What is asthma?

Asthma is a breathing disorder characterized by spasm and swelling of the bronchial airways along with excessive excretion of a viscous mucus that can also make breathing difficult. Asthma is rising rapidly, especially in children.

Reasons often given to explain the rise in asthma include obesity, and increased stress on the immune system due to factors such as air/water pollution, and genetic manipulation of food.

Herbs for asthma

To properly treat asthma, you must use herbs with the following properties:

  • bronchodilator, to dilate the bronchi and decrease resistance in the respiratory tract, therefore increasing airflow to the lungs.
  • antispasmodics, in order to ease spasms in the muscles, and therefore facilitate respiration.
  • anti-inflammatory, to reduce irritation.

And:

  • If you have a tendency to have mucus that goes in your lungs you can also add an expectorant herb, to help prevent buildup of mucus and saliva in the lungs.
  • If you think there is a risk of infection, you can also add an herb with antiseptic/antimicrobial properties to help reduce the secondary infection.

Now, let have a look at the best herbs with their properties:

Radal has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties and is a bronchodilator. That one of the best plants to treat astham, used a lot in Chilean traditional medicine for bronchial troubles and asthma. This is due its unique broncodilatador properties

The three following plants all share antispasmodic properties. You should choose one of them

  • Tsulilago has antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Valerian (antispasmodic, sedative): The whole plant is helpful in cough, asthma and other bronchitis conditions. It reduces the discomfort of asthma attacks.
  • Horehound: (antispasmodic, expectorant) is generally used as a preventive treatment for asthma.

Finally, should you have a lot of mucus in your respiratory tract, one of these herbs can help:

  • Eucaliptus has antiseptic and expectorant properties. Research suggests that eucalyptol, a chemical found in eucalyptus oil, might be able to break up mucous in people with asthma.
