No cure but: There are many new drugs to control asthma but you should try the usual and less expensive ones first. I note that you are not on any controller drug. There are many drugs blocking specific agents which cause asthma in the pipeline also if conventional treatment failed. Consider seeing an allergist who can assist you in avoidance measures and treatment including allergy shots.

Lifestyle change: Avoid all milk products since the milk protein causes respiratory tract inflammation. Also avoid grains, lentils. Consume veggies, flesh foods, olive oil. Getting 30 -45 min of sunshine at noon daily or taking vitamin D3 10,000 IU/day and taking a good probiotic (not yogurt) help reduce inflammation Yoga breathing exercises 10-30 min/day help too. This may help avoid the need for meds
