Asthma Natural Remedies

Asthma is an inflammatory condition of the airways that makes it hard to breath. Other symptoms of asthma may include wheezing, shortness of breath, dry irritating cough, and chest tightness. Breathing at night may also be a problem. Causes of asthma are usually a combination of things including allergens like pollution, dust, and smoke; diet, stress, and heredity. There can be emotional factors affecting asthma like guilt or grief. Homeopathy for asthma may help these emotional factors.

Many children suffer from asthma.  It is the number one chronic disease affecting children. Modern medicine treats asthma condition with inhalers or other medications for inflammation and opening airways. They consider asthma incurable and seek to control it.

There are natural remedies for asthma that help support body systems. From the natural perspective, we need to strengthen the respiratory and immune systems with herbs, cell salts, homeopathy for asthma and good nutrition. There are many forms of asthma and many natural supplements. What works for one person may be totally different from what works for another. Most of natural supplements can be used with medications. Be sure to consult a healthcare professional to coordinate your treatment.

Pleurisy Natural Remedies

With pleurisy the lining of the lungs inflame and cause severe pain upon movement. It feels like someone is standing on your chest and is hard to breathe.

Dry pleurisy is the sensation of severe stabbing pain each breath and is usually accompanied with dry irritating cough or a slight fever.

Wet pleurisy is the buildup of fluid in the lining (pleural effusion). It appears gradually with uneasiness, feeling dull, appetite loss and may also come on suddenly with chills, fever, sticking pains and pressure in the chest, difficulty breathing and a persistent dry cough. This type of wet pleurisy may be a chronic problem only recognized after years of suffering.

Causes of both wet and dry pleurisy are most commonly a chest cold or after a more severe disease such as asthma or pneumonia. Pleurisy can be caused by lung infections, and more rarely by lung abscesses, tuberculosis, lung cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.

Modern medicine diagnoses the underlying cause to treat pleurisy with the appropriate medication, which are antibiotics for bacterial infections or pneumonia. The underlying weaknesses causing pleurisy, however, are not addressed but the symptoms treated.

Naturally, we also look for the underlying causes and sometimes rely on the modern medicine to rule out tuberculosis, cancer, etc. Pleurisy is easily treated naturally as herbs, homeopathic remedies and cell salts are very effective and have fast results. Just use the appropriate homeopathic remedy for the dry pleurisy or wet pleurisy.

A good natural supplement to help with pleurisy is CoQ10 (300 mg a day) for lung and muscle integrity.

Diet is usually 30 to 50% of the problem. Stay away from fast foods. Coffee and black tea need to be avoided as well as sodas in general. Keep alcohol to a 1 to 2 drinks a week. I am amazed how many people smoke with respiratory problems. Now you get the idea – No smoking! .


Herbs for Pleurisy

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

The following works best as a formula but may be use individually for wet pleurisy and dry pleurisy. I you use herbal tinctures 1 part = 5 drops. If you mix herbs into a powder, use 1 teaspoon per day.

1 part Hyssop supports the respiratory system to help coughing and circulation.
2 parts Lobelia relaxes muscles and relieves coughing.
3 parts Pleurisy root used for pleurisy traditionally with great success, nervine. (Historical use points to its safety.)
2 parts Sage traditionally used for pleurisy to increase circulation, reduce inflammation, reduces water (wet pleurisy).
1 part Yarrow improves digestion and gets rid of excess fluids.
