The Book, Air and Breathing
The book helps you understand the atmosphere, climate change, air quality
issues, normal breathing and the causes of breathing disorders. You will find
detailed information about airborne infection, air quality and airborne hazards
at home. Problems of the nose, ear and throat are discussed. Airborne allergy
and food allergy causes are explained. The mechanisms of asthma are discussed
and drug treatments reviewed. A chapter on respiratory infections describes
viral and bacterial causes of upper respiratory disease and lung diseases. A
special section on fungal diseases is included.
Air pollution and airborne outdoor causes of lung disease are also
discussed with advice about improving both indoor and outdoor air quality.
Asthma is a prototype of airway disease, often associated with nose and throat
symptoms. Asthma sometimes merges with chronic lung disease that involves both
inflammatory changes in bronchi and inflammatory changes in alveoli that involve
scarring and loss of gas exchange capacity.
The three basic treatment choices for airway diseases are:
- Remove the causes of disease
- Treat the effects of the disease
- Alter the host to be more tolerate of the causes
The large issues of air quality are survival issues for humans and all other
living creatures on the planet.

The Author Stephen J. Gislason MD.
Not all respiratory diseases are caused by airborne pathogens. If asthma,
bronchitis and/or nose sinus congestion is chronic or attacks occur frequently
in all seasons and are not related to airborne exposure, then consider delayed
pattern food allergy as the cause and do diet revision using the Alpha Nutrition
