Homeopathy Treatment for Asthma

Bronchial asthma is what doctors call a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways. Bronchial asthma is characterized by hypersensitivity to various, mostly harmless stimuli. The mucous membrane of the bronchial tubes increasingly forms viscous and glassy mucus, which causes the mucous membrane to swell and the bronchial tubes to contract spasmodically, which makes breathing in and especially breathing out difficult.

Homeopathic remedies for asthma aim to reduce the frequency and severity of attacks.
