Cough season – kids and asthma

Do your kids get lots of coughs and colds in winter? If they have asthma, this can mean a potentially dangerous situation. From a Chinese medicine perspective, asthma is usually due to a weakness in one of the body’s organ systems. The drugs that kids take for asthma can further weaken their systems. When it comes to their safety, however, it is always best to have all available tools at your disposal.

The strength of Chinese medicine is that it can control the coughs and colds so kids get better sooner and, eventually, gives them better immunity so they don’t get sick as often. It can actually strengthen their organs and put them on track for a lifetime of better health. Please call the Clinic for more information.
