Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceous) is a Chinese herb that helps to increase what the Chinese call wei chi, or a person's own protective energy. It also helps strengthen the lungs. Give your child one dose, twice a day, for two weeks out of every month, for six months following an asthma attack.

If your child suffers from chronic asthma, consult a homeopath to determine an appropriate constitutional remedy.

Antimonium tartaricum is a homeopathic remedy for a child who is wheezing, with a tight feeling in her chest; there may be mucus but it is difficult to cough up. If your child's symptoms match this description, give her one dose of Antimonium tartaricum 12x, 30x, 6c, or 9c every hour until symptoms lessen. Then give her one dose, three times a day, for several days or until symptoms subside.
Note: Do not use this remedy in the presence of a fever.
