also be utilized during a mild asthma attack as it helps to open the airways.

    28 drops Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia) Essential Oil
    20 drops Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus smithii) Essential Oil
    8 drops Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) Essential Oil



    ANTIVIRAL INHALATION BLEND

    It is very important to boost the immune system and avoid viruses during the flu and cold season. Many times a flu virus turns into bronchitis and other respiratory ailments. This blend contains phenols for their bactericidal and immune modulating properties and aldehydes for their anti-infectious and anti-inflammatory properties.

    3 drops Clove (Eugenia caryophyllus) Essential Oil
    1 drop Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus) Essential Oil

    During cold and flu season when a virus may be lurking around the corner, inhale the blend 3 to 5 times a day. Put 1 or 2 drops on a handkerchief or inhale from the bottle. Do not apply this blend directly to the skin.



    ASTHMA CALMING SALVE

    16 drops Lemon (Citrus limon) Essential Oil
    12 drops Angelica (Angelica archangelica) Essential Oil
    12 drops Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea) Essential Oil


    Blend with 2 ounces of Sunflower Oil and Olive Oil, Bees Wax, Gotu Kola (Centella), Echinacea and Calendula herbal oils (see below about Making Herbal Oils). Can be used to help calm and restore breathing.



    MAKING YOUR OWN HERBAL OILS

    The Gotu Kola, Echinacea and Calendula herbal oils recommended above can be made yourself from scratch. Once made, herbal oils are suitable for a range of uses. They can be burned to add fragrance to the air, added to baths for silky and heavenly soaks, made into perfumes, etc..
    clean jar with tight lid

    Step 1. Find a large, clear, clean glass jar or bottle with a tight lid.
    pack herbs in jar

    Step 2. Pack fresh, clean, whole herbs loosely into the jar.
    cover with vegetable oil

    Step 3. Cover the herbs with high quality olive or vegetable oil.
    sit on sunny windowsill

    Step 4. Put lid on as tightly as you can and set jar on a sunny windowsill (usually best done in the summer, but can be done in winter with a window that gets maximum light).
    gently shake jar

    Step 5. Leave jar on the windowsill for 30 days, shaking it gently once a day.
    assemble straining supplies

    Step 6. Find another large, clear, clean glass jar or bottle with a tight lid, a large funnel and some cheesecloth.
    put cheesecloth in funnel

    Step 7. Pack the cheesecloth fairly tightly lin the funnel.
    put funnel in jar

    Step 8. Set the funnel in the empty jar, and wrap some cheese cloth around where the mouth of the jar meets the funnel to prevent spillage.
    pour oil through cheesecloth

    Step 9. Slowly pour the oil into the clean jar through the funnel. The cheesecloth will strain the herbs, letting the oil filter into the jar. Store herbal oil in a cool, dark place, and smell it occasionally. If it smells rancid, do not use.

    HELPFUL HERBAL OIL TIPS

  • In the summer pick or purchase Mint to make a refreshing oil.
  • Experiment with mixes. Fill the jar with a mix of Chamomile, Vanilla and Lavender to ensure pleasant sleep. Mix Vanilla and Cinnamon to fill your kitchen with cooking scents.
  • In the fall try using Rosemary which also has astringent and healing properties as well.
  • This does not make essential oil. This makes diluted herbal oil. There is no need to further dilute this oil.
  • Lavender is soothing, Cinnamon invigorating, Mint fresh. White Willow bark has a spicy smell, sage is used by Native Americans for cleansing, Chamomile is used to soothe and help sleep. Do some research about your favorite scents, and see what you can find. Herbal oils can be used when making healing salves and ointments.
  • Some herbs can be used dried, like Cinnamon, but for the most part, dried herbs lose their essential oils. If the dried herb has a strong aroma, you can try making a herbal oil out of it.
  • White Willow bark (or any kind of bark or nuts or roots) may need to be soaked in water first, left in the oil longer, and/or used as freshly as possible.



  • ASTHMA CALMING BLEND

    For a mild to severe attack, try breathing into a handkerchief or piece of material or even your cupped hands. Try to concentrate more on expiration than inspiration. This has a very calming effect and can restore normal breathing. A drop of calming essential oil such as Lavender Oil or Ylang Ylang Oil may enhance this treatment.



    ASTHMA FACE SPLASH OR FACIAL MIST

    During an acute attack, remember to stay calm and try this face splash. The use of sedative-type and antihistamine-like essential oils can be quite effective in helping to restore respiration. This blend is also calming to the central nervous system.

    7 drops Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia) Essential Oil
    5 drops Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica) Essential Oil
    2 drops Marjoram (Origanum marjorana) Essential Oil

    Fill a basin with cold water. Add 2 drops of the aromatherapy blend and mix well. Splash on the face with eyes closed several times, pat dry and repeat 2 more times. This recipe can also be made into a facial mist and kept in the refrigerator. Another use for this remedy would be to simply inhale from the bottle.



    ASTHMA CONGESTION-FIGHTING SALVE

    Asthmatics tend to fight low level congestion on a regular basis. The purpose of this salve is to fight congestion, calm the nervous system and reduce inflammation and spasms in the bronchial tract. Athough you may not care for the final aroma, use it with a purpose and an open mind.

    8 drops Clary sage (Salvia sclarea) Essential OIl
    4 drops Frankincense (Boswellia carteria) Essential Oil
    4 drops Sandalwood (Santalum album) Essential Oil
    4 drops German Chamomile (Matricaria chamomila) Essential Oil
    4 drops Ginger (Zingiber officinalis) Essential Oil

    Blend with 2 ounces of Sunflower Oil, Olive Oil, and melted Bees Wax, Pour into container and allow to set.



    ASTHMA MASSAGE OIL

    After the breathing returns to normal, often times after a prolonged attack or bronchitis, the back, shoulder and chest muscles are very tight and sore from labored breathing. A massage oil to decrease inflammation of the bronchioles, reduce muscle spasms and calm the nervous system is to be applied to the entire back and shoulders as well as the upper chest and feet. This massage oil is great for sue at bedtime too.

    16 drops Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia) Essential Oil
    3 drops Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) Essential Oil
    3 drops Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus smithii) Essential Oil
    3 drops Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata)
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil (Almond Herbal Oil)

    Put vegetable oil in a small container. Add essential oils and blend well.

  • NUTRITION & DIETARY RECOMMENDATIONS

    A HOLISTIC BALANCED DIET

  • Eat a diet consisting primarily of fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, Oatmeal, Brown Rice, and whole grains. The diet should be relatively high in protein, low in carbohydrates to provide the necessary anti-inflammatory nutrients and contain no sugar. Take herbal and nutritional supplements to boost your immune system, in particular Vitamin B-6, Vitamin B-12, and Vitamin C.

  • Eat lightly as a large meal can cause shortness of breath by making the stomach put pressure on the diaphragm. Eat balanced 5 or 6 smaller meals throughout the day rather than 2 or 3 larger meals. This will keep blood sugar (glucose) from greatly fluctuating and prevent low blood sugar problems (hypoglycemia). Keep your between meal snacks healthy and nutritious.

  • MoonDragon's Health & Wellness: Hypoglycemia

  • Include plenty of Garlic and Onions in your diet. These foods contain Quercetin and Mustard oils, which have been shown to inhibit an enzyme that aids in releasing inflammatory chemicals.

  • Include "Greens & Green Drinks" in your program. You can make your own using a blender and/or juicer (See MoonDragon's Nutritional Therapy Index for therapy links) or obtain Kyo-Green supplements. This is an excellent source of "green therapy" with aged garlic. Take it 3 times a day 1/2 hour before meals.

  • MoonDragon's Nutrition Therapy: Juicing
    MoonDragon's Health Therapy: Therapeutic Liquids & Recipes)

  • Avoid gas-producing foods, such as cabbage, beans, cauliflower, and cabbage, and large amounts of bran, or take an Enzyme Complex. Gas can irritate an asthmatic condition by putting pressure on the diaphragm.

  • Do not eat ice cream or drink extremely cold liquids. Cold can shock the bronchial tubes into spasms, which is why cold winter weather can be a problem for asthmatics.

  • Use a juice fast, a fast using distilled water and Lemon juice, or a combination of both for three days each month to help rid the body of toxins and mucus. Do not do a fasting program if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

  • MoonDragon's Health Therapy: Fasting

  • Try using Bee Propolis, which is soothing to the mucous membranes.

  • Use an elimination diet to see if certain foods aggravate the asthmatic condition. Common culprits include alfalfa, chamomile, corn, peanuts, soy, eggs, beefs, carrots, colas, cold beverages (which may cause bronchial spasm), dairy products (including milk and ice cream), fish, red meat (especially pork), processed foods, salt, spinach, chicken and turkey, white flour, and white sugar.

  • HERBAL RECOMMENDATIONS

    LUNG HERBALS

  • Ginkgo Biloba, an herb containing the active ingredient gingkolide B, has shown good results in many studies.

  • Lobelia Extract is helpful during an asthma attack; it is a bronchial smooth muscle relaxant and expectorant.

  • ClearLungs from RidgeCrest Herbals is a Chinese herbal formula designed to reduce inflammation and mucus, opening up the airways to the lungs and promoting free breathing. Ridgecrest Herbals ClearLungs Red Herbal is an Ephedra-free Chinese herbal formulation to naturally relieve bronchial congestion, tightness of the chest, wheezing, and restore freer breathing. ClearLungs is a unique Chinese herbal formula designed to provide nutrients to the lungs. Each ingredient has a special role to play in providing nutritional support. Though free breathing is easily taken for granted, it has a significant effect on our overall health and well-being. The primary function of the lungs is to pump oxygen into our systems. Oxygen is essential to proper brain function and plays a key role in digestion, heart function and the overall health of blood vessels. The lungs are also a major eliminative organ. Proper lung function may be affected by compromised by age, physical condition, poor diet, habits, health, or environmental factors. While ClearLungs cannot control these factors, it can provide specific support for good lung function, whatever your situation. ClearLungs has been tested on chiropractic patients in clinics throughout the United States. Eighty-five to 90 percent of the patients tested received positive results.

  • The difference between the reformulated ClearLungs Blue and the classic ClearLungs Red formulas are that the ClearLungs Blue once contained a small amount of ephedra, while ClearLungs Red was always ephedra-free. In 2002, ClearLungs Blue was reformulated to remove the 6 mg of ephedra per capsule, and at the same time, while making it even more effective. New ClearLungs Blue (Extra Strength) has the same Chinese herbal formula, but it is made with 5:1 herbal extracts instead of dried and powdered herbs, and homeopathic ingredients have also been added for even better effectiveness. In short, if you love ClearLungs Red, it is still available, but you may prefer new stronger ClearLungs Blue. ClearLungs Blue is classified as an over-the-counter drug because of the homeopathic ingredients, while ClearLungs Red remains classified as a nutritional supplement. New ClearLungs Blue is also available in a pleasant-tasting all-vegan liquid formula. It should be noted that ClearLungs contains almond powder, and should be avoided by anyone with severe allergies to tree nuts. ClearLungs are complex formulas with small doses of many different ingredients. This reduces the likelihood of an adverse reaction or interaction with a drug. As a rule, it is best to take ClearLungs a few hours before or after taking medication. Also, please consult your physician if you are on prescription medication. It is generally a good practice to ensure your safety. General adult dosage is 2 capsules twice daily. The usual dosage for children is half the adult dosage. You can adjust the dosage for body weights. For example, if a teenager has an adult weight, he or she would take an adult dosage.

  • Mullein Herbal Oil is said to be a powerful remedy for bronchial congestion. The oil stops coughs, unclogs bronchial tubes, and helps clear up asthma attacks. Users say that when they take it in tea or fruit juice, the effect is almost immediate.

  • Other herbs beneficial for asthma include Echinacea, Ephreda (Ma Huang), Goldenseal, Horsetail, Juniper Berries, Licorice Root, and Slippery Elm Bark tablets.

  • CAUTION: Do not use Ephedra of you suffer from anxiety, glaucoma, heart disease, high blood pressure, or insomnia, or if you are taking a monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor drug for depression. Do not take Goldenseal on a daily basis for more than one week at a time and do not use it during pregnancy; if you have a history of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, glaucoma, use it only under supervision. Do not use Licorice on a daily basis for more than seven days in a row, and avoid it completely if you have high blood pressure.

  • HOLISTIC & LIFESTYLE RECOMMENDATIONS

    CONSIDERATIONS

  • If you use aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), do so with caution. Pain killers such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Nuprin, and others), naproxen (Naprosyn), and piroxicam (Feldene) account for over 2/3 of drug-related asthmatic reactions, with aspirin causing over half of these. Chemotherapeutic agents and antibiotics can also induce asthma reactions.

  • Use Urban Air Defense from Source Naturals 2 to 3 times daily.

  • Apply Castor Oil packs on the back and around the lung and kidney areas. To make a castor oil pack, place castor oil in a pan and heat but do not boil it. Dip a piece of cheesecloth or other white cotton material into the oil until the cloth is saturated. Apply the cloth to the affected area and cover it with a piece of plastic that is larger in size than the cotton cloth. Place a heating pad over the plastic and use it to keep the pack warm. Keep the pack in place for 1/2 to 2 hours, as needed.

  • meditation and relaxation techniques for stress reduction


  • Take time to breathe. It is essential to maintain emotional balance and incorporate breathing exercises into a daily routine. Just ten minutes a day of breathing exercises can bring relief and deeper breathing. An Essential Oil blend to accompany a breathing regime would help facilitate expansion of the bronchiole tubes and increase expiration.

  • Practice methods to relieve stress. Stress and strong emotions like worry and fear can trigger an asthma attack.

  • MoonDragon's Women's Health Disorders Information: Stress

  • Avoid furry and feathery animals; the food additives BHA and BHT; FD&C Yellow No. 5 food dye; tobacco and other types of smoke; and the amino acid tryptophan.

  • If you suspect that dust mites are causing your asthma symptoms, try to get rid of the bugs. There are vacuum cleaners on the market that destroy these mites. An application of benzyl benzoate powder (such as X-MITE) will eliminate mites for two to three months. One pound of this powder treats approximately 150 square feet of carpeting or fabric. If local pharmacies do not carry the powder, you can order it from AllerSearch Laboratores, A division of Alkaline Corporation, P.O. Box 306, Oakhurst NJ 07755-0306, Phone 732-531-7830. Cover your mattress and pillows with a allergen-specific mattress and pillow covers. This will help with preventing allergic reactions while sleeping due to allergens in your mattress and pillows.
