As an asthmatic, I have heard and read hundreds of asthma home remedies out there that can be used for treating asthma. I have tried a few, some of which helped and others had no effect.
Below is a list of remedies for, which I have tried and have helped me.
I do not want to give you a list of remedies that I have not yet tried and am unfamiliar with.
Some remedies out there may work for one person, but not necessarily for another. Hope they do work for you! : )
Here are some asthma home remedies I tried and have helped
Put one full cup of water in a mug. Pour into a pot and then peel off 4 cloves of garlic and add to the pot. Bring to boil for about four minutes and then allow cooling (cool enough to drink). Drain into a mug and drink like normal tea.
I usually have this asthma remedy in the morning and evening (when I can remember to do it). It helps reduce any asthma flare ups during the day. You can add or reduce the amount of cloves to suite how strong or mild you want it to be.
This remedy is also very effective if you have a cold.
This is one of my favorite asthma home remedies:
This remedy has exactly the same process as the one above, only this time you use ginger instead of garlic. Wash about the size of a palm of ginger and then cut into small pieces (cut according to your preferences).
Put into a pot with water and bring to boil, leave to get cool then drink like normal tea.
Again, this home remedy for asthma is very useful for cold as well. Colds can cause asthma flare ups and by eliminating colds could also help preventing asthma flare ups. Either way, it has helped me with my asthma.
I was also told that the two can be boiled together and should have effective results.
I have got a device called facial sauna, which helps to clear the airways in the lungs. It works by producing hot steam of water and you breathe the steam in by placing your face down into the face mask.
I put 2-3 drops of Eucalyptus oil into the water, which enhances the effect of the facial sauna on my lungs. However, if you do not have access to this device you can still do this treatment.
Boil approximately three pints of water and place into a large enough bowl for the face to fit over.
Place a towel over your head and put your face over the hot steam water, adjust the distance between your face and the steam to your comfort. Breathe in the steam as much as you can.
Take deep breaths for better results. Repeat the process if you find it helpful. You can use Eucalyptus oil as well if you want to.
Be very careful with the boiling hot water.
A hot cup of coffee also does the trick, but drink without milk, because milk can produce mucus which can cause asthma symptoms.
I usually drink coffee when I feel my asthma symptoms are occurring and this helps to relax and clear my airways a bit. Hot black tea usually helps as well, but coffee gives better results.
Another One of my favorite asthma home remedies is lime. Here's how to make it; use half of one lime and squeeze in a glass. Then add some water and sugar that suits your taste. I use to have this drink, especially when I was suffering from an asthma attack.
I usually to have two glasses per day.
Although I have not tried this one professionally yet, I am planning to book a massage treatment for asthma, because I heard that it is really effective and may even be better than the majority of remedies out there for asthma.
You should give this one a try as well to see if it works for you. You can even get someone to do it for you for free, such as mom, dad, brother, sister, cousin, and so on.
When getting a back massage for asthma, the force should be a bit harder than normal for best result.
All these asthma home remedies have helped me and hopefully can help you too.
