I drink hot peppermint tea when I am feeling tight.  Really helps to open up the air ways.  Although if you have acid reflux, it may not be such a good idea.  I drink it anyway, the benefits to my asthma out weight the reflux problems.

 

I also use an oil from the health food store to help open my nose if it's stuffy.  I don't believe I can give the name on here.  I found it at a famers market and it also helps with aching joints to rub it on.  If I am feeling like I won't be able to get to sleep right away, I also rub it on my sinuses and forhead , some how it helps me to go to sleep better.  If you want the name you can email me, but please write from the asthma forum on the subject line.  I will not open any mail up if I don't know who it is.

Good luck, but try the peppermint tea.  I have also made a tea out of elderberry, peppermint and euclyptus.  tastes good and is good for the immune system too.


back to square #1- off meds for now-dx with fibro.  Have a positive ANA. . Pain reliever. lodine- possibly neurotin 300mg, (not sure about that yet) sublingual B-12 , Chronic shortness of breath, sinus infections.  Asthma/COPD.

if you buy them pre-blended (ready to use), u can just breath them in from the bottle, or put them in an oil burner, which will allow the scent to disprell around the room

I use green tea twice a day...a little bitter but add a teaspoon of honey...eases airways and a great detoxer.I also make up my own hot blackberry tea.Jusy put a handful of fresh or frozen berries into a mug and pour over boiling water and allow to defuse for 3 minutes.Stir and add a teaspoonful of brown sugar to sweeten plus a pinch of ground ginger...delicious and soothing.Can also use blueberries,blackcurrants or redcurrants. Breath easy Hugs Groovey.

Eucalyptus Oil rubbed on the feet daily can help keep the airway more open. My Niece visited from out of town and she has Asthma. She put the oil on her feet while here and said it seemed to reduce the tightness in her chest. Make sure you get 100% theraputic grade oil, or it may contain contaminants that you wouldn't want to put on your body.

My husband says inhaling the steam from freshly brewed coffee can open his airway when he is in the midst of a mild asthma attack.

Razzle is right in that coffee can also help...
My pcp (primary care physician) told me peppermint tea.
