herbal asthma remedies

Many of us swear by herbal remedies like Echinacea and St John's Wort... but do they really work?

But while sometimes only prescribed drugs and medical treatments are suitable, the British Herbal Medicine Association (BHMA) points out that even today, herbs can be ideal complements to modern medicines.

It's estimated that more than a third of us regularly use traditional herbal medicines to treat minor ailments, such as coughs and colds, back pain, sleep problems and stress.

Do herbal medicines work?

Some studies have found that certain traditional herbal remedies can have a beneficial effect. Researchers from King's College London, for example, examined traditional Indian diabetes treatments and cancer treatments used in China and Thailand, and found they had useful properties. In the case of diabetes, extracts from the curry leaf tree were found to have positive effects in helping regulate the release of glucose into the bloodstream.

Another King's study found 'promising activity' against lung cancer cells from certain Eastern plants, particularly the Thai aquatic weed Ammannia baccifera and the Chinese plant Illicium verum or star anise.

Healing with natural herbs are great and some herbs can help you immensly but you do need to know what you are taking and how these herbs work. Eucalyptus is often used to asthma and other sinus and airway problems.
