Beating Asthma the Natural Way

Asthma is one of the largest causes of illness in Australia and affects both children and adults. There is no medical cure for asthma – if the disease does not resolve itself then medications need to be taken to control the symptoms. So what if there was a solution that could help your own body to rid itself of asthma?

Our naturopaths have helped lots of patients to manage their asthma and reduce the need for steroids and other medications. There are lots of herbs and nutrients that can help to reduce use of puffers and improve quality of life for patients with asthma.

Asthma occurs due to an over reaction by the immune system, usually triggered by something, most commonly being a cold, exercise, change in temperature or weather conditions or dust. These factors lead to inflammation in the airways which causes a narrowing of the bronchioles, leading to difficulty breathing and wheezing.

Can naturopathy help with asthma?

Naturopathic treatment of asthma involves using both herbal medicines and nutritional supplements that help to modulate the immune system and reduce the inflammatory response associated with asthmatic attacks. This type of treatment is very effective, and patients usually will report some reduction in symptoms within two weeks.

Dietary changes can also help. Reducing dairy and sugars can help to reduce asthmatic symptoms, as can ensuring that you eat foods which are high in vitamin C and bioflavonoids such as berries, kiwifruit, pineapple, capsicum, onions and citrus fruit and peel.

Naturopathic treatment of asthma is safe in children and babies, who respond very well to treatment within a short period of time.
