Asthma Relief and Natural Remedies
Despite any claims you might hear, there's no "cure" for asthma. Asthma is a serious illness, and you should work with your doctor to control and manage it.
Some people look for other ways to treat their asthma, too. But there's no evidence that shows these work well:
A better choice is to lower your stress, which can trigger a flare. Worry and panic can make an attack harder to get through, too. Relaxation techniques can ease breathing problems:
- Deep belly breathing
- Progressive muscle relaxation
- Guided imagery
Talk to you doctor about what you want to do. Some complementary therapies, while unproven, may make you feel better and won't harm you. But others may not be safe. For example, certain herbs and supplements can keep your asthma medications from working right or cause other health problems.
