Which body part or function is involved in Chronic Coughs and Lung Diseases?
Coughing is a normal and routine body function or reflex reaction of your respiratory system that clears your throat of foreign irritants and mucus. The respiratory system includes airways, lungs, and muscles that help in respiration, it operates the major breathing function of your body. The airways are like pathways to your lungs where gaseous exchange takes place in simple words oxygen is absorbed in the blood and carbon dioxide is removed, which is only possible due to exhale and inhale which is done by increasing and decreasing pressure in the lungs with the help of muscles.
The respiratory system helps in the important function of the body by breathing, maintaining the condition of inhaled air, maintaining oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in our body by respiration.
The respiratory system maintains its intake of air, by changing temperature, protects our lungs from harmful irritants, and for the removal of unwanted substance and reduces inner friction by producing mucous which is later removed by coughing when produced in large quantity due to any underlying condition body induces coughs to get rid of extra mucous.
The parts of the respiratory system include the nose and mouth, sinuses, pharynx, trachea, bronchial tubes, and lastly lungs. Each organ of the system has its functions as when the airways of the respiratory system become clogged with foreign particles, cough as a reflex reaction occurs that attempts to clear the throat and makes breathing easier.
What are the symptoms and effects of Chronic Coughs and Lung Diseases on the body?
The parameters for declaring a normal cough to chronic are different for adults and children. The cough would be called a chronic cough for adults if it lasts for 4 weeks while it is 8 weeks in children.
Chronic cough cause chest pain and vomiting blood while upsets your stomach which later becomes esophageal cancer. Any problem in the lungs that affect their normal function and proper working may lead to lung disease. Lung diseases are divided into three types based on their targeted area.
Types of Lung Disease
1. Lung Tissue Diseases:
In this type of lung disease, the structure of lung tissues is affected making the lungs unable to expand fully to take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. That is why people with this disease face difficulty in deep breathing. The diseases include Sarcoidosis and Pulmonary fibrosis.
2. Lung Circulation Diseases:
These lung diseases are caused due to the clotting and inflammation of blood vessels. As with lung tissue diseases, the ability of lungs to expand fully is also decreased in lung circulation diseases. Moreover, these diseases may affect normal heart functionality in a person. The example includes pulmonary hypertension.
3. Airway Lung Diseases:
Airway lung diseases are caused due to the narrowing of these airways or tubes that are involved in the exchange of gases including oxygen and others in the lungs and also transport them in and out of the lungs. Airway diseases include bronchiectasis, Asthma, and COPD that mainly affects the airways.
Lung and cough diseases are interconnected to each other. Lung diseases cause cough as the main symptom sometimes and vice versa. Asthma leads to inflammation in lung airways and causes cough as the main symptom. Asthma can be dangerous and make normal routine activities difficult. There are small airways present in the lungs, which filters and pass the oxygen from the air to the bloodstream. But when asthma occurs, the lining of your airways swell while the muscles become constricted leading to the filling of mucus in the airways that ultimately reduces the amount of air that can pass through them.
What changes in diet can help improve symptoms of Chronic Coughs and Lung Diseases?
In case of chronic cough, the use of honey is recommended. For the respiratory system, honey has a lot of healing properties as it possesses anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties that improve the duration and may also reduce the intensity of cough.
Drinking tea made with honey by adding one to two tablespoons of fresh lemon juice is very soothing. Also, drinking two tablespoons of honey in eight ounces of hot water daily helps clear the mucus and soothe the cough. This clears the throat, improves healing and also increases immunity by providing Vitamin C.
Changes in lifestyle which can help Chronic Coughs and Lung Diseases
Chough is different from other throat diseases as there are much more precautionary measures for it. You are unable to do hard work during chronic cough because if you did, your flow of blood will increase which causes a higher breathing rate. According to the clinical analysis, when you inhale fast, the dust particles enter the air irritates the muscles of the throat causing cough. So, avoid doing hard work and exercises as well as bodybuilding.
Possible alternative remedies for Chronic Coughs and Lung Diseases
The best remedy for chronic cough is to have a steamy shower because it helps to moisten upper airways and softens the mucus. Steam breaks out the mucus-filled in your chest cavity to heal your throat. If you are a patient of asthma and throat diseases stay in the hot shower with steam for at least 5 minutes. Moreover, the natural and herbal and dietary plants including lemon, ginger, eucalyptus, sage, and thyme also help to improve chronic cough as well as lung diseases.
