Asthma is a long-term lung condition in which a person’s airways become inflamed, narrow, swells and produces extra mucus, which makes it difficult to breathe. People with asthma have sensitive airways in their lungs which react to triggers, causing a ‘flare-up’.
In a flare-up, the muscles around the airway squeeze tight, the airways swell and become narrow and there is more mucus. This makes it harder to breathe. Learn more about holistic ways of dealing with asthma in our Healing Portal.
