Mother is suffering from thyroid and asthma what food recommend. With this whether.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Mother is suffering from thyroid and asthma what food recommend. With this whether.
She as to avoid cold foods and only warm foods and water .Continue medication One of the easiest ways to support thyroid function is to make sure that the body has nutrient-dense sources of energy. While many diets and weight loss programs tell us that sugar makes us fat or that the body does not need carbohydrates to be healthy, we know that health is all about balance! At Body Ecology, we encourage each other to practice the Principle of 80/20. This means that while 80% of a meal is made up of fermented vegetables, non-starchy vegetables, and sea vegetables, we suggest that the remaining 20% of a meal is: A starchy vegetable A grain-like seed such as quinoa, millet, buckwheat, or amaranth An animal protein such as meat, eggs, or fermented dairy Fruit is another source of glucose that is also brimming with antioxidants and phytonutrients. When just starting out on the Body Ecology Diet, make sure to stick with sour fruits, such as: Lemons Limes Berries Kiwi Grapefruit Green apples During the fall season and early winter, sour fruits like green apples, cranberries, and pomegranates are easy to find. They combine best with a protein fat, such as fermented dairy or nuts. Or, simply enjoy fruit alone and on an empty stomach.

Is Homeopathy The Best Option To Treat Asthma?

Is Homeopathy The Best Option To Treat Asthma?

Asthma is a common breathing problem that many people face. There are different types of asthma, but the two major ones are allergies occurring due to occupational hazards. Asthma is treatable with puffs and regular check-ups. One needs to ensure that the blood pressure and stress levels are low so that they do not aggravate the condition further. Medicines and puffs are the two common treatment methods when it comes to asthma. But have you wondered whether asthma can be treated using homeopathy? Many patients have approached homeopathic doctors for treating their asthmatic problems through an alternate form of medicine.

Here are some ways of treating Asthma with Homeopathy.

General line of treatment: Homeopathy, as it is understood, tries to cure the problem instead of providing momentary relief. Thus, while trying to diagnose the causes and come up with an effective remedy, the homeopath would not only take down details of your asthma and allergies but also that of your family and their medical history. At times, it is genetic and can have its causes and remedies linked to the family’s medical history.

In addition, the homeopath would be of the opinion that any disease first manifests itself through the less vital organs like the skin. But if its manifestation is somehow suppressed, then it spreads to the vital organs like the lungs and the heart. Thus, having a record of the skin diseases is also crucial in treating asthma.

At times, in children, it is seen that asthma is preceded by eczema. In fact, while continuing with the homeopathic treatment after the asthma is cured, eczema reappears for sometime. This process is called reversal of symptoms and is actually a good sign of healing. Eczema ultimately disappears after a while leaving no traces of asthma and the skin disease on the formerly affected individual.

Medicines: Homeopathic treatment also requires the doctor to prescribe some medicines to the patients. This is done only after taking note of one’s medical history, specific allergies, family medical history and other important details. These medicines do not have any side effects as they are naturally sourced. Some of these medicines are spongia, ignatia and ipecac.

Thus, asthma is very much treatable using the homeopathic course of treatment. If homeopathy suits you as a form of treatment, then it is the natural and best way to treat any medical problem that you are suffering from.

Please go for herbal neem shampoo. Use shikakai and amla as conditioner (soak amla and shikakai in water overnight and boil a little in morning). Apply it on hairs. Keep for half an hour and then wash. It will condition the hairs. Avoid using comb in wet hairs.

What is the difference between asthma and chronic cough. How to get diagnosed with asthma.

MBBS
General Physician,
Both are more or less interrelated. Chronic cough or bronchitis is also associated with breathing difficulties along with cough and cold. In brochial asthmasthere are a already predisposing factor like difficulty in breathing with a whimgical sound wheezing out of lungs while attack which is vocational. Asthmaasthma is errespective of seasonal. Clical examination and xray will confirm the diagnosis.

Role of Ayurveda in Treating Asthma

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), modern diagnostics
Ayurveda,
Role of Ayurveda in Treating Asthma

Asthma is a common disease, characterized by the inflammation of the airways. These airways are responsible for the passage of air and therefore their inflammation causes shortness of breath and extreme discomfort. Though different branches of medicines have tried in their own ways to deal with this problem, Ayurveda with its emphasis on natural remedies has emerged as a clear favorite. According to Ayurveda, it is the stomach that is the source of all chronic diseases. The science believes that as impurities accumulate in our system, diseases like asthma come to the fore.

The different ways by which Ayurveda treats asthma are:

  1. Maintaining a proper diet: Since stomach is identified as the source of most diseases, any attempt to treat them should begin from the stomach itself. Ayurveda believes that those foods, which are easy to digest, inevitably helps in relieving you from the bouts of asthma. The concept that operates behind this is that easily digestible food provides nutrients, which are further absorbed by the tissues. This helps in rebuilding the strong strength as well as keeps the stomach in a sound condition.
  2. Herbal oil massage: A daily massage with herbal oil has always proved to have an extremely soothing and a calming effect on your system. Ideally the massage should be performed before taking a bath as it increases the blood circulation and pacify the nervous system.
  3. Exercise: Ayurveda is perhaps the only branch of medicine that gives equal priority to medications as well as exercises. It is believed that stretching and those exercises that facilitate flexibility can markedly reduce bouts of asthma. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
