An asthma attack can be a very dangerous situation, and we will have to ask you to seek professional help should such a situation arise. But if you have chosen to use a home or natural remedy to deal with the problem, the following is a suggested course of action.
Lobelia is an extremely powerful anti-spasmodic herb, and it can greatly relax one's bronchial passages during an asthma attack. In the case of convulsions, lobelia is one herb which can give very fast relief.
The great natural healer and herbalist, Dr John Christopher, used lobelia to treat asthma, and he was able to bring about recovery even in badly chronic cases lasting for many years. He used lobelia tinctures, or liquid extracts.
Of course, as with the use of any herbs or herbal remedies, it is of paramount importance that a good quality product is sourced. With good herb quality, this is probably one of the most powerful asthma attack home remedies.

A note about Asthma Attack Home Remedies - Lobelia
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
The story goes that Dr Christopher starts off by giving a patient a teaspoonful of lobelia tincture. He then waits ten minutes, before giving a second teaspoonful. And again, another ten minutes later, he gave the third teaspoonful.
After some time, the patient may begin to throw up. Lobelia is an excellent expectorant. And as lobelia helps to clear up blockages, using it at the point of an asthma attack will often cause this. Matter accumulates in the stomach and results in obstructions, and this effect of lobelia will actually help to clear the intestinal blockage, as well as get rid of mucus which has accumulated in the lungs.
According to the good doctor, after 40 years of practice, the most number of teaspoons of lobelia tincture he has had to use for any patient was three. The reason for this was that, each time a patient was brought to him, it was at a critical time of the disease, the peak, which was exactly the best time for overcoming the ailment. This is a very interesting philosophy indeed, one which conventional medicine today will find extremely hard to comprehend.
Point to note - lobelia, when taken in excess, can also cause one to throw up. If a teaspoonful causes nausea, cut back on the dosage at first.
It is also said that the leaves and flowers of the lobelia plant, too, have powerful antispasmodic effects on the lungs when they are smoked. Some persons who suffer from asthma can thus actually experience relief by smoking them when spasms strike - this is another interesting remedy for an asthma attack.
Lobelia is also said to be useful for other bronchial or spasmodic-related issues.
Another possible asthma attack home remedy is the use of a valerian decoction, with some cayenne added to the mix, to help relieve spasms.
