Hello! It is advisable that you give the patient cinnamon powder. Soak 1 tsp cinnamon powder overnight in a glass of water and consume it in the morning. Empty stomach but after getting fresh. Cinnamon powder is the most effective natural as well as easy to do remedy for your asthma patient and any problem related to it. For her headache problem -Firstly get her eyesight checked up as soon as possible. Make sure you have her head is in the south or east direction while sleeping… The most effective remedy for these kind of problems is" cow ghee" take 1 spoon of cow ghee and warm it, With the help of a dropper, Pour one drop of cow ghee in each of your nostril. It Makes your head nerves lighter and healthier that too without any side effects. Furthermore it is advisable that you keep her stress free by practicing breathing exercise (pranayam) everyday, It is beneficial for both her asthma and headache as well as cold problems. Lastly make sure she takes at least 8 hours of sleep. Asthma and other such problems related to it can also be cured through simple diet and exercise regimes. Remember that prevention is always better than cure. Thanks.

Role of Ayurveda in Treating Asthma

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), modern diagnostics
Role of Ayurveda in Treating Asthma

Asthma is a common disease, characterized by the inflammation of the airways. These airways are responsible for the passage of air and therefore their inflammation causes shortness of breath and extreme discomfort. Though different branches of medicines have tried in their own ways to deal with this problem, Ayurveda with its emphasis on natural remedies has emerged as a clear favorite. According to Ayurveda, it is the stomach that is the source of all chronic diseases. The science believes that as impurities accumulate in our system, diseases like asthma come to the fore.

The different ways by which Ayurveda treats asthma are:

  1. Maintaining a proper diet: Since stomach is identified as the source of most diseases, any attempt to treat them should begin from the stomach itself. Ayurveda believes that those foods, which are easy to digest, inevitably helps in relieving you from the bouts of asthma. The concept that operates behind this is that easily digestible food provides nutrients, which are further absorbed by the tissues. This helps in rebuilding the strong strength as well as keeps the stomach in a sound condition.
  2. Herbal oil massage: A daily massage with herbal oil has always proved to have an extremely soothing and a calming effect on your system. Ideally the massage should be performed before taking a bath as it increases the blood circulation and pacify the nervous system.
  3. Exercise: Ayurveda is perhaps the only branch of medicine that gives equal priority to medications as well as exercises. It is believed that stretching and those exercises that facilitate flexibility can markedly reduce bouts of asthma. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am having white discharge problem which is cough like or saliva like in consistency with foul odour, I had taken medication before but relief is only wen under medication wen I stopped taking medication then after a months or days it recur again n again. I really want to figure out the etiology of this n permanent solution. So please help me out as early as possible.

Homeopath, Raebareli
Some of the most common causes of white vaginal discharge include: Infections from bacteria, fungi or other parasites. Urinary tract infections are also very common female discharge causes. Injuries or trauma to the vagina, the womb or the cervix, which is very common during pregnancy Lack of cleanliness or poor hygienic measures Irritation from objects like an intrauterine contraceptive device The use of sprays, lubricants or jellies Contraceptives used by men or women which could cause irritation Sexually transmitted diseases Following a diet that is low on nutrition It is absolutely for women to consult a doctor and identify the main reason for leucorrhoea whitish discharge. This is because certain health problems, such as anemia and diabetes could also lead to vaginal discharge or leucorrhea. The cause needs to be identified and then the problem would subside. However you can try the followings: Eat one or even two ripe bananas on a daily basis Drink a glass of fresh cranberry juice, preferably without any sugar, once a day For further queries get back to me.
