1 in 13 people suffer from asthma in the United States. To date, there is no cure for asthma and people have to rely on prevention and control methods. Keeping away from triggers and having an inhaler available nearby is the best asthma management plan available with conventional medicine.
People can also opt for alternative therapies and natural methods to tackle asthma.
Homeopathic treatment is one of them.
Allopathic doctors recommend inhalers which make breathing easier during an asthmatic attack because they relax the airway muscles. Conventional medicine targets such problems by targeting symptoms rather than treating the whole person-body, mind, spirit. This is one reason people have been increasingly considering alternative natural therapies to deal with mental and physical health issues.
Homeopathy can be chosen as a complementary form of treatment to strengthen the immune system against the environmental factors which trigger asthmatic attacks. It does not just tackle the symptoms; in fact, it endeavors to eliminate the core issue which is causing the symptoms with nature-based substances.
Relief from Asthmatic Attacks
In the event of an asthmatic emergency, you should call an ambulance immediately. Severe asthmatic episodes can be life threatening. This is because you are being deprived of the most crucial component necessary for your survival at that very moment - oxygen. So, be sure that you do not delay calling 911.
You can also consider homeopathy for the long haul. In fact, a study published in Lancet in 1994 proved that homeopathy is particularly effective in treating allergic asthma in children as opposed to placebos.
Many homeopathic remedies such as Pulsatilla, Arsenicum album, Ipecacuanha and aconitum napellus can help one to fend off asthmatic attacks as well as get relief from the associated symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest congestion, wheezing, and anxiety.
It’s important to remember that there is no one remedy for all when homeopathy is utilized. Homeopathic practitioners do a thorough investigation/intake of the medical problem before prescribing homeopathic medicines.
