I am an asthma patient since childhood but everything is under good control. I only need to take asthalin inhaler after March for a month or so when we start removing woolens and I start getting attacks but as soon as I get the feel of getting attack, before only I inhale one puff and I am able to prevent the attack. Occasionally when it does not improve, I take seroflo one or two puffs. If that also does not help only then I consult a doctor for oral medication dose. Generally in a year I must not be taking more than 20 puffs in all. Is there anything wrong in my approach? I do not want to take too many medicines and want to heal by taking precautions. Please suggest if there is anything I should be knowing regarding my problem in a long run considering the way I am handling my problem. Thank you.

You are handiling well. My advice to you do pranayam will help you lot. You take shwasni avalh 1 spoon in morning empty stomatch after 30 monuties take breakfast end in night after dinner if you take 6 month you will not get attacks early. Cost is also very economical take as a tonic for lungs. After taking 1/2spoon keep in mouth 30 second it melt thsn intake like this second 1/2spoon also do not take water for 30 monuties. If you gets relife report to me after 3 month.

Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the tissue lining the sinuses. Normally, sinuses are filled with air. But when they become blocked and filled with fluid, germs (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) can grow and cause an infection. Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include the common cold, allergic rhinitis (swelling of the lining of the nose), nasal polyps (small growths in that lining), or a deviated septum (a shift in the nasal cavity). Homoeopathic constitutional treatment will give you permanent cure, your detailed symptomatology will be required.

Dear lybrate-user, is it only enlarged tonsils or infected as well. If only enlarged without symptoms then don't worry. If there is repeated tonsil infection at age of 58, then its high time to consult a homeopath as there is urticaria/ allegic nature of disease. Even after taking montec lc.

For people suffering from respiratory allergies and infections, steam inhalation should be followed as a routine. Even when you are well, taking steam for 5-10 min twice a week will ward off many potential episodes of illness.

You maybe suffering from allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.
