Breathe easy With Tea Tree Oil…Treating Asthma

Once there was this female in my grade…who didn’t know that she had asthma…and in a race..she enthusiastically participated…but at the end of it…she was terribly out of breath…she was baffled…she had ran so many other times but the ‘out-of-breath’ scenario wasn’t this terrible ever…so she was rushed in the ambulance to a nearby medical centre…doctor instantly diagnosed asthma…she was shocked…

But..with proper care and attention…she controlled it to quite an extent…

One of the reasons that she disclosed was…tea Tree Oil…She being a crusader of nature’s natural healers…

Here’s how…why…telling you…

Usually…This first inventor also comes from a family known for a long history of respiratory problems….Therefore….the inventors decided to look beyond conventional “modern medicine” to help the first inventor…and as a result…have conceived methods to substantially prevent colds…flu….and infections of the human respiratory system….

These methods include the inhalation of the vapours of tea tree oil that are theorized to form a protective…and infection-preventing…thin layer within the entire respiratory system…including

  • the lungs
  •  bronchial tubes
  •  the nasal cavities

okay…I’ll speak in pure professional language…stay glued and attentive…This thin layer maintains its anti-pathogenic properties for a period of time following the inhalation of the vapours for at least one-half hour…and perhaps longer….This thin anti-pathogenic layer substantially prevents the initial infection of colds…flu…and other pathogens for a period of time following inhalation…

The inventors also propose the prophylactic use of inhaled eucalyptus oil and/or tea tree oil to prevent additional tuberculosis…which is becoming a major health problem in the United States…The inventors further propose the prophylactic use of inhaled tea tree oil to prevent opportunistic infections of the human respiratory system of individuals having cystic fibrosis….

Now another known fact…While certain medical uses for tea tree oil have been previously disclosed….to the inventor’s best knowledge…none of those previously disclosed methods have suggested…or proposed… that the periodic inhalation of vapours from tea tree oil may be used as prophylactic agents to substantially prevent infection of colds…flu…and other pathogens within the respiratory system of human beings for a duration of time following that inhalation….After the infection of human beings with certain pathogens…previous inhalation therapies have suggested using tea tree oil to aid in the recovery from certain respiratory diseases….Though…none of these previous methods have suggested using tea tree oil vapours as prophylactic agents to routinely and substantially prevent the initial infection of pathogens for a duration of time following their inhalation as a primary method of preventing disease…

Unlike the name suggest, the essential oil of Tea Tree is not extracted from the plant of common tea. Neither it is synonymous to Tea Oil, which is extracted from the seed of Tea plant. Instead, it is extracted through steam distillation of twigs and leaves of Tea Tree, whose botanical name is Melaleuca Alternifolia. Main constituents of Tea Tree Essential Oil are –

  • Alpha Pinene
  • Beta Pinene
  • Sabinene
  • Myrcene

This tree is a native to Australia and its oil was known among the original inhabitants of Australia as an All-Cure medicine since time immemorial.

The All-Cure name given to this oil is not a bit exaggerated. The Tea Tree oil can be used as a cure for almost all sorts of tropical infections and diseases. You name it and it has the cure for that disease. It is invariably found in almost all the households of Australia, particularly those having small children. The magical healing and disinfectant properties make it a wonder-drug. It also boosts up immunity.

No! That was not all! It has numerous aces up its sleeves which can be covered under following general medicinal properties it possesses.

  It is said that wherever Mother Nature gave the diseases, she gave the cures there itself. The activity of microbes, bacteria, virus and fungi are at their peaks in the Tropics and hence most of the medicinal plants are found there too. Tea Tree is one such plant. It can cure some of the ugliest bacterial infections of the Tropics. Wounds, which are most prone to bacterial infections in this region, can be effectively cured and protected using this oil. Although this oil is seldom taken orally, but if so, in mild concentrations, can cure internal bacterial infections too, such as those in colon, stomach, intestines, excretory system and urinary system. It can also be used in treatment of Tuberculosis.
