Herbal Remedies for Asthma

There are several types of asthma.  First is the allergic asthma that is caused by breathing an allergen. Then we have the intrinsic asthma which is a non-allergic form of the disease and which usually tend to start later in life.  This type of asthma tends to be long-lasting and chronic rather than episodic.  Factors that can trigger this type of asthma are:

  • Pollution

  • Smoke

  • Dust particles

  • Aerosols

  • Strong cooking odors

Another type of asthma is known as exercise-induced asthma and is brought about by strong exertion.  We also have bronchial asthma which is caused by temperature changes.

 

Although there are effective prescription medications, herbal remedies can offer an effective, gentle and non-drug alternative.

 

Angelica

 

The angelica herb is a gem uncovered by German researchers and is effective in relaxing the windpipe which makes it really beneficial for those suffering from asthma and other respiratory diseases such as colds and flu.

  1. Prepare angelica tea by adding one teaspoon of powdered angelica seeds or leaves into 1 cup of boiling water.

  2. Let is steep for about 20 minutes.

  3. As the taste can be rather bitter, add a bit of lemon or honey.

  4. Drink 2 cups of angelica tea daily.

  5. Alternatively, you can use 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of angelica tincture 2 times daily

Butterburr

 

This butterburr herb is highly recommended for bronchial asthma as it is amazingly effective in helping to alleviate blocked breathing passageways during asthma attacks.

  1. Prepare a butterburr extraction by placing one teaspoon of the butterburr herb into a cup of water then letting in soak overnight.

  2. Alternatively you can purchase butterburr syrup which is available in most health food stores or pharmacies.

Ginkgo

 

The ginko herb has the healing power to block the action of a natural body substance known as platelet activation factor (PAF) which plays an important role in many biological processes such as blood flow and formation of blood clots in arteries that induce strokes and heart attacks as well as organ transplant rejection.  PAF is also the main and central player in asthma attacks hence by blocking PAF, the ginkgo herb can effectively prevent bronchial constriction.  Buy the ginkgo herbs which are available in commercial preparations and just follow the package directions.

 

Ground ivy

 

Ground ivy helps in stimulating bronchial activity hence making it very useful for all types of pulmonary disorders.  The ground ivy herb is effective in combating asthma, alleviating coughing and curing emphysema.
