Chronic respiratory failure

Coping with chronic respiratory failure more easily thanks to homoeopathy

Respiratory failure occurs when a person’s lungs cannot sustainably supply the blood with sufficient oxygen. Chronic respiratory failure is a real handicap that prevents affected persons from properly carrying out their daily activities. Indeed, given that various organs are not properly oxygenated, they no longer functions properly. This condition is usually treated by allopathy, although you can alleviate its symptoms by resorting to homoeopathic remedies. However, you should not consider homoeopathic remedies as being the unique form of treatment. In fact, they should be taken in complement to allopathic treatment.

Symptoms of chronic respiratory failure

Breathlessness is one of the main symptoms of this pathology. In the disease’s early stages, it can go unnoticed because the body still manages to compensate for the lack of oxygen. This is done through a variety of mechanisms, such as an increased heartbeat, and this shortness of breath should be closely monitored since the disease evolves over time. Thus, although it only appears during intense efforts in the early stages, as the disease develops, it occurs during efforts of decreasing intensity. In its advanced stages, the patient is continuously out of breath and feels a sensation of suffocation even when at rest, which prevents him or her from carrying out his or her daily activities. Moreover, in addition to this breathing difficulty, other symptoms appear, such as a lack of oxygen supply to the extremities, like fingers, toes, lips, ears, etc. … This causes these body parts to lose their normal colour and turn bluish. Then, the heartbeat frequency gradually increases to compensate for the oxygen deficiency and the patient then starts to feel palpitations that become increasingly important over time. Finally, poor oxygenation of vital organs like the brain and cerebellum results in headaches, especially in the morning upon awakening.

Alleviating breathlessness

There is no homoeopathic remedy that can be taken to completely get rid of breathing difficulties. However, their importance can be reduced with homoeopathy by taking three granules of Antimonium arsenicosum 7 CH every 10 minutes. The intakes need to be spaced out as soon as the patient’s breathing improves.

Fighting against palpitations

It is recommended to take 3 granules of Nux vomica 7 CH every 15 minutes when the palpitations occur after intense efforts. When the heart beats very fast during insignificant efforts, or even at rest, take a single 5-granule dose of Belladonna 7 CH and repeat after one hour if the palpitations persist.

Treatment of headaches

In case of low-intensity headaches, taking 3 granules of Nux vomica 7 CH every half hour gives good results. To relieve excruciating headaches, take 3 granules of Belladonna 9 CH every 15 minutes during the first two hours, followed by an intake every half hour and, finally, one every 60 minutes.

When should you consult a doctor?

In general , all problems that involve breathing difficulties should lead one to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Thus, all cases of breathlessness that cannot be improved with a few days of homoeopathic treatment should prompt the patient to undergo a thorough medical examination, conducted at a doctor’s office or a hospital, in order to diagnose any serious illness that could be life-threatening.

Good to know: Despite the fact that homoeopathy does not provide a cure for chronic respiratory failure, its help is precious when it comes to helping the patient cope with this pathology. Thus, as a result of its ability to stimulate lung functions, Antimonium arsenicosum is a remedy that should never be neglected.

Pathology and homeopathy are two fields of scientific research that go hand in hand. As a matter of fact, homeopathic research on a disease is always accompanied by a pathological study of that disease. Pathology is the scientific field that studies diseases, while homeopathy is a gentle method for treating diseases. Homeopathic treatment follows the principles of similarity (Similia similibus curentur or "likes are cured by likes") and comprehensiveness. There is no universal treatment for a given disease; it must be adapted to each patient.
