Asthma is a common chronic lung disease which causes coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. The coughing usually occurs at night or in the morning.  Asthma can affect people of any age but usually starts during childhood.  Recent studies show that premature babies are more likely to suffer from asthma than full term babies but they usually grow out of it during childhood.

Asthma is caused when the bronchi, the narrow tubes which carry air in and out of the lungs, become inflamed and sensitive.  The muscles around them become tightened making it difficult for the sufferer to breathe.  There is also an increase in the production of mucus in the lining of the bronchi. Mucus is a thick, sticky substance which narrows the airways and makes breathing even more difficult. These symptoms can vary in severity from person to person.  Sometimes the symptoms are mild and soon go away after taking medication, but it is important to catch the symptoms early to avoid them worsening. Although asthma is incurable, it is treatable for most sufferers for most of the time.  Occasionally, however, asthmatics may have an `asthma attack` and require hospital treatment.  These attacks can be extremely frightening as the sufferer struggles to breathe, unable to call for help.  A minority of asthma attacks are fatal so asthma attacks need to be taken very seriously.

These attacks are caused by a `trigger` or irritant.  Asthmatics need to take an active role in managing their asthma by taking care to use their medication as prescribed and also to avoid any triggers known to irritate their lungs, such as cigarette smoke, bed bugs, dust mites, pollen and animal fur.

About 5% of asthmatics are unfortunate enough to suffer from what can be called `severe asthma`.  Most Asthma sufferers will, from time to time, suffer very severe and even life threatening symptoms.  However, with the right medical care and by identifying the triggers, most people in this category will soon get back to leading normal lives again.  Only a minority of asthma sufferers will be diagnosed as having severe asthma. These are people who, despite receiving medication, still continue to suffer severe attacks and life threatening symptoms.  This may be due to a variety of reasons, including incorrect medication or medications not being used properly, other, undiagnosed, medical conditions and triggers the patient is unaware of or unable or unwilling to avoid.

With today's medical knowledge most asthma sufferers are able to live normal happy lives so long as they actively manage their condition and take care to avoid any triggers which may spark an attack. If you'd like to find our more information about asthma there are some very good charities. For example in the US there's the American Asthma Foundation and the UK Asthma UK.


Asthma and mulberry silk-filled duvets from Silk Bedding Direct Using hypoallergenic bedding such as a mulberry silk duvet lowers the risk of the onset of asthma symptoms.  Although there are artificial alternatives mulberry silk is the only 100% natural hypoallergenic duvet fill.  In various countries around the world silk duvets are sometimes called silk quilts or silk comforters, they all have the same meaning.  Down and wool duvets both contain dust mites, bed bugs and other microscopic life. 

Besides helping asthma sufferers SBD hypoallergenic mulberry silk-filled duvets have many other health and beauty benefits and are the most comfortable and luxurious type of bedding.

Silk Bedding Direct mulberry silk-filled bedding could help people with other types of respiratory conditions and allergies too.  Exposure to bed bugs and microscopic life found in nearly all other types of bed linen means symptoms can be worsened due to allergic reaction or other forms of hypersensitivity. To avoid these, natural duvets that are hypoallergenic are a very good choice.
