My father has an asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer for long term?

Dear lybrate user, asthma is preceded by the production of histamines in the blood. Histamine is produced due to the entrance of foreign particles in the body. The triggering cause behind the onset of asthma varies in every patient. A detailed case taking along with some blood test results are required to diagnose the proper underlying cause of asthma. Please conduct a laboratory test of your blood for tc, dc, esr & ige. Revert back with the results & consult me privately via lybrate. In the mean-time you can take homoeopathic mother tincture grindelia robusta q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. If you prefer ayurvedic medicines then you can take ayurvedic arjunarista syrup. Take 20 ml of the aforesaid syrup thrice daily after meals.

7 Healthy Habits That Keep Your Immune System Strong

General Physician, Mumbai
7 Healthy Habits That Keep Your Immune System Strong

Over time, we have caused tremendous harm to our immune system. Day in and day out, we have potentially risked our lives by being so casual with our health choices. But still, is it possible to leverage some of this burden and thus make our immune system stronger? What if we incorporate some healthy habits into our daily regime? What if we improvise on our diet? Take certain additional vitamin supplements perhaps? Make other lifestyle changes in the hope of achieving a near-perfect immune system?

What exactly is the Immune System?

The immune system in layman language can be considered as a protective cover of the human health system. We are surrounded by millions of pathogens (disease causing germs) that have the ability to enter into the body and cause damage to it. Here comes in the importance of the immune system, the body’s natural shield against these pathogens.

How can you boost your Immunity?

You definitely cannot evade all the pathogens and get a top-notch, impeccable immune system, but you can at least try and listen to what your body has to say, and take steps accordingly.

The first and foremost protective measure can be to follow certain general good-health guidelines.

  1. Do not smoke. There can be no compromise on this issue. Smoking or consuming tobacco in any form brings about a host of health complications; the most pronounced of them all is probably cancer. Smoking, in more ways than one, can spell real trouble for your immune system. So better cut down on your puffs or gear up to face the various medical banes of smoking.

  2. Eat a diet which is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low in saturated fat. Some examples may include citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables such as spinach or lettuce, yoghurt, almonds, lean meat. Sipping on green tea thrice a day is a wise choice in this regard. These measures not only strengthen the immune system but also enhance the Immune System.

  3. Drink plenty of water. Water keeps the body hydrated, the ultimate prerequisite for a strong immune system. It helps to flush out all the toxins and ensures that the cells get the optimum levels of oxygen. Drinking a glass of lukewarm water mixed with honey and lemon on an empty stomach after getting up in the morning can prove to be one of the best health choices that you can make for your body.

  4. If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation. Excessive alcohol consumption causes dehydration and it can deprive your body of the valuable immunity boosting nutrients. It also impairs the body’s ability to fight off germs and infections.

  5. Get adequate sleep. One reason behind stressing on the need to get adequate sleep is because it’s so closely linked to the immune system. While you sleep, the body secretes certain hormones and substances which help better fight infections and diseases. This makes these hormones so vital and indispensable at the same time. So now you know what wonders can those 8 hours of sleep do to you.

  6. Exercise Regularly. If you're looking for a safe and smart way to boost your immunity, regular exercise is the answer to it. But we are not talking about being an ardent, hard-core gym-junkie; rather exercising in moderate amounts would suffice. Cardiovascular exercises such as walking or swimming, performed 30-45 minutes a day, can prove to be very beneficial.

Including good hygiene habits in your daily routine, such as washing your hands properly, bathing and brushing your teeth daily, etc. can be useful as well. Good sanitary habits can be the most basic way to ward off infections at the germination stage. Keep a hand sanitizer with you all the time. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am 16 years old young boy, from this few days I am facing some breathing problems at night, and feeling very weak. ...
So young boy, is the diagnosis of asthma made by your doctor or you are just guessing yourself that you have asthma? if it is a clinical diagnosis made by a doctor, then the doctor might have also discussed with you the way to get rid of asthma. Asthma is a disease of lungs in which there is no short method of getting it cured. There are chances of getting it cured only when it can be kept under a good control for long time (may be years), so the goal in asthma should be to keep it under control and not curing it within a short time (which is usually not possible)

Whether long use of Seroflo 250 for asthma is harmful. Which medicine is suggested for very occasional asthma.

General Physician, Nashik
Whether long use of Seroflo 250 for asthma is harmful. Which medicine is suggested for very occasional asthma.
Montemac L is a controlled medicine for allergic asthma. If you are able to remain symptom free by using it daily, I would suggest you to continue it for at least 3 months continuously. I would suggest you to consult an Allergist-Immunologist who will suggest you allergy testing. This will help you identify substances causing symptoms to you as well as precautions regarding how to avoid them. Also, an Allergist may suggest you specific allergen immunotherapy depending upon the results of allergy testing, which may improve your allergy symptoms. Please try to avoid exposure to smoke, dusts and air pollution as much as possible. Also please do not smoke if you are a smoker. A nutritive diet rich in vitamins & minerals including anti-oxidants is very important to support immune system. I would also suggest you regular breathing exercises which help you in a long run.

You don't need to take rotacaps lifelong. First you need to find out the allergens responsible for her allergies by doing allergy skin prick testing. There s also an option of allergen immunotherapy.

Here is Why You Must Protect Your Ojas

Here is Why You Must Protect Your Ojas

Your Ojas is your protection and health shield

Immunity in Ayurveda is linked to good digestion, a balanced endocrine system, proper functioning of the liver and a strong agni or metabolism. It's also strongly connected to a subtle essence known as ojas, which means vigor. According to Ayurveda, the strength of your ojas has a bearing on the influences and factors (both external and internal), which cause you to suffer from any health problem. By protecting your ojas, you boost your body's immune system and protect you from every external or internal harms.

There are times when the protection of this subtle essence becomes vital and these are:

- Periods of recuperation
- Stressful situations
- Period between seasons
- Cold and flu period
- Times of rejuvenation
- Drastic change in your routine
- Major life changes like having a baby or divorce

How to go about protecting your ojas and boosting your immunity levels?

1. When it comes to boosting your immunity and fortifying your ojas through diet, garlic is a very useful food. It provides natural support to your body's immune system by kindling your agni, eliminates destroys natural toxins, ensures your body temperature is at an optimal level, improves the functioning of the lungs and as well as removes excess kapha (one of the three energies or doshas) from your body.

2. The adoption of certain fruitful Ayurvedic therapies such as yoga, pranayama and meditation can help in supporting the quality of your ojas, thereby improving your immunity. Although these practices come with diverse benefits, all of them aid in cultivating presence, clearing up your nadis (channels in the body), relieve stress and digest ama (toxins).

3. There are also certain herbs that are known to support your immune system and encourage proper function of the immune system. Herbs like Ashwaganda, guduchi, neem and holy basil ensures a balanced immune system, rendering you with an optimal health.

I am Arun I am suffering from asthma problem I am taking medicines since 2 years but there is no relief.
A respiratory condition marked by attacks of spasm in the bronchi of the lungs, causing difficulty in breathing. It is usually connected to allergic reaction or other forms of hypersensitivity Description To understand asthma, it helps to know how the airways work. The airways are tubes that carry air into and out of your lungs. People who have asthma have inflamed airways. The inflammation makes the airways swollen and very sensitive. The airways tend to react strongly to certain inhaled substances. When the airways react, the muscles around them tighten. This narrows the airways, causing less air to flow into the lungs. The swelling also can worsen, making the airways even narrower. Cells in the airways might make more mucus than usual. Mucus is a sticky, thick liquid that can further narrow the airways. This chain reaction can result in asthma symptoms. Symptoms can happen each time the airways are inflamed. Cause • Allergy • Tobacco Smoke • Environmental Factor • Obesity • Pregnancy • Stress • Genes • Airway Hyperactivity • Atopy Allopathic and Homoeopathic Treatment o Most people need to take more than one type of medication to control asthma. O Not everyone with asthma takes the same Homoeopathic medication. There are many different asthma medications and they come in many forms: pills. O Allopathic medications are often divided into two groups: bronchodilators and anti-inflammatory agents. O There's no allopathic medication to cure asthma completely. Asthma medications are used to stop, control and prevent asthma symptoms. O Within three month of Homoeopathic treatment Asthma is permanently curable. Cost of Treatment Direct Cost Indirect cost Intangible Cost Cost of Doctor Loss of productive work by patient Grief Cost of Hospital Treatment Loss of productive work by patient family Fear Cost of Drug Early retirement from work Pain Cost of Investigation Unhappiness Cost of Equipment’s Loss of Quality of life Examination Origin, Development and Progress of Disease is Important as this leads to the choice of Homoeopathic remedy. During Homoeopathic Treatment patient should observe and report symptoms. No Specific examination is required as character of complaint is treated. Blood Test Required? Yes we refer to previous Blood Investigation. Treatment Steps To confirm a session, please leave a message. We will synchronise timings and request a case taking session. How long patient will take Homoeopathic Drugs? 1 Month Is Homoeopathic Cure Permanent? Yes How many drugs are the required to start Treatment? How can I get the drug? Homoeopathic Medicine are easily available at nearest drug stores, 4-5 Drugs are required which will cost less than 6-7$. Is cure Permanent? What Diet modification required? Homoeopathic Cure is permanent and patient need to be careful in Diet regime and should quit Smocking Habit.
