Over 20 years ago, while standing in a line, an unknown lady approached my mother and gave her a simple recipe that forever changed her life. My mom was very ill at the time and her conventional asthma medicines weren't  doing much for her.  Without thinking twice, she went to the supermarket, and for about $5 got the ingredients she needed. Here they are:

1 Aloe Leaf (12-14 in. long)
1 Medium Onion
8-10 Radishes
1/4 Cup of Lime juice (Freshly squeezed)
2/3 Cup of Honey
Cheesecloth



Step 1:

Peel off the Aloe Leaf (don't leave any green parts attached to the gel) and cut into chunks. 
Peel and cut the onion into eight parts.
Cut radishes in half.

Put the three ingredients in a food processor or blender and mix until well grind. 

Step 2:

Without adding water, put the mixture in a large pot, at medium temperature.  Simmer until it reaches the boiling point and remove from heat.

Step 3:

Place a cheesecloth in a drainer and pour the mixture in it.  Make sure to place a clean container under the drainer, to collect  the precious liquid.  Squeeze the cheesecloth until no liquid comes out of it.

Step 4:

Add the lime juice and the honey, to the collected liquid. Mix well and pour in a small jar or bottle.  Let it seat overnight by a window. Take 1 to 2 ounces several times a day while symptoms persist.  Salud!
Sadly as a chronic late onset, (aged 50), asthma sufferer, (who eats honey and, in general, a very healthy diet), There is very little that can prevent the symptoms let alone cure the affliction other than drugs.. <br> <br>Medical science isn't sure what causes you to become sensitive. Current thinking is it may be triggered by a virus at some stage in your life. It appears that once sensitised your stuck with it for the duration. The symptoms improve and get worse but are always there. <br> <br>As an example a normal person of my height and age should have an air peak flow in the order of 580 l/min mine at best is 408 to 500 and may fall as low as 350 if my symptoms get worse. <br> <br>I am part of a Europe wide study into Asthma and have had access to a lot of information and various studies to try to understand the condition better. <br> <br>My personal view with little to no real science or evidence is that we are sensitise by the chemicals that leach out of the plastics we surround ourselves with - particularly in cars that stand in hot sunshine all day.
Altho born with a genetic lung disease it didn't rear it's ugly head until I was 38. It is a form of emphysema. Puffers became my life line. Years later, about 6 mos. ago I began brewing kombucha tea, mainly winter boredom, often adding lemon and ginger to the second brewing. After about 30 days of imbibing this tea the need for my puffers fell drastically from 2 puffs every 4 hrs to one puff in the morning. Also my oxygen saturations rose from 93% to 95 and sometimes 97%. Apparently that just doesn't happen and it has by md buffaloed. Whether or not this is attributable to the tea I don't know but I shall continue with it as I like the taste.
There are some interesting theories out there being studied that claim that lack of exposure to old diseases such as tuberculosis ---where your body is exposed but fights it off and grows immune---are factors giving us more asthma patients. <br>Other things being looked at are so-called &quot;germ theories&quot; that say that the more obsessive we get about our homes and surroundings being &quot;germ free&quot; (as if!) we are losing out on the protective actions and re-actions to microbes and germs our immune systems evolved with and NEED today to educate themselves. <br> <br>As the mom of one asthma patient and the grandmother of two more--all of whom have always lived in the country and been told to GO OUT SIDE AND PLAY--with many animals and no particular obsession on germs---I dunno what the answer is. <br> <br>But I do know that sadly these people DO need the rescue and maintenance inhalers and other drugs to keep them going. The big SHAME here is that the US Govt refuses to allow real competition on the compositions and pricing of these and keeps them as VERY expensive Rx items instead of the sensible approach of Europe where they are over the counter and a fraction of the cost making it easier for Europeans to be HEALTHY. <br> <br>See the recent NY Times article on this and you will see why the US is sadly the laughing stock of the world in health care and meds.
Eat honey and get outside you won't have bad allergy reactions.
Not true if you have an allergy to pollen for example...................................... Jackoffmanytrades clearly is not a doctor ;)
Whilst I'm sure Jackoffmanytrades will treasure your answer Mindmapper1, backing it up with a little fact will probably help. After all, everyone on the internet is a doctor. <br> <br>http://www.webmd.com/allergies/features/does-honey-help-prevent-allergies <br> <br>http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/10/health/10really.html?_r=0 <br> <br>Or the study the above article was based on: <br> <br>http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11868925 <br> <br>Anyway, it's a common myth, people like the idea because it's natural, it requires very little effort and is tasty. <br> <br>I tried it anyway. It didn't have any noticeable effect, but it did taste nice on toast.
Natural remedies do not have the potency needed to heal an asthma attack. I have being a sufferer of asthma for years and I have tried natural remedies along with my conventional medication. Asthma is a very dangerous condition that should be treated only by a licensed physician. The medication for asthma should be taken daily in order to control the disease and live a normal life.
