Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease. Asthma affects all age groups in some races may be predisposed as compared to others; however asthmatic patients happen to exist globally with an alarming increase each year. In this disease the airways become constricted by swelling, making breathing difficult either on inspiration or expiration. Many steroidal drugs in conventional medicine in the form of puff are widely used to treat asthma but these drugs do nothing to change the progression of the disease even these drugs decline the rates of cure. A broader, nutritional and environmental approach is required, and when combining this approach with Homeopathy, significant improvements or cures can be achieved.

It is advisable not to choose conventional medicine, we at orbit clinics our TEAM cured more than hundreds of cases of asthma.
An effective approach to asthma treatment is to reduce the total ‘environmental load’ that an asthmatic individual is experiencing.

Reducing this load as well as introducing important nutritional and Homeopathic remedies have a highly positive effect on an asthmatic individual, many times eradicating asthma altogether!.
