How Homeopathy can cure Asthma?
Homeopathy address Asthma symptoms in myriad ways, for example Ammi Visnaga addresses bronchial spasmodic function in a orthodox way, Aralia racemosa treats allergic catarrh. Similarly Eriodictyon californicum eliminates hard oppressive mucous in chest, Bryonia relieves difficult expectoration and dry cough, Natrium chloratum soothes irritation of the mucous membranes. The over arching goal of homeopathic asthma treatment is the constitutional amelioration of the fermenting system and not to intercept or paralyze histamin.

Steroids are a quick fix for serious asthmatic attacks and the American academy of allergy does not condone their use except in life threatening situations. Inhalers on the other hand are undoubtedly useful for less severe symptoms of Asthma but they too are not free of side effects. In fact they end up clogging the breathing passages as they dry up the lung secretions making it difficult to clear the chest and throat from mucous.
Homeopathy presents a more trustworthy and dependable system of treatment for Asthma due to a variety of reasons. Here too most commonly a single remedy is not enough to effect a cure and a series of homeopathic medicines over a period several months or years is needed to get the desired results. A good homeopath always bears this in mind and changes medicines only when it has stopped doing any further good.
