Homoeopathy is synonymous to Hyposensitization or Desensitization.
In Asthma, Patient is suffering with individual over sensitivity and
what we need is desensitization or Hyposensitization to get rid of
symptoms and disease as a whole. For Hyposensitization Homoeopathic
medicine should have minimal quantity of similar drug substance and the
medicine should not be deprived of the basic crude drug substance.
does not mean that Homoeopathic medicines in higher dilutions do not
work in Asthma cases. Constitutional Homoeopathic medicine in higher
potencies improves or modifies the susceptibility of Sick, Means it
reduces the tendencies of a living being to be over effected by certain
things which can hardly make any impression in other healthy living
For the development of Asthma and other sickness there must be
more than one cause such as genetic tendencies, thermal telluric
chemical biological injuries, environmental pollution, faulty unnatural
living habits etc. Each of above factors needs special attention in
Asthma and other diseases to attain total cure or maximum amelioration
In case of respiratory tract allergy you must note following points:
1. Avoid exposure to exterme variation of temperature in all conditions, Use nothing hot in cold weather and nothing cold in hot weather.
Variation of more than 20 degrees centigrade of Temperature causes
immunological injury to life force and causes over-sensitisation of
living being. Due to this over-sensitisation, body over-reacts to
allergens (which can hardly make any impact on normal human being
otherwise) and results in allergic diseases like sneezing and running
2. Avoid Rice (in Northern Planes of India and Pakistan), Banana and Colocassia (Arvi).
3. Regular symptom limited exercise is must (As per age of Patient).
4. Avoid all Pain Killar
and fever pills such as Salicilic Acid (Aspirin-Disprin), Paracetamol
(Crocin), Nemuselide (Nemulid, Nice), Ibuprofen (Brufen, Combiflam
etc.). All such type of medicines causes bronchospasm (constriction of
air passage) and lead to asthma.
5. Slight running nose and sneezing in asthmatic patients ameliorates their difficulty in breathing. Do not suppress unneccessarily these sign and symptoms.
