Asthma treatment Canada

What is asthma?

Asthma is a common reactive airway disease that happens because of an allergy to different agents such as dust, pollen, flowers, or food. It presents as a cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, and tightness. Both men and women are affected equally but the most common age groups are children and young adults. In Canada, asthma is a very common respiratory illness that is seen all year round.

How can we treat asthma? 

Medical treatment of asthma ranges from bronchodilator puffs to inhaled steroids and oral cortisone. In severe cases, intravenous steroids, and oxygen is needed. If neglected, asthma can be fatal, so it needs immediate care and attention.

How can naturopathic medicine help?

Naturopathic medicine can help in many ways such as identifying the root cause of asthma and trying to avoid any exposure to it, and giving herbal and oral supplements to avoid the development of asthma symptoms. Also giving inhalation Glutathione can help mitigate symptoms or prevent further attacks of asthma.
