Abstract

Allergic asthma is a type of asthma where there is hypersensitivity of air ways due to all types of allergens. This may run in their family also. Homoeopathy is a specialized system of treatment where it acts over the immune system of the person and in such a way it alters the allergic tendency and completely eradicates the bronchial asthma from that person when treated based on laws and principles of homoeopathy.

Key words:  Allergy, Atopy, Immunoglobulin E,          Occupational asthma, Skin Prick Test, Peak Expiratory Flow (PEF) Variability.

Introduction

Allergy or atopy is the disorder of the immune system which involves all the organs and systems of human being.  It is one of four forms of hypersensitivity and is called type I (or immediate) hypersensitivity. It causes increased activation of Mast cells and Basophils with the influence of IgE (Immunoglobulin E) which results in severe form inflammatory reaction.

Bronchial asthma is a type of allergic reaction characterized by chronic cough, chest tightness and wheezing. Commonly speaking, it can occur at any age, but it usually starts from childhood and 50% of people have chance of attack during adolescence. It commonly has an allergic tendency which has a predominant family history also.
