Breathless and left exhausted is what asthma attacks do to me. I have tried may home remedies to relieve them naturally from honey to black pepper on a banana, but none of them work well. Recently I was having severe asthma attacks and not even my prescription asthma medication was working. I ended up doing a bit of research online and came across licorice as an herbal remedy for relieving severe asthma attacks. Soon after, I had my boyfriend help me a medicinal cup of licorice root herbal tea with cinnamon and shortly after, I began sipping it down. Within ten minutes of sipping on the licorice root herbal tea with cinnamon, I began breathing easier and was able to rest comfortably.

These ingredients I always get from my local herbal shop because they are the most affordable there, but I always make sure I have them on hand at all times now to prevent and stop an asthma attack naturally. You may also be able to find these two herbs at your local herbal shop or whole food store as well, but again make sure they are pure and organic so you know for sure they have the medicinal properties you need to relieve your asthma attack successfully.
