Myth: Asthma is a psychological issue.

Asthma is inflammation and constriction within the lungs. The constriction begins in the lungs and that in its self can trigger emotional stress which aggravates the situation. As emotions have the ability to magnify the intensity of an attack those who suffer with asthma may benefit from deep breathing exercises that teach them to gain control over their asthma.

Myth: Children will grow out of Asthma

Asthma is a life long chronic condition of hyperrespsonsiveness within the lungs. As a child grows their asthma may improve or worsen. Even if a child seems like they are free of asthma they will always have over sensitive lungs. Asthma often alters due to environment, life style and climate.

Myth: Exercise will worsen Asthma

Exercise is essential for everybody especially an Asthmatic. The key is finding the right exercise that works best for the individual. With proper medication Asthmatic's can do just about anything they want to do. Asthma can be triggered by exercise so it is essential to use the correct medication and understand how it works. Always consult with your doctor your situation. With exercise it is essential to listen to your body, if you feel you asthma worsening stop and take the necessary precautions.

Myth: Moving to a new location will cure Asthma

If you move far away you may feel relief from allergies that induce your asthma but there will be new issues in the new environment. Usually, your home environment; house and garden will influence your asthma in a greater sense than the geographical area. This being the case you have the ability to make adjustments to your immediate environment that will help your asthma, for example, perhaps certain flowers in your garden trigger an asthmatic response, pull them out and replace them with a plant that agrees with you.

Myth: Asthma is the same for everyone

Asthma is not the same for everyone. Something that will trigger an asthmatic response for one person may no even affect another person. Medication that will help one person may not help another.

Myth: Some pets are better for Asthmatics

The truth is Asthmatics are allergic to the pet's dander, saliva and urine. Even if a pet doesn't shed much the particles of dander or flaky dead skin will get into the air and attach themselves to dust particles. Even if you don't allow the pets inside much their dander can live for months in furniture and carpets.
