Home Remedies for Asthma
by: Grandma

Hello Joyce,

What a beautiful young lady you are! Thank you for sending your photo along with your question it's always so nice to see who I'm writing to.

Asthma has become such a huge epidemic in the U.S. and I'm sure other countries. With a disorder like Asthma it's always extremely important to play detective and keep a journal so you know what you ate, drank, or where you were when an attack comes on. Something triggers an asthma attack, and it differs from one person to another. For instance;

My grandson was having horrible asthma attacks when staying with his other grandma. They got so bad they had to put him on steroids. But when he came here for the summer, I played detective and took him off all dairy products. He never had an asthma attack while staying here.

When I was a little girl we had a coal furnace in our home and every once in awhile when my parents were fixing the fire a gas would go through our house and it would set me into an asthma fit. That was the only time I experienced asthma attacks.

So please pay attention to what you're eating or your surroundings when an attack comes on.

A really good home remedy for asthma is honey. It's surprising all the wonderful benefits of honey. You can read about it if you press the button on the left "Honey Benefits". You might always want to read "Allergy Wisdom". And again, "Vinegar Wisdom". I've been told by visitors to my website that the vinegar tonic I write about has not only relieved but cured some visitors asthma attacks.

Another really good herbal asthma relief is Licorice root tea. Just put a 1/2 teaspoon of licorice root tea in a cup of hot water and let it steep for 10 minutes then strain, add a teaspoon of honey and sip it.

A simple cup of black coffee has also relieved some asthma sufferers. Or a steam bath. I firmly believe so much depends on what triggered the attack. Even things like what cleaning products that are used around you can set off an asthma attack, or chalk dust at school or even the fumes from a magic marker can set off an attack. So pay attention and start keeping a journal.

I'll say a prayer that you find the wisdom to guide you through this and find what your triggers are,
