How To Treat Deep Chest Cough With Homeopathy?

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Delhi
How To Treat Deep Chest Cough With Homeopathy?

Come winter or even a slight change of season, and it is easy to catch a cold. With cold, it is quite normal and natural to develop a deep chest cough. However, it is to be noted that chest cough develops due to different reasons. Some are due to chest infections, while others are dry cough. Thus, for these different variations of cough, different homeopathic treatments are administered. Here is a list of some of the common types of treatments for curing deep chest cough-

  1. Pulsatilla: Pulsatilla is administered to those who have a sore throat, constant irritation in the eyes and fever. When fever is accompanied with cough and cold, it is important to treat all three symptoms, lest it might usher in a more serious disease. Homeopathy is often described as a holistic form of treatment. Through the medicines, the personality of the patient can be determined. For instance, Pulsatilla is administered on those who are soft, gentle, mild and timid and who have a fear of being abandoned and thus cling on to people.

  2. Nux Vomica: Those experiencing high levels of stress and falling prey to cough and cold with a sore throat and sharp pain while swallowing should try a dose of Nux Vomica. This is used to cure cough and cold, which block the nose, especially at night, making it troublesome for the individual to breathe. This might also cause blockage in the ear and sharp pains while trying to swallow food.

  3. Phosphorus: At times, one experiences an extreme bout of cough that is triggered through dry throat and coarse fever. This violent cough can be nerve wrecking at times and a relaxing remedy is preferred by the patient as soon as possible to soothe the irritation.

  4. Bryonia: This is the best medicine to treat dry cough that can be a symptom of a slowly approaching influenza. Such coughs occurs when an individual takes a high intake of cold drinks or due to sudden weather changes. The cough is followed by fever and dryness of the throat. It might also itch to a certain extent.

  5. Natrum Mur: It is the best treatment for a dry cough, which often causes a tingling sensation in the throat. This sensation creates irritation and often leads to sleepless nights for the patient. There is also presence of whitish mucus in such types of cough.

These are some of the most common types of homeopathic treatments for treating deep chest cough. Each cough is different in nature and origin, and hence should be treated differently as per the individual symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath and ask a free question.

I am 50 years of age. On 26th aug I had taken x ray of chest and some blood test found pulmonary t. B. As per doctor I had started with medicine AKT4. Once again I had checked my blood test of sputum as negative but my white cell of 8900 is reduced to 6400. Now I increased my weight approximately 8kg in 20 days is there any progress in my health please guide me.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS

As per your history, if your diagnosis of tb was only based upon only chest x ray, it can be called inadequate proof of disease, because chest x ray is not a specific test to detect tb, if sputum test for tb was also done at start of treatment and it was positive for bacteria, then you had a confirm diagnosis. Any ways you have gained good weight after starting medicine, but if your symptoms also have started improving, like decrease in cough & sputum quantity, no fever now, then all these are positive points, anyways white cell count of 8900 as well as 6400 are both in normal range and should not be a cause of worry.

First of all, just ensure that you have an extra inhaler. Because nothing works like the inhalers. If still such situation occurs, steam inhalation and some coffee may help. Don't panic and control your breath. Final line- inhalers are the best, usually no alternative for fast relief. If no relief, don't delay trying home remedies, rush to the nearby hospital.

I am suffering from asthma since childhood. When I was 14 years old 1 doctor suggested to use inhaler. Now I became addicted to inhaler. I wanted a permanent cure of asthma.

Hi, bronchitis/ asthma can be treated well with homoeopathic medicines completely, only need to be regular with the medication and avoid those foods/ things to which you are allergic to for sometime. Keep taking your already on going medication, reduce it gradually and slowly once homoeopathic starts acting. Take bakson's astha-aid drops/ 10-15 drops in 1/2 cup water/ thrice d day for 1 month. Report me back after a month.

Homeopathy For Asthma

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy

Homeopathy For Asthma

Asthma is a condition that severely affects the lungs. The airways become narrow and the lungs become inflamed. Its characteristic features include bronchospasm, reversible airflow obstruction and variable and recurring symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and chest tightness. This might be caused up to 2 to 3 times a day.

Causes:

  1. Daily use of Paracetamol
  2. Vaccines
  3. Daily use of antibiotics
  4. Caesarean sections
  5. Asthma in family

Asthma is usually triggered by:

  1. Tobacco Smoke
  2. Exercise
  3. Polluted or Poor air
  4. Cold Air
  5. Emotional Stress
  6. Allergies

Homeopathy is a system of medicine which tries to ‘cure’ this disease, instead of trying to provide symptomatic relief. While dealing with a case of asthma, a homeopath not only records the symptoms of the disease but also studies the medical history, family history, physical and psychological characteristics of a person. This helps to find the cause, the precipitating factors, and the hereditary tendency etc. Of special interest to a homeopath is the history of suppression of skin disease. Homeopaths believe that when there is a tendency or predisposition for a disease – it first manifests on the less vital organs, towards the periphery (like skin). If this manifestation is suppressed than the disease shifts inwards, towards the more vital organs (like lungs, heart, brain etc).

The fact that in children asthma is often preceded by eczema is observed by the allopaths also. This fact is written in all their textbooks of medicine. They say that children often ‘move-out’ of eczema and ‘move-into’ asthma. But they are unable to make a correlation. Homeopaths believe that the suppression of eczema with topical preparations, does not cure the disease/sensitivity of the person, it merely drives it inwards.

Now after ascertaining the symptoms and the cause, the homeopath tries to find a medicine which matches the symptoms as well as the general characteristics of the person. The medicine so selected is administered to the patient.

When a right medicine is given, the asthma disappears but the old eczema or skin rash reappears for some time, before finally disappearing itself. This reappearance of old symptoms is seen as a reversal of disease process and is considered a very good prognostic sign by homeopaths.

MEDICINES – There are lots of medicines in homeopathy for asthma symptoms and it is not possible to list them all here. Some of the common medicines are ars- alb, ipecac, lachesis, pulsatilla, spongia, sulphur, ignatia, antim-tart, hepar-sulph, nat-sulph, tuberculinum etc. The selection of medicine varies from patient to patient. Therefore, it is always recommended to consult a specialized homeopath for treating your individual case.

I have been an overweight kid all through my life as I suffered from Bone TB in my childhood and the medicine made me fat. However, in attempt to lose weight I consulted a friend who advised me to take OPTISULIN a table a day in order for to lose weight before I go for my walks in the evening. I am confused now as I am not suffering from diabetes or high or low blood pressure. However, I have my father and mother both suffering from the same diseases. I am 28 years old, height is 5ft 11 inches and weight is 125kgs. Please advice if I can take this medicine or not as he told me it is completely safe and will not give me any side effects.

Hello! 1st thing you need to do is take advice of a qualified dietitian. Only a qualified expert can help to solve any of our problem without any complication. And medication or pills for weight reduction is not at all a good solution for any one. One might lose weight for that particular period but once stop pills again weight gain n many complication can take place. So I must advice go for small n frequent healthy meals with some activity n visit a dietitian. It will help.
