BRONCHIAL ASTHMA & HOMOEOPATHIC CURE
Image Not Found
On an average I come across 3 to 4 asthma patients daily, so I thought of writing this blog and sharing some of my experience in managing the asthma patients in our daily homoeo opds. Begining with the basic meaning of the term medically, it is an inflammatory disease of the airways that is characterised by increased responsiveness of the tracheobronchial tree to various stimuli, resulting in widespread spasmodic narrowing of the airways. The acute attacks are characterised by wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness and cough.
Managing a case of Bronchial Asthma has been always a difficult subject even for many Homoeopaths. It requires a lot of patience, hard work, and zeal to understand and treat such patients to bring them into the stage of CURE.
According to me, for the treatment of asthma, we need a thorough knowledge of miasmatic background of the patient alongwith the exciting and maintaining causes. Where, exciting and maintaining factors help in selection of the similimum, miasmatic background knowledge helps in removal of the main obstacle to the cure, selection of potency, repitition of dose and medicine, prognosis, and evaluation of effect of medicine.
Here, I will give a few tips to identify the miasm in the background..
PSORIC miasm
Often one finds in the history that there has been suppression of skin eruptions and onset of asthma can be traced to a period after the suppression Symptoms- (a) More Spams and less secretions
( b) Sudden breath holding spasms
(c) Expectoration is very scanty, mucoid, tasteless
Exciting factors - Emotional and psychological conditions usually trigger
Modalities- Better from (a) Reappearance of skin eruptions
SYCOTIC miasm
Usually, there will be a history of suppression of discharges from mucus membranes, suppression of sweat, and other discharges.
Symptoms- (a) Cough, with marked secretions, scanty difficult expectoration
(b) Expectoration is thick, greenish, yellow.
(c) Cannot breathe through nose.
Exciting factors- (a) Getting wet in rains
(b) Rainy season Modalities- Better in dry weather and from re-establishment of discharges.
TUBERCULAR MIASM
We, often, get a history of repeated upper respiratory infections leading to asthmatic attacks
Symptoms- (a) Cough with excessive expectoration
(b) Expectoration is purulent, muco-purulent or even bloody
Exciting factors- (a) viral, or bacterial infections
(b) cold air, exposure to cold
Modalities- Better under sun, or as the day advances
SYPHILITIC miasm
When irreversible changes has took place in lungs parenchyma. eg. emphysematous changes in lungs Symptoms- Barking cough.
A well selected remedy may also fail to work, if the patient does not take care in avoiding the maintaining factors. So following points has to be followed by the patient :-
1. Take freshly prepared, light, nourishing foods.
2. Do not overload your stomach.
3. Avoid long intervals between meals
4. Do not drink milk at night
5. Avoid preserved tinned food, pickles, fatty and fried foods, spices
6. Diet should include salads, leafy vegetables, germinated grams
7. Non vegetarians should avoid egg, meat, but can take fish only if it agrees.
8. Dinner should be taken at least an hour before going to bed
9.Avoid allergens as much as possible
10. Avoid sudden thermal changes
11. Quit smoking and avoid smokers
12. Avoid keeping pets in the house
Here I will like to say that
PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE

But if you are seeking for permanent cure, only HOMOEOPATHY has the answer.
I have treated & cured so many allergic asthma cases without any side effects.
