Asthma is usually caused by an unknown allergy and can be aggravated by infections such as colds and influenza, as well as by anxiety.
The lung airways contract, exacerbated by a build up of mucus in the tubes. Chest tightness is accompanied by breathlessness and wheezing.
Its acute phase can be very frightening, and even dangerous if the attack is severe, when the sufferer is fighting for every breath.
If this happens, seek medical help immediately: it can be dangerous to rely solely on self-help methods.
Asthma is an increasing problem in children, as many as 1 in 10 children are equipped with an inhaler for emergencies.
Constitutional treatment be a qualified homeopath is essential for a complete cure.
Consider the following remedies for mild attacks only.
Asthma requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
