This is not exactly an herbal remedy but when my Momma was little and had severe asthma an old country Dr. told my Granny and when I was born with asthma Momma did the same thing for me. Applehead chihuahua dogs help, I know it sounds crazy but they take the asthma symptoms away. We had a chihuahua from the time i was born until I was 7 and he passed away with in 1 week I was in the hospital due to my asthma. Needless to say my parents had a puppy at home waiting on me. It doesnt hurt the dog, and has really helped me. If you do decide to do this make sure you get an applehead not a deer leg chihuahua it makes a big difference. Appleheads have a soft spot on the top of his/her head, like a baby, and short legs. Anyway I hope this helps you. Good luck and my prayers are with you! May God bless you.

I take Quercetin and Bromelain. They are both known to work as an anti-inflammatory (asthma is an inflammation of the airways). It usually takes up to 1 hour, but it works without all of the side effects of prescription inhalers. Of course, prevention is the best way to avoid asthma (I know easier said than done and there are some things you can't avoid such as pollen, pets, etc). It would be helpful to find out what you're allergic to and eliminate that (especially food).
I wish. Lobelia isn't legal any more, but it certainly was the best herb for asthma. These days I use a combination of Picrorrhiza kurroa, Albizzia lebbek, Adhatoda vasica and Inula helenium. Licorice, Mullein and Passionflower raises the final remedy to a level of magic you have to experience to believe. Talk to your nearest Herbalist about obtaining your personal supplies.
There is no simple answer here. To treat chronic asthma you need some habits formed in a lifestyle as well as a diet. Breathing exercises, physical activity and avoiding smoke and chemical fumes. For diet things, Spirulina, chlorella, blue green algae, green vegetables, apricot, walnuts are all good as well as omega oils in general. People mentioned lobelia, lemonade, mint tea; these are usually used to accompany vomit therapy or Emesis, not the most pleasant treatment. For daily teas, a mixture of fennel seed, mullein leaf and flower, fenugreek seed, licorice root, propolis, raw honey.

To Cure Asthma for good... soak 6 heads of cloves in half a cup of water over night, and drink first thing in the morning.. repeat for 15 days..This was discovered by a scientest from Sudan and he tried it on himself..

We use 'Blue Vervane ' ( or 'Blue Vervain' - spelling tea) from the health food store. It was published in an old book by Jethro Kloss, "back to Nature'. It stops symptoms within the hour, Just a cup of tea , sweetened to taste (with honey or Kayro syrup - it's very bitter). Cover up while you sweat, and you may be tired enough from struggling to breath, to fall asleep. It has kept everyone in my household from going to the hospital.
There is no cure for asthma, but the disease can be controlled in most patients with good medical care. The condition should be taken seriously, since uncontrolled asthma may result in emergency hospitalization and possible death.
