Cryotherapy for Bronchial Asthma in Bucks County PA
According to the World Health Organization, bronchial asthma in the U.S. has increased by over 60% since the early 1980s. Around 25 million Americans suffer from it.
Asthma can severely restrict physical activity and sleeping, and prevent sufferers from living a normal, healthy life. While medications to relieve some of the worst symptoms of asthma have improved, there are natural asthma treatments available too.
Whole body cryotherapy is an effective natural treatment for asthma available at the Cryo Spa Natural Health Centre in Bucks County PA.
What is bronchial asthma?
Bronchial asthma (or simply ‘asthma’) is a chronic inflammatory lung disorder resulting from the spasmodic contraction of the bronchial muscles. This causes periodic “attacks” of coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness.
It may be triggered by many things, including the following:
- Infections (colds, flu, etc.)
- Allergens such as food, pollen, mold, dust mites
- Air pollution
- Drugs (such as aspirin and NSAIDs)
- Some food additives
- Stress or anxiety
- Perfumes and fragrances
Treating bronchial asthma with cryotherapy
“The positive effect of whole body cryotherapy on bronchial asthma (improvement in well being, increase in performance) is obviously rooted in its broad spectrum of effects. It generally exerts a respiration stimulating effect.”
From “Power from the cold” by Prof. Dr. sc. med. Winfried Papenfub
A study of 28 asthmatics found that, after a winter walk, constriction of the airways occurred in 12 individuals. However, after whole body cryotherapy, 9 of them improved their condition to starting levels.
This is a typical result from a session of whole body cryotherapy. The precise reasons why cryotherapy eases the symptoms of asthma sufferers and stimulates the respiratory system are not known, but the bronchial tubes become more dilated and the muscles relax, generally improving breathing capacity.
This means that patients usually emerge from the cryosauna feeling rejuvenated and with a greater sense of wellbeing from its wide spectrum of benefits.
Working in combination with their existing therapies, many people find that cryotherapy is an effective natural asthma therapy that may reduce their need for medication.
