Asthma is a serious respiratory ailment characterized by shortness of breath. Despite the breakthrough in modern medicine, there is still no permanent cure for asthma. However, there exists several traditional / local ways of finding a lasting solution to

Asthma is one of the most persistent and troublesome of all respiratory diseases. It is characterized by a frequent bout of breathlessness, in between which the patients might appear to be perfectly normal. Actually, the word asthma is of ancient Greek origin meaning panting or short drawn breath. Patients affected by asthma may appear to be gasping for breath. The fact is people with asthma have more difficulty with breathing out than with breathing in.

Asthma is caused by allergies resulting from weather conditions, foods, drugs, perfumes and any other irritants. While there appear to be no modern medical cure for asthma, there are several natural and herbal remedies to both preventing and treating asthma.

Herbal Remedies For The Prevention and Treatment of Asthma

  • The use of aloe vera

Aloe Vera is known to have many medicinal properties; and the use in the treatment of asthma is one of them. If you have asthma, all you need do is boil some aloe vera leaves in a pot of hot water and inhale the vapors.

  • The use of lemon juice

The taking of lemon juice diluted in water has been found to be an excellent treatment that brings good results.

  • The use of garlic

Taking garlic boiled in about 30ml of milk has been found to be an excellent medicine especially during the first stages of asthma. The mixture should be taken just once daily by the patient.

  • The use of onion and honey mixture

This remedy should be prepared fresh on a daily basis. Cut an onion into very thin slices and place it in natural honey, allowing it to sit overnight. The following morning, just separate the onion from the honey and take 1 teaspoon full, 3 to 4 times daily.

  • The use of potatoes

Boil several fresh potatoes and then pour in a basin; covering your head and basin with a cloth to get the most out of the steam. This has proved to be very effective trado-medical way of treatment.

  • Fluid from snail

The white fluid from snails mixed with honey is highly effective in the treatment of asthma. Mix a ratio of fluid from snails to 5 ratio of honey to prepare syrup. Stir the mixture and pour into a sizeable bottle. Adult patients should take 3 table spoons full daily while children should take one.

  • The bark of bitter kola

Get the bark of bitter kola and pour cold water on it; adding a pinch of salt. Allow the mixture to rest for about 12 hours. After the 12 hours, take 2 glasses on a daily, 1 in the morning after meal and another in the night before you go to bed.

In Conclusion

The fact cannot be denied that nature has its benefits and natural options of treatments are often far more effective than the modern ways.

While taking any of the medication above, the patient should avoid known dietic errors like; excess intake of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, tea, coffee, processed foods and other foods that are difficult to digest.
