      Books on Asthma

    A quick word on the Asthma publications below. There are literally thousands of books available on Asthma, some claiming to cure the condition by diet in only eight days. Personally, I feel there should be a law passed to stop certain individuals from fleecing the often desperate public.

    There is no cure for Asthma, and you can bet your last penny that if there was, it would be on six o clock news. With medication and certain reputable methods of alternate therapy, it is possible to manage Asthma, to the extent that the sufferer should be able to enjoy a nearly normal life. The books below have been selected to enable you to educate yourself about asthma. Happy reading!

     
    Breathing Works for Asthma
      Just 4 minutes a day – watching television, at a desk or even in a traffic jam – is enough to perform simple stretches which can keep the upper body, head and jaw mobile and tension-free and ease breathing. Dysfunctional breathing patterns affect 10% of the population and, while this isn’t confined to people with asthma, they are especially vulnerable. Asthma causes around 1,500 deaths every year, and it can seriously reduce quality of life for anyone affected by it. However, patients can now help themselves.
     
    My House Is Killing Me
      The Home Guide for Families with Allergies and Asthma. It's a world we barely see, but it is teeming with life. In the dust of a typical house, carpet beetles, mites, silverfish, spiders and other creatures live and die, producing new generations every few months. Mould, bacteria and yeast lurk undetected in heating and cooling systems. Debris dispersed into the air from these creatures can cause runny noses, itchy eyes, coughing, headaches and breathing difficulties. Some people, especially those made highly sensitive by allergies, suffer from devastating health problems and the worry that, as one such sufferer lamented, "My house is killing me!" Scrutinizing house dust and air samples with a microscope, indoor air quality expert Jeffrey May has spent his career helping people identify what's causing their chronic health problems. In this text he draws on dramatic personal stories of suffering and relief to help readers understand the links between environmental factors and problems like allergies and asthma. Explaining how air conditioning, finished basements, and other home features affect air quality, he offers a step-by-step approach to identifying, controlling, and often eliminating the sources of indoor pollutants and allergens. If we could see this contamination, May observes, the air would look as murky as stagnant water and we would know not to breathe it. Just as he looks at spaces and systems during an indoor air quality investigation, May focuses first on the areas of daily life (bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen), then moves into attics and basements (including heating and air conditioning), and finally outside to the garage and the exterior of a home. Along with offering a wealth of practical advice and proven solutions for various problems, he includes a glossary of terms and a list of valuable resources.

      Freedom from Asthma: Buteyko's Revolutionary Treatment
      The observations of a Russian doctor, Konstantin Buteyko, suggest that breathing patterns are fundamental to the natural and effective treatment of asthma. Buteyko believes that only shallow breathing, which increases the proportion of carbon dioxide in our systems, enables the body to function efficiently. The first clinical trial of Buteyko's controversial treatment, conducted in Australia, showed that 90 per cent of asthma sufferers were able significantly to reduce their dependence on medication. Alexander Stalmatski worked with Buteyko in Russia, and then practised the Buteyko Technique in Australia and England. In this book he explains the physiology behind the theory, describes how the Buteyko method works, and provides simple self-help exercises for asthma sufferers who wish to treat themselves.
     
      Sinus Survival
      The Holistic Medical Treatment for Allergies, Asthma, Bronchitis, Colds and Sinusitis.
    A reader from Honolulu, Hawaii
    Having suffered through the medical system for years with repeated antibiotic treatments, this book summarized my "condition" better than anything I'd read in years. After 6 weeks of faithfully following this regime, I was sleeping at night, NOT coughing up fluid like a consumption patient each morning and headaches were a memory rather than a daily reality. Highly recommend this book.
