Asthma is characterized by inflammation of the bronchial tubes. Asthma manifests as the airways tighten, inflame or fill with mucus. Common symptoms include coughing (especially at night), wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, pain or pressure.
Asthma can be considered an emergent condition requiring immediate attention to restore proper breathing, which is best handled initially in a hospital setting.
How we treat Asthma naturally:
Once the individual has been stabilized, we can then address treatment and prevention of future attacks.
There are many factors that can trigger asthma, but the initial response to any trigger is often inflammation. For this reason, we will focus on identifying these inflammatory triggers. As with many other conditions, we will take a holistic approach identifying triggers be it environmental (toxins, chemicals, others), food (chemicals as artificial colors/flavors, other food additives or allergies/sensitivities), substances (alcohol, drugs, caffeine, or others), sleep habits, proper detoxification, and others.
The holistic approach we use when treating asthma includes homeopathy, Emotion Code therapy, electrical stimulation, acupuncture, dietary changes to avoid stimulating foods, decreasing stress, supplementation and others. Family support is also key in helping the individual work through the current symptoms. The main goal is to restore proper function while decreasing the use of medications.
