Treat asthma effectively with vital mushrooms

Both in Germany and worldwide, bronchial asthma (or asthma for short) is the most common chronic disease in childhood. In Germany, asthma affects about 10% of children and 5% of adults. Children suffer from asthma more frequently than adults because their mucosal surface area is particularly large in relation to the width of the airways. Although asthma is not yet curable, the intake of vital mushrooms can positively influence the course of the disease.

Asthmatics suffer from a permanent inflammation of the bronchial mucosa. The mucosa of the bronchioles swells and produces an excess of viscous mucus. As a result, the airways narrow. During an acute asthma attack, the muscles in the bronchial wall also tense up. This primarily disturbs exhalation and causes the whistling exhalation (“wheezing”) typical of asthmatics with simultaneous shortness of breath.

An acute asthma attack and the symptoms that accompany it can last for a few seconds, but in severe cases it can last for several hours or, rarely, even for days. If asthma is not adequately treated, there may be recurrent coughing, chest tightness and shortness of breath between attacks.

There are two main types of asthma: allergic (or extrinsic) asthma and non-allergic (or intrinsic) asthma. Allergic asthma is triggered by allergens such as pollen, animal dander or dust mites. The asthmatic’s immune system fights these allergens, which are actually harmless to the body. This form of asthma often occurs in combination with hay fever and neurodermatitis. Especially children suffer from this form of asthma.

30 to 50% of adult asthmatics develop non-allergic asthma. It is often triggered by a respiratory infection. The inflammation caused by the infection makes the airways more sensitive to other irritants. In addition, mixed forms are also possible. The majority of asthmatics suffer from such mixed forms, which usually develop from the allergic form.

Asthma is not yet considered curable. However, targeted measures can prevent acute attacks and prevent long-term damage to the lungs and heart. The triggering substances and irritants should be avoided as much as possible. Accompanying measures such as giving up smoking, combating excess weight, regular exercise, breathing and relaxation exercises, and physiotherapy have a positive effect on the course of the disease.

In addition to the drugs prescribed in conventional asthma therapy, medicinal mushrooms can also be used concomitantly. While asthma sprays bring rapid relaxation and relief of the symptoms of the disease, which is essential especially in an acute attack, the so-called mycotherapy starts at the root of the problem. Therefore, vital mushrooms are particularly recommended for the accompanying, long-term treatment of asthma disease.

The vital mushroom Reishi is particularly suitable for the prevention of further asthma attacks.

When taken regularly, it helps strengthen the entire body and especially the lungs. In addition, its immune-boosting properties can reduce overall susceptibility to infections and allergies.

Asthma attacks are often triggered not only by infections or allergens, but also by physical or psychological stress. Here, the intake of the vital mushroom Cordyceps can be helpful. Due to its balancing effect, it positively influences the overall physical and mental condition and effectively strengthens the lungs.

To get a better idea of the causes of asthma, it is advisable to talk to an experienced therapist. Ideally, this can also immediately recommend the suitable vital mushrooms.
