Drinking Coffee: Another Method to Treat Asthma?

Tuesday, August 13, 2013
Asthma is a respiratory condition that is narrowed because of hyperactivity to certain stimuli, which cause inflammation; constriction is temporary. In patients with asthma, airway constriction in response to stimuli that in normal lungs will not affect the respiratory tract. This narrowing can be triggered by various stimuli, such as pollen, dust, animal dander, smoke, cold air and exercise. But asthma can also occur in some people without specific allergies. The same reaction occurs when the person is exercising or being in cold weather. Stress and anxiety can also trigger the release of histamine and leukotrienes. The frequency and severity of asthma attacks varies. Some people more often free of symptoms and only experience shortness of breath attacks are short and mild, which happens from time to time. Other patients almost always have cough and wheezing (asthma) and had a great attack after suffering from a viral infection, exercise or after exposure to allergens or irritants. Crying or laughing hard can also cause the onset of symptoms. At the very severe attack, the patient became difficult to talk because of crowded very great. Confusion, lethargy (decreased consciousness state, where people like to sleep soundly, but can be aroused briefly and then promptly fell asleep again) and cyanosis (bluish skin looks) is a sign that the oxygen supply is limited and patients need immediate treatment. Although he has suffered severe attacks, the patient will usually recover completely.
In all types of asthma medication in the offer; beta-adrenergic receptor agonists (eg, albuterol, theophylline), we will see side effects that almost certainly we receive, walaubagaimanapun relative asthma can not be cured in the view of many doctors. This will result in patients using these drugs continuously. If you look at how these drugs work, all lead to a drug that works on all the beta-adrenergic receptors (eg adrenaline), or that it only works on beta2-adrenergic receptors (which are mainly found in the cells in the lungs) that widening of the airways by stimulating beta-adrenergic receptors.
This fact reminds me of coffee. Drinks which I think has the same behavior with asthma medications that I normally drink. I remember once when I wanted to sleep soundly like'm in to make coffee without cream / milk or energy drinks FitUp. Once in the second to remember this drink contains the same there is caffeine. Armed with that experience, last night I tried to stop my asthma medication that usually affects only 4-6 hours of it. Then I try to drink a cup of coffee, and the result is "HUP, DID IT!" shortness of breath that have been disturbing for days is gone! But it is still there as the air pressure in the chest cavity, and then I try to drink a cup of coffee again and tightness in the chest that is also missing! This experience shows that in fact the coffee is very effective to cure my breathlessness.
My experiment is certainly dangerous experiments are not so alone I recommend to people with other breathing difficulties. But it turns out opinions / experiment I also know that there is support and real doctor (not a doctor / researcher rich karbitan me hehehe). Dr. Menaldi Rasmin Sp P (K), and chairman pulmonologis continuing medical education-Faculty of medicine, the efficacy of caffeine can relax the muscle tone and strengthen the work of breathing which helps the lungs. Meanwhile, according to Marshall Plaut, MD, chair of the Division of Allergy at the Natonal Institute of Allergy and Infection Disease, the caffeine in a cup of coffee can act to defuse tensions in branching trachea (bronchi). However, despite having the benefit of breathing.

Tempe Reduce Risk of Heart Disease

Menopause is a natural process in women is characterized by decreased ovarian function resulting in decreased production of estrogen. Reduced estrogen leads to various problems, one of which increase the risk of heart disease. The decline in estrogen production causes disruption of blood fat metabolism so it will aggravate the blood lipid profile and oxidation in the body so vulnerable women suffering from coronary heart disease. The linkage is what encourages Diah Mulyawati Utari research doctoral studies in Human Nutrition Program, Graduate School (SPs), Bogor Agricultural University (IPB) and brought the benefits of tempeh for menopausal women.
Easily oxidized lipids in the body, resulting in the formation of lipid peroxidation characterized by increased malondialdehyde (MDA). High levels of MDA can be used as an indicator of free radicals in the body. Excess free radicals are risk factors for degenerative diseases such as heart disease, stroke, and cancer. Lipid particularly in LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C), known as the bad cholesterol is the primary target of oxidation.

 The occurrence of the K-LDL oxidation is one of the main factors of blood vessel blockage. To prevent this required the presence of antioxidants, one of which is the endogenous antioxidant superoxide dismutase (SOD) which is the first defense against the oxidation process in the body. He said, in the last 10-12 years, research on the benefits of soy protein and isoflavones increased and depth, and proved that soy consumption not only improve some aspects of health in postmenopausal women, but also improve heart health.
The process of fermentation, so the levels of amino acids, fatty acids, and isoflavones in soybean is much higher than soybeans. Research has been conducted in the city of Bogor (Indonesia) with a total sample of 53 postmenopausal women. The menopausal women are given 160 grams of tempeh every day for four weeks. The amount is equivalent to four slices of tempeh size. Tempe is steamed for 10 minutes and then mixed with certain herbs so be ready to eat foods.

The criteria for the sample in this study were women who experienced menopause, menopause span of 1-5 years, one of the abnormal lipid profiles, not being sick or had a history of degenerative disease, not taking drugs and supplements, do not use estrogen therapy, instead of vegetarianism , and willing to comply with the study. Samples were captured via integrated active coaching post in the city of Bogor.

Analysis shows that food tempe highest amino acid content in tempeh is the highest fatty acid arginine and is linoleic acid. Tempe is also rich in isoflavones and relative levels can be maintained if the tempeh mixed with steaming (not frying).

Statistical test results showed that administration of 160 grams tempeh every day for four weeks can improve lipid profiles in decreased levels of total cholesterol, LDL-C (bad cholesterol), and triglycerides. tempeh may also increase the activity of the antioxidant enzymes SOD and MDA and decrease LDL oxidation. The results of this study indicate that significantly tempeh has the ability to reduce risk factors for coronary heart disease.
Public advised to increase consumption of tempeh every day on an ongoing basis, particularly in menopausal women as well as other groups who have a high risk of coronary heart disease. And to get the maximum effect for health, tempeh should be processed by steaming and frying by avoiding processing.
