Breathe easy after Homeopathy Treatment for Asthma

In a research conducted by professors at the University of Glasgow, Europe's largest medical school, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials showed that over 80% patients given a homeopathic medicine for asthma showed improvement, while only 38% of patients given a placebo experienced a similar degree of relief. Isn’t it time you took your step towards getting treated with Homeopathy?

Our experience of treating more than 10,000 cases of asthma with homeopathy at Dr. Batra’s shows that majority of patients experience significant improvement in their health after commencing treatment. The individualized treatment provided to the patients at Dr. Batra’s has helped thousands to overcome their suffering and lead a healthy life again.

Our Chest Physician carefully evaluates the cases and regularly tracks as well as documents the improvement. With the help of the Spirometer, the asthmatic state of each patient is very closely monitored. Thus every case is given special attention with regards to the treatment.

Reduced frequency and severity of attacks, shorter duration of the attacks and overall improved resistance are some of the prime benefits of homeopathic treatment as reported by most of our patients.

It must be borne in mind that the treatment period may vary from case to case and depends on certain factors such as the age of patient, duration of the illness, frequency and severity of complaints, medication taken in the past, etc. Presence of other systemic illnesses in the patient may prolong the duration of treatment.

An interesting aspect about the treatment is that the homeopathic medicine for asthma is not the same for all people suffering with the condition. Case taking is done in-depth and the remedy may vary from person to person since it depends on many factors, few of which are as follows:

  • The triggers of the asthmatic attack
  • Seasonal worsening of the illness
  • Effect of moon phases (full moon, new moon, etc.) on the condition
  • Time of the day when the asthma is better or worse
  • Whether condition is better or worse from lying down, sitting, walking, stooping, etc
  • The effect of emotions, foods, etc. on the attack

After taking all these points (and many more) into consideration, the physician arrives at a constitutional remedy that heals the condition from the root level without causing any suppression.

In cases that are not very severe, homeopathy treatment for asthma can also help to reduce the need for conventional medications as well as reduce their dosage. There is reduced dependency on bronchodilators and steroid inhalers with continued homeopathic treatment. People who regularly use steroid inhalers (and large doses of the same for a long time) must watch out for side-effects of the same such as:

  • Irritability, mood swings, aggression, depression and insomnia
  • Osteoporosis
  • Stunted growth in children
  • Steroid psychosis in severe cases
  • Oral thrush or candidiasis

In severe cases of asthma, the role of homeopathic medicine for asthma is largely palliative. At any rate, homeopathy is strongly suggested for anyone who asthma, whatever is the stage of the illness.
