Asthma and homeopathy

As far as I know homeopathy is the only system of medicine which tries to 'cure' this disease, instead of trying to provide symptomatic relief. While dealing with a case of asthma, a homeopath not only records the symptoms of the disease but also studies the medical history, family history, physical and psychological characteristics of a person. This helps to find  the cause, the precipitating factors, and the hereditary tendency etc.

"Dr.Samuel Hahnemann"-Father of homeopathy

Homeopathic medicines have a long and successful history of prevention and treatment of illness without harmful side effects. Documentation spanning several centuries has shown the incredible effectiveness of homeopathy during some of the most deadly epidemics in history.

Dr.Samuel Hahnemann

Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician is considered as the father of homeopathy. He discovered the "Law of Similars" while researching cinchona bark which is used to treat malaria. Hahnemann was in perfect health when he began taking this Peruvian bark two times a day for several days. He reported that he began showing identical symptoms to malaria. Upon conclusion of the experiment, he realized medicinal substances create symptoms in healthy people that were identical to the diseases they were meant to treat. This was the beginning of Dr. Hahnemann's distinguished career in homeopathy which lead to widespread acceptance of his method around the world.
