Homeopathic Treatment for Childhood Asthma
Asthma is primarily a chronic disease (a respiratory allergy) that presents as recurrent attacks of breathlessness cough and wheezing. Asthma can occur at any age, but the childhood asthma is the most common health problem in the present day society. Similarly chronic bronchitis is also another major respiratory problem frequently occurs in children at any age groups. If this chronic bronchitis is not treated properly with constitutional homeopathic treatment then it may turns into bronchial asthma in the future.
The chronic bronchitis and bronchial asthma are not only limited to children but in adult case also. But in comparison to adult the children are more suffer with chronic bronchitis and asthma because children are exposed to more and more allergens such as dust, air pollution, and second-hand smoke. Their immune system is not so much stronger to resist those infections. Another factor is decreasing rate of breastfeeding to the children that deprives the essential substances required for a healthy immune system of a child.
Inhaled medications are the preferred therapy for Asthma patients. Several different kinds of asthma medicines are taken using an inhaler. Inhaled asthma medications go directly to the site of inflammation and constriction in the airways instead of traveling through the bloodstream to get there. Inhaled medications only work if they get to the airways, so learn how to use your inhaler properly. Many people do not use their inhalers properly, so the medication does not reach their airways.
Homeopathic medicines can be a viable alternative to steroid medications. They can be given as an acute treatment in place of puffers but more importantly, Homeopathic professional treatment working with the whole person can cure asthma entirely. Homeopathy is based on the principle of the body healing itself, aided by a remedy that mimics the symptom – or like healing like.

- Improved energy levels

- Is a natural, holistic treatment
There is a vast variation in the frequency and severity of symptoms of asthma from person to person. This is where the individualized treatment with Homeopathy can give significant relief to patients of asthma and help them lead an easy life.
