ACUPUNCTURE A BOON FOR ASTHMA #Asthma is known for its chronic character & for its tendency to disturb a person’s physical as well as psycho-emotional behavior. On the other hand a person’s psycho-emotional behavior is sometimes the trigger for asthma attack. Asthma can be very effectively taken care off with the help of combination therapy of Ayurveda & Acupuncture. The etiology of asthma in Ayurveda & acupuncture differs from that of modern medicine. So complete history taking & thorough physical examination (through pulse & tongue) is required to reach correct diagnosis, which in turn is most important for correct treatment. ‘Acupuncture-Review & Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials’ a WHO release of 1999-2000 also cites substantial relief in about 60-70% of cases treated by Acupuncture.
