The Simple & Effective Drug-Free Way To Deal With Asthmas (and No, It’s Not Oxygen)

Being an asthmatic can be quite frustrating. You want to take part in certain activities, like some vigorous exercises, but you often can’t because of your condition.

This oftentimes debilitating disease inflames your airways causing it to swell and restrict the flow of air from your lungs. There are, of course, medications that can provide relief, but long-term drug use is never easy on your body.

There is a solution that’s fairly new on the market and is becoming popular among pharmaceuticals and asthma patients.

It comes in the form of an air pressure device that helps to relieve bronchial constriction and mucus buildup.

In case you haven’t guessed already, this tool is a drug-free solution! This is great news, especially for the 8% of the US and Canada populations who suffer from the chronic respiratory condition.

This is good news not just because it will keep synthetic chemicals out of your body, but also because the cost of medication is ridiculous these days. It would seem that you would have to start growing money trees in your yard the way these prices are rising!

But let’s get back to this innovative air pressure device and have a look at some of the features that make it so special:

  • Handheld — Though it’s a little bigger than an albuterol or any other similar asthma inhaler, the air pressure device is small and portable.

It may not fit into your pocket comfortably, but it most certainly can fit into a handbag!

  • Easy to use — This device is as easy to use as blowing a breath of air… literally! All that’s needed is for you to put it in your mouth (like you’d do with the inhaler) and blow in it.

It’s quite interesting that blowing air into a device (exhaling) works to clear mucus from your lungs. The trick is in the vibration that takes place as you blow.

  • Works fast — unlike some drugs that you have to wait a bit to kick in, and even oxygen (which you sometimes have to sit for a few hours before feeling better), the air pressure device starts working as fast as the first 5 minutes.

This is because of its Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure (OPEP) technology that goes straight to the heart of the matter (mucus) and deals with it as you begin blowing.

Now, all that I said above could simply be me expelling my own hot air about the product, so why not try it for yourself and see?
