Asthma or dyspnea/breathlessness can be very
frustrating and even life threatening at some times. Easy gasping with tiredness
and inability to do exerting works are the main features of asthma. It get
worsened in cold climate/regions. Asthma makes one less efficient in work and at
home. It also impairs one's enjoyment in life. Asthma can start from as early as
1/2 years of age or as late as 40/50 years of age. There are a number of causes
for this. Prominent among them is allergy,
followed by smoking habit. Respiratory infections can also cause this. A family
history is another one. Some times psychological causes may also be there.
Usually if treated properly childhood
asthma is easy to control and
will not pass on as adult asthma. Where as adult asthma, once it develops to its
full capacity, is very difficult to control and cure. The usual method in
conventional medicine is to give salbutamol or similar drugs along with
steroids. This over a period of time will damage the system and lower the
immunity of body so that one has to continuously depend on such medicines. More
over in allergy patients it will always remain there.
Homeopathic treatment can tackle the problem
of asthma to a great extend. There are many cases even completely cured! But one
has to continue medicine for a long time with vigil. Also practice all the
directions of the physician exactly.
Allergy to certain substances is very common in
people. Every one will be allergic to some thing or the other. It become a
problem when allergy causes serious complications and also when it start
interfering with ones daily life. A variety of things including inert substances
like dust, food materials, pollens of flowers or certain drugs etc. can cause
allergy. The typical pattern of changes seen after one is exposed to the
allergen is itching of skin with or without rashes, oedema/bloating,
breathlessness etc. Occasionally it can get very sever that one has to be
admitted to a hospital for emergency treatment! Another frustrating sequel of
allergy is asthma (see above). Allergic asthma is the most
difficult to cure as there is no treatment available in conventional medicine
for allergy. Mainly because allergy is an error in the immune mechanism. That is
in most case of allergies the body responds to certain common substances as if
they are poisons.
IN homoeopathy we have good medicines to cure off allergy!. Allergies such as
milk, chocolates, coriander, wheat, yeast etc are some of them. Here also one
has to undergo treatment for a long period as we have to re-write the immune
sequence of the body which etched deeply whether it is inborn or acquired.
