I'm an asthmatic patient when I was a kid... I have been visiting the doctor regularly for this ailment. But someone has told my mother to try using lagundi for my asthma. Gradually my asthmatic episodes has lessen and I feel much better after resorting to herbal medications. Since then I started using herbal medicines. When I heard that soursop plant has certain compounds that gradually kills the cancer cells while leaving healthy cells unaffected, then this must be the kind of healing that everyone would love to hear. This must be a reminder that we have powerful medicines in nature we just have to rediscover it.

You are right there are many plants around us that are usually neglected. Most of them are considered grass but it has the healing power to some sickness. I used to take herbal too like oregano, malunggay, serpentina and others. I even made encapsulated dried malunggay leaves as supplement. Another tip to strenghten your lungs and avoid asthma is by exposing your lungs to morning sunlight for about 30-minutes. However, you should do this after taking bath . Doing this before taking bath might result into accumulation of water in your lungs. Hope this will help you and reduce your asthma attacks.

Yes this is really helpful specially to my son who just inherit my childhood disease. But I'm thankful that my wife too is a herbalist, she uses onion and garlic with honey in milk as treatment to my son's asthma and now at least its episodes are getting lesser.

I can also share to you a possible way to help your son's lungs stronger naturally. Expose your son's back in morning sunlight (not bare) for 30 minutes everyday. this makes the lung stronger. However, you must avoid taking bath after exposure to sun becuase water might accumulate in the lungs that may worsen the condition. It is better to take a bath first before doing this. I learned this from the natural doctor I listened every weekends.

Herbal medicines helps a lot. It is very safe and effective rather than low cost generics medicines. I suggest that you should have at lease one herbal vitamin to stronger your immune system. But make sure that you did a research before you take it.
