Asthma is a chronic lung condition whose symptoms
include wheezing, chest tightness, laboured breathing and bronchospasms. Airways normally constrict when exposed to
smoke, pollutants, very cold air or toxic substances. Asthmatic individuals produce a more
exaggerated response and are much more susceptible to otherwise harmless substances
and activities such as pollen, allergens and exercise. Stress and emotional duress can trigger or worsen an attack. Complications include emphysema, early congestive heart failure or vocal cord problems if left untreated.
Bronchial asthma is divided into the following
Allergic: this type of asthma starts in childhood and is often preceded by eczema. Genetic factors play a significant in this, as excessive immunoglobulins are present in such patients.
Psychological factors: anxiety and stress are often considered to be the sole cause of some asthmatic attacks.
Occupational asthma: this occurs in certain industrial type settings where there is exposure to metallic dusts, biological detergents, dust and other harmful toxins.
Homeopathy is a viable and beneficial option for the treatment and management of asthma. Homeopathy treats each patient individually therefore different treatment plans will exist from patient to the next. More about homoepathy......
