Many treatments: There are many excellent safe and proven therapies for the treatment of asthma. Most treatments for asthma are now inhaled medication such that the medication can be directly inhaled into the lungs where it needs to go. Use caution when treating serious diseases with unproven therapies.

asthma: At this time there is insufficient evidence for the effectiveness of cloves in the treatment of cough or asthma to be able to recommend it.
