—Objective: In this study, the short term effects of
Faradarmani -an Iranian complementary and alternative
medicine which is based on the theory of “Consciousness Bond
of the Parts”- is examined on the frequency and severity of
Asthma attacks. Method: 84 Asthma patients (lottery) with less
than one year since diagnosis were randomly selected and
divided into two groups of 42 (control and test). Spirometry was
taken from both groups. The control group continued their
conventional medicine treatment without the intervention of the
research group. In addition to routine medicine treatment, the
test group was put through Faradarmani treatment.
Spirometry was repeated at the end of each month. Length of
this research project was three months. Collected data was
analyzed after twelve weeks. Results: In the third month of
treatment, total number of severe and medium cases had
reached 4.8% (1.8-11.3) in test group and 11.9% (1.8-21.9) in
control group. (21.3% decline in test, 14.3% decline in control
group). The coefficient of decrease in the test group is 1.49.
Decline of application of spray in the test group was 3.2
(2.18-4.19) times. Conclusion: Faradarmani had a considerable
affect on the decline of the severity and frequency of Asthma
attacks on patients.
