Asthma

Asthma is one of the most common chronic lung diseases that inflames the airways and thus, causes severe breathing problems.

What causes Asthma?

Subconsciously we do it hundreds of times every day. And that is a good thing, because our respiratory system keeps us thereby alive. The number of breaths we take range from 12 to 16 breaths per minute. Unfortunately, we only recognize the outstanding masterstroke of our respiratory system, when it becomes affected by diseases and stops working properly. Diseases affecting the respiratory system fall into three categories: viruses, allergies and chronic diseases.

Asthma is one of the most common chronic lung diseases that inflames the airways and thus, causes severe breathing problems. Approximately 300 million people around the world suffer from asthma and more than 25 million of them are known to live in the United States.

Allergies and asthma often go hand-in-hand.

Asthma Symptoms & Natural Treatment

Asthma symptoms include but are not limited to recurring periods of coughing, wheezing, chest tightness or shortness of breath, constant fatigue and weakness, signs of cold, allergies and sleeping problems. Duke University Medical Centre researchers strongly believe in the “hygiene hypothesis”. They argue that our Western lifestyle – with its emphasis on hygiene and sanitation – prevents a child’s immune system to develop fully as it is no longer exposed to infections and the environment as were children in the past. Hence, the changes in our living conditions and an overall decline in infection in early childhood may increase the risk for developing asthma or atopy.

Effective Asthma Treatment Methods

Homeopathy

Homeopathy dates back about 200 years ago when it was first invented in Germany. It is a system of traditional medicine which addresses the whole person: the physical, the mental and the emotional. It treats each patient individually with highly diluted natural substances with the aim of triggering the body’s natural self-healing abilities. Homeopathy not only restores the balance of your prevailing health condition, but also heals the underlying mental or emotional toll you might be suffering from.

A double-blinded, placebo-controlled study from the University of Glasgow, Europe’s largest medical school, showed that over 80 percent of the 24 asthma patients improved significantly after they were given homeopathic remedies.

Functional Medicine & Holistic Nutrition

Functional medicine is about getting to the root cause of a disease or dysfunction, by identifying the triggers, imbalances, pathogenic influences and toxicities. It combines the consultative expertise together with the appropriate diagnostic procedures, like laboratory tests, to help the patient regain balance, wellness and vitality. Diet, detoxication and supplementation are the key tools to correct any imbalance.

Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture can have a remarkable effect in relieving acute asthma symptoms. Many patients experience immediate relief and improvement after their first treatment, feeling that their airway blockage simply disappeared. Acupuncture helps to release naturally tensioned muscles and blockades without side-effects that are very common with conventional treatment methods such as inhalers. Acupuncture points for “calming the spirit” are widely used as the stimulation of those help to relax the parasympathetic nervous system and to relieve both physical and emotional stress. In combination with Chinese medicine, herbs can strengthen your lungs and immune system and reduces the likelihood of a return of an upcoming asthma attack. In total, patients not only experience a physical release from bronchial spasms, but also an emotional release from the fear of suffocation.

According to the British Acupuncture Council acupuncture is beneficial because of the following:
1. Reduces patient’s use of medication
2. Reduces inflammation
3. Improves patient’s subjective experience of their symptoms
4. Improves immunological parameters

The Yuen Method

The Yuen Method has its roots in ancient Chinese Shaolin temples and outshines by its simplicity as it can be applied anywhere and anytime without the necessity to physically touch the patient. More than half of our patients have never been physically present as a Skype or Face time call is absolutely sufficient. It is an energetic principle that looks at the human experience in its core components of body, mind and spirit. It believes that you are either ”strong or weak” to any given subject matter, person or situation. The aim of the Yuen Method is to find this weakness, strengthen it and finally delete it.

Our practitioner Victor Geronimo works to make sure that all levels of consciousness are harmonious. It works to remove energy blockages and help you to overcome any given problem - even your long lasting asthma.
