Treatments for Asthma

For acute episodes, conventional treatment must be the mainstay, particularly in severe cases. This involves a step-wise approach using inhalers for relief or prevention of symptoms, adding in anti-inflammatory medication, including steroids if necessary, for severe cases. Nutrition is also important.

The Natural Practice will use a lot of different techniques to help this condition. The whole of the benefit of an integrated medical approach is that a number of different approaches are brought together to support the patient and where possible to enable them to throw the condition off. We should stress that each treatment plan is designed individually and it may consist of one or more interventions below and others that are not detailed here.

Yoga, hypnotherapy and other relaxation techniques also have good evidence of benefit.>p> Herbal Medicine has been shown in a number of trials to be beneficial in the treatment of asthma.

Acupuncture is also useful if used regularly, initially weekly treatments are reduced to, possibly monthly, enabling reduction of conventional medication in many cases.

In our experience, the best approach is usually a combination of several different methods.
