  • Try deep breathing. I know, I know. But I have asthma and my doctor suggested this and it works. Keep calm. Try running a vaporizer, especially when you are sleeping.

  • I was told when I couldn't get to my inhaler, put your hands above your head (Helps elongate your lung space) and take deep slow breaths.

  • there was a study in austrailia that had people practice yoga breathing regularly, and after some time, most people didn't need their inhalers anymore! i know someone else that quit eating meat, and never used her inhaler again...and one more person that quit using harsh household cleaners ( switched to vinegar and baking soda) and never used his inhaler agian!

  • go in the bathroom shut the door and turn your shower on as hot as it will and sit on the toilet for about 10-15 minutes
