I am 23 year old, and have very bad asthma problem. Tried many sort of treatment but switched again back to inhalers. Was having problem of eczema & childhood which was treated through allopathic treatment at that time I didn't had asthma problem. But later after shifting to kerala my asthma problem started & used to take inhalers. Wen I was 17 I went for Ayurveda treatment with so much of restricted time table for certain food items for 2 year & I got better at initial stage I got all my allergy on my skin which so hard but doctor was saying thats to get cured with it. & only if I cure the inner allergy I would get better of asthma. I was so thin at that time & we I started curing asthma I also had put on my weight n was happy to get changed with better immunity. But suddenly I got a throat infection which really was under treated n he strictly advised not to take antibiotics which made it return frequently n I had developed a swelling on my leg n wen I went through a blood test I got aso titre so high. Which made me discontinue his treatment n I started taking pencillin400 n reduced d doses n now cured it completely but my asthma had returned severely. Then another blood test developed d problem of hypothyroidism. I started taking thyrox 150 n now d dose of 50. For this after 2 yrs I consulted a homeo doctor which was a nightmare for me as he said asthma is linked with thyroid problem n asked if I had any skin problem I said before I had he then prescribed some medicines n wid in a few days I got a bad itching on my fingers ful flare ups whole over my body oozing n weeping legs n hands I cant even sleep at night due to itching n that doctor was sounding angrily wen I saying my problem. N after 6 months also I dint cured n again went for an allopathic dermatologist n cured it. I just want to know if thyroid n asthma problem is linked n is it compulsory dat if I take treatment for asthma in Ayurveda or homeopathy I will have to face a tough time for my skin. Please doctors do reply. I really want to take your advice n go a head for treatment. Can hypothyroidism can b cured. N asthma also with out a flare ups n allergy break out?
