Answer

Asthma is a lung disease that causes difficulty breathing. Asthma can be either acute or chronic. Asthma attacks occur when there is an obstruction in the flow of air in the lungs.

Types of asthma :

  • allergic and nonallergic asthma
  • Aspirin Exacerbated Respiratory Disease (AERD)
  • Exercise induced asthma
  • Cough variant
  • Occupational asthma


Home Remedies for Asthma :

Garlic : 

The following garlic remedy can help clear congestion in your lungs during the early stages of asthma.

  • Boil two or three cloves in one-quarter cup of milk. 
  • Allow it to cool to room temperature and then drink it.

Ginger :

Ginger is a well-known natural treatment for various ailments including asthma. Researchers have found that it can help reduce airway inflammation and inhibit airway contraction.

Plus, studies indicate that it has compounds that may enhance the muscle relaxant effects of certain asthma drugs.

  • Mix equal quantities of ginger juice, pomegranate juice and honey. Consume one tablespoon of this mixture two or three times a day.
  • Alternatively, you can mix one teaspoon of ground ginger in one and a half cups of water and take one tablespoon of this mixture at bedtime.
  • Cut one inch of ginger into small pieces and add it to a pot of boiling water. Let it steep for five minutes, allow it to cool down and then drink it.
  • To detoxify your lungs, prepare a fenugreek decoction by boiling one tablespoon of fenugreek seeds in a cup of water and mixing one teaspoon each of ginger juice and honey in it. Drink this solution every morning and evening.
  • You can also eat raw ginger mixed with salt.

 Coffee : 

The caffeine in regular coffee can help control asthma attacks because it acts as a bronchodilator. Hot coffee helps relax and clear the airways to help you to breathe easier. The stronger the coffee, the better the result.

But try not to drink more than three cups of black coffee in a day. If you do not like coffee, you can opt for a cup of hot black tea. Do not use caffeine as a regular treatment though.

CHILI PEPPERS :

Chili peppers are hot and therefore help in opening up the airways. They increase the secretion of saliva which lubricates the airway and also makes it easier to cough up the mucus blocking the respiratory passage. Capsaicin, which is present in chili peppers acts as an anti-inflammatory and also a decongestant, providing quick relief.
