Alternative Treatments For Asthma

Some alternative or complementary therapies for asthma help relieve symptoms, but patients should be advised to never suddenly stop their prescribed asthma medication.

In addition to herbal supplements, acupuncture, applied kinesiology, diet and exercise are some of the ways people can deal with asthma and allergy issues, according to Dominic Stape, a doctor of Oriental medicine in Albuquerque.

Stape's practice, Natural Life Acupuncture and Kinesiology, 9809 Candelaria NE, offers workshops on the Buteyko Breathing Method, developed by a Russian doctor who asserted that asthma is basically due to overbreathing, which causes patients to lose too much carbon dioxide from their system.
