(NaturalNews) There has been a resurgence of asthma and other lung issues, especially among children, over the past few decades. Whether from chemtrails, outrageously increased vaccination schedules, or both - and more - is undetermined.

But the suffering is the same, and the mainstream medical solutions of inhaled steroids or calcium blockers offer short term relief with long term health hazards.

As drugs, their usefulness tends to diminish in effectiveness or duration, promoting increased use that causes those other health issues to come on more quickly. It is a vicious cycle that can lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, mental disorders, cardiac arrest and premature death.

That's why both herbal remedies for lung issues, khella and lobelia, should be primary choices for asthma, COPD and other breathing problems.

About khella

Khella, commonly called bishop's weed, is both a vasodilator (dilating blood vessels), and a bronchial dilator. It accomplishes both without caffeine-like or other stimulation affecting the adrenal glands.

It also acts to smooth and strengthen heart muscles to enable a stronger heart beat. Khella even promotes gall bladder bile flow and helps eliminate urinary tract stones. In other words, unlike pharmaceuticals designated for asthma that destroy health, khella promotes good cardiac and overall health.

Khella or bishop's weed is available wherever you can find over-the-counter natural herbal remedies. It can come in extracts or tinctures, tablets, or used as a tea. The extracts and tablets are recommended for daily use.

Though not recommended for use during an asthma attack, using khella daily as recommended can go far with preventing or minimizing acute attacks. This will at least minimize or diminish the use of asthma pharmaceuticals for acute attacks.

Dosage varies slightly, depending on the delivery type, but taking one of those doses just before going to bed is important for asthmatics. It is common for asthmatics to endure asthma attacks that interrupt sleep patterns needed for restoring immune system energy.

Khella can be used during a bout with bronchitis to ease up congestion and open bronchial passages and airways. It is even better to use it in conjunction with lobelia, which tends to offer immediate relief from asthma attacks or other bronchial based breathing problems.

About lobelia

Lobelia, also known as Indian tobacco, was actually banned by the FDA a couple of decades ago, but it's available again from almost any herbal source now. Maybe it was banned because it was effective and natural?

The FDA used the alkaloid toxic angle, but the toxic effects happen only if you take an impossible amount of lobelia in a short time period. There were no adverse events reported to the FDA. The FDA's decision was academic or business related to Big Pharma's whims.

The famed Master Herbalist Dr. John Christopher used it often for relieving acute asthma attacks. He considered it one of the world's most powerful healing herbs. His Herbal Legacy site notes there hasn't been one proven death from lobelia (

Lobelia actually offers almost immediate relief during those periods of excess congestion and breathing difficulties often associated with asthma, COPD and asthma. However, it is important to not exceed recommended dosages.

A couple of khella cautions

It takes a few weeks of daily use with khella before attacks diminish. Using it during attacks is considered unreliable. Lobelia is better for fast relief during acute attacks.

Keep within recommended dosages. Prolonged excessive use can create liver complications. Avoid using it if there are bleeding problems. Too much exposure to sunlight while using khella can cause skin hypersensitivity to sunlight.
