Blatta Orientalis [Blatta]

      This Indian drug in the 3x trituration is regarded as almost a specific for the worst forms of asthma. Take it twice a day.

Sumbul [Sumb]

      According to Dr. Mott Sumbul, a few drops, about 10, in hot water, sipped, will give relief in the spasm of asthma, and in continued small doses will cure. The 2x in medicated pellets or tablets, three or four times a day, is more convenient and perhaps as effective.

Onions and Honey.- The juice of onions, or the pounded pulp of onions, mixed with honey, is an old remedy for the phlegmatic person whose lungs are stuffed and breathing difficult.

Garlic had, of old, a reputation as being good for asthmatics.

Grindelia robusta [Grin]

      In about 5 drop doses of the tincture, grindelia rob. is said to be a good remedy for chronic asthma; and for chronic bronchitis.

Natrum sulphuricum [Nat-s]

      According to Grauvogl Natrum sulph.6x is the one true remedy for asthma. It has cured many cases.

Gaultheria [Gaul]

      It has been stated that about 4 tablets of Gaultheria 0 twice a day, will slowly, but surely give relief in asthma. Gaultheria is the true oil of wintergreen, not the synthetic.

Asafoetida [Asaf]

      A German doctor, Lobenthal, noted that in case where overeating, unusual exertion or something out of routine of life brought on an attack of asthma that Asafoetida 3. would give relief, or cure. He gave it frequently, four or five doses a day.
