Asthma is a chronic lung disease that causes diffuse inflammation of the airways, with production of large quantities of mucus making the air passages narrow. Symptoms include chest tightness, difficulty in breathing, coughing and wheezing. Symptoms of asthma can be mild, moderate or severe at any point. Severe asthma attacks may require hospitalization and have to be treated as an emergency. Asthma is usually triggered by allergic reactions to certain substances like pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, cockroach droppings, chemicals etc. Change of weather, exercise or emotions can also trigger an attack. Asthma affects people of all ages though it usually starts during childhood. It is one of the leading causes of hospitalization in children, causing significant absenteeism from school.
I have personally seen Classical Homeopathy work very well for asthma. We try to find the most suitable remedy for you, based on your current symptoms, family history, past symptoms, mental and emotional state. Your remedy should gradually help your asthma symptoms improve. With the right treatment, over time you should notice improvement in your lung function tests, fewer emergency visits to the hospital and ability to breathe better. Since asthma is very often associated with allergies and eczema (a skin disease mostly allergic in nature), we will also be addressing these aspects during the treatment. Night is a common time for asthma aggravation, leading to sleep deprivation in many. As your symptoms improve, you should be able to sleep better and start your day well-rested. Homeopathy is non-toxic and the effects are long lasting!
