I have a asthma problem how to control it? And how to clear the scars in my skin?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear Mr Vijay....asthma is clinically classified into cardiac asthma and bronchial asthma.... If you are feeling breathlessness every time after heavy work then you may be suffering from Cardiac asthma. In this case you need to take Homeopathic Mother Tincture ASPIDOSPERMA Q, 30 drops in water, thrice daily after meals.... If you have bronchial asthma then you would suffer from asthma only when you will be suffering from cough and cold. For bronchial asthma you may take Homeopathic Mother Tincture BLATTA ORIENTALIS Q, 30 drops in water, thrice daily after meals Also you need to conduct a blood test for TC, DC, ESR. In maximum cases it is seen that the eosinophil level in blood remain elevated than normal level in asthmatic patients. If your Eosinophil reveals to be higher than normal level then take Homeopathic PYROGEN 1M, 5 drops, thrice daily in empty stomach for 15 days. It will surely render your eosinophil level to normal count

Pt on akt treatment which is helpful. Pulmonary tuberculosis is curable if taking proper treatment, and proper diet, and regular checkups. The cough, asthma, fever are part of tb. Don't take cold water. Cold food.

Irrevocable cold and cough when exposed to the external atmosphere and allergic to dust and pollen. Suggest a measure to get rid of this.

MS - ENT,MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Kolkata
Dust allergy is partly genetic and partly environmental. Thus it never goes away. With better, less dusty environment  the extent if the problem gets reduced. Medicines help to downregulate the immune response of your body to these environmental allergens. Long term lifestyle  changes with gradually tapering medication  helps to tackle chronic sinus problems.  Start taking Steam inhalation twice a day. *For chronic allergic rhinosinusitis you will need to take a long term course of antibiotics  together  with Nasal sprays. *You will need to avoid dusty environment  and dust mites, animal dander etc. Regular cleaning of AC air filters. Wearing mask while driving 2 wheelers/working in dusty  areas Medical  management  is done for 3 months and then patients  condition is reviewed.  Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run. Hope this helps

Dear lybrate-user, there's no scientific evidence of figs reducing intensity or incidence of asthma. But it can surely help smoother bowel movement as an advantage!

Hi. I am 46 years old male. Whenever I wake up in morning I sneeze a lot and have running nose. I, most of the times, found my nostrils blocked. I have to use otrivin for relief. While climbing stairs or walking, for instance, carrying my daughter, I am not able to breath properly so Doctor has diagnosed that I have asthma and I have to take rotacap 400 capsule almost daily. What do you suggest. Thanks in advance.

You may continue rota caps gorgeous some time to see the response. For your nasal allergy you may try combinase aq nasal spray twice daily for some time.

I am a student I have asthma in child and so many disturb in my life so in this case fully cleared.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, bronchitis/ asthma can be treated well 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.

Homoeopathic treatment aconite napellus 200 (dr. Reckeweg) drink 5 drops in 1 spoon fresh water twice daily alpha t. S drops (wilmar schwab india) drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 time daily aconite napellus 200 ----during acute anxious state of mind start take aconite 200 1-2 drop direct on tongue every 5-10 minutes until symptoms subsides. Sahil, the above medicines will help you 100% but I want that you adopt naturopathy in your life style nd for that I will recommend you to do bhramari pranayam daily morning as this pranayam is a very good tress burster nd relieve you from anxiety related problems. 1. Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing 2. Place your thumbs in your ears, your index fingers above your eyebrows, and your remaining along the sides of your nose. Keep each little finger near a nostril 3. Breath in deeply through the nose. First, feel the diaphragm move down, allowing the lungs to expand and forcing the abdomen out; then feel your chest expand with your collar bones rising last. 4. Use your little fingers to partially close each nostril. Keep your lungs filled. 5. Breathe out through the nose while humming. Note that the humming sound should originate in your throat, not as a result of your partially-blocked nostrils. 6. Repeat three times.

What medications are best for the treatment of asthma? what are their side effects?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
No doubt ayurveda provides you the bestest treatment for asthma. If ayurvedic herbs are used properly in a proper dose, there is no negative effect on the body. A good diet is an important part of your overall asthma treatment plan. Just like regular exercise, a healthy diet is good for everyone. That goes for people with asthma too. According to ayurveda, the asthma of recent origin can be treated effectively but if it becomes chronic, it can only be managed. It is not the drug alone that can give relief from asthma but regulation of diet and the change of conceptual thinking can also play a great role. Along with proper ayurvedic medication and control over eating and living, asthmatics can get better and quick results. During an acute attack, a hot chest and shoulder pack, repeatedly given every half an hour, will have a sedative effect upon the nerves and a relaxing influence generally, giving the quickest and most satisfactory relief. Hot milk or hot water when sipped little by little, provides immediate relief from the attack. The inhalation of steam-laden air may be provided by using an ordinary teakettle, attaching a funnel to the spout, and inhaling from the upper wide end of the cone. Mustard oil (sarason) is a good remedy. Take a spoonful with jaggery, twice a day. Only the use of pippalee (piper longum) powder along with pure honey, makes an attack of asthma subside. There are thousand s of remedy. Go for a proper ayurveda treatment as early as possible.

Keep him away from oily, junk, spicy food. Add green leafy vegetables and fresh fruit in his diet. Avoid exposure to extreme weather. Make a habit to give more protein e. G. Soyabean, sprouts, nuts, pulses etc. Increase the water intake. Give 1 tsf chyawanprash daily with milk to boost up his immunity.
