What to look for
Wheezing usually occurs in hayfever sufferers, respiratory
infections, bronchitis or emphysema
and asthma. Less commonly people who suffer cystic fibrosis will
wheeze. You should see a regular doctor if you suffer from wheezing.
If you are breathing through bronchial
passages that are narrow or constricted due to a build up of mucus, you may experience
difficulties and are likely to make whistling sounds which are a characteristic of
wheezing. Because you are having difficulties in breathing, you may become worried and
this makes your breathing worse.
You must see a conventional medical doctor
to determine the cause of your wheezing and receive treatment for it.
Many natural complementary therapies for
asthma may be effective for wheezing. Chinese medicine, reflexology, and herbal therapies
