Broader Context of Treatment :
Our lungs are connected to our emotions in an obvious way - think about laughing or crying. If a person with asthma has difficulty in expressing his or her feelings, it is worth exploring why this should be. Bach Flower Remedies can help here. Deep breathing can strengthen our connection to our feelings and will help improve asthma, if practiced regularly. Other regular exercise, such as walking, swimming, yoga, T'ai Chi, and relaxation classes, can also help to deepen and relax your breathing.

Food sensitivities must be identified. It may pay dividends to exclude, for a time, eggs, wheat, even gluten (found in wheat, oats, barley and rye), and dairy products. The early onset of asthma is sometimes triggered off by a child not being breast-fed. Another source of concern is alcohol (wine and beer) and preserved fruit, which often contain sulphur dioxide. Many asthmatics react to as little as five parts of sulfur dioxide per million.

The whole thoracic area - back and chest - should be massaged, with particular emphasis on strokes which open out the chest and shoulders. The choice of essential oils will depend on many factors, such as whether or not there is infection present, whether the asthma is known to be an allergic response, or whether emotional factors are involved. During an actual crisis, inhaling an antispasmodic oil is the only practical herbal help, and direct sniffing from the oil bottle, or some drops put on a tissue, will be safer than a steam inhalation, as the heat of the latter will increase any inflammation of the mucous membranes and make the congestion even worse.
