Hi Dear mom's, I really seek everybody's advice here, my son has been diagnosed with asthma. We don;t have any histroy of asthama but my son got this. Doctors says that its because of the pollution in air, environment & it has various reasons. But i am really worried and he is on nebulizer since 3 days & advised to take inhaler for next 2 months. My son is always below the average weight, he reduced 1 kg in last 15 days. He is recoving & responding to inhalers & nebulizers, but i am really worried as he is looking very pale & thin & i am a working mother..   Please share your experiences if you know anything about asthama & food to given & precaustions to be taken,.

Hi, I read your experiences on giving septillin.. My daughter is turned acute asthmatic, she was hospitalized due to asthma attack last month. can someone suggest a good ayurveda doctor who can guide me on the dosage. am tired pumping her with lots of steriods, ,levolin and montair. For the past 45 days she is been nebulized everyday with budecort (steriod) and levolin (brochodialator). I have also been giving her homeopathy, for the past six months but not been too effective..

Dear Priya , My friend is an Ayurvedic Practioner, so she made churan having combination of sitopladi and others ayurvedic herbs. you can just try Sitopladi - I found it really Good. And you cantry reducing the dosage of Septillin. Then I forgot to mention that some elderly lady gave me the tip to not to mix sugar as it is in the milk of my son rather use sugar syrup (Chaashni)made at home only. I still follow this advice and have found it to be effective to.

Dear Sonal - I have had a similar issue with my 4. 5 year old son. He developed asthma almost 2 years back and we have been through the worst - given steroids, ayurvedic cough syrups, nebulisation, homeopathic etc. Finally, even I was recommended Septilin by someone and have started giving him regularly. The idea is to build immunity so that body can fight the disease. I also started him on Pediasure(4 spoons a day) as well as a high protein diet such as egg and chicken. Precautions need to be taken with food and pollution - do not take him to places with smoke(havan, bonfire etc)and always cover his nose. This weather is specially bad due to pollen/seed dispersal in the air. With time it will get better. Gaurima - can you tell me which ayurvedic medicine you have given your child? I would like to try too. Thanks.

Dear Sonal... though your situation might be different , but i would like to share my experience. Post 3 my son had long bouts of suffocating coughs which would go and on to 20 days - 30 days and while coughing he many a times used to vomit. we tried to tackle it with all sorts of cough syrups prescribed by different pediatricians as nothing seemed to work. He was diagnosed with enlarged adenoids. Cough used to return Every 2 weeks . Then he was prescribed inhaler and nebulization for 6 months. Somehow, i was a little uncomfortable with this so tried homeopathic medications and became more preventive in my approach.. like i stopped giving him refrigerated fruits, curds etc ..no cold food item after sun set , no aerated cold drinks, NO CHIPS and NOODLES, cut down on refined floor products... Gradually he became better with more time-off between cough cycles. Then i consulted one friend of mine who is a Doctor Of Ayurveda and she prescribes SEPTILLIN by himalaya for immunity building and also made some churans to be taken with honey as per my sons PRAKRITI and this sorted out the problem for me completely. the cough cycle broke and he is perfectly normal and now is 8 years ..gets cough only when he eats too much Ice-cream ;)
