Many of you might have seen people, children and adults alike, reaching out for a pump, or inhaler as it is called. When they suffer an asthmatic attack, they have to gasp for breath, as the air passages in the lungs contract, obstructing the free flow of air. This causes shortness of breath, chest pressure, and at times coughing.
Allergens in dust and smoke can trigger off an asthmatic attack, besides other stressors like certain medications, respiratory infections, or even a highly charged emotional state.
It is advisable for asthmatic patients to always carry their inhaler, but some home remedies can also provide relief.
In 1 litre of water, add two tablespoons of fenugreek or methi seeds.
Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 30 minutes.
Now strain this liquid.
Extract the juice from two teaspoon of ginger paste.
Add this to the strained fenugreek solution.
Mix in one teaspoon of honey.
Stir till the honey and ginger juice are mixed well.
Drink one glass of this mixture in the morning.
Honey helps reduce asthmatic symptoms, in fact, it is a natural cure for asthma.
Drink a glass of hot water with a teaspoon of honey, or hold a small bowl of honey beneath your nose and inhale. Even the smell of honey often provides relief.
In a pan, put ½ cup of mustard oil.
Add a small piece of camphor and heat the oil.
Turn off the heat, and allow the oil to cool down till warm to the touch.

Soak three figs in a cup of water overnight.
In the morning, have the figs on an empty stomach together with the water.

Onions are known for their anti-inflammatory properties, which help reduce lung inflammation and ease the air passageways, so include them in your diet in the raw or cooked form.
