  • Asbestosis Remedies

    | Modified: Jun 18, 2014
    Asbestosis may not become symptomatic for decades after exposure to asbestos. This may have been in the mining industry but also in construction, as asbestos was long used as a flame-retardant until the dangers the mineral fiber can present to our health, including asbestosis and lung cancer as well, became clear.

    Symptoms of asbestosis include breathing issues and a tightness in the chest, persistent cough, and a loss of lung capacity.

    Natural Cures: Stopping smoking is critical. Physical therapy may also help. Supplemental oxygen may be advised, and a nebulized therapy to reduce secretion buildup or otherwise repair lung tissue may help.
