While many of these remedies have not been scientifically proven to help with asthma symptoms, many will swear by them in terms of their abilities to reduce the severity and frequency of the symptoms. Try these remedies in conjunction with the ones that your doctors prescribe and maybe they will help you too.
1. Ginger and Thyme Essential Oil in Tea
Although ginger can be ground up and added to the tea, buying a oil like doterra thyme or ginger essential oil to add to tea or inhaled through a diffuser can really help open up the airways and reduce the inflammation in the lungs that cause asthma attacks. Although eucalyptus essential oil can also help with asthma, do not use it during an attack.
2. Water With Lemon Juice
Drinking a tablespoon of water with two tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice has also worked for some people. Be sure to repeat this every night as it takes some time for the effects to show. Some have also used this mixture while having an attack to good effect.
