Asthma herbal treatment

1. The asthma herbal treatment we are going to start it with a Chamomile tea who has an anti-asthmatic action. A cup taken in the morning and in the afternoon, may prevent an acute attack. Anise tea taken daily helps many asthmatics avoid acute attacks. These teas may be given a cupful each hour or less during an attack.

2. Administer a variety of herbal teas such as catnip tea, mullein, fenugreek, comfrey, Aloe vera, black cherry bark, and white oak bark. A cup of tea from among this list should be given each hour, or if no tea is available, substitute a cup of hot water with nothing in it.

3. Anise, coltsfoot, ginkgo, and the common grocery store tea, green tea, black tea, pekoe tea — can be helpful in acute attacks. Do not use it between attacks as a beverage, as it will lose its effectiveness.

4. Licorice root tea has a slight cortisone-like effect and can be helpful to prevent attacks. It is more effective the longer it is taken, reaching a good effect after a month or more. Use about one tablespoon of the powder to a quart of water and simmer gently for 10-15 minutes. Take the quart in four doses throughout the day. Make up freshly each day.

5. Ephedra has a slight adrenalin-like action and can be helpful in acute attacks. Use a tablespoon to a quart of water, simmer gently for 10 to 15 minutes, and take one cup four times a day.

6. Peppermint may reduce the tightening of your airways during an attack.
