Hi asthma it will be the result of long lasting allergy especially always in upper respiratory tract like sneezing, dust allergy, tonsillitis, nasal dripping, mainly due to deviated nasal septum which reduces lung capacity and causes spasm in bronchioles. So these initial symptoms if it is not treated earlier may manifest as bronchial asthma. Mainly it start with seasonal rhinitis (nasal drip or sneezing etc) so you can take this combination for first 11days1) dasamoolakatutrayam kwatha (200ml)+vasaristam100ml+kanakasavam100ml+kasturi kalparasayam114ml+punarnavasavam100ml+15swasanandam tablet and15dhanwantaram tablet mix all and crush two tablets 15each in abig bottle and drink it 20ml thrice daily after food 2) take agasthya rasayanam 1tsp with 1tsp rajanyadi choornam early morning b/w6- 7am empty stomach only. Repeat the same for another 11days and then do slight pugation once in a week for internal of two week. And then take only same rasayan and chyawanaprasam daily 1tsp twice.

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.

Ayurvedic medicines are best to treat asthma in long term..They have no side effects. B/w try these remedies... Take 11 guava leaves, 11 black pepper, 1 cup milk and one cup water. Put all of them in pot and boil it well, when it reduced to one cup, drink in empty stomach. Take this daily for at least six months or a year. 2.Boil cumin seeds in water and inhale the steam. It helps dilate the bronchial passage. 3.Take 5 gm of ginger, black pepper, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, turmeric and 30 gm of sugar. Grind the mix to a powder. Take half to one teaspoonful and mix it nicely with honey. Take it twice a day 4.Pulses like old rice (rice which is stored for at least one year is called old), wheat, barley, kulattha, mung beans, arhar beans, etc . should be consumed. 5.Honey, warm drinks like herbal teas, spice teas are also okay. 6.Sprouts, nuts and seeds can be taken in moderate amount. 7.The heavy foods and those which make ama should be avoided. This mainly includes milk products like cheese, curd, butter milk, creams, and banana, etc. 8.Oily, greasy and fried foods which are difficult to digest should be avoided. 9.White flour and white sugar products should be avoided. 10.In addition, try to avoid the cold foods, cold drinks and other refrigerated things. 11.Avoid excessive or physically demanding exercise.

Whenever I start cleaning my house that day night I feel lot of difficulty in breathing. I'm not able to sleep and I feel my lungs are blocked. I consulted a doctor locally.

Asthma cannot be cured completely. 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.

Rush to a hospital and take x ray. You could be having tuberculosis or cancer or something serious. Rarely an ordinary cause like worms is also found. But any coughing with blood means you must investigate yourselves. It's urgent.
