The next time you have an asthma attack, try putting a pinch of sea salt under the tongue, and drink a glass of water. If this does not work immediately, do not worry.

Many people also unknowingly suffering from dehydration. In the hectic lifestyle of today, many people do not drink enough water. To make matters worse, they usually drink coffee and tea instead of plain water. Beverages such as coffee and tea are diuretics that cause your body to lose more water. When you do not drink enough water to properly hydrate the body, the airways tend to close in an attempt to prevent water escaping as steam. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated address this problem.

As a Doctor of Medical Heilkunst and Homeopathy, I always find it fascinating to find "accidental" uses of homeopathic principles in traditional or asthma home remedies. The suggestion of the use of salt under the tongue to stop an asthma attack is explainable in terms of basic homeopathic principles, in that salt is the original substance that one of the main homeopathic remedies for asthma (Natrum Muriaticum) is made of. The second suggestion in this article to keep properly hydrated is also very important for asthma patients, as it tends to be a chronic problem for asthma sufferers. Even if all you have access to is municipal tap water, then that is the lesser of two evils compared with the chronic ill effects of dehydration.
