Stay away from smoking. Smoking makes your asthma symptoms worse and increases the probability of an asthma attack. More so, smoking reduces the effect your asthma medication has, leaving you more prone to enhanced symptoms. Get annual flu shots. A cold or the flu can make your symptoms worse and harder to control. So, make sure you get your annual shots to reduce the risk of a severe asthma attack.

Ginger and honey. Both ginger and honey help with severe asthma by soothing the throat and reducing cough. You can mix both ginger and honey in a hot drink like tea for some instant relief. While there are no studies that prove that they help tackle symptoms of asthma, they do help in curing a cold or cough that can often lead to an asthma attack.

Omega fatty acids. Omega-3 oils come with several health benefits. Found in fish and flax seeds, they may help decrease airway inflammation and improve lung function. Since there’s quite a lot we don’t know about how omega-3 oils can help reduce symptoms of asthma, it’s best to consult your doctor before you begin the dose.
