Licorice (glycyrrhiza glabra)

Ginger acts as a natural expectorant. It is used since ancient times to treat several respiratory infections and helps control bronchial asthma attacks. Freshly grated ginger, along with little turmeric can be added in milk while boiling. You may have it twice every day to get some relief from the asthma.
