Are There Natural Remedies for Asthma?
Asthma can be a mysterious ailment, in that it may suddenly appear, and just as suddenly disappear. Someone who has had asthma their whole life, can find that it vanishes, when they move into a new house, or to a different suburb. This would seem to point to unidentified allergens, as having been the cause.
Other theories are connected to emotional state, as people have discovered that their asthma went away, when a certain person was no longer in their life.
Whatever the causes are, here is a powerful natural remedy for asthma:
These oils are effective in dilating the bronchial tubes. They are also anti-inflammatory.
10 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil
10 drops Cedarwood Essential Oil
10 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
Add the above drops to 4 oz Shea Body Butter.
Using a knife, blend the drops into the butter, for several minutes.
Apply to entire area from top of throat to waist, 3 times a day.
Natural Remedies For Asthma
Using natural remedies in combination with your doctor’s prescription, will help to keep asthma under control, and to lessen episodes. During an asthma attack you can do this:
Hold an opened Eucalyptus Essential Oil bottle, half an inch from your nostril. Use one finger to press closed one nostril, while deeply and slowly inhaling the Eucalyptus through the open nostril. Repeat several times for each nostril.
This is quick remedy for asthma, so always keep a bottle of Eucalyptus Essential Oil with you.
Natural Cures For Asthma
Some theories point to a weakened immune system, as being the cause of asthma. This is the idea that asthmatics will only be sensitive to pollen, dust, mites, and pet dander, if their immunity is weak.
One of the best things you will ever do, to strengthen your immunity, is the Candida Diet. Read this article, and then try the diet. You will be amazed at the difference in your health.
Candida overgrowth can reach as far as your lungs, so doing this cleanse, can have profound effects on your asthma.
Food allergies, which have triggered your asthma, may also disappear, after doing the Candida Diet.
Shocking Asthma Triggers
Three unsuspecting asthma triggers are Air Fresheners, Mosquito Sprays and Perfumes. By reading these articles, you will learn all about the dangers of these sprays, and how to make your own, healthy sprays instead.
Home Remedies For Asthma
A simple home remedy that any person suffering from asthma can achieve, is to never smoke cigarettes, or be around anyone who smokes.
A toxic burden is placed on lungs, by smoking cigarettes, because over 4,000 chemical compounds are created by burning a cigarette, many of which are toxic and / or carcinogenic (causes cancer).
Carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen cyanide and ammonia, are all present in cigarette smoke. The Surgeon General states that there are 69 known carcinogens in cigarette smoke.
The Institute of Medicine estimates that smoking a pack and a half of cigarettes per day, exposes a person to the same radiation as having 2,000 chest X-rays every year.
The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) classifies secondhand smoke as a Group A carcinogen.
Secondly, it is of the utmost importance that an asthma sufferer learn to control their breathing. To achieve this, there is no finer method than attending yoga classes.
It is insufficient to tell an asthmatic to “breathe more deeply” or to “relax”. This would be like asking someone to play the piano, without ever having had any piano lessons.
