Homoeopathic management in Respiratory diseases- Tonsillitis – Rhinitis - Asthma - COPD – Bronchitis – Emphysema – Lung Cancer – Pneumonia – Pleural effusion.

Lung diseases are some of the most common medical conditions in the world Smoking, infections, and genes cause most lung diseases.

Your lungs are part of a complex system, expanding and relaxing thousands of times each day to bring in oxygen and send out carbon dioxide. Lung disease can happen when there are problems in any part of this system.

The most common lung diseases are :-

Asthma

Asthma is defined as a common, chronic respiratory condition that causes difficulty breathing due to inflammation of the airways. Asthma symptoms include dry cough, wheezing, chest tightness and shortness of breath. Allergic reactions, infections and pollution can all trigger an asthma attack.

Usually, asthma starts in childhood years and progresses into adulthood.

However, some people in their 60s, 70s and 80s can get adult onset asthma

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is an umbrella term that encompasses several respiratory illnesses that cause breathlessness, or the inability to exhale normally. People usually experience symptoms, including shortness of breath, and normally cough up sputum (mucus from the lungs), especially in the morning. COPD can be tricky for some people to identify, because symptoms are often mistaken for the gradual aging process and body deterioration. In fact, COPD can develop over the course of several years without any signs of shortness of breath.

“This disease is generally associated with cigarette smoking. It’s rare to see people with COPD who haven’t been exposed to some sort of smoking. People can experience varying severity levels of COPD

Chronic Bronchitis

Chronic bronchitis is a form of COPD emphasized by a chronic cough. Usually people cough up sputum (mucus from the lungs), especially in the morning . People can also develop acute bronchitis, which is not a long-term disease but rather an infectious problem. It develops from a viral or bacterial infection and can be treated with antibiotics. Symptoms associated with acute bronchitis will subside once the infection has resolved.

Emphysema

Emphysema is a serious respiratory disease, which is another form of COPD. The most common cause is smoking. Those who suffer from emphysema have trouble exhaling air from their lungs. Cigarette smoke damages the air sacs in the lungs to a point where they can no longer repair themselves

Lung Cancer

With the ability to develop in any part of the lungs, this cancer is difficult to detect. Most often, the cancer develops in the main part of the lungs near the air sacs. DNA mutations in the lungs cause irregular cells to multiply and create an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells, or a tumor. These tumors interfere with the regular functions of the lungs.

The most common risk factor for lung cancer is cigarette smoke. Other risk factors include radon exposure, workplace exposure, including asbestos and diesel fumes, secondhand smoke, air pollution and radiation exposure from frequent CT scans of the chest.

Cystic Fibrosis/Bronchiectasis

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic respiratory disease caused by a defective gene that creates thick and sticky mucus that clogs up tubes and passageways. This mucus causes repeat, and dangerous, lung infections, as well as obstructions in the pancreas that prevent important enzymes from breaking down nutrients for the body. People who have cystic fibrosis generally also develop bronchiectasis.

Pneumonia

Pneumonia is a common lung disease caused by an infection in the air sacs in the lungs. The infections can be bacterial, viral or fungal. Most people can recover in one to three weeks, but for certain people, pneumonia can be extremely serious and even life-threatening.

Symptoms, which include cough, fever, shaking chills and shortness of breath, can range from mild to severe.

Pleural Effusion

Pleural effusion is a collection of fluid between the lung and the chest wall in what’s called the pleural space. The fluid can collect for a variety of reasons, including pneumonia, cancer or congestive heart failure. Usually patients notice symptoms of increasing chest discomfort and shortness of breath.

Homoeopathic management in respiratory illnesses

Homeopathy offers an exceptionally effective approach to these set of illness. The homeopathic medicines for respiratory infections have the perfect solutions and powers to reduce the symptoms, their intensity and recurrence.

Homeopathy also has some of the best remedies to cure acute signs and symptoms of different respiratory infections. Using Homeopathy for these infections is beneficial as it has no side-effects. Such infections include rhinitis, tonsillitis. They are often associated to common cold, sinusitis, ear infection and sometimes bronchitis. The different symptoms of respiratory diseases should be treated wisely because long-lasting infections can turn into lifetime lung diseases

Homeopathy is popular across the world to treat respiratory diseases safely. A right medicine can easily thwart this acute crisis and cure it completely. Asthma, Pharyngitis, and Pneumonia are a few more examples of respiratory diseases that lead to blockage in the chest.

Homeopathic medication stimulates the immune system, acts as a natural antimicrobial and sterilizer, makes active the mucous membranes to help emission of toxins and stop nasal infection from spreading to other parts of the head such as ears. Bronchial infections is an indication of serious ongoing intoxication and homeopathic medication is best suited as its ingredients act as a natural plant antimicrobial that stimulate excretion of toxins. In cases of asthma, homeopathy acts by ameliorating the constitutional fermenting system rather than acting on histamine as achieved by conventional medicines.
