Herbs alone can work wonders in helping your child, and a few additional measures will contribute to the success of these remedies. Since asthma is associated with allergies, keep the air your child breathes as clean as possible. Air filters help to eliminate many common airborne allergens: pollen, mites, mold, animal dander and dust. Check that your air-conditioning and heating-system filters are not recycling dust through your home.
You might also remove feather pillows and comforters from your child's bed, and wash his toys to see if either of these measures makes a difference. In addition, avoid giving your child foods to which people with asthma tend to be sensitive, especially fruit dried with sulfites (additives used to help vegetables keep their color) or foods containing the flavor-enhancer MSG (monosodium glutamate), which is used in some Chinese restaurants and in many processed foods. Studies show that one way to prevent asthma in the first place is by breastfeeding your baby; breastfeeding is known to help build up the natural immunities that prevent children from developing allergies.
