Asthma – Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment

The Chiropractic link

asthma-newAsthma is one of the major and most common medical conditions experienced not only by kids but by adults as well.

There are about 300 million people each year being affected by asthma and about 250,000 deaths are attributable to this condition. According to the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and  Immunology

Causes of Asthma

Asthma is caused by a combination  of factors which are contributed to the increasing chemical and toxin levels in our environment. This includes the everyday irritants such as formaldehyde, molds and pollen.  Even the increasing use of antibiotics and the use of disinfectants can contribute to the development of asthma.

So, if these factors are the only reasons for developing or triggering an asthma attack, why would people living in the same house, breathing the same air and exposed to the same level of irritants, suffer differently or not at all? Believe me, there is something else going on.

The Asthma-Chiropractic Link

A lot of drugs have already been developed to temporarily reduce the severity and frequency of the symptoms. However, it doesn’t attack the underlying cause of the condition. People die or develop other conditions due to the side effects of the pharmaceutical company’s medications. Just watch TV for 10 minutes and you will see commercials feeding you deceiving information along with their long list of side effects.

Did you ever wonder why the pharmaceutical companies have to sell you the drugs even though you have to go to your MD to get a prescription? Have you ever heard at the end of their ads…ask your doctor is xxxxx is right for you.  Shouldn’t the doctor know and why should I be the one to suggest a medication? Isn’t that their job?

I’ll tell you. If you or a family member ends up being one of the victims who developed a serious side effect or died as a result of taking the drugs they recommended, I guarantee you that in any wrongful death suit they will ask if you or the person who died ever saw the commercial and if they brought it up to their doctor. If so, they will claim that you were told about all the side effects and risks involved and it was the victims fault for not disclosing all information to their doctor before receiving the prescription.

** New Zealand and the United States are the ONLY countries in the world that are allowed to advertise drugs on TV.  What does that tell you?

Back to the topic at hand:

The diaphragm is the major muscle used for breathing. It is supplied by the nerves coming from the C3, C4 and C5 vertebral levels which can be found in the mid-neck area. Problems in these spinal levels can have a significant effect on the nerve supply to the diaphragm. Therefore, reducing these problems can help restore the proper function of the nervous system that controls the respiratory system.

According to the data published by the Journal of Vertebral  Subluxation Research, individuals who received chiropractic care during a two-month study saw a decrease in the number of attacks by about 45{9af40bf80e52f11aa5d7472b6ee2426c1e641e46093dbc3d29b8bc21a0ebb17e}. Moreover, after the study about 31{9af40bf80e52f11aa5d7472b6ee2426c1e641e46093dbc3d29b8bc21a0ebb17e} of the total study subjects had voluntarily decided to decrease their medications on their own. Again, these results are from improved nervous system that controls the lung.

If the cause of your condition is related to the misalignment of one or more vertebra which is directly affecting the flow of nerve impulses to your body, you need to know that only specific chiropractic adjustments to gently move your spine into balance is going to fix the cause. Medications may change the symptoms you are experiencing, but drugs have serious side effects and do not address the cause of the symptom. Physical therapy in the case where spinal misalignments are the cause is a waste of money and time.

The diagnosis is simple. You either have misaligned vertebra or other boney components that are out of alignment or you don’t. A good analogy  is when your car’s wheels are out of alignment. The only fix is to realign your wheels.
