You are not alone…
Asthma affects six million children, according to the National Institutes of Health. By restricting the ability to breathe, asthma can have a dramatic affect on people’s quality of life. In extreme situations, it can be life threatening.
Conventional medicine has its place…
Conventional medicines can be lifesaving in emergency situations and can control symptoms for many people. Unfortunately, they do not address the underlying cause of the symptoms. In addition, some medicines have side effects that make their use undesirable.
You do have options…
Many people do not realize there are options in addition to conventional medicine that will actually make them better. By addressing the underlying causes of asthma, patients experience reductions in symptoms, improvements in overall health, and reduced dependence on medications.
There is hope…

What do you do for patients with asthma?
Asthma is a condition in which the immune system overreacts to triggers, causing constriction of the airways and mucus production which further restricts your child’s ability to breathe.
At Asheville Natural Health & Homeopathy, we re-balance immune function so that it is less sensitive to these triggers. We do this with classical homeopathy, healthy diet, nutritional supplements, and breathing exercises.
Each patient’s plan is individualized – we have never found a “one size fits all” approach to be useful for the majority of people.
Homeopathy is part of the name of our practice because we believe so strongly in its power to cure disease. Homeopathic care involves the thorough evaluation of each patient’s exact symptoms. A single remedy is chosen that matches the subtleties of each case of disease. The remedy given restores balance to the many systems of the body that keep us well. [Read more about homeopathy.]
A healthy diet for an asthma patient excludes highly allergenic foods, and includes foods high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients. We customize dietary recommendations depending on each patient’s symptoms, sensitivities, lifestyle, and response to previous treatments.
Depending on your child’s situation, we may recommend one or more nutritional supplements. These will help to reduce sensitivity to triggers, reduce inflammation, and provide the body with antioxidants. We only use supplements that have strong support in the medical literature.
Research supports the use of breathing exercises to reduce airway reactivity. Breathing exercises have been repeatedly shown to reduce long-term dependence on both inhaled steroids and emergency bronchodilators.
What about my medications?
Conventional medicines can be lifesaving in emergency situations and can control symptoms in many people. Unfortunately, they do not address the underlying cause of the symptoms. In addition, some medicines have serious side effects that make their use undesirable.
At Asheville Natural Health & Homeopathy, our programs improve your health on a fundamental level. Healthy bodies don’t need medications. Our goal is always to reduce or eliminate the need for medications, and we are generally successful.
Please don’t ever discontinue a medication without the consent of your physician, as that could be dangerous or uncomfortable.

Asthma may take four to twelve visits to have a substantial impact. These visits may be weekly or bi-weekly at first, becoming less frequent as your child’s health improves. Follow up visits will last 30 to 45 minutes, as they involve coaching as well as homeopathy.
Supplements may be required at an additional cost. We try to keep supplements to a minimum, but our patients may spend $25 or more per month on supplements.
Ongoing follow up care may be required to maintain results.
