Asthma is a common chronic disease worldwide and affects approximately 24 million persons in the United States. It is the most common chronic disease in childhood, affecting an estimated 7 million children.
Asthma is a chronic disease of the airways characterized by recurrent attacks of breathlessness and wheezing. It isn`t clear why some people get asthma and others don`t. It is probably due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors.
Understanding the type of asthma you have can help you seek the most effective treatment when you have an asthma attack.
There are a number of approaches to classifying asthma. One of the ways to classify types of asthma is to look at the underlying cause:
Asthma is usually diagnosed based on the presence of wheezing and confirmed with breathing tests.
Things that set off or worsen your asthma are called triggers. Identifying and avoiding triggers is an important part of asthma treatment and can lead to significant improvement in your asthma.
Some of the most important triggers:
Your asthma treatment will be based on how frequently you experience symptoms.
Homeopathy aims to stimulate the body’s self-healing response using very small doses of substances that cause symptoms. A wide variety of homeopathic medicines are used to treat asthma. They are safe, effective, with no side effects and cost-effective.
Before you get a homeopathic treatment you will be asked a number of detailed questions not only about your asthma but also about your personal and family medical history. Your case is always very different from that of another person with asthma. Your treatment will be individualized to fit your specific case. There are two general types of homeopathic medication that can give you long-term control or quick relief of symptoms.
Homeopathic treatment can be taken along with your conventional drugs in the beginning. The doses of the long-term allopathic drugs should be decreased gradually when only the asthma is under control. In most cases in mild and moderate asthma conventional drugs can be stopped in 3-6 months after the onset of the homeopathic treatment.
