Potential Indication: Asthma/COPD
Asthma is a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways. Asthma causes recurring periods of wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing. Asthma affects people of all ages, but it most often starts during childhood. In the United States, more than 25 million people are known to have asthma and about 7 million of these people are children.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, is a progressive disease that makes it difficult to breathe. COPD can cause coughing that produces large amounts of mucus, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and other symptoms. Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of COPD. Long term exposure to other irritants—such as air pollution, chemical fumes, or dust—also may contribute to COPD.
