Sneezing, dry cough, drained with fever and a terrible headache, these are just symptoms of having fever and flu and although somewhat it’s difficult to manage, you can still get some natural remedies even at home when you have fever and flu.
I have drink several ginger tea with lemon and honey, drink water more than what i can normally consume , blow my nose, gargled, used some chest rubs but still the feeling is different and somehow really uncomfortable.
What i can definitely feel is that the flow of air in my lungs is being obstructed and suddenly, I have difficulty of breathing, shortness of breath and my chest tighten as if i am struggling to breath, exact feeling i had two years ago which led me to the Emergency room on the nearby hospital.
Indeed, I could not take it anymore and i have to be rushed again to the hospital because of one definite conclusion. I am having a severe asthma attack , checked by the nurse, my breathing is fast and above normal, i’m boiling with fever and was given an oxygen to help me breathe while waiting for the doctor.
It help me for a while but my chest is heavy and i know that there is only one solution to have and that’s the help of a nebulizer.
They say that children have a high risk to have asthma but adults are also not exempted especially if there is something that can trigger an asthma attack and those are dust , smoke, emotional upset, changes in weather, ingested allergens like foods and drug and viral respiratory infections which just like on my part, influenza and pneumonia. (and that is where i think flu vaccine is indeed very important)
At this time, i’m still having dry cough and dizziness but just as you guess, even sickness could not prevent me. They say that asthma has no known cure, over the counter medicines are just there to help you ease the pain, so why choose those when you know there are natural remedies that can help you relieve the it.
Here are some natural asthma remedy that you can check out, some were passed upon by the oldies and some I have found on the net. There’s no harm on trying especially if it can ease the pain you have in your chest.
Home Remedies for Asthma
- Mix 1 tsp honey in very hot water and sip slowly . This can help remove the phlegm.
- Six cloves of garlic boiled in a half glass of water with 1 tsp of honey can also help , take this twice a day.
- Herbal tea with ginger and two small lemon (calamansi)
- Steam inhalation with eucalyptus or camphor (if you can’t find one, you can easily grab some vicks vaporub)
- Boiled some turmeric or ginger and add a teaspoon of honey.
- Green tea can help and it relaxes my mind too.
Asthma is indeed one health problem we all hate, one thing to beat this is to have a balanced body which we can achieve by having a green healthy lifestyle away from the allergens.
