Asthma is a condition where airways narrow, swell, and become inflamed. This can cause shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, and excess mucus production.

Symptoms of Asthma Coughing often worsens at night or early in the morning, preventing sleep. Wheezing is whistling, rattling, or squeaky breathing. Feeling like something is sitting on or squeezing your chest. Either you can't get enough air in or out.

Natural Asthma Remedies Typically, doctors treat asthma symptoms with steroid inhalers and bronchodilators. Steroid inhalers help quickly reduce inflammation to open the airway.

Moderate Exercise Intense exercise may make asthma symptoms worse but moderate or mild exercise can help strengthen the lungs and reduce inflammation.

Reduce Environmental Irritants Since environmental irritants can cause or exacerbate asthma, reducing them makes sense as a preventative measure.

Deal With Stress Stress is more of a health risk than many of us realize. In fact, high levels of stress can completely undo all of the other healthy things you may be doing (like eating well, getting enough sleep, and exercising regularly).

Try Himalayan Salt Therapy Some asthma sufferers swear by salt therapy for their symptoms. Salt caves or Himalayan salt inhalers are two ways of experiencing salt therapy.

Use Essential Oils When used safely, essential oils can be a great addition to a natural remedy kit. These essential oils are great for easing asthma symptoms: Peppermint Lavender, eucalyptus, tea tree, and roman chamomile
