哮喘治療

哮喘的病因是什麼?

根據 國家心肺和血液研究所 哮喘源自於兒童早期發生的某些遺傳和環境因素:

  • 產生過敏的遺傳傾向(稱為特異性)
  • 患有哮喘的父母
  • 兒童時期呼吸道感染
  • 當免疫系統仍在發育時,在生命早期就接觸過過敏原
  • 接觸菸草煙霧等刺激物

除此之外,來自 杜克大學醫學中心 的研究人員堅信「衛生假說」。他們認為,我們強調個人衛生和環境衛生的西方生活方式會阻礙兒童免疫系統的充分發育,因為兒童不再像過去那樣暴露在感染和環境中。因此,我們生活條件的變化和幼兒期感染的整體下降可能會增加哮喘或過敏的風險。

中醫如何幫助治療哮喘?

針灸 對緩解急性哮喘症狀有顯著效果。許多患者在第一次治療後立即感到緩解和改善,感覺氣道阻塞完全消失了。

針灸有助於釋放自然緊張的肌肉和阻塞,而不會產生吸入器等傳統治療方法中常見的副作用。 「寧神」穴位被廣泛使用,刺激這些穴位有助於放鬆副交感神經系統,緩解身體和情緒壓力。

與中藥結合,草藥可以增強肺部和免疫系統,並降低哮喘復發的可能性。總而言之,患者不僅能體驗到從支氣管痙攣中得到的身體上的釋放,而且還能從對窒息的恐懼中得到情感上的釋放。

中草藥與哮喘

使用混合中草藥的草藥有助於增強肺部和免疫系統。草藥治療可有效降低哮喘復發的可能性。根據患者的體質、哮喘狀況和起源以及具體需求,醫生會開出草藥配方。

用於治療哮喘和支氣管炎的常見草藥有:

  • 杏仁、獨行菜、半夏,祛痰止喘
  • 白芥子、生薑、細辛,恢復肺功能、溫肺
  • 甘草(炙甘草),行氣止咳,止痛
  • 五味子,防止肺氣流失
  • 麻黃和桂枝,用於行氣散寒
  • 地龍(地龍),擴張細支氣管並緩解喘息
  • 厚朴,改善肺功能

Reasons for Asthma

Shortness of breath and wheezing are symptoms patients with asthma, acute bronchitis, chronic bronchitis and emphysema have. From a Western medicine perspective it is an immune-system-related disorder of the respiratory system in which the breathing passages are inflamed, narrowed or blocked. Reasons for asthma can be extrinsic such as an allergic reaction to pollen, animals, dust, mold or food additives. Intrinsic asthma can be caused by emotional stress and is often occurring after a severe respiratory infection.

The reasons for an outbreak of asthma, bronchitis or emphysema from a Chinesemedicine perspective can be one or a combination of the following:

  • Phlegm-dysfunction of the spleen producing phlegm stored in the lung
  • External pathogens attacking the lung can create lung dysfunction and lead to phlegm production
  • Diet with too much consumption of greasy and sweet food, alcohol and smoking
  • Emotion – too much stress
  • Deficiency in Lung, Spleen or Kidney
  • Seasonal – mostly occurring in the fall season

Patients with asthma have a condition in which their body lacks defensive Qi. Defensive Qi is a type of energy produced by the kidney to protect the body from external factors similar to the immune-system. The condition of deficiency of defensive Qi develops when the kidneys or lung do not function properly leaving the body more vulnerable to diseases.

How Is Chinese Medicine Used to Treat Asthma?

Acupuncture Treatment for Asthma

Acupuncture can help to release naturally tensioned muscles and blockades without side-effects that are very common with conventional treatment methods such as inhalers. Acupuncture calms the body and relieves symptoms of an asthmatic attack. It also releases blockages in the meridian channels helping the defensive Qi to flow smoothly through the body. Scientifically Acupuncture can help to relax the parasympathetic nervous system and increase the release of neurotransmitters to the brain. Some patients already see improvements of their condition after their first acupuncture treatment.

Remarkable effects can be achieved with acupuncture. Many patients experience immediate relief after an acupuncture treatment, feeling that the airway blockage was simply removed. Bronchospasms, a sudden constriction of the muscles in the walls of the bronchioles, results from over-stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system. Stimulation of acupuncture points can relieve both physical and emotional stress by triggering the release of neurotransmitters in the brain. Patients therefore often experience a physical release from the bronchial constriction and feel emotionally released from the fear of suffocation.

A common approach is using body acupuncture that strengthens kidneys and lungs. Depending on the constitution of the patient and reason for the asthma condition a variety of different points are used.
