Chinese Herbs Effective for Asthma

A study of 211 children with mild intermittent asthma was conducted by the University of Michigan and the Beijing Heart, Lung and Blood Vessel Research Center. The study compared Chinese Herbal Medicine treatment with Western Medicine treatment. Kids taking Western Medicine were three times as likely to make hospital emergency visits, five times as likely to use bronchodilators, and twice as likely to report symptoms as compared to the kids taking Chinese herbs.
