Wheezing, shortness of breath: possibly, Asthma
Many small children experience wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, or tightness followed by pain in the chest. They also experience seasonal allergies or seem to be affected due to weather changes. It is likely that they are suffering from asthma.
Understanding asthma and its common symptoms
Asthma is basically a common chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when the small bronchial air passages in the lungs become inflamed, partially blocked with phlegm, or stiffened due to spasm of the muscle surrounding them. The most common symptoms of asthma, as mentioned above are wheezing and shortness of breath.
Typically, the major indoor and outdoor environmental factors identified that trigger Asthma attacks include dust mites, molds, cockroaches, pet dander, ozone and particle pollution, drugs and food additives smoke.
What more should you know about Asthma?
Asthma affects all age groups and people from all walks of life. In fact, the United States Environmental Protection Agency has stated in its 2013 report that an estimated 25.9 million people, including 7.1 million children, are suffering from Asthma. Asthma and allergy both occur when a particular part of our immune system is out of balance. Allergy happens when your immune system mistakes something that is normally harmless as being a threat to you and while “protecting” you from it, creates a strong inflammatory response in your lungs, thus making it difficult for you to breathe.
Homeopathy and asthma
In many cases, a homeopathy treatment has been successful in overcoming the common symptoms of asthma. However, the effectiveness and the time taken to overcome this may vary from patient to patient, depending on various factors. Therefore, it is best to discuss one’s personal medical history in detail with a qualified and experienced homeopathy practitioner.
If you are experiencing wheezing or shortness of breath regularly, get in touch with a homeopathy consultant to discuss these symptoms and consider an an appropriate homeopathic treatment.
