It’s estimated that more than 22 million Americans have asthma — that’s about one out of every 13 people! Globally, that number of people with asthma has been growing in recent years.

Most health professionals claim that causes for asthma are unknown.  Some even blamed genetics.  Based on my decades of experience working with children and adults with asthma, my observation is that asthma is caused by environmental factors, both physical and psychological!

Physically speaking, it’s the inflammation of the airway lining and the constriction of the airway passage that causes the breathing difficulties including wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, mucous in the airway, etc.  Physical factors tend to be triggered by molds, dusts, pollen, cigarette smoke (both primary and secondary), dogs, cats, and food allergens such as dairy, sugar, wheat, and yeasts (including mushrooms and yeasty food like peanuts)

From a psychological perspective, unresolved traumatic life events become the anchor of the asthmatic attacks.  The following is an example:

When Cathy was four years old, her parents got divorced.  She secretly wished that her parents would get back together.  Her “dream” disrupted when she witnessed her mom kissing her future stepfather at the beach.  That was the time she had her first asthma attack.  She carried the asthma symptoms into adulthood….

In the next article, I will discuss in detail the holistic treatment for asthma.  Stay tuned!
