Asthma & Its Homeopathy Treatment

Asthma & Its Homeopathy Treatment

Inhale, exhale ... inhale, exhale ... Breathing is supposed to be easy and automatic, right? Well, not for all. There are around 24 crore people across the world, who rarely breathe easy, out of which about 3 crore are in India! Unfortunately, as many as half of them are children. Imagine what parents go through seeing their child struggle through the most basic activity in life! In India rough estimates indicate that about 10-15% of children in the age group of 5-10 are prone to asthma. These children and their parents suffer a lot on a psychological front. Preschools reject admissions to asthmatic children. They are left out of field trips as teachers are afraid to take responsibility of an asthmatic child.

Adults dealing with asthma face their own issues including inability to exercise, walk fast to catch trains or buses, or walk long distances. 34% of asthmatics were found to suffer from serious depression and therefore needed treatment not only for their asthma but also for their state of mind.

If you too are one of those who has suffered a lot because of asthma and is looking for a reliable and safe treatment for it, this post is for you. We give you the symptoms, causes and safe as well as sure treatment for asthma.


Some of the common asthma symptoms include:

  • Coughing, especially at night
  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightness, pain or pressure
  • However, not every person with asthma has the same symptoms. Your asthma symptoms may also vary from one asthma attack to the next, being mild during one and severe during another.

In some cases, people suffering from asthma may go for extended periods without having any symptoms, interrupted by periodic worsening of their symptoms called asthma attacks. Others might have asthma symptoms every day. In addition, some people may only have asthma while exercising.

Mild asthma attacks are generally more common. Usually, the airways open up within a few minutes to a few hours. Severe attacks are less common, but last longer and require immediate medical help. It is important to recognise and treat even mild asthma symptoms to help you prevent severe episodes and keep asthma under better control.

Know the early symptoms of asthma

Early warning signs are changes that happen just before or at the very beginning of an asthma attack. Though not severe or dangerous, by recognising these signs, you can stop an asthma attack or prevent one from getting worse. Early warning signs of asthma include:

  • Frequent cough, especially at night
  • Losing your breath easily or shortness of breath
  • Feeling very tired or weak when exercising
  • Wheezing or coughing after exercise
  • Feeling tired, easily upset, grouchy, or moody
  • Decreases or changes in lung function as measured on a peak flow meter
  • Signs of a cold or allergies (sneezing, runny nose, cough, nasal congestion, sore throat, and headache)
  • Trouble sleeping


Asthma can be caused by both hereditary (inherited) and environmental factors. Just because you have a parent with asthma doesn't mean you'll have it too. But you might inherit the tendency to develop asthma.

Some of the other common causes are:

Allergy: Asthma can occur due to an allergy to a certain substance [allergen], perhaps some foods such as eggs, prawns and shell fish; pollutants, physical exertion, viral infection, cold air, tobacco smoke, animal feathers and dander, and even certain conventional medicines. Other factors include chemicals and toxins as well as temperature changes and humidity.

Infection: It can be activated by irritation or infection of the respiratory tract or a gastrointestinal upset, which is typically a result of late or irregular meals, hyperacidity, faulty eating habits, dietetic indiscretion or junk food.

Emotional: Certain emotional factors such as anxiety and emotional worries may trigger sudden bouts of asthma.

Research confirms the occurrence of wheezing in certain individuals following a short period of exercise. It is also obvious that respiratory viruses can provoke bronchospasm [airway obstruction] in asthmatics.


Conventional treatment of asthma, especially the inhalers, can sometimes be associated with side-effects like increased heart rate and muscle weakness. Mood and behavioral changes; allergic reactions; nausea and vomiting; tremors; irregular heartbeats; and persistent headaches can occur due to allopathic medicines usually suggested for asthma. Importantly, children are nowadays getting addicted to or are increasingly getting dependent on inhalers, which has become a cause of worry for most parents.

Homeopathy treatment for asthma can be a safe option for treating asthma without side-effects. Homeopathy does not treat asthma alone, but it treats a patient of asthma as a whole according to the specifics of his/her condition. This is because no two asthmatic individuals have the same symptoms.

Homeopathic treatment for asthma uses safe natural medicines based on medicinal information derived from clinical studies and experiential information of their remedial effects.

Homeopathy treatment for asthma focuses on the presentation of symptoms peculiar to the individual plus what improves or aggravates the condition in relation to time, posture, movement and rest.

The efficacy of homeopathy treatment for asthma has similarly been proven through clinical research. Homeopathic treatment for asthma focuses on bringing down the intensity, frequency and duration of attacks; increasing the disease-free period and minimising the use of chemical drugs.

A holistic approach that includes understanding the emotional and physical concerns of the patient, like anxiety and fear, loss of a loved one, etc is used in homeopathic treatment of asthma. Conditions like change of weather, allergy to pollens and dust, etc., are also considered before suggesting an appropriate remedy. Natural medicines are given to help reduce spasms of the respiratory tract and build overall body immunity. Homeopathic medicines also improve breathing capacity, which can be measured by peak flow meter.

So, if you want an effective and permanent cure for your asthma or for your child suffering from asthma, do not hesitate to consult a homeopathic doctor. Homeopathy can be your option for side-effects free asthma treatment.
