Asthma is a condition characterized by difficulty breathing and narrowing of the airways leading to the lungs (including the nose, nasal passageways, mouth and larynx). Asthma is a type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and is also related to allergies, whether seasonal/environmental or food-related.
A characteristic of asthma is that symptoms tend to occur suddenly in response to stimuli that irritate the immune system and air passageways, which is described as having an asthma “attack.” In this episode of Ancient Medicine Today, I share home remedies for asthma, including foods to consume, foods to avoid, supplements to take and essential oils to use in order to reduce “attacks” and help you overcome asthma.

Dear Dr. Axe.
Mouth breathing promotes asthma by preventing normal lip closure pressure. I dramatically cured my asthma by lip pressure.
Pressing lips together normally is the enemy of asthma. You can test this by finger pressure on a lip, which opens up lung airways by acupressure. This makes sense. Lip pressure is so important for love and the martial arts as well as asthma
I find ice or ice lollies help reduce the irritation the throat and chest. I haven’t been diagnosed with asthma but have started with a tickling inside my trachea when I breath in. This reduced significantly when I ate something cold. I now freeze fruit juice, made at home.
Dr Axe, Can the essential oil's you mentioned be used topically with a carrier oil/diffused with a five-year-old child? Also, I've seen a lot of videos on Raw milk being good for children with asthma. Any comments would be wonderful. Thank you.
As a child around 10-13 , I use to have bad attacks. But as growing up in the West Indies, people in Natu4al remedieis becuase they have no choice. ! My Mom made this nasty Concotion, which include som so ion in the wild and other herb and boil it. It was the most nasty thing I have ever tasted. But from that time I never got any attacks. It disappeared. But now in my late 30s I am trying to exercise and I feel like I have exercise induce asthma. So upsetting the tightness.
Not certain about the points made but ,if anyone else is searching for asthma cure try Jaffacter Prevent Asthma Coach ( search on google ) ? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my neighbor got cool results with it.
Took a long time to write down every single word you said.
I always was wondering why am I still getting worse with tons of medications putting into my body.
Those Asthma medication are so so so expensive,too.
Now I understand why!, OMG...!!
I can appreciate all this information but there is no follow up to those asking questions...Trying to treat yourself with herbal treatments as such, can be very challenging as well as maybe dangerous...To attempt natural health remedies find a Naturopath Chiropractor Doctor...Sad thing is Insurance will not pay for these treatments and it is very expensive...
go vegan, watch www.whatthehealthfilm.com or on netflix , dairy has pus and casein, and beef and chicken and pork has a lot of antibiotics , and a lot of chemicals that prevent animals to get sick but they dont study the consequences that people have on the long term , eat beans, lentils, chickpeas and so on
You might want to look at the discovery M.I.T. prof. Brian Peskin made that is now proven not a theory anymore. on youtube boulderfest 1-5 when you say fish oil yea! turns out it's not good for you. Not a put down. I know you usually know what you are talking about, just not this time. keep up the good work
Hello Dr. Axe.. Thank you so much for the very useful information. I thought I'd ask you, I've adopted your diet, but I still consume rice as my carbohydrates source, I've read somewhere that grains can cause phlegm build up, please advice me on this matter. Thank you doctor :)

Consuming fruits,vegetables,grains are good for preventing life threatening diseases like heart;stroke,BP,blood sugar,kidney etc. Same also applies to dangerous Ashtma. So we should consume more above items to prevent Asthma.Taking sun shine daily and drinking fluid and water will give us great relief. Jay Hind.
I cured mine by using herbs. I make a concoction of mixed herbs and grind them into a power and take them in capsules twice a day along with drinking the herbs as a tea. I also got rid of the mucus build up in my body first. I'm kind of a vegetarian but with low intake of fish and seafood. No dairy, low grains and pasta, no eggs, no salt and sugar. I've come of my singular only after about 30 days.
I like to boil lemon and orange peel to make my house smell good. Does anyone know if just boiling it will give me those benefits that Dr. Axe mentions and about how much peel to water ratio should I use?
I'm feeling better than before. I have less shortness of breath, and I'm taking less prednisone now. I'm feeling a lot lot better than before and I'm continuing with the healthy diet. I take a omega -3 supplement everyday because it's not easy to find wild caught fish where I live and I take a garlic supplement everyday because I don't like how the raw garlic tastes. I'm also taking Vitamin C, N-Acetyl Cystine, Vitamin B complex, ginger and oregano supplements because they help with asthma. Everyday when I come home from work I drink a cup of warm chicken bone broth. I feel better because I could walk up the stairs and have a little shortness of breath but before I couldn't breath at all and had to stop for several minutes to catch my breath, now when I walk up lots of stairs I just stop for a few seconds to catch my breath. The good thing is I haven't had any asthma attacks ever since I started this diet before I've had 4 asthma attacks which landed me in the hospital and during my 4th asthma attack I was in the emergency room for 1 day and in ICU for 3 days. I could say this diet is working if you have asthma give it a try and you will see results in 2 -3 weeks.
My mother believed in holistic medicines. She cured my asthma with a concoction she made out of onions, garlic, raw honey, and lemon. She made a type of antibiotic/cough syrup out of those ingredients and I had 1tsp three times per day every day. I didn't have a single attack for six years.
hey Doc. My grand daughter is 2 has bronchial pulmonary dysplasia because she was born at 28 wk. 5 days, never intubated. She just got dx. with ashtma as well. Is it still safe to use those oils on her chest etc. daily or how. I am trying to help things go along. She has reflux meds she takes daily and allergy med along with flovent inhaler daily , albuterol as needed. Did know if the oils would have reactions to daily medications or future added items as well.
everybody can handle being told that. Why you think I'm crying is not quite sure... If I disagree with your suggestion that "everybody should please dump meat, fish and products thereof" is not crying, it is stating that I disagree with vegans who try to enforce their "save the planet, save the animals" ideology. Are you trying to say that if a random person disagrees with what another person is proposing then the person who disagrees and voices their opinion is crying? They simply disagree and they voice their opinion.
Fish doesn't contain omega 3 EPA & DHA actually. Omega 3 EPA & DHA comes from root of micro algae in which fish is eating it.This type Algae is more advanced & has no name for it. It is different than the chlorella & spirulina. All health stores should bring in of this type algae & make it supplement or oil form which contains omega 3. It is the best alternative to fish oil because if you boycott fish oil, you're contributing healthy environment in the sea and prevent overfishing which has chance to feed population over the world..
