I have bronchitis and I also have habit of washing hands frequently so if you suggest remedies.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Acute bronchitis is an inflammation of the bronchial tubes in the lungs that may occur secondary to sinusitis, or to a cold or other upper respiratory infection, a fever, a sore throat, nasal discharge or post-nasal drip. The appearance of an episode of bronchitis may be the result of infection, allergies or irritation from chemicals or other inhalants. It may last several days to several weeks. Some occurrences of acute bronchitis may become chronic if left untreated, or if the maintaining causes persist. The symptoms of bronchitis are mainly cough and sputum. The homeopathically significant symptoms relate to variations of these two symptoms, such as the sound, painfulness and timing of the cough, and the viscosity and color of the sputum, giving some indication of the source and severity of the illness As in any homeopathic prescription, other factors also influence the choice of homeopathic medicine, including onset and duration of symptoms, environmental exposures to wind, damp and cold, and emotional factors and stressors

Hi take ginger tea mixed with 2-3 crushed garlic cloves. Massaging the chest with warm sesame oil mixed with salt helps to loosen the phlegm deposited in the chest, especially, when followed with steam inhalation. Take shwas kuthar ras twice a day. Pranacharya asthamin capsule 1-1 twice a day. And pranacharya shwas vikarasav 2-2 tsf twice a day. 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep. Take hot water steam.

Immune System - 6 Healthy Habits That Can Keep It Strong!

Immune System - 6 Healthy Habits That Can Keep It 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 general physician.

Hey. Well it is very common now-a-days to see allergic disorders in adolescents. The best way to prevent that is to avoid any known allergies and make your immune system strong. You will have to take a good anti-allergic medicine for this for 2 weeks along with anti-oxidants. Take care dear.

I am a 43 year old male suffering from asthma since 1997. Between 2013-2015 I was regularly on high doses of steroids to manage my asthma which I have since reduced. Somewhere around that time I also developed moderate sleep apnea for which I use a CPAP machine. A slight high uric acid content was detected last year with a report from Thyrocare - about 6.9. I also had very low Vitamin D which I managed with supplements and time in the sun. I had developed IBS which I managed with high fiber diet and is now only occasional flares if I eat outside food. In the last 2-3 years my asthma has been difficult to manage but also accompanied by continuous problems of muscle weakness (repeated cramps on small effort) and bone pain. With the steroids I also have put on weight (98 kgs now at a height of 5 feet 9 inches - about 20 kgs overweight) However the body/ bone pain with water eyes and tiredness is impacting my day to day functioning. I am worried that exercising might hurt me easily by mistake so am wary of doing excessive effort. I believe my immunity is also very low which makes me susceptible to infections very quickly and then repeated cycle of wheezing/ asthma - interrupting my exercise efforts. How do I manage to work through this repeated cycle and build a better health? What can I do to improve my situation.

Treating asthma is a long treatment protocol, the best line of treatment is through panchakarma. The first line of treatment is avoidance of causative factors like food, pollen, dust etc. First identify the cause which triggers the attack in you then try to avoid the same. Treatment: you can start with tab bresol 1-0-1 (himalaya pharmacy) continue it for 1 month and then follow up.
