Asthma can be extremely scary.

Especially if your child ever has an asthma attack and is struggling to catch their breath.

It can be a pretty helpless feeling as a parent.

In this short guide, we’re going to look at some of the common causes… and how you can quickly nip it in the bud!

COMMON CAUSES

Unfortunately asthma is quite common.

It’s often caused by various types of foods. Including cows milk, which is an allergen and can increase asthma symptoms.

If it’s caused by allergens, I’d recommend local raw honey and a stinging nettle tincture.

But, if you really want to stop asthma in its tracks.

I recommend…

MULLEIN

Mullein grows across the United States.

Not only is it effective… it’s also versatile in how it can be consumed.

TEA:

You can consume it as a tea.

This is as simple as taking your mullein, and throwing it in a teapot to steep.

Bonus would be to add some raw honey to sweeten and ease allergen related asthma.

I’d recommend consuming a few times a day for symptoms to subside, and actually prevent future attacks.

SMOKED:

The only thing you can smoke that will actually alleviate asthma.

Take mullein and light it on fire (it will keep burning since it’s quite oily). Simply inhale it through each nostril separately.  

I’ve seen this instantly stop asthma attacks in children many times over again.

It’s extremely effective.

VITAMIN B5

They’ve found that many people with asthma are low in B5.

It’s a pantothenic acid that is extremely important.

So, you want to start eating B5 rich foods.

Such as legumes, yogurt and raw milk.

If you can stomach it, livers and kidneys are also rich in B5s.

Don’t worry if you can’t, because fish, shellfish, pork, mushrooms, avocados, sweet potatoes, broccoli are also all great sources.

MAGNESIUM & FOLIC ACID:

You also want to make sure you’re getting adequate levels of magnesium and folic acid.

Eat high-carotenoid foods like carrots, tomatoes, leafy greens, berries, sweet potatoes. As well as foods high in folic acid, like leafy greens, nuts and beans, and cruciferous vegetables. So, all of that, and you should do pretty well.

HONORABLE MENTIONS:

Lastly, ensure you’re getting enough Vitamin D and Omega-3s. Supplement your diet with a probiotic on a daily basis…

If you follow everything listed here… those scary asthma attacks should become a thing of the past.

Until next time.

Stay healthy,
