A Body in Balance

Asthma is a chronic disorder of the lungs in which inflamed airways are not able to constrict. Bronchitis is the inflammation of all or part of the bronchial tree. Tuberculosis, in most forms of the disease bacillus spreads slowly and widely through out the lungs.

Diseases

Did you know that approximately, 1500 miles of airways are present in human lungs?

Asthma can be cured with inhalers that use drugs to open up the breathing passageways. Bronchitis can be cured with antibiotics and breathing therapies to try and strengthen your lungs. With tuberculosis even though you can try antibiotics it usually resists it, so because it's drug resistant they try different antibiotics that you have to take for up to 6-9 months. The best thing you can do to prevent it is take the vaccine.
