BACK TO ASK THE HERBALIST
ANSWERS FROM CARLOS:
I have bronchial asthma from a kitchen fire. Lungs ok,
bronchial tubes not. I have tried most herbs to no
avail-still on inhaler and when it gets real bad
steroids, want to get off of them ....they are not good
for me. Any suggestions ? You may know something I do
My first thought is that you employ a dehumidifier, and
add to the water 30 drops Tea tree oil and 20 drops
essential oil of Eucalyptus. Your diet is very
important. Avoid all dairy products, white flour
products and white sugar. These 3 are mucus-forming.
Moderate your intake of caffeine. Avoid also red meats
and all fried foods.
Here a simple remedy from Switzerland: Dilute 1 drops of
essential oil of Eucalyptus into a shot of good brandy,
then add to one cup of hot water to which you have added
some honey and lemon. Here's another: In a cup of rice
white, add one tablespoon of grated Ginger and leave to
stand for 3 days or longer, blend into a glassful of
honey, dilute one tablespoon in a glass of water and
drink one cup per day.
There are also several traditional Chinese formulas that
may be of great help, such as: Qing Qi Hua Tan Wan and
