Why is the asthma program or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease program a two-year program?
We have seen that the body takes times to heal and rejuvenate. It takes time for elimination of the toxins from the body, which is called ama.

The goal-oriented, integrative bronchial asthma treatment program utilizes a combination of standard medical drugs along with Ayurvedic herbs, including diet and exercise to alleviate and control symptoms, and for the eventual minimization or elimination of the use of inhalers or prescription drugs including steroids.
As everyone is different, we provide an integrative pulmonary medical approach to discover a person’s body type (genetics or Prakruti) and an understanding of the disease process. The treatment is individualized for each patient. As no two fingerprints are the same, no two persons are the same, and so should be the treatment approach.
It is a combination approach of standard medical treatment and ayurvedic treatment.
The goal of the program by the end of two years is to alleviate the bronchial asthma symptoms, to decrease or eliminate the use of inhalers or medications, and to provide education on how to prevent symptoms from returning. Also, an additional goal is to drop overall health care costs, prevent and minimize emergency room visits or hospitalizations. We believe every individual has healing potentials. We have seen improvement in our patients who use appropriate ayurvedic diet, sleep improvement, stress management, ayurvedic herbs and ayurvedic treatment methods in combination with current medical treatments.
We have compliant patients with severe persistent bronchial asthma that required around-the-clock inhalers or nebulizer treatments and who, after a couple of years of treatment, are now off the inhalers and have greater exercise tolerance.
The two-year bronchial asthma program (it takes that long to improve) is not covered by insurance and is an out-of-pocket expense. In the long run, it will pay you back multiple times in good health as it decreases the need of inhalers or medications and emergency room visits or hospitalizations.
As we spend a lot of time with each patient with one-on-one individualized treatment, we have limited enrollment each year. We want to enroll patients who will be compliant in medical treatment and not just those who can pay the fee for the program.
This approach includes the best of Eastern and Western medical sciences; namely, allopathic medicine and ayurvedic medicine. We have seen this approach works better than sole use of one or the other.If you are interested in learning more about the program for yourself or your loved one, please call 717-338-9797.
