What are some asthma remedies that do not require medication to try at home to alleviate symptoms without seeking emergency care?

Be wary: Caffeine (coffee/tea) is a close relative of a common asthma drug but taking enough to help may have worrisome side effects.Some use relaxation techniques to handle mild symptoms.Be wary of avoiding treatment.The case fatality rate in asthma attacks has not declined much in decades in spite of advances in treatment options.
