Common Breathing Problems: Holistic Treatments

Common Breathing Issues

Breathing difficulty or problem is a relatively broad term used to refer to any number of issues with breathing. Typically such breathing difficulties are characterized by discomfort when breathing and the general feeling of not being able to intake a complete breath. Individuals experiencing breathing problems often feel as if they cannot take in enough air.

Common breathing problems include asthma, the inflammation and narrowing the airways; pneumonia, obstruction of the air passageways caused by infection; and croup, a respiratory issue initiated by viral infection and characterized by its recognizable “barking” cough. Additional breathing problems include pulmonary embolism, a blockage in one of the main arteries headed to the lungs; pulmonary hypertension, or high blood pressure that disturbs the natural processing of the lungs; epiglottitis, selling in the windpipe; and hiatal hernia, a protrusion of the stomach affecting the diaphragm and chest.
