Steam Therapy for Asthma

A friend's daughter has been suffering from asthma for years. About two months ago, she had an attack and was confined at the hospital for days. I can just imagine how hard it was for the family. I also had an aunt, my mom's cousin, who suffered from asthma. She's been in and out of the hospital, and their family spent a lot of money. She passed away eight years ago leaving her two girls. Asthma is a chronic condition involving the respiratory system in which the airway occasionally constricts, becomes inflamed, and is lined with excessive amounts of mucus, often in response to one or more triggers. It is a disease that results in breathing difficulties because of the inflammation of the breathing tubes in the lungs.

Aside from the inhaled medications and other preventive drugs, steam shower is believed to be an effective treatment for sinus conditions and asthma. According to some studies, steam showers are one of the best ways to remove products of inflammation such as mucus and remove irritants from the lungs. If someone in your family has asthma, it would be best to upgrade your bathroom with shower stalls or enclosed baths. This is not very expensive and it is the best way to retain steam while showering. That way, you are in less danger of scalding and getting dry skin. The steam is not wasted because of the enclosure and it will be easier for the person to cough it out and would also help reduce the amount of smooth muscle that blocks air passages.

You can get these jetted steam showers from a great selection of styles and sizes that will match your home at affordable prices. Steam therapy has many benefits to the body and steam showers increase blood circulation. A steam bath is not only therapeutic, it is also a great way to relax after having a long day.

I used to suffer from chronic colds. It seemed that every weather change would set me off. My Dr. recommended using steam treatments. I looked up how to do this and found these Steam Showers. It looked like a big investment would incur, but it was really affordable. I use my shower daily and I have yet to get a single cold in the last 8 months. I thought I had COPD or something. Thank god I didn't!
