In bronchial asthma, the patient has periodic attacks of suffocation, coughing, wheezing. In addition to atopic and infectious-allergic bronchial asthma, doctors distinguish neuropsychological asthma. Scientists have documented a range of stressful situations that have been associated with asthma symptoms: examinations, public speaking, family conflict, national disasters, and violence. Stress affects the physical condition of a person, which makes it impossible to control the course of the disease.
An important role in the pathogenesis of bronchial asthma is played by the autonomic nervous system since its receptors are abundant in the respiratory tract. When the receptors of the upper respiratory tract are irritated, a spasm of the bronchioles occurs and the person is worried about coughing.
Asthma on a nervous basis is characterized by the occurrence of asthma attacks against the background of strong nervous experiences, both positive and negative. Psychogenic asthma first makes itself felt when a person experiences a strong nervous shock. In the future, each stressful situation can cause shortness of breath, and difficulties arise precisely at the time of exhalation.
Medication can relieve symptoms, but not cure the disease! In our Center for Computer Biofeedback of the DMC Clinic, we carry out effective treatment of psychogenic bronchial asthma in children from 6 years of age and adolescents with the help of computer training for diaphragmatic relaxation breathing. As a result, the frequency and severity of attacks decreases, as well as the drug load on the body.
