Asthma is a very scary malady, but one which can be controlled easily with a little presence of mind and adequate medicine. The medicine for asthma often involves the use of an inhaler and/or a nebulizer, which can bring instant relief.
What if the Medicines do not Suit You?
Those who are allergic to asthma medicines find themselves in a bad predicament. There are a number of reportedly effective home asthma remedies – but the law or doctors do not normally endorse them in general. One of the most popular alternative medicines is homeopathy. This can be given on a long-term basis without any fear of having any harmful side effects.
There are also a number of herbs that can be used as home asthma remedy. However, their efficiency will be proportionate to the efficiency of the person who mixes and matches them at home.
Hypnosis and acupuncture are also popular alternatives. Though they cannot be labeled strictly as home asthma remedies, they can provide non-medical long-term relief to both children and adults. The only thing that one should be careful about in this case of trying out a hypnotherapy session is the credentials of the hypnotist.
Some find acupuncture a very effective method to control asthma. This treatment involves stimulating of internal chemical reaction with the help of needles at particular nerve points. For those who are apprehensive about the use of needles, one can choose the use of acupressure, which acts on the same concept; however, instead of needles (puncturing of the skin) it uses pressure. This opportunity is considered much safer than acupuncture.
How to Choose the Right Home Asthma Remedy for You?
The best way to find out what could be the most suitable choice for you is by enquiring from friends and relatives. Another good way of gathering accurate information is the use of the internet. Do some research and find out the merits and demerits of all the home asthma remedies that you are interested in.
One very important thing is to ensure is that none of the treatment plans have any contraindications that could aggravate your asthma instead of giving you relief. It would be better if you consult a doctor before you embark on any ‘adventure’ with the proposed home asthma remedy. Most medical practitioners have a good and upto-date knowledge of the best available choices.
