I am suffering from coughing on a regular basis. Once in every month I get the same cough problem and it really irritates me. Please suggest any help towards this.

Cold, cough and throat problem can happen due to weather changes, exposure to cold air or rain, dust and pollen allergy and certain sour food. *. Mix some salt in warm water and do gargling early in the mornings. * Steam inhalation will relieve your congestion *. Keep a clove (lavang) in your mouth and slowly chew it. *. Drinking water frequently will eliminate toxins From the body and reduce congestion if any *. Avoid fried and oily foods. This can be treated by homoeopathy without adverse effects. Take Belladonna 200 –once in the morning and once in the evening.

Asthma - Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, and Home Remedies (World Asthma Day Special)

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Asthma - Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, and Home Remedies (World Asthma Day Special)
Asthma is a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways. The narrowing of the airway causes recurrent asthma attacks, wherein air flow to lungs is obstructed. Asthma causes recurring periods of wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing. It cannot be completely cured but it can be helped with minimizing triggers

The triggers can be different for different people. Most common triggers come from:

1) In house - Mold (fungi), dust mites, cockroaches, pet dander.

2) Outside - Air pollution, smog, cigarette, smoke, paint fumes, chemicals, sprays, pollen, industrial dust

3) Allergies - Peanuts, eggs, fish, lactose and food preservatives

4) Other Triggers - Physical exercise, anxiety, agitation, respiratory infections, medications like aspirin, ibuprofen, etc.

Here are top home remedies to control the attack and keep their frequency and intensity low.

1) Ginger - Ginger helps a great deal. You can consume crush it, mix its juice with honey and consume it or boil it in water and drink.

2) Honey - Mix a spoon of honey with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder and have it right before bed. Also, you can add a spoon of honey in warm water and sip on it during the day. Honey and ginger juice in equal parts is very soothing too.

3) Figs - Having figs that have been soaked overnight helps in controlling asthma. Consuming dried figs helps in flushing out the phlegm from your respiratory tract.

4) Mustard - A mixture of warm mustard oil and camphor can be massaged on chest for instant relief. A spoon of mustard oil mixed with an equal quantity of sugar is known to alleviate the symptoms.

My wife has coughed blood today and it happened 2 weeks before once. The color of the blood coming in cough is very light and it happened after two weeks, I am a little concerned I will take her to a doctor this saturday, before that if you can suggest some precaution then that would be helpful.

Most common cause of blood in sputum is tuberculosis. Your wife could be having tuberculosis. Your doctor will advise you x ray chest and sputum test. Other causes are worms, acute bronchitis, pulmonary congestion etc. But they are rare.

Sir I am having both chest and nasal sinus problem from the past 17 years. I also do CT that show I am having allergy in my lungs. I hv almost take every medicines bt that could not effect me much.

Dear consult me for ayurveda treatmnt Ayurvedic treatment of sinusitis involves liquefying and expelling aggravated body energies with the use of certain Ayurvedic herbs and diet as well as nasal therapies and applications. The Panchakarma treatment of Nasya is quite effective in dealing with sinusitis. Diet & Lifestyle Advice Have freshly-prepared and easily-digestible warm food, lots of vegetables, and fresh fruits. Take warm water plain, or prepare it with cinnamon and black pepper. Eat plenty of garlic and ginger. Avoid cold, heavy, oily foods, cold drinks, chocolates, ice cream, cold water, etc. Get plenty of rest. Sleep while lying on one side and with a pillow beneath the head. This prevents the accumulation of mucus in the air passages and helps to avoid difficulties in breathing. Home Remedies Boil 1 to 2 liters of water and add a few drops of clove oil (or a large spoonful of cloves), 10-12 crushed mint leaves, and a few drops of eucalyptus oil (or 1/3 cup of eucalyptus leaves). Inhale the steam for 10-15 minutes. Continue this twice a day until congestion clears and then once a week to clear the phlegm that gets deposited in the sinuses. Have 1 teaspoon of fresh ginger juice with 1 teaspoon of honey in it twice a day. Crush 4-5 peeled garlic buds and inhale the fragrance. This will reduce nasal congestion. Mix 1 tsp of crushed garlic and 1 tsp of turmeric with 2 tbsp of honey. Take 1 tsp daily.

It will not cause any problem since it is cured after treatment. Do tests like sputum for AFB/X Ray chest. If it is negative you will not have any problem. Carry a medical certificate from chest physician.

Asthma is mainly due to increased allergens(allergy creating agents) in your body. So always try to avoid those substances that is allergic for you. Take cinnamon decoction 1 glass daily night. Give hot pack to your chest and back for 15 mins. This will relieve your congestion.
