Myths of Asthma
There are many myths that developed in the community related to asthma. Some of them can indeed be explained with common sense, although many do not even make sense.
The first myth is that going to the sea could cure asthma. The myth, there is some true in it because the sea air is cleaner than the air in urban areas. The lack of pollution makes a sea breeze good for people with asthma.
Actually the air in the mountains is clean as well, but the weather tends to cold. In some patients with asthma, the weather is too cold can trigger an attack so that the sea more often 'myth-made' than the mountains.
The second myth is that swimming can cure asthma. Related to this, not just swimming, all sports that can be done slowly and gradually basically good for asthma.
The third myth is that asthma is a hereditary disease. Although not openly justify it, it was revealed that 30-40 percent of asthma is triggered by hereditary factors. There are people who feel their parents have no history of asthma. But it could be any of her grandparents who have asthma, or even actually own parents have. It's just that the symptoms did not appear because there is no trigger.
Other myths are of course many, perhaps even growing. Accordingly, the most important thing in dealing with these myths is to examine the evidence. For a growing paradigm in the health sector today is evidence based (based on the evidence). Maybe there really healed that way. But if it happens only 1 in 100, then the myth could not be accounted for.
