This is a definitive overview of asthma, its possible causes and the conventional, and alternative, ways it can be treated.
It begins with an explanation of the condition, the forms it can take, and explores some common misperceptions. From there, it investigates some of the potential causes and triggers that may set off asthma.
The remainder of the book reviews the array of conventional and alternative treatments available. Alternative treatments which are reviewed include the standard alternative approaches, such as homeopathy to herbs, nutritional remedies, and the many mind-body disciplines that can improve lung function.
