I’d like some opinions from u guys on an alternative cure for asthma.
Current Physical Condition
Sedentary for the past 2.5 years.
Height 5’ 9” and 96kg (211lbs) ..
Blood pressure 85/130 Borderline normal.
Blood sugar a bit high.
Diagnosed with mild asthma just 2 days back.
I have been experiencing coughes and phlegms for the past 1.5 months almost nonstop. It was kinda bad but now it has receded in the past 3 weeks. However, now I notice having a slight wheeze when breathing at nite and I tend to cough plegm (just a little now) whenever I laugh (go figure).
I went to see the doctor twice and still planning to go and see another one this week just to rule out TB pneumonia and what not.
I don’t know for sure what has triggered it, may be dust but I have no history of allergies to dust (lung wise) prior to this. It may also be my prolonged use of the airconditioning at nite since I live in KL (Kuala Lumpur) since the nites here can be hot. I sleep shirtless.
Anyways, the last doc I went to see has prescribed asthma medication to me to be used 3 times daily for the next 10 days (pulmicort) and to be reduced to perhaps 1 dose daily. My condition is mild asthma.
After taking the nebulizer & medicine, the weezing stopped almost immediately.
On the other hand, I have decided to look into some alternative therapies as well since I don’t want to be dependent on steroids (pulmicort) since it may have long term side effects (eg depression etc).
I have just read about Buteyko method as a cure on the net.
What do u guys think?
Any other alternative therapies for asthma?
I really welcome all your opinions.
