Natural Health and Healing Therapy

Remedial Treatment Of Asthma

Trying to treat asthma can be very wearing, especially if you are expecting the treatment to "cure" the problem very quickly.  It can take a long time to cure asthma - anywhere from six months up to one or even two years. It is not uncommon for a person to need to go back to using orthodox drugs and inhalers for a period of time.  A small dose of orthodox medicine early in the attack can sometimes avoid the necessity of a larger dose later on.  Do not stop orthodox drugs immediately upon beginning to use natural medicines.  The reduction of the dosage of orthodox medicine must be done gradually over a period of many weeks and even months and with the support of a qualified medical practitioner.  Remember that asthma can be a life threatening disease.



Therapies For Asthma

A combination of physical therapies, chiropractic, osteopathy and physiotherapy can achieve the following:

  • Relaxed muscles

  • Relaxation of nerves

  • Free movement of chest

  • Pattern of breathing becomes even and full with the use of the whole chest and diaphragm

  • Mucus loosened and expelled

Spinal manipulation and mobilization will increase the mobility and release fixation in the chest wall. Chiropractic and osteopathy aim to normalize nerve action to the lungs by releasing nerve pressure and altering the electrical potential to the nerves. spinal manipulation should only be done by a qualified practitioner.

Massage and vibrator therapy also work to relax muscles and change the patterns in the neuromuscular system. A vibrator is often used to help loosen mucus in the lungs and to normalize the nerve impulses to the lungs. Shaking and vibration of the chest is also applied manually to loosen mucus.
