What is natural and homeopathic treatment for asthma? – Part 1

• Asthma is a chronic lung condition in which inflammation of the airways or bronchi, affects the way air enters and leaves the lungs.
• This leads to disrupted breathing.
• Asthma is an ancient Greek word that meant “panting or short drawn breath.”
• It is the most troublesome of the respiratory diseases.
• People with asthma have extra sensitive or hyper responsive airways.
• The airways become narrow or obstructed when they become irritated.
• This makes it difficult for the air to move in and out.

Symptoms of Asthma

The asthma symptoms include:
– a dry, rattling cough
– an over-accumulation of mucous
– feeling as if they’re having to swallow around a golf ball-like mass in the throat
– a tickle in throat triggering a cough, especially when trying to take a deep breath
– coughing, even to the point of expelling mucous
– difficulty catching the breath, especially from exertion, or being indoors in stuffy rooms

The underlying emotional state is related to:
– sadness, loss or grief
– loss of trust
– disappointment
– irritability

The narrowing or obstruction of the airways is caused by:
• Airway inflammation
• Broncho-constriction
• Lack of exercise
• Genetic factors
• Dietary changes
• Occupational exposure

Environmental factors like:
• Dust
• Cigarette smoke
• Fumes
• House dust mites
• Pollen
• Medicines
• Certain other allergic foods

Dietary Measures for Asthma

1. Yellow fruits
• Yellow colored fruits and vegetables are rich in beta carotene and anti oxidants.
• Both aid in the correct functioning of the lungs.
• Spinach, papaya, berries are good sources of beta carotene and anti oxidants.
• Hence they should be included in good quantities in all meals.

2. Spicy foods
• Hot foods also kill bacteria
• Eating spicy foods like peppers, jalapeno and chilies helps to get rid of the unwanted bacteria.
• The heat also helps the congested mucus to become thin.

3. Enzyme rich food
• This type of food can break down your phlegm.
• Therefore enzyme rich foods like kiwi and pineapple should be taken.
• This will help the mucous to be broken down and eliminated.
