Bronchial asthma is airway inflammatory, increased hyper reactivity and obstructive airway disease 5-10% globally health problem. “Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways hyper responsiveness (AHR) that leads to recurrent episodes of wheezing, breathlessness, chest tightness and coughing, particularly at night or in the early morning. These episodes are usually associated with widespread, but variable, airflow obstruction within the lung that is often reversible either spontaneously or with treatment lung volume changes are observed by spirometry before and after treatment of homoeopathy. MAERIALS AND METHODS: METHODOLOGY: Total sample of 30 patients are selected from the Out Patient Department, In Patient Department, RHC department of Sarada Krishna Homoeopathic Medical College Based on inclusive criteria. The patient will be categorized 1-30 before treatment, 1A -30A after treatment underwent spirometry. The cases were analyzed, evaluated and remedy was prescribed. Assessment was done in every one-month and the symptoms were recorded for the pre and posttest assessment. ‘Paired t test' was accomplished for the Statistical Analysis. RESULT & CONCLUSION: Evidently, among the 30 cases under study, 25 cases (87%) shows marked improvement, Majority of screened patients in which 20 were Females and 10 were males. The common associated complaints are difficulty in breathing, cough almost dry, sneezing, obstruction in nose. All the cases were evaluated frequently in 6 months interval and changes were recorded. The medicines, which are found to be more effective, are ARS ALB and NATRUM SULPH. Medicines are more effective while they are administered in 50 millesimal potency in frequent dose than dry dose. Females are more prone for family history of BA, suppression of skin disease is most important factor for development of BA through layers of suppression. This study provides an evidence to show that there is significant reduction in the disease intensity scores, reduced recurrence of attack and Forced expiratory volume markedly increased after administering Homoeopathic Medicines. Hence, we can infer that Homoeopathic medicines have a very predominant role in effect to change the lung volume capacity in the treatment of bronchial asthma. It is also effective in the reducing recurrence of episodes and improved lung volumes also. In addition, the results are statistically significant.
