CONDITIONS WE CAN HELP WITH...
AsthmaAsthma is a common respiratory condition in which the airways - the small tubes in the lungs that carry air to and from the lungs - become inflamed causing them to narrow and swell making breathing difficult and laboured. Statistics show that as many as 5.4 million people in the United Kingdom suffer from the condition with symptoms including: coughing, wheezing and a build up of mucus. Asthma is considered to be an allergic condition with triggers including; toxic chemicals, smoking and pollution, stress or emotional upset, exercise, infection, cold air and food allergies. An asthma attack occurs when the airways become inflamed and swollen making breathing very difficult, medication is needed straight away.
