Breath Easier With Natural Asthma Treatments

Asthma is a chronic lung disease with symptoms ranging from wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, to increased mucus production. Sufferers explore alternatives to conventional treatments for relief from their asthma symptoms.

In a survey of 48 multicultural parents of children with asthma, 81% of the parents used one or more forms of alternative or complementary therapy to treat their child’s asthma. These therapies included prayer, herbal teas, vitamins, supplements, and massage. African-American parents were more likely to rely on prayer, and Hispanic parents were more likely to use herbal and massage therapies.
