When the Usual Suspects Fail: Unveiling Alternative Options for Difficulty Breathing

Difficulty breathing can be debilitating, leaving you gasping for air and impacting your daily life. While conventional Western medicine offers treatment options, some individuals seek a more holistic approach. In Beaverton, Oregon, Dr. Kihyon Sohn, a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, bridges the gap with traditional Asian medicine, providing an alternative path to respiratory relief.

A Breath of Fresh Air: Traditional Asian Medicine’s Multifaceted Approach

Unlike the disease-specific focus of Western medicine, traditional Asian medicine views the body as an interconnected system. For Dr. Sohn, difficulty breathing is not just a lung issue but an imbalance within the entire system. His approach, therefore, incorporates a multi-pronged strategy:

  • Acupuncture: This ancient practice involves inserting fine needles at specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow (qi). Dr. Sohn explains, “Acupuncture can help regulate the lungs and respiratory system, reduce inflammation, and alleviate anxiety, all of which contribute to difficulty breathing.”
  • Herbal Medicine: Dr. Sohn utilizes a vast pharmacopeia of natural herbs with specific properties to address the underlying cause of your breathing issues. “From lung-tonifying herbs like astragalus and Rehmannia to anti-inflammatory herbs like curcumin and boswellia, I tailor the herbal formula to your unique needs,” he elaborates.
  • Dietary and Lifestyle Modifications: Dr. Sohn believes that addressing lifestyle factors is crucial for long-term respiratory health. He may recommend dietary adjustments, breathing exercises, and stress management techniques to complement your treatment plan.

Case Studies: Breathing Easier with Dr. Sohn’s Guidance

  • Sarah, a 35-year-old asthmatic: “For years, I relied on inhalers, but they always left me feeling jittery. Dr. Sohn’s acupuncture and herbal regimen helped me manage my asthma naturally. I now have fewer flare-ups and feel more energetic.”
  • John, a 60-year-old with chronic bronchitis: “The constant cough and wheezing were taking a toll on my life. Dr. Sohn’s approach, including acupuncture and herbal teas, has significantly improved my breathing and overall well-being.”
