I am 65 years old. I suffering from cough and asthma prov. Last 2 year what I do?

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Lot many causative factors are there for shortness of breathing, an attack may be brought on by contact with substances to which the person is sensitive and emotional or dietary factors should not be overlooked. A sudden change of temperature can bring on an attack. Some alleviation of the symptoms may be obtained with the use of the appropriate tissue salts,(biochemic) cuprum ars alternate with ferrphos, kali phos and mag phos if one appears to be more effective than the others, then you may take more of it. Requires detailed questioning so as to ascertain your personality and to treat you symptomatically. Treatment is available, safe and without side effects in biochemic system of medication. Consult me in private.

Hello. Cough is due to bronchitis history. You need to take proper treatment for this. Take regular steam to reduce cough. Avoid cold things. When going out cover your mouth with cloth. Stay away from dust. You can take honey and ginger to relief from cough. For proper cure take treatment. You can consult me or any doctor to take treatment. Good luck.

Quit smoking as quickly as you can. You can take nicotex chewing gum instead of smoking. Gradually reduce the dose and stop it. You can quit smoking like that.

Hello there, for cough, take 2-2 teaspoonful of pranacharya kasantak by mixing it in hot water twice daily. Sitopaladi, praval and tankan bhasm churna taken with honey can also bring relief. Consume this 3 to 4 times a day for relief from dry cough; you can also drink tea with basil leaves or add ginger and black pepper in it. Salted hot water gargling also helps. And stay away from cold drinks and don't take milk when having cough.

Hello, hello, homeopathic remedies for asthma are very effective and can cure asthma permanently. Homeopathic medicines are natural medicines and work by moderating our immune system which usually becomes overreactive in asthma. But I need to know more symptoms related to you as a whole. So that I can make totality of symptoms and prescribe you a better medicine. In the mean time take ars alb 30, 3 drops once daily and bc no. 02, 5 tabs thrice daily. Revert me with more symptoms.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello. Bronchitis/ 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 sometime. Keep taking your already on going medication, reduce it gradually and slowly once homoeopathic starts acting. Take Bakson's Astha-Aid drops/ 10-15 drops in 1/2 cup water/ thrice d day for 1 month. Report me back after a month.

Drink plenty of warm fluids. Drinking warm fluids helps to loosen the secretions in your sinuses so that your mucus flows more freely, making you feel better faster. Studies show that drinking warm fluids relieves cold symptoms such as runny nose, cough, sneezing, sore throat, and fatigue. For further queries get back to me.

I am having cough so suggest me best medicine to get cure shortly.

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops.

My 20 year friend has asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer long-term? I heard that using it for years might cause bone shrinkage. It is true or not? Are there any vitamins or supplements to help vision?

MBBS

If steroids are given orally for long periods of time than only it will cause bone shrinkage but if given through nebulisation than it won't have any side effects

Your diet must include a glass of juice (any juice), fresh fruits and a full serving of salads at every meal: cucumber, tomato, carrot, beetroot, radish, onion slices or spring onion, raw cauliflower, cabbage leaf, sprouted seeds etc. Add other greens I hv not mentioned. All this is essential to give you a balanced nutrient boost. Cut out any junk food and aerated drinks totally. Generally foods that come out of a packet, or tin can, or bottle shud be avoided. Exercise to increase circulation:- 2 mins of hard exercise then 1 min rest - do this four times a day. You can either do it all in one go or split it into sessions through the day. In total it is only 12 mins a day so should not be a big issue. A very useful exercise is to jump in one place simulating skipping. Build up your time to 2 mins. Of jumping. The benefits of this is ungaugeable, and cannot be explained medically as yet, it effects the entire body. In conclusion, live and eat healthy and you will develop energy, a glowing skin and a healthy'go' in life -regardless of age. In todays urban atmosphere, exercise indoors unless you live in rural areas or in the hills. Otherwise buy electrical air purifiers, put it on full and exercise in front of it. Have homeo med. Kali carb 200 - 4 drops in spnfl water six times a dat.

I am 57 years old, male asthmatic and diabetic. Two months back I had an acute excaberation of bronchial asthma, which was treated by antibiotics, bronchodilators, oral steroids and inhalers ie Asthalin and Budecort. I am free from all symptoms, but I am still on inhalers, especially Budecort inhaler. Should I continue using budecort inhaler, as I sometimes feel breathless especially while lying down or during strenuous activities? Is it safe? Also, I wish to inform you that I was a heavy smoker, say 20 years back. Now I have stopped, since 5 years, and the attacks are less frequent. Now, if I feel like having a smoke, I have only one per day. I am trying my best, even to stop it. I gave up the habit by sheer will power and also due to the fact that I am asthmatic. Should I continue using inhalers, especially Budecort inhaler and if so, is it safe, considering the fact that it is a corticosteroid? Please advice.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Yes. Inhaled corticosteroids have minimal effect on blood sugar levels, although theoretically that's possible. But using inhalers will keep your lung problem in control and further exacerbation may be prevented. If you were a confirmed asthmatic and continue to smoke, then your disease may change to copd, where the broncho-constriction is irreversible and the risk of exacerbation increases, so quitting is the best way for future.

When you quit smoking you will put on weight. You need to try again and again until you succeed. It is really good that you want to stop smoking because it is really very harmful. Just the fact that you want to give up smoking is a good starting point. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.
