Asthma is a condition where the lungs get inflamed and restrict breathing.

Almost all people suffering from this condition have similar symptoms like wheezing, coughing, feelings of pain or pressure in the chest and shortness of breath. Symptoms become more acute when an asthma attack is imminent and a higher sensitively to airborne irritants causes as person a lot of stress, such as difficulty in talking, pale skin and lips, and feelings of panic, fear and anxiety are added compounded. Yet, even though generally these symptoms are characteristic for almost all asthmatics, there are more types of asthma which can be experienced.

Depending on the time of day, this condition can be triggered by a number of factors, revealing one of five different forms of asthma. Allergic asthma is one of the most common types. This is when allergies and asthma go hand in hand, causing an attack whenever the individual comes in contact with allergens they are sensitive to. In addition the common symptoms of asthma are also added those of allergy rhinitis, such as runny and swollen nose, excessive mucus, weepy eyes and continuous sneezing.

Another frequent type of asthma is exercise-induced asthma. This type of ailment is mainly triggered by physical exercise. You may notice that attacks occur during high intensity cardiovascular exercise such as running, boxing, cycling or other physical exertion such as walking up stairs too quickly. If this occurs, the sufferer is likely to be suffering from exercise-induced asthma. In order to be able to breath normally when exercising you may need to get an inhaler and use it before actually starting your daily exercise routine. (Please speak to your medical practitioner for more appropriate advice).

There is also cough-variant asthma that is triggered by extremely powerful coughing, which will simply not stop. There are many factors which can cause the extreme cough, such as rhinitis, sinusitis or heartburn. So, if you cough a lot and feel like you are choking during the episode of excessive coughing, make sure you visit a doctor.

Occupational and night-time asthma are the last two types. They occur only during particular times of the day (the working hours in case of the occupational asthma and between sunset and sunrise for nighttime asthma). If asthma attacks are getting more acute in these periods then you are suffering of one of these two types of conditions.

No matter which type of asthma you (think) you or a loved one might have, it is important to go to the doctor for an accurate diagnosis which will help you to start the appropriate treatment for right type of asthma.

Salt Lamps assist Asthma by helping to clear the air of dust and airborne irritants by causing the dust to fall to the floor instead of being airborne. This way the airborne toxins are not being breathed in and contributing to the problem.

Salt Lamps do not cure Asthma, they simply assist the improvement of air quality to minimise exposure to dust and airborne debris.

Thanks for this article and I like the fact that you do point out salt lamps do not cure asthma and they simple assist the improvement of air quality. Having a young son who has asthma and the rest of us in the family with seasonal and dust allergies, we use a salt lamp. I cannot say definitely if it has helped or not (with the asthma and allergies as there are so many factors that contribute) but i love using a salt lamp so it can only be beneficial (ie. no harm is caused by using one). The fact that salt lamps look amazing, give off beautiful light, lift my spirits, help relax me and can assist in the improvement of air quality are the main reasons I use one and hope to have more in my house over time.

I suffered from exercise-induced asthma as a child, but I have relatives that battle with asthma on a daily basis. Every little bit helps, a non invasive, natural aid that can ease or assist any ailment is definitely a keeper in my books.

I wish more people knew about Salt Lamps, I pointed one out to a friend the other day whilst shopping and said “I have one of those”, she replied, “that crystal looking thing, what is it?”. Ha.

My Mum has cough variant asthma which makes her miserable. I hadn’t thought of a salt lamp to help with this but it’s certainly worth mentioning it to her. She gave up smoking about 2 years ago and this has helped, but each year when the weather turns or she gets a bit run down she has to get inhalers from the doctors. It’d be great if a salt lamp could make life easier for her.

My daughter and I both suffer with asthma. It can get really bad for my daughter some days as she has exercised asthma and gets it after a lot of physical exertion. she has a salt lamp in her room that she loves.

For me, however, my time of suffering is usually in the night air or at night when I am in my bed. I cough and I wheeze a lot and have trouble sleeping. Since having my salt lamp I have less coughing and I have a much more restful sleep than before I got it. I know it must be doing something good for me so I am going to let my salt lamp light for as long as it can!
