The book, Air and Breathing helps you understand the atmosphere, climate change, air quality issues, normal breathing and the causes of breathing disorders.  You will find detailed information about airborne infection, air quality and airborne hazards at home. Problems of the nose, ear and throat are discussed. Airborne allergy and food allergy causes are explained. The mechanisms of asthma are discussed and drug treatments reviewed. A chapter on respiratory infections describes viral and bacterial causes of upper respiratory disease and lung diseases. A special section on fungal diseases is included.

Air pollution and airborne outdoor causes of lung disease are also discussed with advice about improving both indoor and outdoor air quality. Asthma is a prototype of airway disease, often associated with nose and throat symptoms. Asthma sometimes merges with chronic lung disease that involves both inflammatory changes in bronchi and inflammatory changes in alveoli that involve scarring and loss of gas exchange capacity.

The three basic treatment choices for airway diseases are:

  • Remove the causes of disease
  • Treat the effects of the disease
  • Alter the host to be more tolerate of the causes
  • The large issues of air quality are survival issues for humans and all other living creatures on the planet. An up to date view of climate change and responsible action is included in this book.

    Not all respiratory diseases are caused by airborne pathogens. If asthma, bronchitis and/or nose sinus congestion is chronic or attacks occur frequently in all seasons and are not related to airborne exposure, then consider delayed pattern food allergy as the cause and do diet revision using the Alpha Nutrition  Program.  You can order a starter pack which included the book, Air and Breathing, the Alpha Nutrition Program and a small jar of Alpha ENF for evaluation.
