Asthma in adults and long standing asthmatics can be controlled with homoeopathy if not completely cured. It is possible, as experience and the statistics suggest, that most asthmatics may be handled better with homoeopathy and may not require heavy doses of inhalers, steroids and broncho-dilators. It is better to deal with asthmatic cases with homoeopathy rather than with chemical medicines.

Acute bronchitis is usually caused by same viruses, which cause cold, laryngitis and influenza and can be very serious in elderly people or people with Heart failure. Symptoms include Fever a painful Cough, which brings up glutinous yellow sputum, difficult breathing, and wheezing; cold or damp air, and environmental irritants, tend to make symptoms worse. Symptoms wear off within about 10 days, but full recovery may take up to 4 weeks. If resistance is low, inflammation may become chronic. Antibiotics are only given if there is secondary bacterial infection, otherwise orthodox treatment is limited to broncho-dilator drugs or cough suppressants. If homeopathic remedies in Self Help section do not relieve symptoms within the dose period give Ferrum phos. 30 every 10 minutes for up to 10 doses.

Chronic bronchitis, in which membranes lining airways are more or less permanently inflamed, chiefly affects people over 50, men three times as often as women; main causes are smoking and air pollution, although cold damp weather and obesity are aggravating factors. Over-secretion of mucus obstructs airways mucous membranes thicken and cause airways to narrow, and muscles lining airways contract. Early symptom is coughing in the morning, so-called 'smoker's cough'; gradually, amount of phlegm coughed up increases, coughing occurs throughout day, and breathlessness and wheezing become more or less permanent; at this stage, even a minor cold can cause serious illness. Complications include pulmonary hypertension, emphysema,

Allopathic treatment is to prescribe bronchodilator drugs by inhaler or antibiotics. Homeopathic treatment is constitutional; during acute episodes the remedies given above for acute bronchitis should be tried.

Cough

Caused by irritation of mucous membranes lining trachea and airways of lungs. Coughing consists of three phases: expanding lungs to breath in, contracting lungs to breathe out while the glottis at top of windpipe is closed, then suddenly opening the glottis and allowing air to rush out of the lungs at nearly 1,000 km (600 miles) an hour! Most often associated with cold and a sore throat (infected lining of throat), reflux Sudden bouts of coughing can also be caused by inhaling dust, fumes, or foreign bodies;

A cough accompanied by a high temperature may be Influenza (aches and chills, runny nose) or acute Bronchitis (thick yellow phlegm coughed up, wheezing); in chronic bronchitis, coughing is most marked in morning, with copious yellow sputum, and persists for months at a time. A dry cough which has persisted for more than a month, with occasional production of blood-flecked sputum, may be a sign of Tuberculosis or cancer of the lung, If any of conditions above is suspected, see appropriate entry for description and treatment. Be very wary of cough suppressants, as overuse in young children can inhibit respiratory signals from brain, resulting in respiratory failure.

Pneumonia

Inflammation of the lungs usually caused by same viruses, which cause Cold and influenza, or by Pneumococcus bacteria; other causes may be inhaled liquids or poisonous gases such as chlorine. May be mild if state of health is good, or life-threatening if person is very young or very old, immobilized or inactive, an alcoholic, or already suffering from some form of respiratory, heart, or kidney disease; people taking immuno-suppressive or anti-inflammatory drugs on a long-term basis are also likely to be very ill. If only one lobe of lung is involved, condition is known as lobar pneumonia, in bronchopneumonia, there is patchy inflammation of one or both lungs; double pneumonia simply means that both lungs are affected. Complications can include pleurisy, emphysema, and abscess on the lung.

Symptoms usually onset within hours, but vary with virulence of microbe responsible; person may suffer from breathlessness, even when resting, develop a Fever and a Cough, and feel sweaty and chilly by turns; Most serious form of pneumonia is viral pneumonia, caused by influenza virus, against which antibiotics are ineffectual, although they may prevent secondary
infection; bacterial (especially staphylococcal) pneumonia is treatable with antibiotics.

The homeopathic remedies listed below should only be used in mild cases of viral pneumonia or if, for some reason, antibiotics are contra-indicated,

Nasal Polyps

Chronic irritation of the mucous membrane lining the nasal cavity - the kind of irritation that occurs in Hay fever and allergic rinitis can cause small protrusions or polyps to develop inside the nose; lack of zinc and Vitamin B6, or a sensitivity to aspirin and other salicylates, may be contributing factors.

Though harmless in themselves, nasal polyps can obstruct breathing and reduce sensitivity to smells; a large polyp may block the opening to one of the sinuses and cause Sinusitis. A polyp on one side of the nose only requires specialist investigation. Usually treated by minor surgery. Since there is a small risk of
recurrence, constitutional homeopathic treatment is recommended after surgery.
