Homeopathy for asthma

Manage your asthma better with safe and effective homeopathic remedies, usually in conjunction with your conventional medicines.

Asthma can be triggered by allergies and a variety of environmental factors including lifestyle choices, weather, and workplace conditions. Homeopathic remedies offer relief for these upper respiratory symptoms associated with asthma
• Bronchospasms
• Chronic inflammation of the air passages leading to the lungs, often aggravated by air pollution, allergens, exercise, and weather conditions
• Coughing
• Shortness of breath
• Tight feeling in chest
• Wheezing

Avoiding your known asthma triggers—both allergens AND the environmental and lifestyle factors within your control—can help you prevent an asthma episode but it will not cure your asthma. Continuing a course of homeopathic treatment for your asthma’s underlying cause can free you from symptoms and from dependency on inhalers.

In case of a severe asthma episode, use your rescue inhaler and seek medical attention according to the protocol you have established with your care team.

The best all-around remedies for asthma are
Antimonium tartaricum for a rattling cough with difficult-to-expectorate mucus
Arsenic album for cough and wheezing where symptoms are worse at night and are accompanied by anxiety
Spongia tosta for a dry, suffocative, and persistent cough

and for children’s asthma
Ipecac for a cough that ends in gagging and vomiting
Natrum sulph for chronic cough that worsens in hot humid weather
Sambucus nigra for cough with sniffles and profuse perspiration

The following are recommended for specific kinds of asthma
• Asthma triggered by humid or wet weather - Dulcamara and Natrum sulphuricum
• Asthma triggered by winter weather - Nux vomica
• Asthma triggered by dust particles - Blatta orientalis and Bromium
• Asthma related to aging - Carbo veg and Senega
• Asthma triggered by allergies – should be treated on a case-by-case basis
• Asthma with only a cough - Coccus cacti and Drosera rotundifolia
• Asthma triggered by cold air - Aconitum napellus
• Asthma characterized by a skin rash - Arsenic album
• Asthma triggered by exercise - Arnica and Coca
• Smoker’s asthma - Arsenic album and Lobelia inflata
• Asthma triggered by acid reflux - Carbo veg and Nux vomica
• Asthma that occurs only at night - Arsenic album, Grindelia, and Sambucus nigra

You can’t control the weather and its effect on your breathing, but you can control how you manage your asthma. Talk to your homeopath about the homeopathic remedies that will address your symptoms and the root cause(s) of your asthma before you experience another asthma episode.
