If the medicine(s) she is currently taking isn't helping, then she needs to find another doctor. Asthma is a very serious, life threatening condition. Alternative treatments can be used in conjunction with traditional medicine, but please take her condition seriously. Asthma kills.

try going to this medicine is totally herbal, and the lady who's husband made it for her, says that it has helped her, and she has severe asthma. you can get a 6 months supply for about $100.00.

Strengthening your wive's respiration and heart endurance might help so take a walk regularly in palces where air is clean. Swimming also strengthens the heart and the lungs.
