HOMOEOPATHY FOR ASTHMA
The symptoms of asthma include coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath as a result of your airways becoming narrowed, swollen, and overflowing with mucus.
When it comes to daily activities and the potential for life-threatening asthma attacks, some people’s asthma is a minor annoyance, while for others it can be a serious issue.
Although the exact cause of why some people develop asthma while others do not is unknown, it is most likely a result of a combination of environmental and genetic (inherited) factors.
The signs and symptoms of asthma can be brought on by exposure to a variety of irritants and substances that cause allergies (allergens), which vary from person to person and can include:
Pollen, dust mites, mold spores, pet dander, and cockroach waste are examples of airborne contaminants.
Infections of the respiratory system, like the common cold
· Physical activity (exercise-induced asthma)
· Cold air
Air irritants like smoke and pollutants
Some drugs, such as beta blockers, aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, and other brands), and naproxen (Aleve),
· Strong emotions and stress
Shrimp, dried fruit, processed potatoes, beer, and wine are just a few examples of the foods and beverages that have sulfites and preservatives added to them.
GERD, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease, causes stomach acids to reflux into your throat.
Symptoms – Depending on the individual, you may experience asthma attacks only occasionally, only occasionally (for example, when you exercise), or constantly.
Among the symptoms and signs of asthma are:
· Shortness of breath
· Chest tightness or pain
Sleep issues brought on by coughing, wheezing, or shortness of breath
wheezing, which is a common symptom of asthma in children, when exhaling
Coughing or wheezing episodes exacerbated by a respiratory virus, such as the flu or a cold
Here are some indicators that your asthma may be getting worse:
Increased frequency and discomfort of asthma symptoms
a rise in breathing difficulty (measurable with a peak flow meter, a tool for evaluating the health of your lungs)
The requirement for more frequent use of a quick-relief inhaler
Some people experience flare-ups of their asthma symptoms and signs in particular circumstances:
·Exercise-induced asthma,which could possibly worsen if the air was cold and dry.
·Occupational asthma,aggravated at work by irritants like dust, gases, or chemical fumes
·Allergy-induced asthma,triggered by airborne irritants like pollen, mold spores, cockroach droppings, or dried saliva and skin fragments from pets (pet dander).
Homeopathic medicines are natural medicines that work by regulating our immune system, which typically becomes overreactive in asthma. Homeopathic remedies for asthma are very effective and can permanently cure asthma.

ARSENIC ALB. 30-It is recommended when attacks are frequent at night (midnight and after), accompanied by great restlessness and fear of suffocating when lying down. Homeopathic Medicine Arsenic Album is one of the best homeopathic remedies for all forms of asthma. It is helpful both in the acute phase and the chronic state.
