Yoga's missing spiritual quotient

Yoga is increasingly becoming popular. Although, originated in the ancient India, it is now practised in almost the entire world. Unfortunately, most of the people trivialise it by reducing yoga to merely an instrument of instant cure of maladies.

Yoga is, however, an art and science of living and cannot be equated with allopathy or homeopathy. Unfortunately, most of the people treat it as a 'pathy', a system to cure a disorder or a disease. This is a reductionist approach. Yoga is closely linked with spirituality and it balances between mind and matter.

Often, out of ignorance and at times due to material greed, some people claim that yoga can cure asthma or arthritis. Claims of curing blood pressure and various types of cancers are also heard. Such claims are baseless. Yoga is not a stream of medical science. It is, however, helpful in living a healthy life. It is an undeniable fact that yoga has a major role in management of several diseases. But, its role is limited to the management of diseases and their cure.

How effective is homeopathy for curing child asthma?

My daughter is 5 years old and sometimes she has minor attacks of coughing due to asthma. Can homeopathy cure her completely?


No. Asthma is a lung disease that is misunderstood and irreversible. You never outgrow asthma. You may go through periods of your life asymtomatic, but it will resurface. The best method is to learn how to manage the disease through education. Visit

Have you ever used homeopathy for your asthma?

Can I use it instead of my asthma medication and when I have an attack? I'm interested to hear from people who have had personal experiences with homeopathy only.


No. Homoeopathy has no plausible mechanism of action, has never been demonstrated to work nor is there any reason why it should work. It violates every basic concept of science.

If you continue to pursue sCAM and stop using your prophylactic

Homeopathy cannot and does not work for any condition, beyond placebo response. It will not do anything at all for asthma.
