My sister has asthma problem she is taking asthma pump from many years is there any problem of taking asthma pump? And how will she get fine of this asthma problem?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi. Asthma is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Medication: Asthma can be treated with homoeopathic medicines completely, only need to be regular with the medication and avoid those foods/ things to which you are allergic to for the sometime. Ask her to keep taking her already on going medication, reduce it gradually and slowly once homoeopathic medicine starts acting. Give her Bakson's Astha-Aid drops/ 10-15 drops in 1/2 cup water/ thrice a day for 1 month. Report me back after a month.

I am suffering from tuberculosis moreover I am a casul smoker. Its that I am not able to control to smoke. So can I or can I not smoke once or twice a day besides undergoing the treatment.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
No you must stop smoking. Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.

My son is about 6 years 6months old suffering allergy-asthma from approximately 3 years back. Budecort (100 mg) inhaler & levolin inhaler, montelukast 5mg is consuming everyday as per advice of doctor. Please suggest.

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
In my opinion combine budecart 100 with formetrol a long acting beta 2 agonist 200, to be given by spacer and reduce dependence on levolin inhalation. In good control asthmatics need of levolin inh. Should be nil /less than once/week. This combination is available in market with different name like budamate 100/200.

Tb medications need to be taken empty stomach and keeping a gap of 5 mins in between medicines is enough. 15 min not required. Even if you take all simultaneously and tolerate it then also it is absolutely fine.

Feeling problem in respiration. Also while breathing feeling heaviness in chest from yesterday evening only. Even though all heart medicine is being taken on time. Suggest home remedy if possible also.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS

You must get checked for lungs and hearts as both form one unit, breathless can be due to heat / lungs. Do not ignore the symptoms, may be it is a warning and I do not have a home remedy, except I can advice and remind to take heart medicines on time and be careful about diet, avoid smoke and pollution.

Neither you can predict, nor you can prevent but u can take precautions like avoiding frequent cold and cough, give her healthy diet, allow her to play outside home as much as possible. Not all with single parent having asthma gets the disease.

Cold and cough is mainly viral and usually it does not need medications like antibiotics. Home remedies are helpful and often enough. Warm water for drinking. Warm saline gargle. Hot ginger tea Avoid fruits and curds Hot soups with black pepper is Very Helpful.

Hi, Homeopathy medicines are effective in treating the recurrent attacks of acute tonsillitis as well as chronic tonsillitis. In a significant number of children, homeopathic treatment can help prevent recurrence of frequent tonsillitis, thus helping children avoid tonsillectomy (surgical removal of tonsils) Medication: Take homoeopathic Bakson’s Tonsil-Aid tablet/ 1 tablet thrice a day daily for a month. Report back. Management: -Do warm salt water gargle daily. -Avoid exposure to extremely cold air. -Avoid taking any cold things.
