Asthma is a common condition that leads to shortness of breath, coughing, and wheezing.
The lungs ability to exchange air is impaired by a combination of spasms and inflammation of the airways of the lung. This response in the lungs is caused by an exaggerated reaction of the immune system to environmental triggers in the airway, ie dust.
Naturopathic treatment at Natural Choice Medical Clinic in Guelph would focus on reducing exposure to triggers, reducing the sensitivity and reactivity of the airways, balancing inflammatory pathways in the body, and correcting nutrient imbalances.
This may be accomplished by dietary and lifestyle advice, supplemention, intravenous therapy, acupuncture or herbal treatments.
