Pneumonia | Asthma | Bronchitis | Tuberculosis – Spiritual Meaning and Causes

Lung diseases are some of the most frequent medical problems in the world and include – COPD,  asthma, pneumonia, influenza, lung cancer, tuberculosis, and many other breathing problems. It is estimated that around 4 million people die of some type of lung disease per year.

Spiritual meaning of pneumonias

In general, lung conditions are caused by repressed misery, troubles, sorrows, fear of pleasure and the joys of life. Therefore, lungs are affected by our lack of love for the world around us.

Pneumonia is a sign that the process of communicating with life and all its aspects, including the non-material ones, is disturbed. You are caught in a conflict with your own Ego which put its mark on your health. In many cases, the person involved has suffered emotionally and as a result, she has withdrawn inside herself.

Breathe the breath of life again. The flow of anguish and joy are the same. In the turmoil of life, there is a balance of harmony.

Other causes

Many different types of bacteria can also cause pneumonia, including Staphylococcus aureus and Haemophilus influenzae, as well as some types of fungi and viruses or by inhaling dust, food, gas, and liquid.

Tips – although this condition can also appear in healthy and young individuals, it is most dangerous for babies, older adults, and individuals with impaired immune systems or other chronical diseases. More importantly, it can be fatal in up to 30 percent of severe cases which are managed in the intensive-care setting.

When you suffer from asthma, you breathe a lot of air but you have a difficulty releasing it. Because you release such a small amount of air, you may not be able to breathe in enough and thus, the respiratory capacity will diminish more and more.

You are probably a person who yearns for love but who has not yet learned to offer it. However, always taking without giving something in return will eventually create an imbalance.

Give others what you already have and a new life will begin to circulate through you. Don’t be afraid to admit your feelings of helplessness and insignificance; if you do so, you will receive the support you need one way or another.

Become aware of what you have recently rejected. Accept and embrace Life entirely and realize that there are no “enemies” – they were just a product of your conscious mind. In the end, you will be able to breathe freely again – such a wonderful feeling.

Other causes

According to recent estimates, this condition affects 22 million people in the United States and more than 300 million individuals around the world.

Other causes include – air pollution, genes, modern hygiene standards, chlorine in swimming pools, dairy products (especially due to their casein content – the main protein in milk), antibiotics. Furthermore, physical exercise may trigger this condition, however, correct warmup exercises can control this.

Tips – patients with asthma usually experience symptoms when the airways inflame, tighten, or fill with mucus. The environment and lifestyle of a patient with asthma may or may not trigger the asthma attacks.

Spiritual meaning of bronchitis

Bronchitis indicates an acute conflict, anger, or family disorder. A cold indicates that there is something you unconsciously want to remove, something that disturbs and infuriates you.

Realize that your family members, like everyone else, are attending the same life school as you do. Accept that each person has its own way of life. Reconcile with yourself and the life you are leading.

Other causes

If you have acute bronchitis (an inflammation of your bronchial tubes which carry air to your lungs), you might have cold symptoms, like – body aches or a mild headache. Chronic bronchitis is a more serious condition which doesn’t go away at all or keeps coming back.

Viruses cause approximately 90% of acute bronchitis cases in adults. These are the same viruses which cause the flu or the common cold. An important cause of chronic bronchitis is the cigarette smoke, as well as other irritants, such as – textiles (fabric fibers), grain dust, ammonia, chlorine or strong acids.

Tips – most cases of acute bronchitis cases go away on their own. Antibiotics are not used to treat this condition with the exception of patients whose infection is caused by bacteria.

Spiritual meaning of tuberculosis

Tuberculosis reveals that in a previous life the person lived only for material values. Also, tuberculosis indicates a severe conflict of the Ego with life. You expect too much from yourself and that has made you forget the wonderful breath of life.

Breathe again freely and open yourself to life in all its unity and diversity and realize that there is enough for anything and anyone.

Other causes

Tuberculosis (TB) is caused by bacteria which spreads from individual to individual through microscopic droplets released into the air. Although this condition is spread in a similar way as the flu or the cold, tuberculosis isn’t as contagious. Moreover, in some rare cases, TB can spread to other parts of the body, like the spine and brain.

Tips – only about ten percent of individuals infected with M. tuberculosis develop TB. Because their immune systems aren’t fully formed, young children and babies are at greater risk,
