Asthma is a chronic disease of the lungs. Asthma inflames and narrows the airways(the tubes that carry air in and out of the lung). Inflammation makes the airways swollen and sensitive and they react strongly to certain inhaled substance. When the airways reacts, the muscle around them tightens making the airways narrower so less air flows to the lungs. Thus, an asthma patient gets frequent attacks of breathlessness.

Asthma is caused by a variety of factors. It may be due to an allergy caused by weather conditions, food, drugs, dust, perfumes, and other irritants. Here are a few natural home treatment for asthma:
