Asthma is a long-term medical condition in which over-sensitive airways become narrow and inflamed. It makes difficult to breathe normally. Asthma is the one of allergic conditions. Eczema and hay fever are often occurring with asthma together. Some factors can increase the likelihood of developing those conditions.
At risk are smokers, people who have another allergic disease, if a close relative has asthma, eczema, hay fever or allergic conjunctivitis; those born prematurely or with a low birth weight and those who had respiratory problems as a child.
The triggers could be: pollen, dust, feathered or furry animals, exercise, viral infections, chemicals and tobacco smoke. Take the NHS Choices online for asthma symptom checker test. Please get an advice from your GP if you are experiencing asthma.
Dr Buteyko who is well known expert in COPD and Asthma
I met Dr Buteyko in person in 1989. I worked in the Department of Respiratory Disorders at the Research Institute of Tuberculosis and Thoracic Surgery in Kiev at that time. Dr Buteyko was travelling around former Soviet Union with his assistants and patients-volunteers demonstrating invented him way of treatment of these complex respiratory conditions. It was really great to attend his workshops with the demonstrations of clinical cases. I had a wonderful opportunity to discuss the methodology with the author.
The aim of Hypnotherapy could be the one of the effective resources of helping to better control, reduce and in some cases even eliminate life threatening symptoms of asthma. The aim of treating chronic conditions is to achieve control of the symptoms, to maintain this control and to prevent further attacks. The condition is complicate and takes more then one session to get reasonable positive result.
Please note: The Hypnotherapist is dealing with patients the only if their condition is being monitored by their GP. If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have asthma as a medical condition, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment. People with asthma have to continue using proven medical treatments alongside until GP’s notification. You have always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments. It is also my responsibility to write to the person’s GP my concerns and that hypnotherapy is being provided to their patients and the progress the patient has made.
