Asthma

Asthma is an inflammatory condition of the lungs and bronchial tubes, common in adults and children, whereby the sufferer is rendered unable to effectively deliver enough air to the body at any given time. The more inflammation present, the harder it is to breathe.

The most common triggers to an asthmatic episode are:
  • Air pollution
  • Allergies
  • Colds and flus
  • Emotions
  • Exercise
  • Medications
  • Smoking
  • Weather

Regardless of the particular irritants that trigger the attack, the underlying condition of a respiratory system laden with waste material, is common in all cases. This condition has a very definite cause and is highly treatable following Pure Naturopathy guidelines.

How does Pure Naturopathy treat an asthmatic client?

As asthma is an inflammatory condition, we must first determine what the underlying cause of the inflammation is. A full health diagnosis will be conducted to determine the origin of the condition and the causes that are at play. The client is then placed on an anti-inflammatory, health restoration program, focusing on all areas affecting the condition. Relief and reduction of symptoms is generally achieved in the short term, with a reduction or cessation of asthmatic episodes being the long-term outcome.
