Asthma is a condition ‘characterized by recurrent attacks of breathlessness and wheezing, which vary in severity and frequency from person to person. It can trigger cough, wheezing and shortness of breath.
Asthma can be a major setback for many people as it interferes with daily activities and can also lead to a life-threatening asthma attack. In children, it is one of the main reasons to miss school. It is a psychosomatic disorder – triggered as much by allergens as by dysfunctional relationships and stress. To treat asthma effectively, you need to treat its root cause.

Can Asthma be prevented?
If asthma runs in your family, all close family members are recommended to get a genetic test done. At our clinics, we have developed the world’s first gene-targeted homeopathic therapy called Geno Homeopathy. With this, we can predict asthma years before they actually occur. This is carried out through a simple saliva test that not only helps us to predict the probability of getting asthma but also helps in treating the root cause. It reduces your chances of getting asthma through preventive medicine, appropriate diet and lifestyle changes. Since Geno Homeopathy is based on your individualized genetic predisposition, it is, therefore, the most individualized and customized treatment for your health problems.
