Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that causes your airways to get inflamed and narrow and makes breathing difficult. Coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness are classic asthma symptoms. Severe asthma can make it hard to talk or be active.1
5.4 million people in the UK are currently receiving treatment for asthma. The UK still has some of the highest rates in Europe and on average there are three children with asthma in every classroom in the UK.3 So if you or your child suffers from asthma, you are certainly not alone!
Asthma is an autoimmune disorder, and researchers accept that working with the immune system, or “immunomodulation” is the key to the successful treatment of asthma.4 Asthma can be part of the “allergic march” which may also include eczema, food allergies, hay fever and rhinitis.5
