  1. Dealing with asthma, especially during the springtime, is always torture. Knowing what home remedies to use and what to avoid can be of great help at these moments, both health-wise and financially.

    Things to avoid

    Dust is known to cause allergies, which can trigger asthma.  Make sure things are properly dusted and if possible, have someone else do the dusting, while you are not in the room during that time.  A hot environment is another thing to avoid for asthma.  It can cause further complications for breathing, which many of you may have noticed during summer time.  If possible, get into a cool room that can allow the air passages in the lungs to clear.

    Cough drops

    If you feel an asthma attack is about to come, just put a cough drop in your mouth.  This is helpful if you are traveling or have little time to prepare another remedy.  Not only that, it is inexpensive too and easy to find in all stores.


    Honey has been used in home remedies in many countries for a long period of time.  It is even helpful, not to mention tasty, when aiding asthma sufferers.  Asthma can be triggered through your allergies.  Most of these allergies are caused by over-exposure to pollen.  Since honey is derived from the flowers after pollination of bees, eating a small amount of honey is almost like getting a little exposure to the allergy itself.  But in this way, the body is getting used to it, therefore building immunity against the allergy, and is less likely to get asthma.  One good way you can consume honey is to add one teaspoon into a cup of tea daily.  You can even eat honey by itself.  It is important not to eat more than one teaspoon a day, because you can get stomach problems.  It takes time for your immune system to strengthen and build immunity.

    Ginger tea

    Ginger tea is very helpful for asthma.   It can be prepared by pouring one cup of water in a pot with a small chuck, or few slices, or ginger.  Bring the water to a boil and let simmer for three to five minutes, depending how strong you like the ginger flavor.  Steep one teabag for one to three minutes, then strain out the ginger and teabag, and add sugar to taste.  If you are pressed for time you can prepare one cup of tea in a microwave.  Pour water in a cup or mug, place one teabag in the cup and microwave until it comes to a boil, around one minute 30 seconds.  Take out the teabag and add sugar to taste.  Then cut a small piece of ginger and squeeze the juice into the tea.  You can squeeze by hand, or if you are having difficulty with this, place the ginger in a zip lock bag and apply pressure with a either a rolling pin, meat cleaver, spoon, or any other object that aid in extracting the juice.  When the tea is done, make sure to drink it while hot, because ginger will work best at this stage.

    Using ingredients that are easily available at home or nearby, you can create home remedies for asthma that can be of aid anytime.
