Identifying the factors that aggravate the onset of asthma in our skin allows us to cope more easily with the disease. Naturopathic treatment begins with the commitment of each person to himself to create a real change in his life, in order to improve the quality of life.
Holistic treatment in four stages:
1. Cleaning phase – At this stage we will avoid as much as possible food s and products that are considered allergic, containing substances that may cause irritation and aggravate the disease. At this stage, the body cleans itself of the toxins present in it.
2. Strengthening the immune system – through a nutritious diet and medicinal herbs.
- Download stress and tensions – everyone has to find the things in his daily life that mostly induce tension. It is recommended to seek treatments such as shiatsu, reflexology, guided imagery, meditation. Or simply take out energy through physical activity (which also helps remove toxins from the body), walking on the beach, or anything that does you good. Children who suffer from skin asthma are very sensitive children and often stress at home affects them, pay attention and be alert to it.
4. Stage of assimilation – At this stage we learn to apply the first three stages of everyday life and create a balanced lifestyle.
Some important points are important in the treatment of skin asthma
The cleaning phase is different in treating adults and children.
In adults, the body is saturated with toxins. Therefore, we go through a cleansing process for 10 to 20 days, which includes two days of the fruit and vegetable juices diet only, then add vegetables and fruits and continue with nutritional change until a healthy and balanced diet is created. It is a deep process, accompanied by many reactions, may be exacerbated in the initial stage of skin lesions, emotional and physical impact so in the first few times it is recommended to go through the cleaning phase only accompanied by a naturopath or a suitable therapist.
Children will take the foods that are considered allergens (the most common are milk and dairy products, wheat, eggs) or are suspected of such, according to the child’s menu. The next stage of cleaning is called the “elimination diet”. At this stage we will examine all the foods that we have removed from the menu, whether they trigger an allergic reaction or not. This stage can only be passed after the cleaning phase, since the body is cleaner, it will react more quickly to foods that do not benefit him. In the cleaning phase, we will use only natural hypoallergenic products that do not contain all the chemicals found in soaps, shampoos, creams, etc … that may irritate the skin.
The second stage, the stage of strengthening the immune system. The most significant for children is avoiding, as much as possible (preferably absolute) from sweets, snacks, cakes, cookies. You can find healthier, substitutes and create a new rule that you can eat otherwise. Without a doubt, such a move requires family effort and the commitment of both parents to the health of the children. It is important to understand that a diet rich in sugar, simple carbohydrates, caffeine is a weakening diet that leads to subsequent exposure to many diseases. Treatment with herbs works in the same treatment principles.
Herbal medicine is a very ancient medicine, but it is now gaining a new status in the world because of many studies that prove the efficacy of medicinal plants, and is even much better because of the use of natural ingredients rather than chemical substances synthesized in the laboratory. Herbal remedies will also strengthen the immune system, anti-allergic plants, soothing plants and supporting the emotional aspect and plants that help the liver in the work of filtering toxins.
An example of a known plant that is suitable for the treatment of skin asthma is chamomile.
Chamomile is an anti-allergic herb, suitable for children. Chamomile has soothing properties, suitable for situations of restlessness, anxiety in adults and children. Chamomile has proven anti-inflammatory activity and is therefore best suited for skin infections, disinfects, and helps to restore damaged tissue. The plant works to improve the activity of the digestive system, and helps the liver.
