Bronchial Asthma - Causes, Symptoms & Treatment Of It!

Bronchial asthma or plain asthma is a disease of the lungs and respiratory tract that causes inflammation and later problems in breathing properly. The disease is allergic in nature. In India, the prevalence of bronchial asthma in children aged between 5-11 years is about 10-15%.

The symptoms: How do you know if you have bronchial asthma?

Identifying the symptoms of bronchial asthma help you find out if you have it. If you encounter these symptoms, you should immediately consult a doctor. The symptoms are as follows-

• Periodic rounds of coughing
• A cough that interferes with your lifestyle (for example, not letting you get enough sleep at night)
Wheezing and sneezing
• Chest blockage
Shortness of breath
• An uncomfortable feeling of tightness in the torso region

These symptoms can cause enough discomfort to chronic sufferers of the disease, and the attacks or rounds are triggered by a variety of factors.

What causes bronchial asthma?

Bronchial asthma attacks may be triggered by many factors, and it is impossible to determine which exact one caused it in a specific person. These factors are-

  • Smoking, even in a passive form
  • Acid refluxes in the body
  • Frequent oscillation of the surrounding climate of an individual between extremely hot and extremely cold
  • Air pollutants, which can irritate the nasal canal of the body
  • Common allergy triggers like pollen and mould
  • Excessive stress, mental pain or anxiety

How can Homeopathy help with the treatment of bronchial asthma?

  • Homoeopathy remedies are very effective in treating bronchial asthma. Homoeopathy medicines, which are prepared from natural substances and extracts of plants, animal bodies, rock salts and minerals, work by improving the immune system.
  • Homoeopathy believes in curing the ailment from within. This means the natural remedies and medicines aim to identify the root cause of the disorder and eliminate the same by building your immunity.
  • Although there are certain anti-allergic drugs to keep risks associated with asthma attacks at bay, they come with many side effects. Many times, your health condition may get worse when the medications leave severe side effects on the body. Unlike conventional treatment, homoeopathy follows a holistic approach and permanently cures the condition without adversely affecting your health.

Bronchial asthma is a rather common disease that can significantly hamper your lifestyle if you do not take the correct treatment approach. Homoeopathy can work wonders to relieve you from the symptoms of the condition, and also prevent its recurrence. Do check in with your doctor for constant advice.
