World Asthma Day (May 3rd, 2022) – to raise awareness, care and support for those affected by asthma. Whilst the primary focus is supporting the person with asthma, support may also extend to family, friends and caregivers.
Organized by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA), a World Health Organization collaborative organization founded in 1993. WAD is held each May to raise awareness of Asthma worldwide.
The aim of the day is raising awareness of asthma and how it affects sufferers. The day falls on the first Tuesday in May each year and aims to raise support for sufferers and their families. World Asthma Day was launched in conjunction with the first World Asthma Meeting in Barcelona, and has grown to become the biggest international asthma event.
Asthma is a chronic lung disease which causes breathing difficulties and affects sufferers to varying degrees, asthma is caused by swelling and inflammation of the bronchial tubes, sometimes in reaction to allergens, exercise, stress or changes in temperature. Asthma is not usually curable but can be controlled to certain extents, depending on how it affects the sufferer. If asthma is controlled then sufferers can live relatively normal lives, although some triggers may have to be avoided.
The ultimate goal is to understand the root cause of Severe Asthma (already considered a pandemic by many) while we aim for a cure. By banding together with other Asthmatics, including those that care about Asthmatics and clinicians that treat, we can defeat Asthma and we can do so now.
Why this Matters:
- Asthma is not one disease but many and the causes underlying its development and manifestations are many including environmental issues
- Asthma has reached pandemic levels around the globe
- Asthma is a chronic lung disease that affects over 300 million worldwide
- The projected rate will reach 400 million by 2025
- Environmental exposures have been proven to play a significant role in the development of asthma and as triggers
- Asthma is believed to be determined by a complicated set of one’s own genetics and environmental exposures including a multitude of toxic chemicals and the overuse of antibiotics
- In the U.S., African Americans are almost three times more likely to die from asthma-related causes than the white population
Australia reported the highest rate of doctor diagnosed, clinical/treated asthma, and wheezing
- Defining asthma remains an ongoing challenge and innovative methods are needed to identify, diagnose, and accurately classify asthma at an early stage to most effectively implement optimal management and reduce the health burden attributable to asthma
Lung Disease Treatment
we offer a cellular approach to asthma and lung conditions. Our approach treats Lung conditions as the complex by assists the body’s own ability to both correct the misbehaving component of their lung system, and to repair the lungs’ damaged tissue.
Cellular therapy have been studied in great depth for their value in treating a number of health conditions, including asthma. Several studies have been conducted on cells and their effects on asthma. To reduce inflammation, reversed signs of airway remodeling and completely normalized airway/lung fibrosis and airway hyperresponsiveness
The cells will divide to replace old or damaged lung cells, and contribute to overall lung health. They will migrate to the misbehaving lung components and the damaged tissue, and fuse with the problematic tissues and transform into a healthier, properly-functioning iterations of that tissue.
