Homeopathic medicines for Asthma

Understanding Asthma

Asthma is a chronic respiratory disorder. In asthma, the airways of the lungs get inflamed. Due to this inflammation, there is swelling inside the airways. This also causes excess production of mucous. The combined effect of swelling and mucous production is that the passage of air gets obstructed. This makes breathing difficult.

A whistling sound or wheezing is often heard in such patients. Often the patient gets cough due to this obstruction of the airways. This cough is a reflex of the body to get rid of the excess mucous in the airways. A sense of tightness or heaviness is felt in the chest. One cannot expand the chest fully while inhaling.

Symptoms of Asthma

  • The common symptoms of asthma are wheezing in the chest, cough and breathlessness. These three symptoms are characteristic of asthma.
  • As mentioned earlier, one tends to cough in order to remove the impediment in breathing. The cough only partially removes the excess mucous and is unable to clear the airways.
  • A whistling sound is heard while breathing. This sound, known as wheezing may even be loud enough to be heard by others sitting nearby.
  • Sense of heaviness in the chest is also common. This heaviness is aggravated while walking or running or climbing upstairs. At times, even talking is difficult.

Asthma treatment in Homeopathy- Natural Homeopathic remedies for Asthma

When it comes to the treatment of Asthma, Homeopathy is much better at treating asthma. It is in stark contrast to allopathy, where inhalers and steroids are used to suppress inflammation.

Homeopathic medicines do not aim at just reducing inflammation. They also intend to cure the basic cause of the recurrent inflammation. This way, not only the symptoms of asthma are treated but the incidence of asthmatic attacks is completely eliminated.

I have had patients coming to me who had been using inhalers or steroids for decades. They could not live without them. With a couple of months of Homeopathic treatment, they are able to live a disease free and medicine free life.

It is worthwhile to mention here that all Homeopathic remedies are natural and do not contain any chemicals. That is why these purely natural homeopathic remedies do not have any side effects at all.

5 best Homeopathic medicines for asthma

When it comes to the usage of the homeopathic medicines for asthma, there are a number of medicines that are used for treating Asthma, both in the acute phase and also chronic asthma. On the basis of my experience in the treatment of asthma, I have compiled a list of 5 best homeopathic medicines for asthma.

Here are the 5 best Homeopathic medicines for Asthma –

  • Arsenic Album- best homeopathic medicine for asthma with anxiety

  • Ipecac – best homeopathy medicine for asthma with nausea and vomiting

  • Antim Tart –  best in homeopathy for asthmatic cough with rattling in chest

  • Nux Vomica – best asthma homeopathic medicine with gastric disturbance

  • Carbo Veg -best homeopathic remedy for asthma with bluish face

These homeopathic medicines for asthma are perfectly capable of handling the acute phase as well as chronic asthma. A brief description of the symptoms of the above mentioned homeopathic medicines is being given below-

1. Arsenic Album – One of the best Homeopathic medicines for asthma with anxiety 

There is intense restlessness and anxiety with cough and wheezing. He is unable to find a comfortable position and keeps tossing and turning around. Thirst is increased but drinks a little at a time. Asthma is worse at midnight. Lying down is difficult as he is unable to breathe and feels suffocated. Therefore, the patient has to sit up in bed.

The trouble is aggravated in cold air and with change of weather. At the same time, the patient feels better after drinking warm drinks. There is pain in the upper right chest. Expectoration is scanty and often frothy. The air passages tend to feel restricted.

2. Ipecac- One of the best Homeopathic remedies for asthma with nausea and vomiting

In case vomiting is present with asthmatic attacks, Ipecac is one of the best homeopathic remedies for asthma. There is persistent nausea, so much so that he may feel nauseated most of the time. At times, this nausea may not be relieved even after vomiting.

The chest seems to be loaded with mucous. There is rattling cough. Cough is present but does not help in reducing the mucous load. Trouble is aggravated in hot and humid weather. This medicine is indicated much more in children and adults who are a little fat. The mouth is mostly moist and there is too much of salivation. The tongue is usually clean and is not coated.

3. Antim Tart- One of the best Homeopathic medicines for asthma with rattling

In cases where there is rattling cough as if chest is full of loose mucous, Antim Tart is one of the best homeopathic medicines for asthma. There is little expectoration of mucous. The cough is triggered by eating. There is drowsiness and weakness. It is more suited to old people and young children.

The patient feels weak and sleepy. There is burning feeling in the chest and in some cases, there is a sensation of something velvety inside the chest. This burning sensation may ascend to the throat. Often, there is hoarseness of voice accompanying the other symptoms of asthma. The cough often increases after eating anything. The breathlessness is often relieved by eructations. At the same time, the cough is better by lying on the right side.

4. Nux Vomica- One of the best Homeopathic medicines for asthma from gastric disturbance

In cases where the asthmatic attack is triggered by gastric disturbance, Nux Vomica is one of the best homeopathic medicines for asthma. The problem is likely to be worse in the morning. There is sense of fullness in the stomach along with asthma. There is dry and hacking cough. Getting angry brings on an attack of asthma. The problem is worse in winters.

There is a sensation of scraping in the throat. Along with the respiratory symptoms, the stomach seems full and heavy, more so in the morning or after eating. There is cough with a sensation as if there is something being torn inside the chest. At the same time, the cough causes headache or a bruised pain in the epigastric or the stomach region.

5. Carbo Veg- One of the best Homeopathic medicines for asthma with blueness of face

When the face of the patient becomes bluish along with an asthmatic attack, Carbo Veg is one of the best homeopathic medicines for asthma. There is coldness of the hands and feet. Stomach troubles may accompany the respiratory symptoms. The problem is worse in the evening and by talking or lying down.

There is cough with itching in the larynx or the voice box. There is hoarseness of the voice which is worse in the evening. The voice becomes deep and rough which tends to fail on the slightest exertion. The breath is cold and he wants to be fanned.

N.B Homeopathic medicines are very safe and do not have any side effects when taken under the supervision of an expert homeopathic doctor.

  19. Sir,
    I would have been happiest if my child’s asthma-rhinitis-eczema could be cured by homeopathy.I have taken homeo treatment for him for last 4+ yrs. My reliance was not blind;in fact I myself got rid of my chronic diarrhea and chronic laryngitis for last 30+yrs. Very recently too my piles(not chronic but acute) was cured within just 2 weeks’ treatment by a homeo doctor.
    But unfortunately in my child’s case one of the best homeo clinic’s in Delhi has been only partially successful treating my child’s combined problem, Rhinitis has come well under control; but asthma and eczema have been remaining active even during their treatment of more than 3+ yrs. That clinic advised not to use allopathy medicine as far as possible and during their 3+ yrs of treatment we used asthalin for just 3 or 4 times and no steroid at all. But these two allergies have again come to trouble after we have shifted to Chandigarh. We shifted to the City Beautiful Chandigarh to avoid heavy pollution of Delhi for sake of my son.But this shifting seems to have backfired and asthma and eczema have reappeared with a vegence.Anyway, here also I have consulted a reputed Homeo Clinic.But surprisingly here the Doctor has advised us to consult an allopathy consultant too simultaneously.

    I have read a number of times from varied sources how allopathy medicine hampers effects of homeo remedies.But here the opinion is totally different.I am confused and decided to visit PGIMER Paediatric department while continuing with the homeopath. The present homeopath has recently shown us a tremendous result in a recent eczema flare up and a viral infection in my son within a very short span of treatment.
