Bronchial Asthma, or commonly known as ‘asthma’, is a persistent inflammatory disease and affects the airways in the human body. It is caused by a number of genetic and environmental factors. Several hostile elements in the air such as pollen, dust mites, exhaustion during exercise, stress or tobacco smoke can trigger an asthma attack. Symptoms of bronchial asthma, and their extent, vary from person to person. Common symptoms are:
- Prolonged coughing
- Tightness in chest
- Shortness of breath
How efficiently we process the food consumed in our body is strongly dependent on how we provide and process oxygen in the body. In cases of bronchial asthma, breathing is affected and balanced respiration is hampered.
Naturopath provides alternate healing solutions to the patients suffering from asthma. Naturopathy uses natural methods and dietary regulations to improve a patient’s metabolism to fight allergies and prevent the triggers associated with the onset of an attack.
- Diet Therapy is essential and works not only towards a balanced diet, but is also careful to eliminate all food related allergens in its course.
- Yoga and other breathing exercises are advised to be undertaken during early morning hours.
- Massage therapy ensures that the body receives due rest and vital oxygen is effectively absorbed and is supported by blood circulation enhancing massages.
- Mud therapy helps to absorb gases, dirt or other impurities that may reside in the skin pores and helps to keep allergic reactions at bay.
Hydrotherapy is effective in reducing gas, bloatin, improves blood circulation and tissue health. Drinking plenty of water and having a healthy sleep cycle can contribute significantly in improving, and finally, curing bronchial asthma.
