Asthma is a chronic inflammation of the airways. When you have an asthma attack, your airways are narrowed making it difficult to breathe. In the Netherlands, there are about 300,000 children with asthma. One in ten school-age children (10%) has asthma. Around the world, the figure is 5 to 12%. Asthma is more common in women than in men, except at a young age, when it is more common in boys than in girls.
BeterKliniek is the clinic for Integrative Medicine that bridges regular and non-regular medicine.
An van Veen (physician) and Michael van Gils (therapist) look for the cause of a condition or disease. That is where the treatment starts otherwise, as people often say, it is 'carrying water to the sea'. We call this cause medicine. Sometimes it is also desirable to treat the symptoms (at the same time). We call this symptom medicine.
Chronic disorders often have their cause in epi- genetics. You can schedule a free informative telephone consultation (phone number 040-7117337 until 1 p.m.) at BeterKliniek to discuss your symptoms so that we can provide you with further advice.
