Actually it is the caffeine in coffee that helps to improve the airway function of an asthmatic. Medical researchers found that the body cannot distinquish between caffeine and Theophylline, a drug commonly prescribed for persons with asthma. However, they caution one should never use caffeine instead of their prescribed medication. Two six-ounce cups of coffee, soda (colas) or tea or two chocolate bars contain enough caffeine to help alleviate asthma symptoms in an emergency situation. Coffee is a weak bronchodilator, and chemically related to the drug theophylline. It's been known for well over 100 years that a few cups of coffee can help during an asthma attack. If you are having severe attacks I would consult your doctor and only follow your doctors care when concerning care for your asthma.

No. If anything, it would make asthma irritating, due to the caffeine in coffee. A healthier diet would be better for asthma. Ask on!

No, inhalers are meant to aid your breathing/coughing when you have asthma. They will not assist you at playing a sport.

warm or hot coffee will stop asthma attacks and wheezing, use decaf of course so you can still sleep, if that doesn't work use a d-humidifier with a little lemon juice in the water to help clean out the lungs.

Having some strong coffee will help with asthma, if your having an immediate attack. Other preventable measures are to avoid triggers that start asthma, including staying indoors and wearing masks.

To make Kool aid. If you have Lemonade kool aid you can mix it with some vanilla sandwich cookies and some coffee creamer and have jailhouse lemon meringue pie. You can also dust your coffee balls in kool aid so they aren't so bitter tasting

Asthma treatment can vary from anti-inflammatory and bronchodilator asthma inhalers to oral medications to asthma drugs delivered in an asthma nebulizer or breathing machine. Get a better understanding of how asthma medications work so you'll know which medications can prevent asthma symptoms. Also, learn about natural asthma remedies and ways to monitor your breathing at home

It works like this: you put the coffee under the coffee machine and then press the botton then the coffee will come out. And so on so the coffee will come out.
