Respiratory Conditions

Sinusitis and Rhinitis

Sinusitis and rhinitis are conditions which present with excessive mucous production in the sinus cavities. There may be facial pain, headaches, post-nasal drip (down the back of the throat), and constant runny nose. The first step in treatment for this is usually ear candling. After one or two sessions, the condition should have eased considerably if not totally otherwise I will add in herbal remedies and / or homeopathics into the equation. These conditions are very easily resolved without the use of antibiotics and the success rate is extremely high.

Acute and Chronic Bronchitis

Acute and chronic bronchitis are inflammatory conditions of the bronchial tubes in the lungs. Inflammation will cause a build up of excessive mucous production, together with persistent coughing, fever (in acute conditions), pain in the chest or back, fatigue and difficulty breathing.

These conditions can be successfully treated with:

  • Herbs
  • Essential oils
  • Celloids
  • Home remedies

Colds and Flu

Colds and Flu can present with fever, chills, sore throats, general malaise, headaches, nasal catarrh etc. These are viral infections which respond well to natural therapy treatments.

Tonsillitis

Tonsillitis is an inflammation of the tonsils caused by either bacterial or viral infection. Symptoms can include sore throat, hoarseness, fever, coughing, redness as well as headache, nausea and vomiting. Treating the immune and lymphatic systems would be the main priority in an holistic approach.

Treatment may include one or more of these modalities:

  • Herbal remedies
  • Celloids
  • Essential oils
  • Vitamins

Asthma

Asthma is an inflammatory obstructive airways condition which needs close monitoring even if not so severe. It can present in children or adults of any age and may be caused by a variety of things including a genetic predisposition to respiratory disorders, viral or bacterial infection from bronchitis or a cold, stress - physical or emotional, etc. Certain allergens can trigger an attack such as chemicals, smoking, drugs, pollens and moulds etc; or even exercise can induce an attack. Symptoms are shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, tightness in the chest and difficulty breathing.

Treatment of asthma can be complex depending on one's individual case history. Although depending on the type of asthma it is, treatment can include:

  • Dietary exclusions
  • Herbal remedies
  • Essential oils
  • Relaxation therapies
  • Homotoxicology / homeopathics

If you suspect that you or your child has asthma, you can arrange with your doctor to have a conclusive test. The doctor will also explain precautionary measures that you may take if an attack is severe and active. The naturopathic treatment I use is as a preventative and management against further attacks.
