Kids with Asthma Breathe Easier with Acupuncture

Can-Acupuncture-Reduce-Asthma-Symptoms-in-Your-Kid.jpg

 

Asthma is a serious problem in the United States and around the world. Today 9 million children in the U.S. suffer from asthma -- that’s a 75% increase since 1980!  Many parents are looking for ways to reduce asthma symptoms beyond conventional medical treatments.  As a pediatric acupuncturist I routinely treat children with asthma so I was excited when, Dr. Russell Faust, author of the popular blog, Ask the Boogor Doctor, asked me to address this topic. Now, as you can tell from the name of his blog, he doesn’t take things too seriously except for his goal of helping kids by taking an integrated and holistic approach to healthcare! There was so much great information to share about asthma that we broke the post into two sections to cover all your questions.

Part 1: Does Acupuncture Effectively Treat Asthma?  How Does it Work?

 

Part 2: What to Expect from Acupuncture & Will My Kid Really Tolerate Needles??

I hope you find this information helpful and I’ll leave you with my favorite quote from Dr. Faust “… you can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friend’s nose (unless you’re a boogor doctor :~D)”

 Has Acupuncture or Other Alternative Treatments Helped Your Child’s Asthma?

Wow, I didn't realize how widespread asthma is! It's good to know, though, that there are natural alternatives for treating it. Thanks for sharing with Old-Fashioned Friday! :)
