Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is asthma?

Asthma is a respiratory disease characterized by episodes of cough, wheezing, tightness of chest and shortness of breath. In asthma, there is chronic inflammation of airways (bronchi and bronchioles). Airways are the tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs. In asthmatic persons, these airways are highly sensitive and respond strongly to inhaled substances such as allergens. This leads to bronchospasms (constriction of muscles around the airways). As a result of the inflammation and bronchospasms, the airways get obstructed, leading to reduced air flow to the lungs and other symptoms mentioned above. Asthma can occur at any age, but most frequently appears in childhood or early adulthood.

2. Is asthma genetic, what are its causes?

The exact cause of asthma is still a matter of study though genetic and environmental factors together are known to play a role in the etiology of asthma. Allergens such as pollen, animal dander, dust mites can set off asthma; air pollutants, exercise, certain medicines like aspirin, beta blockers, smoking and gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), cold and humid weather can cause asthma.

3. How do I know I have asthma?

Characteristic symptoms that point towards asthma include episodes of cough, chest wheezing, chest tightness and shortness of breath. Allergies could be a symptom. Spirometry and peak flow meter test aid diagnosis.

4. What are the various types of asthma?

There are various types of asthma based on the related cause. These include allergic asthma, occupational asthma, cough variant asthma, exercise induced asthma, medication induced asthma and nocturnal asthma. Allergic asthma refers to asthma attacks triggered by allergens like pollen, pet dander etc. Occupational asthma is asthma that arises from exposure to some substance at the workplace. Some examples of occupation induced asthma are seen in chemical workers, welders, cotton factory workers and coal miners. Cough variant asthma refers to asthma where the only symptom is persistent dry cough without any mucus expectoration. Wheezing and shortness of breath are absent in such cases. Exercise induced asthma is commonly seen in athletes, cyclists and swimmers. Medication induced asthma can be triggered by medicines such as ibuprofen, aspirin and beta blockers. Nocturnal asthma is asthma that gets worse at night.

5. What is an asthma attack?

Asthma attack refers to acute symptoms of cough, wheezing and chest tightness from sudden bronchospasm. Bronchospasm or a bronchial spasm is the tightening of muscles of airways due to a trigger, whether allergic or non-allergic.

6. What is wheezing in asthma?

Wheezing is a whistling sound arising in the chest while breathing due to obstruction of the airflow in air passages.

7. Is asthma an allergy?

In most cases, asthma is linked with an allergy. However, asthma can be both allergic and non-allergic. Allergic asthma arises from sensitivity to allergens like pollens, dust and animal dander. Non-allergic asthma may be triggered by exercise, chemical exposure, cold air, smoke, GERD.

8. Can smoking trigger asthma?

Yes, smoking can surely trigger asthma. Smoking is a known risk factor for asthma.

9. What does asthma have to do with the weather?

Asthma is very much related to the weather. Certain weather conditions trigger asthma attacks. Cold and humid weather, for example.

10. Can gastric complaints worsen asthma?

Yes, gastric complaints can trigger asthma or worsen it. GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), where there is reflux of acid content from the stomach back up the throat, is a known trigger for asthma.

11. Can asthma be prevented?

Asthma cannot be prevented, but it can be controlled. Identifying and avoiding the triggers or factors that cause asthma can help control asthma attacks.

12. I have asthma. Will I have to use an inhaler all my life?

Not necessarily. An inhaler is basically an emergency tool used as an aid during an asthma attack. Homeopathy can help treat the chronic tendency towards asthma. With proper constitutional medicines, asthma can be completely eradicated at the root and the inhaler dose can gradually be tapered off.

13. Is asthma curable?

As per the conventional mode of medicine, asthma is a chronic illness which can be controlled or palliated. But, Homeopathy can cure asthma. How long it will take to completely cure the disease would, however, vary from case to case. Factors such as duration, severity and individual response to medicines decide the course and length of treatment.

14. Can I continue to use an inhaler with natural medicines?

Yes, a person taking homeopathy for asthma can continue to use an inhaler until such a time as he feels he is comfortable enough without it. In acute asthmatic attacks, an inhaler is, in fact, a must. If a person is using an inhaler as routine, then these medicines will help to gradually decrease his dependency on the inhaler by strengthening the body’s healing mechanism and helping it fight the disease.

15. How are asthma and eczema related?

Both asthma and eczema are atopic in origin. Atopy is the tendency towards hypersensitivity/allergic reaction with a strong genetic predisposition. So, these two conditions may occur simultaneously or alternate between one another. But, that is not necessarily the case.

16. Will avoiding allergens cure my asthma?

Avoiding allergens can help prevent an asthma attack, but it will not treat asthma. For curing asthma, Homeopathy offers a big ray of hope.

17. Do I continue to take medicines during an asthma attack?

In case of an acute asthmatic attack, it is wise to take recourse to conventional medicine.

18. I have asthma and skin rash; which remedies can cure my condition?

Arsenic Album is a good choice of medicine for asthma with a skin rash. In such cases, asthma may be present together with asthma or they may alternate.

19. In the case of exercise-induced asthma, can Homeopathy offer relief?

Arnica and Coca are two well-recognized medicines for asthma triggered by exercise. They have shown remarkable results in such cases.

    Dear Dr. Sharma, I have open angle glaucoma and asthma. I do not want to use steroids. I take glaucoma drops Azopt, Bromadine and Zioptan. I am fine if I am sitting down. However, I can easily get shortness of breath when moving around. This also happen if I am anxious. I am highly sensitive and can get excited very easily. I am 84 years old. I have alway had lots of energy. I am a very prolific artist. Anyway, I need to find something other than steroids to use for the asthma. My doctor seems to have no other alternative. I do not want to go blind and I want to be able to move around more. This is not the usual me. Can you make some suggestions, Nancy

  2. Dear Dr. Sharma,
    My husband has asthma and the asthma is progressively worse when he runs. He is currently on Symbicort, Spiriva and takes Albuterol when needed. Is there something natural that he could take to relieve some of his symptoms so he can get back to being able to run comfortably?

    Thank You,
    Tina

  5. Dear Dr. Sharma,

    I was hoping you could help me. My son and I have hyperacusus which as I am sure you know is a debilitating hypersensitivity to sound. He currently needs to be homeschooled. I believe we got it through both at different toiled needing intravenous antibiotics, both having TMJ due to jaw trauma and then, then acoustic trauma. Do you feel homeopathy can help our rare condition? We cannot go to loud places and we need to wear ear plugs as we go out to the small amount of shops we can go to. If there is something that can help us, could you advise how many times a day to take it and how many months or years there after? I have had this for ten years and my son for three. Thank you for your time and consideration. Your website is phenomenal!!!

    Hello Doctor,
    I’m writing you from Perú. I have asthma since I was 8 years old. Now I’m 27 years old and I’ve been using inhalors and antibiotics . When I feel better I stop taking it and I’m good for a period but then my ashtma comes back. Today I’m seeing my doctor once again for treatment, but I’m tired of taking drugs. (Too expensive and at the end my asthma is here with me).
    Please tell me what remedies can work for me.
    I don’t have asthma when I’m OK and do excercise.
    I actually don’t know if I’m allergic to a type of food, but I stopped taking dairys since 2 years ago.
    I have changed my diet, I usually eat more vegetables and fruits. Meat once a month.
    I have asthma when I sleep. It’s very hard to sleep more than 1 hour because I wake up to use my inhalor (I usually use Salbutamol cause it’s cheap)
    Here the weather it’s too changing but its a cold a dry climate most of the time.
    In 2 hours I’ll be with my doctor for urgent treatment. But I want to try another alternatives.
    Thank you and forgive my english.
