Dr Oz: Asthma Versus Common Cold
When the temperature drops, your chances of catching a cold go up, but so do your chances of having an asthma attack. But would you be able to tell the difference? With asthma, your lungs can’t get enough air, causing your to breathe faster. There are “balls of air” inside the lungs that are surrounded by blood vessels. The tubes that bring oxygen in are large and round, but can constrict during an asthma attack. Remedies like meditation and relaxation can help make breathing easier again, and inhalers use medicine to achieve the same effect.
