What is the cure for allergic asthma?

Hi, I suffer from allergic asthma. Recently, I had a severe bout of asthma attack and had been taken to hospital for a checkup. Doctor after examining me stated I had an chronic asthma for the last 4-5 years and prescribed me Esiflo (rota-inhaler) and an aerospacer for use. I am using it for the last 2 months but I do not want to get addicted to the use of the pump. Does anybody knows of any other cure for asthma apart from the medicine, which would help me?? Your suggestion would be of great help to me.

Allergic asthma is one of the chronic conditions so it will keep triggering till the time the allergen is around you like dust, pollen grain, cold weather etc.Inhalers are the only long term usage device as medicine like cetrizine will make you feel drosy the whole day.If you are in Bangalore, then you can meet Dr. Rao around Brookefiled, Whitefield area.He is supposed to be the only board certified allergy specialist in Bangalore who has returned to India after many years as a professor at University of California,LA. This is about allopathy.Now many people claim about alternative therapies but there's no scientific evidence of it working it.You can try switching to basil tea (tulsi tea) and avoiding the asthma initiating irritants like dust by covering your nose when you go out.

What you have been given is a proven and good treatment.There's nothing like getting addicted to it as it's a common myth.I know of people using inhalers for years.it helps you lead a normal life and there's nothing to my knowledge apart from medicine that can help you.sudden asthma attacks can be much more fatal than what you had and much more troublesome than the side effects of any medicine so you continue with this.

I have allergic asthma. Once I was prescribed to take montair fx along with combihale and asthalin for 30 days. I was suggested to use asthalin liberally. After the course, my wheezing was down till a month or so. But gradually over the time the condition is that, i have it everyday. One day I took montair fx and it reduced for two days. I have been taking it since then. Now, wheezing doesn t reduce with the intake of inhalers. It reduces only with montair fx. What are the side effects of prolonged use of montair fx ? Any other remedy to cure/reduce my asthma attacks ?

Sir'
I'm a 58 yrs. old man having 5'4" and 63kgs. I would like to donate my kidney and liver. So far, by HIS grace, I'm healthy. No sugar, no pressure. Only complaint is that I'm a chronic allergic for cold. I'll take inhaler for Asthma maximum once in a month. Am i eligible for that. If so how long to recover to lead a normal life? Is both can be done at a stretch? Is my age is a hindrance for the receiver?
Kindly answer me.
Thank You
