Using Essential Oils To Treat Allergies And Asthma

Posted on Wednesday 18 August 2010

Allergies and asthma can be treated in natural and convenient ways. Natural methods, instead of drug methods, prevent harmful toxins and chemicals from entering your body. Drug related methods have negative side effects, which most natural methods do not.

One natural method that works with treating asthma and allergies is the art of acupuncture. Acupuncture incorporates powerful techniques and points that can that can treat and improve how your lungs function. Talk to your acupuncturists about ways you can improve your lung capacity.

Cleaning out your nose can also help with allergies. Cleansing the nose keeps the nasal passage clear, and your throat clear as well. This is a good option for people who have bad allergies. It is also often recommended for people suffering from colds.

A good way to clean out your nose is with a saltwater solution. Saline, or saltwater solution, should be squirted through the nose. When it is swallowed you simply have to spit out the solution so you don’t have to swallow it.

Essential oils are another great choice. Good choices to use are Roman Chamomile, Lavender, Eucalyptus and Frankincense. These essential oils can be mixed together to help you breathe easier.

You can rub theessential oils directly on your chest a few times a day if you want. Another option is to put it in a warm bath. Essential oils can be applied on washcloths as well, or through a humidifier. Always speak to your aromatherapist beforehand to make sure you know how to use the oil correctly.

Herbal formulas are another natural method that helps improve your immune system. Certain Chinese herbal formulas can help improve the strength of the body. Ding Chaun Wan is one of the most popular Chinese herbal formulas being used for asthma.

Supplements can also be used to help with asthma or allergy symptoms. Supplements, such as cod liver oil or grape seed extract, work well with the body. Both of these supplements aid the immune system, as well as reduce inflammation in the body.
