There are also a number of herbs that can be used as an alternative asthma treatment. However, their ability will be proportionate to the capability of the herbalist who specializes in herbal medicines.

Controlling highly processed and chemical-laden foods may eliminate any simultaneously occurring food allergies that may be increasing the severity of your asthma conditions. Avoid foods that are made with white flour and try to choose whole grain alternatives. Whole-wheat pastas, breads and even dinner rolls are a wonderful alternative to the highly processed white breads usually consumed in Western diets.
