The symptoms of asthma include:

  • Wheezing
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Chest tightness, pain, or pressure
  • Coughing (especially at night)
The exact cause of asthma is unknown, but it can be triggered by various factors, including pollen, dust or other allergens. It could also be triggered by cold weather or physical exercise.

In TCM, we believe that asthma can be generally categorized as either "excessive" or "deficient".

Excessive-type asthma shows the following symptoms:

  • Clear or yellow phlegm
  • Heavy breathing
  • Fever or headache
  • Anxiety
  • Chest tightness
  • Dry mouth
  • Greasy tongue

Deficient-type asthma shows the following symptoms:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Loss of voice
  • Coughing
  • Excessive sweating
  • Light-colored tongue
  • Cold limbs

Treatment: Acupuncture and herbs can soothe and nourish the lung and kidney meridian and eventually halt the major symptoms of asthma. In some cases, phlegm needs to be eliminated by other means.
