Natural Remedies For Asthma: How You Can Cure It! Part 4

June 7th, 2009

asthma2There are a number of natural remedies for reducing the symptoms of asthma. Many people find them preferable because there are so many side effects associated with a number of different inhalers and other types of asthma medication. Asthma suffers do not want to rely on their inhalers all of the time.

Some of them find products which are made of fish oil. Typically, those products which act as some type of anti inflammatory are the best. They can be capsules or liquids.

Magnesium supplements are helpful as well. This is because magnesium helps the muscles in your body to become relaxed. Thus, those muscles surrounding your airways will stay relaxed rather than tightening up and causing an asthma attack.

Antioxidants of any kind of beneficial to people suffering from asthma. Green tea, selenium, vitamin E: all of these can help you, because they reduce the free radicals in your system. Free radicals can cause respiratory problems even in people with perfect help, so you can see why they are problematic to asthma sufferers.

Natural Remedies For Asthma: How You Can Cure It! Part 3

June 6th, 2009

asthma1There is evidence suggesting that what is known as the Buteyko Breathing Technique will work as a natural remedy for asthma. Konstantin Pavlovich Buteyko, a Russian researcher, developed this technique. It is characterized mainly by shallow breathing methods of exercise. The main aim behind these breathing exercises is to help asthma sufferers breathe more easily.

The technique itself works on the premise that you can raise the level of carbon dioxide in your blood by breathing shallowly. This is helpful with asthma because carbon dioxide may be able to actually dilate the airways — specifically, the smooth muscles within them.

Studies have been done to test this theory and to see if the technique actually works. Sixty people were involved. A third of them used the Buteyko technique; a third of them used pranayama, which is a technique used in yoga; and a third used a placebo. The results suggested that those using the Buteyko method reduced their asthma symptoms. As well, the people in that group did not have to use their inhalers as much.

So, thus far, there is clear evidence that this may be an effective way to naturally relieve asthma symptoms.

One of the proven home remedies for asthma is taking one tablespoon of water and two tablespoons of fresh lemon juice twice a day.  This mixture is definitely something that helps and should absolutely be taken everyday … twice a day.  Another remedy that seems to work is honey.  Just having a jug of honey waved under the person who is suffering from an asthma attack can really cure the asthma – for about an hour.

Steaming ginger tea with a bit of minced garlic in it is definitely something that works as well and this should be taken in the morning as well as at night, that way you can make sure that it is being used most effectively.  Figs are another thing that can absolutely clear out all of the mucus that is in the bronchial tree and inside the respiratory track.
