Beside your prescribed medicines following simple measures can help I to prevent your asthma to get worsen. Avoid to go to a dusty. Polluted area. Prevent mouth breathing and talking in polluted area have steam at bed time. Ajwain is a very good bronchodilator. So it's steam is very much usefull for u. You can also add pure haldi in it along with holybasil (tulsil) leaves. Massage with seasame oil (til tail) over your chest and back. The area of lungs and then take steam. Avoid oily items. Junk food and packed items.

When I am eating heavy food like parotta, Chicken biryani etc. I see blood in my faces when I goes to bathroom in morning.

My wife is suffering from drug allergy. History: we are married for 24 years. Within one year of marriage a child was born. At that time she was all right. Later within a year, she showed first signs of drug allergy when was given some antibiotics during fever. Initially, she had itching and rashes followed by sudden collapse and fainting. She showed no signs of epileptic conditions, but remained unconscious for one to two hours. It took days to recover. Her main problem seemed to be heaviness of head. She was shown to an allergy specialist who advised allergy test. The test report showed that the had violent drug allergy in most of the life saving drugs. Initially she used to respond to cetzine and pednisolone. Now even cetzine reccts. Pednisolone has not been tried recently on her. For nearly 22 years the patient is surviving literally without medicine. As an alternate medicine we tried homoeopathy and ayurveda. These drugs though not instantly violent as the allopathy drugs, but gradually reacted. She felt exasperated in her sleep, her wind pipe was chocked. Now even for miner ailments we do not know what to do. Under the circumstances, I request you to advice remedy and if any new treatment /drug for such patients are available anywhere in india. She did not have any such problem before marriage. Her doctor says there is no treatment for such disease in the world. Please advice.

Dear lybrate user, asthma is preceded by the production of histamines in the blood. Histamine is produced due to the entrance of foreign particles in the body. The triggering cause behind the onset of asthma varies in every patient. A detailed case taking along with some blood test results are required to diagnose the proper underlying cause of asthma. Please conduct a laboratory test of your blood for tc, dc, esr & ige. Revert back with the results & consult me privately via lybrate. In the mean-time you can take homoeopathic mother tincture grindelia robusta q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. If you prefer ayurvedic medicines then you can take ayurvedic arjunarista syrup. Take 20 ml of the aforesaid syrup thrice daily after meals.

Asthma is serious and should be discussed with your doctor. But there are also home remedies you can try to reduce the severity and frequency of your attacks, and to help manage your symptoms when they happen

An asthma attack can occur when an irritant?usually a common substance like smoke, cold or dry air, pollen, mold, or dust mites?meets a set of temperamental lungs. Hormonal fluctuations, stress, and anger can also trigger an attack. Sometimes there?s no apparent cause. Your difficulty in breathing occurs because the bronchi, the tubes that allow oxygen into your lungs, go into spasms. Accompanying them may be coughing and tightness in the chest. The spasms trigger the release of histamine and other chemicals that cause inflammation and the production of airway-clogging mucus.
For severe asthma attacks?the kind of tightness, wheezing, and shortness of breath that can be really frightening?most people do just what the doctor recommends. Often, that means quick action with an inhaler containing a drug such as albuterol. If that?s what you use, and it works, don?t give it up. And always have your doctor?s telephone number near at hand in case of severe attacks. But for non-emergencies, you?ll want to figure out ways to help yourself breathe easy.
Breathe easier right now
? When an asthma attack comes on, stay calm. Panic can make your symptoms worse. Help yourself along with this visualization trick: Close your eyes. As you inhale, see your lungs expand and fill with white light, and feel your breathing become easier. Repeat this exercise twice more, then open your eyes.
? In a pinch, have a strong cup of coffee or two 355-mL cans of caffeinated cola. Caffeine is chemically related to theophylline, a standard medication for asthma. It helps open airways.
Natural remedies for asthma
? Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine have been using the herb ginkgo to treat asthma for centuries. If you want to try it, take 60 to 250 milligrams of standardized ginkgo extract once a day. One recent study suggests that this herb interferes with a protein in the blood that contributes to airway spasms.
? Magnesium may make you feel better. Much research suggests that magnesium relaxes the smooth muscles of the upper respiratory tract. The recommended dose is 600 milligrams a day.
Help asthma by fighting inflammation
? Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fatty fish such as tuna, salmon, and mackerel, work much like a class of asthma drugs called leukotriene inhibitors. These drugs stop the actions of body compounds that cause inflammation in the airways. Take six 1,000-milligram capsules a day in divided doses.
? Evening primrose oil is rich in an essential fatty acid called GLA, which is converted by the body into anti-inflammatory substances. Take two 500-milligram capsules three times a day. Take them with meals to avoid stomach upset.
? Bioflavonoids, the compounds that give fruits and vegetables their Technicolor hues, have powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic properties. One of the best-known bioflavonoids, quercetin, inhibits the release of histamine. Take 500 milligrams of quercetin three times a day, 20 minutes before meals.
? Turmeric, that yellow cooking spice used to flavor Indian curry dishes, is a first-rate anti-inflammatory. The compounds it contains inhibit the release of COX-2 prostaglandins, hormone-like substances involved in inflammation. Mix one teaspoon of turmeric powder in a cup of warm milk and drink this up to three times a day. Turmeric capsules and tinctures are also available.
Keep a record
? In a date book, make a note of everything you eat for a month. Also record your asthma symptoms. While food allergies are rarely associated with asthma, occasionally there is a connection. Check your diary against your symptoms to see if anything you?re eating increases the frequency or severity of your attacks.
? If you take asthma medication, get a peak-flow meter, available at drugstores.

Hi, bronchitis/ asthma can be treated well with homoeopathic medicines completely, only need to be regular with the medication and avoid those foods/ things to which you are allergic to for sometime. Keep taking your already on going medication, reduce it gradually and slowly once homoeopathic starts acting. Take bakson's astha-aid drops/ 10-15 drops in 1/2 cup water/ thrice d day for 1 month. Report me back after a month.
