  • Try proven herbal remedies

    Boswellia extract (900 mg a day), ivy leaf extract (50 drops a day), or tylophora leaf (200 to 400 mg a day) may improve breathing; children should get one-half of these amounts or less, depending on body weight

  • Clean it up

    To avoid triggering asthma attacks, control household and workplace irritants such as dust, mold, smoke, chemicals, and animal dander, and dietary triggers like certain food additives

  • Keep a healthy body weight

    Shed extra pounds to improve breathing and decrease the need for medications

  • See an allergist

    Find a specialist to help you build tolerance to allergens
