from the manufacturer

All about Asthma: Stop Suffering and Start Living is an astute examination of a disease that persists despite the best efforts of medical science. Dr. Polk, an expert with over 40 years of experience treating asthma and allergic diseases, discusses important new techniques and equipment for identifying asthma and cost-effective medicines for prevention and treatment. He notes that drug companies are also evaluating new chemicals and devices for prevention and treatment of episodes of asthma. According to the author, specialists are broadening their horizons by paying closer attention to inflammation of the lungs as a prime target for asthma management. All about Asthma will be an invaluable resource that will help patients and their families understand and control this disease.

Of all the bodys unconscious functions--those that occur whether we think about them or not--breathing is the one were most aware of, the one we feel we have the most control over. Thats why asthma, which makes breathing increasingly difficult by trapping air in the lungs, is one of the most terrifying diseases. And its increasingly deadly, claiming more than 5, 000 lives a year. Irwin Polk believes that the rise in deaths comes, in part, from an overuse of drugs to manage the disease and an underuse of breathing exercises to help release trapped air. All About Asthma lives up to its title: it explains how air gets trapped in lungs, why it happens (allergies, environmental pollutants, exercise, stress), and all the strategies known to alleviate it, including breathing exercises.
