Asthma herbal remedies: cloverBelow is a list of herbs that are helpful for asthma and other lung diseases. Some of the herbs strengthen your immune system and contribute to your overall health and vitality. This is an informational list only and does not diagnose, prescribe, or treat any issue you might have. Please read the disclaimer. Herbs are a nourishing part of my life everyday and I highly recommend herbs as an ally on your own path to health.

Where to get high quality, affordable, organic herbs for asthma and bronchitis? The same place I do!

I have links next to every herb I describe so you can purchase bulk organic herbs at very affordable prices. The service is excellent and the shipping is pretty fast. I also like that I can sample a small bag (1/4 pound) of herbs to see if I like the taste and they work for me. Then, when I find herbs I really like, I can order multiple pounds of high-quality herbs for my family and myself. Some of the herbs, like the nourishing, everyday herbs, I buy 5 pounds at a time. Sometimes the herbs I want are out of stock, so this ensures I never run out.

Elecampane can be used as a respiratory tonic for people with asthma and can also help to speed the recovery process for lingering lung infections. This root is both a diuretic and a diaphoretic. Drink a hot decoction of the root to induce sweating and to help break a fever. I add apple juice to the tea to make it taste better.
