Treating Asthma in Children

Asthma is becoming increasingly common in children, and many parents struggle with decisions about medication and its effect on their childrens’ health.

Acupuncture and pediatric massage can be helpful in controlling asthma symptoms and decreasing inhaler use. Children respond very well to extremely thin, tiny needles; non-insertive techniques are also available, and parents can learn massage techniques to use at home.

Dietary changes can also make a big difference for children with asthma. Chinese medicine especially suggests decreasing phlegm-producing foods such as dairy, peanut butter, fried foods, sugar, and too much raw cold food.
