Homeopathy medicine, and homeopathic treatment of asthma.

Monday, January 27th, 2014

Asthma is a syndrome of variable airflow obstruction. It is characterized pathologically by bronchial inflammation with marked eosinophil infiltration, physiologically by bronchial hyperactivity, and clinically by variable cough, chest tightness, and wheeze. Asthma occurs when the linings of the lung’s bronchial airway become inflamed or swollen, usually due to allergies, airborne irritants or cold weather.  These airways carry oxygen to the blood, and the length of severity of an attack can be fatal.

The diagnosis of asthma is made on the basis of complete history, perceptible sign and symptoms, and proper laboratory investigations.

Homeopathic treatment of asthma

The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat asthma but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several remedies are available to cure asthma that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensations and modalities of the complaints.  For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person.
