There are many medical treatments for asthma. Some simple natural remedies can also provide relief from symptoms.

Here are the top 10 home remedies for asthma. Also, consult your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.


1. Ginger

Ginger is a well-known natural treatment for various ailments including asthma. Researchers have found that it can help reduce airway inflammation and inhibit airway contraction.

Plus, studies indicate that it has compounds that may enhance the muscle relaxant effects of certain asthma drugs.

  • Mix equal quantities of ginger juice, pomegranate juice and honey. Consume one tablespoon of this mixture two or three times a day.
  • Alternatively, you can mix one teaspoon of ground ginger in one and a half cups of water and take one tablespoon of this mixture at bedtime.
  • Cut one inch of ginger into small pieces and add it to a pot of boiling water. Let it steep for five minutes, allow it to cool down and then drink it.
  • To detoxify your lungs, prepare a fenugreek decoction by boiling one tablespoon of fenugreek seeds in a cup of water and mixing one teaspoon each of ginger juice and honey in it. Drink this solution every morning and evening.
  • You can also eat raw ginger mixed with salt.

2. Mustard Oil

The nutritional properties of figs promote respiratory health and help drain phlegm and alleviate breathing difficulties.

  1. Wash three dried figs and soak them in a cup of water overnight.
  2. In the morning, eat the soaked figs and drink the fig water on an empty stomach.

Continue this home treatment for a couple of months.

4. Garlic

The following garlic remedy can help clear congestion in your lungs during the early stages of asthma.

  1. Boil two or three cloves in one-quarter cup of milk.
  2. Allow it to cool to room temperature and then drink it.

5. Coffee

The caffeine in regular coffee can help control asthma attacks because it acts as a bronchodilator. Hot coffee helps relax and clear the airways to help you to breathe easier. The stronger the coffee, the better the result.

But try not to drink more than three cups of black coffee in a day. If you do not like coffee, you can opt for a cup of hot black tea. Do not use caffeine as a regular treatment though.

6. Eucalyptus Oil

Pure eucalyptus oil is an effective treatment for asthma symptoms because of its decongestant properties. Research indicates that it has a chemical called eucalyptol which can help break up mucus.

  • Just put a few drops of eucalyptus oil on a paper towel and keep it by your head when sleeping so that you breathe in the aroma.
  • You can also put two to three drops of eucalyptus oil in a pot of boiling water and breathe in the steam. Try to take deep breaths for faster results.

  1. I have more trouble in cause of asthma how can I cure.Sometime water through the nose continue how can I stop this I am very trouble

  2. Thanks for all these contributions. Even though I have read a lot about asthma, these sound more real since they are coming from individuals. I just gave my 11 year old son who is asthmatic ginger, garlic, honey, coffee, turmeric. I made him inhale ginger steam, I used the same hot ginger to make him black coffee mixed with honey. I will put onions by his bedside right away as I have read here. I do hope he gets a sound sleep. Thanks a bunch.

  3. A lot of asthma symptoms comes from allergies. Good natural remedy increasing immunity is onion.

    To make onion syrup cut onions and put them with a sugar layer by layer in a bowl. Two spoons everyday is very helpful in treating cough and increasing immunity in general.

    Also very overlooked is an onion skin (the brown external). You can make some kind of tea with it, taste is surprisingly good, and it doesn’t smell like onion at all.

  4. Magnesium can also help…choose a form that is easy to digest such as capsules of magnesium citrate and malate. Also soak in a warm tub of water with magnesium flakes or epsom salts which are high in magnesium. Magnesium helps relieve tension especially in the muscles. Many people who are asthmatics are magnesium deficient.

  5. Hi Every one, I Suffered from asthama from last 3 years. My age 25 years. I consult lot of doctors. but no solution. When I use doctors medicine, it safe but when it completes again it start asthama. Doctor says it came by allergies. My quetion is “Is this curable!!!!!!!!!!” . In This stage is this curable!!!!. How I use perfect natural remedies. please help me…..

  6. I’m SO glad I found this site tonight. I have been having asthma problems several times a day recently, but I don’t want to use my inhaler that often. I was looking for natural remedies that wise people have discovered over the years.

    I discovered that luckily we just happened to have organic ginger powder & honey, so I immediately boiled up some water & poured it over ginger (1 TB) & honey (1TB) & starting sipping it & immediately felt relief! 30 minutes later, no more wheezing or tight chest! Wow!

    I also want to try some of the other suggested remedies so I can see what works for me — and variety is always good. Figs & pomegranate sound wonderful. And eucalyptus, yes. I am also going to get fresh ginger to boil up as tea when I pick up figs, etc.

    This has been a life-saver this evening! Thank you, kind people, for taking time to share your home renedies — enough of these dangerous & expensive drugs!
