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 from the earliest days of life. This section alone may provide you with the key to unlock your case of asthma.
The array of conventional treatments is explored. Despite greater diagnostic skills, better identification of the causes of the disease, and ever whizzier drugs to treat it, asthma remains one of the failures of modern medicine. This section explains why.
The remainder of the book investigates the many alternative options available to the sufferer. They include the standard alternative approaches, such as homeopathy to herbs, nutritional remedies, including a special asthma diet, and the many mind-body disciplines that can be tried, such as acupuncture, hypnosis and yoga, which can improve lung function.
