  • Asthma pill 'promising' for people with severe symptoms

     

     

    An experimental pill could help adults with severe asthma, an early study in the Lancet Respiratory Medicine journal suggests.In the small trial, patients who were given the drug, known as Fevipiprant, had less inflammation in their airways.And some patients with uncontrolled asthma felt their symptoms improved.Charity Asthma UK said the research showed "massive promise and should be greeted with cautious optimism".More than five million people in the UK have asthma, a long-term condition that affects the airways in the lungs and can cause a cough, wheezing and breathlessness.For most people the right treatment - for example, inhalers - can help control it, but some people have more persistent symptoms.

    'Less wheezy'

    And flare-ups can be life-threatening. According to Asthma UK, 1,216 people died from asthma in 2014.In this study, scientists at the University of Leicester looked at 60 patients who had severe asthma despite using steroid inhalers and being seen regularly by specialists.Half the group were given the Fevipiprant pill for three months on top of their usual medications and the other half continued to take their normal medication as well as a placebo pill.Researchers found that while patients took Fevipiprant, they had fewer inflammatory blood cells in their phlegm and airways - which can be key signs of asthma.Gaye Stokes, who has had severe asthma for 16 years, said: "I knew straight away that I had been given the drug.

    "I felt like a completely different person. I had more get up and go, I was less wheezy and for the first time in years, I felt really, really well."The 54-year-old added that once she stopped taking the drug her asthma deteriorated again.

    But researchers say this is still an early proof-of-concept study and larger, long-term trials will be needed to see if the pill can help patients in everyday life.Meanwhile, Dr Samantha Walker at Asthma UK said: "This research shows massive promise and should be greeted with cautious optimism.

    "The possibility of taking a pill instead of using an inhaler will be a very welcome one, particularly as this study focused on people who develop the condition in later life, some of whom we know can struggle with the dexterity required to use an inhaler.

    "More research is needed and we're a long way off seeing a pill for asthma being made available over the pharmacy counter, but it's an exciting development."Prof Stephen Durham, a lung specialist at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London, said: "Prof Chris Brightling's group in Leicester provide compelling evidence that the novel tablet treatment has the ability to reduce asthmatic inflammation, increase lung function and improve asthma control in this severe group.

    "The data strongly support further studies to see whether Fevipiprant may also reduce the frequency of asthma attacks, avoid steroid tablet side effects and reduce NHS costs in the management of these severely ill patients."

  • Boil Bananas Before Bed, Drink the Liquid and You Will Not Believe What Happens to Your Sleep

    We’ve all had those restless nights of tossing and turning, staring at the ceiling, unable to get more than couple hours of shuteye. Irregular sleeping patterns or even insomnia can stem from several different things like depression, stress and anxiety. Certain medications can also cause insomnia.

    Banana Tea For Deep Sleep

    This organic, banana-infused sleep remedy works wonders — and it tastes great too. How does it work? Bananas, especially the peels, are loaded with potassium and magnesium. While magnesium helps prevent sleep disturbances, both magnesium and potassium work together to help relax muscles. In fact, magnesium is the most powerful relaxation mineral known to man!

    Please note that bananas which are not organic, are loaded with harmful pesticides, and since we encourage you to eat the boiled peel, it must be chemical-free.

    This tea takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and can be enjoyed every night before bed.

    Ingredients

    • 1 organic banana
    • 1 small pot of water
    • a dash of cinnamon (optional)

    All you need to do is cut off both ends of the banana and place it, peel and all, into boiling water. Boil it for around 10 minutes. Using a colander, pour the water into a mug. If you’re feeling adventurous, sprinkle the cinnamon into the tea. Drink it one hour before bed time

    If you’re worried about being wasteful, you’ve clearly never had a boiled banana before! After the banana has been boiled, sprinkle some cinnamon over it. Eating the warm, gooey fruit and its peel along with the tea will increase its soothing effects, and it makes a yummy dessert!

    Why You Should Avoid Sleeping Pills

    Out of despair, many of us resort to sleeping pills and with almost half of the American population suffering from insomnia or poor sleep, it’s no wonder. But here’s the thing: sleeping pills cannot help you long-term. They provide a short-term fix.

    The majority of sleeping pills are a specific type of drug that induces and maintains sleep. They’re classified as something called sedative hypnotics. Among other sedative hypnotic drugs are benzodiazepines and barbiturates. Benzodiazepines, like Xanax and Valium, can be addictive and are used to treat anxiety disorders by increasing drowsiness. Barbiturates depress the central nervous system are used as anesthetics and sedatives.

    As with all drugs, there’s a list of side effects that accompany sleeping pills. Aside from the likeliness of them being habit-forming, they can cause the following:

    • Constipation
    • Dizziness
    • Difficulty focusing and remembering
    • Stomach pain
    • Weakness
    • Uncontrollable shaking
    • Parasomnias (Doing things without realizing it… Scary!)

    Sleeping pills also cause your breathing rhythm to slow down and significantly lighten. This means that if you’re already suffering from lung diseases like COPD or even asthma, these meds can be dangerous and even fatal.

    This Is How Sleep Deprivation Affects Your

    Body

    When your body doesn’t get enough rest, it suffers. Cognitive function your long and short-term memory is seriously affected. Processing even the simplest things seems challenging and your emotional responses to things become totally skewed. The scariest part is that sleep deprivationhas been linked to serious health problems including obesity, diabetes and cancer.
