In many cases Yes!: As a md and homeopath, I am happy to say that homeopathy can help these conditions. I have seen homeopathy cure asthma and it can help your cattarh/congestion as well. Nutritional supplements and herbal medicines may also help. Dietary changes may help too- you might benefit from avoiding dairy, gluten and other foods. A good air filter or ionizer may also help, as can sinus irrigation. Good luck!

See a pulmonary spec: You have not had adequate treatment yet. Homeopathy is completely useless. You would be wasting valuable time and money. A nutritionist will also do no good. The sooner you see a lung specialist the better. Avoid cats. Avoid smoke. When you go, bring all meds, herbs, vits, inhalers. Saying you use "bronchodilator" is much too vague. There are numerous treatments which will help you. Junk science w

Please repost: Homeopathy is worthless pseudomedicine & don't let anyone tell you different. Ditto for nutritionists. "Dietitians" are trained professionals. Any quack or HS dropout can call him/herself a "nutritionist." "Orthodox medicine" is hopelessly vague. Please repost & specify what "orthodox medicine" you've been treated with so far. (Self-treatment with OTC drugstore meds doesn't count.)
