Cure Bronchial Asthma with Homeopathy
Asthma is a very common and long term chronic respiratory disorder. It affects millions of people every year and the number is increasing year per year. In asthma, there is swelling inside the respiratory tract. Due to this mucous is produced in excess amounts which obstructs the passage of air. It is characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, and bronchospasm. A person suffering from asthma often experiences wheezing, coughing, tightness in chest, and shortage of breath a few times a day or a week depending on the person and the environment they live in.
Asthma can be caused by both genetic and environmental factors. It can be caused due to an allergy at a young age, getting infected by a virus which causes it, sometimes emotional instability also causes or at least triggers asthma attacks, and exposure to metallic dusts, toluene diisocyanate, biological detergents and other pathogens in the occupational environment too.

Homeopathy medicines are different than inhalers and steroids which are used in allopathy to suppress the inflammation.
