I can confidently say homeopathy helps asthma. Even when used alongside conventional medicine, homeopathy strengthens the immune system, allowing the person to slowly reduce medication. Please note that medication should only be reduced under the approval of a doctor, and it is dangerous to stop steroid medication suddenly as this can adversely affect the adrenal glands. I will use a case history to show how homeopathy helped Ms. X, a woman in her late thirties, who was on a very long list of asthma drugs. Often people with asthma, hay fever, allergies and eczema come from an atopic family, meaning several members of the family will suffer the same complaints. In Ms. X?s family, her mother had asthma and hay fever; as did her grandmother, and her sister plus her children all had eczema.
Homeopathy has been scientifically proven to treat hay fever just as well as conventional medicine and certainly better than placebo, without any side effects from the medication. A homeopath treats the symptoms of the hay fever, and also the entire individual, thus strengthening the immunity of the person and reducing the severity of the attacks. There are many factors behind hay fever, or any disease, and homeopathy looks to find the individual patterns and reasons for a complaint.
Hay fever is the common name applied to allergic rhinitis that recurs each year at a specific season – usually spring or fall. It is characterized by rhinorrhea, sneezing, itching of the eyes, nose, ears, and palate, and edema of the nasal mucous membranes.
Contrary to general belief that vaccines cause asthma, allergies or other chronic diseases, a new study identifies flaws in such proposed explanations. Paul A. Offit of Philadelphia rejects biological explanations for how vaccines cause chronic diseases and reviews current research on associations between vaccines and those diseases.
Homoeopathy meets successfully ever growing new challenges of diseases of newborn, infant and child.
It is getting close to allergy season again, and to most allergy sufferers freedom from this dread condition is literally nothing to sneeze at. This freedom, however, is a distant dream for many allergy sufferers. Allergies can be imprisoning.
A very big, International Homoeopathic scientific conference is being held in India, in October 2003, at the Air force auditorium, Subroto Park, New Delhi. About 600 delegates are expected to participate from India and the world over.
Researchers are using yeast to home in on the genes behind people’s adverse reactions to antibiotics. Some 5-10% of us develop symptoms ranging from harmless rashes to serious allergies or organ damage when we are treated with these.
