Q. how can you naturally relieve a minor asthma attack in a baby

don't have albutoral on our trip what can we do
A1P.S---there are NO natural meds for and asthma attack after it has started,one of the things that i find is that natural meds work to pre-vent disease,IF you take it right,for long period of time.--the active ingredients in natural meds are in very small amounts,therefore you have to take alot of fruit,veg,ect---coffee can stop an asthma attack--but you cant drink coffee in that large amount,and then you will be hyperactive--and your heart rate will go up--headach can acure.mrfoot56
A2HI,you need to learn about asthma,first of all contac your doctor and ask him to call in a meds order at the pharmace,in the town that you are in.asthma is a killer because you never know how bad it is going to get. In my world their is no small asthma attacks, because asthma is a progresive disease,that starts out small,and gets bad fast. I am a retired respiratory therapist,i work on people with cardiopulmonary disease--my suggestion to you is to find a hospital in the area,if you cant get your doctor,whenever your child get sick with asthma take it SERIOUS--THERE ARE NO SMALL ASTHMA ATTACKS---mrfoot56--peace
A3there is a big problem with alternative medicine. where is the line between western medicine and alternative one goes- there is a pretty much clear line. but where where alternative medicine stops and bull#$%#$ starts- no one knows for sure. so they may be things that will work, maybe things that won't and sometimes even things that will cause damage.
