I appreciate your concern for your mother. The question however is very inadequate. Almost all lung diseases can cause breathlessness. What is your mother's diagnosis? Is it asthma, COPD, ILD, heart disease or something else (or a combination of many)? You said it is asthma. Has it been confirmed? She is asthmatic since how long?

The extent of breathlessness is severe. Remember, asthma is a treatable disease and so severe breathlessness concerns us. Your short history points toward COPD than asthma. Has she undergone any X-ray or spirometry? Has her Foracort dose been titrated?

Home remedies will depend on the cause of her illness.
