First, asthma attacks introduce large amounts of harmful free radicals to your body. You can counteract their harmful effects, which can lead to a number of serious illnesses, by taking extra doses of Vitamin C and Vitamin E each day.
Since asthma is, by nature, an inflammatory disease, you can also treat your asthma by using ginseng. This is a popular Oriental herb that has anti-inflammatory properties and can be used effectively to help manage bronchial irritation.
Use magnesium supplements to open up your lungs' air passages. 500 mg of magnesium, taken daily, can widen your bronchial tubes, facilitating easier breathing and reducing the chances of a severe asthma attack. Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and is essential to good health. Eating a wide variety of legumes, nuts, whole grains, and green, chlorophyll rich vegetables will help you meet your daily dietary need for magnesium.
Eating fish, particularly salmon & tuna, nuts, seeds and flaxseed oil -things that contain valuable omega-3 fatty acids have been proven to reduce swelling in the lungs of asthma patients as well. I would also recommend adding a fish oil supplement to the diet which can be found anywhere that sells vitamins.
