What ingredients are used in natural asthma treatments?
Asthma sufferers can reduce or eliminate their need for steroid-containing prescription medication through lifestyle changes and alternative therapies, asserts James Rouse, N.D. These changes include reducing exposure to cigarette smoke, indoor and outdoor pollution, and common allergens; exercising regularly; avoiding overly processed foods; and supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, and antioxidants. He also names several herbal medicines, such as ma huang, lobelia and licorice, which should only be taken under the supervision of a doctor. These substances work by controlling inflammation, reducing asthma symptoms.
