Welcome back to icliniq.com.

It is nice to hear that you want to get rid of the Asthalin spray and surely we can give a try. You have been using the spray for quite a long time and your body is used to it. So, I will strongly suggest you not to discontinue it suddenly. I advice you the following lifestyle modification and food supplements which can be very beneficial to you boosting your immune system.

1. Drink lemon juice daily (squeeze 1 lemon in a glass of water and honey, do not add honey if you are diabetic). It is going to be winter soon and oranges will be available, add one or two oranges daily to you diet. Lemon and oranges contain plenty of vitamin C. Vitamin C is very good for the immune system and it helps you to fight common infection and even cancer.

2. Wear a mask to avoid dust. This is one single measure which will help you to decrease the doses and frequency of Asthalin use. Now a days washable mask in variety of colours are available for Rs. 20-30 (common used by people riding motor bikes).

3. Practice pranayam (especially kapal bhatti and anulom vilom). These two asanas have direct beneficial effects for the respiratory system.

4. Take two teaspoon Chawanprash daily.
