Diagnosis for Asthma

What Causes Asthma?

If you have been diagnosed with Asthma, you have come to the right website to learn more about this chronic disease. Asthma has been around for at least 10,000 years. However studies have shown that the incidence of asthma might have been very low before the year 1900. The increase of carbon particulates which occurred from the industrial revolution is what made there be an explosion of asthma symptoms. Asthma starts when you inhale an offending substance. That substance gets into our bodies, and our bodies start to reject whatever it is, building antibodies against such an invading organism. Sometimes, unfortunately, the invading organism isn't an organism at all. Food proteins, for example, can be one of the things that our bodies are rejecting. There are basically proteins that we don't like very much, and a few other things that are very common. Eggs, milk and milk products, wheat and wheat products, wheat gluten, soy and soy products, white sugar, solanine in potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, tannin in tea, yeast and peanuts or other kinds of nuts. When your body starts seeing these as if they were invading organisms, that's when we start reacting in asthmatic ways. Our bodies are trying to stop the flow of the offending substance from coming into our bodies, because it's coming in on the air we breathe, it shuts down our air passageways. That doesn't help when we're trying to breathe. Other things can cause us problems also, such as fungus, dust mites, cockroach poop, pollen and many other things. If you find that your asthma is seasonal, then pollen or fungus might be the culprit. Dust mites are tiny little creatures which get into the dust because they are feeding on dead human skin. Nobody wants to hear about dust mites, because there can be millions of them on your bed, in your pillowcase, and they will crawl onto you in the nighttime. People shudder at that thought. However, it's not the mite, itself, that's the problem, it's their poop. Just as with cockroaches, their poop causes us to have problems. What can you do about dust mites? Well, you can buy a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA filter. A HEPA filter has super-small holes in it, so it filters out even the smallest of things. Fortunately, dust mites are huge relative to other allergens in your house. Another thing you can do is buy an air filtration system. They have units which can sit on an end-table. These filter the air, pulling dust mite poop out of the air via electrostatic action.
