  1. Asthma is an unpleasant and usually chronic inflammatory disease. It causes the airflow passages to be blocked thus preventing the individual from breathing normally. The person feels s/he can’t breathe and panics even more. The airflow passage is blocked because it’s slightly swollen, and during an asthma attack the muscles contract and blocks even further the airways and no air reaches the lungs. See more http://survival-mastery.com/med/health/natural-remedies-for-asthma.html
