Many years have passed since the appearance of the concept of “asthma”. And all these years that only for her treatment was not offered. And drugs, and acupuncture, pressure chambers, and dirt. But the most amazing method is the transplantation of adrenal cells from newborn piglets! It seemed that nothing could surprise you in the treatment of asthma. But it wasn’t like that! Several eccentric scientists from New Orleans decided to investigate the effect of psychedelic drugs on the course of asthma. The results of these “innovative” studies were the conclusions that the use of such drugs can have an anti-inflammatory effect. It is claimed that the use of such drugs in doses that do not have a significant effect on the psyche will be very effective in the treatment of asthma. True, this study has so far only been carried out on mice. And it is not clear what result should be expected from people. It was published on the website of the American Journal of Cellular and Molecular Biology. Apparently, the authors did not dare to send the article to a printed journal. Probably not to get shnobel prize.

But, on the other hand, if you follow the thesis that “all diseases are from the head, and only syphilis is from pleasure”, one can go even further.

Asthma from ragweed

Asthma from ragweed is common in the south. And just in many green areas of southern Russia, for example, in the Krasnodar Territory, local ragweed thickets have captured large areas and reach a meter height. Asthma from ragweed develops through an allergy to this plant. It is known that the flowering of ragweed begins at the end of July and ends with the first frosts, which means that many Mariupol residents will experience allergic inflammation for a long time to come. Each ragweed plant produces about a billion pollen grains that travel with the wind and can travel over 400 kilometers.

Allergists consider ragweed pollen to be one of the most aggressive allergens, which, along with an allergic reaction, can also cause asthma. The reaction to pollen is manifested by the appearance of a runny nose, tearing, itching and redness of the eyes, sore throat, itchy skin, coughing or wheezing, post- nosal syndrome (discharge from the nose into the throat). Ambrosia most strongly provokes asthma attacks. Remember, ragweed asthma is common in the south . Winter will pass quickly, and you need to prepare for the flowering season, stocking up on antiallergic drugs. Or maybe it’s all over the place ? No ragweed = asthma from ragweed disappeared.
