Most of us that have Asthma, also tend to  carry and/or use at least one inhalor, if not more! yeah While that is 'standard' treatment for asthma, there are some other "Alternative Therapies" that may help, or assist us even further in our care.
 
Remember one thing though...make sure your Dr. approves the following for you individually!!
 
"Some studies have also shown that vitamin C improves asthma symptoms. 

Breathing exercises used in yoga have been found to help some asthmatics control breathing and relieve stress, a common asthma trigger.

Restricting dairy products and sugar has reportedly helped some children with asthma.

Some people with asthma have found that acupuncture can significantly reduce asthma attacks and improve lung function.

Biofeedback...Learning to increase the amount of air inhaled has reduced fear and anxiety during an asthma attack for some asthmatics."
