Asthma

 

  • Nebulize with colloidal silver and lobelia extract (5 parts colloidal silver to 1 part lobelia) and also take the Chinese herbal formula ClearLungs. You can also add the herb mullein for an even more effective treatment for asthma, the lungs, congestion and related problems. It truly works wonders for asthma, congestion and other lung problems.

  • Garlic.  Press the juice from garlic. Mix 10 15 drops in warm water and take internally for asthma relief.

  • Mix onion juice cup, honey one tablespoon and black pepper 1/8 tablespoon.

  • Mix licorice and ginger together. Take tablespoon in one cup of water for relief from asthma.

  • Drink a glass of 2/3 carrot juice, 1/3 spinach juice three times a day .

  • Add 30-40 leaves of Basil in a liter of water.  Strain the leaves and drink the water throughout the day effective for asthma.

  • Hot Coffee.  It should be hot and as strong as you can take it. The caffeine should open your lungs and airways. Don't put milk or cream in it however because these could cause phlegm in your throat and make breathing harder.

  • Wild cherry tree bark.  Found at your local herbal store. Make tea with the bark and drink it hot or cold. Add more or less bark to your taste and drink as you would any tea or other beverage. Drink some every day.  (Indian remedy)

  • Eucalyptus oil.  Put it on a piece of cotton material (like a hanky, washcloth or large cotton ball) or a paper towel and lay it by the bed to inhale while sleeping. It can also be put into a vaporizer, or put in hot water, or added to your bath. It also helps muscle aches and pains.

  • Omega-3 fatty acids, found in salmon, mackerel, sardines, and other cold water fish, have an anti-inflammatory effect and may counter bronchial inflammation. Fruits and vegetables have a protective effect on lung function. eat at least 5 - 10 servings of fruits and vegetables daily and include one citrus fruit. These food s all provide a variety of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants important for healthy lung functions.

  • Quercetin, sold as a dietary supplement; follow the package directions for dosage.

  • White vinegar - At the first sign of wheezing saturate 2 strips of white cloth in white vinegar and wrap them around your wrists, not too tightly. For some people, this stops a full blown attack from happening.

  • Avoid dairy Products - they're too mucus-forming. Cheddar cheese may be an exception though because it contains tyramine. Tyramine is an ingredient that seems to help open up the breathing passages.

  • Coffee and Tea - Both of these beverages contain caffeine, a chemical cousin to the asthma drug theophylline. Researchers have found that a caffeine dose of 7 mg per 2.2 lbs of body weight significantly improves lung function of people with asthma and prevents exercise-induced asthma attacks. Coffee has between 135 - 150 mg of caffeine per 8oz cup; tea has about 60mg plus beneficial antioxidants. That means a 150lb man would have to drink 3 - 3 1/2 cups of coffee to break an asthma attack. Since drinking a lot of caffeine is not good for it is not really practical to use it to prevent asthma. But if you have no other herbs handy drinking a cup of coffee or two could be worth a try.

  • Endive, Celery & Carrots - This remedy requires you to use a juicer. Take equal amounts of these 3 vegetables and put them into a juicer. One glass of the juice a day works wonders for some asthmatics.

  • Apricots - Eat 3 - 6 apricots a day. They help to promote healing of lung and bronchial conditions.

  • Sunflower seed syrup - Put 4 cups of shelled sunflower seeds in 2 quarts of water and boil it down to 1 quart of water. Strain out the little pieces of sunflower seeds, then add a pint of honey and boil it down to a syrupy consistency. Dose: Take 1 tsp a 1/2 hour after each meal.

  • Garlic syrup - Similiar to the sunflower syrup, but more potent. Separate and peel the cloves of 3 garlic bulbs. Simmer them in a non-aluminum pan with 2 cups of water. When the garlic cloves are soft and there's about a cup of water left in the pan, remove the garlic and put in a jar. Then, add 1 cup of vinegar and 1/4 cup of honey to the water that's left in the pan, boiling the mixture until it is syrupy. Pour the syrup over the garlic in the jar. Cover the jar and let it stand overnight. Dose: Swallow 1 - 2 cloves of garlic with a tsp of the syrup every morning on an empty stomach.

  • Gingko - This herb has long been used by the Chinese to treat asthma. The leaves contain ginkgolides, which inhibit platelet-activating factor, a chemical involved with asthma and allergies. Studies show that taking ginkgolides orally reduces narroeing of the airways in response to inhaled allergens and it partially protects against exercise-induced asthma. Typical dosage: 40 mg of standardized extract 3x's per day, for 6 - 8 weeks. Note: Rare cases of skin allergies or gastrointestinal upset have occurred.  Consult your doctor before using gingko if you use aspirin daily or take a blood-thinning drug such as warfarin.

  • Licorice - This herb acts as an expectorant, demulcent, anti-inflammatory, immune stimulator, and antiviral - all properies of potentialbenefit for people with asthma. Licorice slows the breakdown of the body's corticosteroids such as cortisol, thereby prolonging the anti-inflammatory effects of this hormone. Typical dosage: up to six 400 - 500mg capsules per day; or 20 - 30 drops od tincture up to 3x's per day. Caution: do not take licorice for more than 6 weeks unless under the supervision of a health practitioner. People who take corticosteroids should not take licorice without consulting their doctor. Do not take licorice at all if you have high blood pressure, diabetes, or thyroid, kidney, liver, or heart disease; if you're using diuretics; or if you are pregnant or nursing.

  • Reishi mushroom - This medicinal mushroom has the ability to reduce allergies. Reishi inhibits some of the chemical mediators of inflammation, including histamine. In China, it is used to treat asthma and allergic diseases. Reishi can also benefit people with asthma because it acts as an immune tonic. Typical dosage: up to five 420mg capsules per day; or up to three 1,000mg tablets per day.

  • Tumeric - This herb is one of the main spices in curry. It contains curcumin, which has anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antioxidant, and antitumor activity. Typical dosage: 250 - 300mg in standardized capsules, up to 3x's per day; up to 1 tsp of ground spice in food per day; or 10 - 30 drops of tincture up to 3x's per day.  Caution: do not use if you have gallstones or any obstruction of the bile ducts.

  • Astralagus - Widely used by the Chinese, this herb helps prevent allergies from triggering asthma attacks and strengthens the body's natural immune system.can be taken as a tonic - part of your long-term daily regimen - to strengthen the immune system's natural defenses. Typical dosage: 8 or 9 400 - 500mg capsules daily; or 15 - 30 drops of tincture, 2x's daily.

  • Mullein - Antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory, mullein also fights some of the respiratory viruses that tend to plague people with asthma. Typical dosage: up to 6 cups of tea (steep 2 tsp of dried leaves and flowers in 1 cup of hot water for 10 - 15 minutes); or 25 - 40 drops of tincture every 3 hours.

Also available to asthma sufferers are FDA approved, standardized herbal remedies for asthma, like chamomile which can prevent bronchial problems. When taken as a tea, chamomile has been found to be superior to anti-histamine medications.

Allergies can trigger an asthma attack, but Astragalus, used widely by the Chinese, can help prevent this. Ephedra can ease respiratory congestion, while Lobelia and Nettle both assist the respiratory system to work more smoothly.

It's also been shown there is a link between asthma and cod liver oil. Lack of Omega-3 fatty acids in the diet is believed by many to be a contributor to asthma. Several studies including the one conducted in 1990 (Olsen SF et al. 2008) found that overall, pregnant mothers who took fish oil supplements reduced the risk their children would develop asthma. In fact children are more likely to develop asthma when they don't get important nutrients such as zinc, Vitamins C, E, and B12 and supplement with cod liver oil.
