My Son has Cough Variant Asthma. What do you think of this report? Worth Trying?
amcate responded:
There's nothing wrong with trying alternative health...I would just let your doctors know if there are herbs or what not involved as some may interact with Western medicines. Most allergists I've known are fine with trying to reduce asthma medicines in conjunction with alternative health measures. I wouldn't go off the Western asthma medicines without first talking to the asthma doctor.

Hi and thank you for posting!

Here is some more information on natural remedies for asthma that you may find interesting and helpful. As amcate said, it is important that you talk with your son's doctor before starting any kind of alternative asthma treatment -- especially any herbs which may react with medicines or end up making your son's asthma worse.

Best wishes,
