How to Treat Asthma With Coffee. Caffeine has been found to dilate bronchial tubes. It is chemically similar to asthma drugs and has been used to treat asthma since the 1800's. Numerous studies have shown the positive effects of coffee drinking used to treat asthma symptoms. Follow these steps to treat asthma with coffee.

Decide what type of coffee you want. Premium gourmet brands you grind yourself at the grocery store are most delicious--you can even create your own blend.

Make one cup of coffee when experiencing asthma symptoms. Drink only about 1/3 cup since coffee is a potent caffeine source.

Wait about 10 minutes and see if you notice positive effect on your asthma symptoms. If not, drink about 1/3 cup more.

See if you feel better after about 10 more minutes. If you are still experiencing asthma symptoms and you don't have any other medical conditions which require you to limit intake of caffeine, go ahead and drink the rest of the cup.

Notice if you feel better after 10 more minutes. If not, caffeine may not be what you need to relieve symptoms. Seek further medical treatment or use your own prescribed medication.

Tips & Warnings

  • Drink tea if coffee upsets your stomach, but you will have to drink at least twice as much to get the desired effect. Tea contains only one-fourth to one-half as much caffeine per cup as coffee.
  • Asthma is an autoimmune disease and coffee has inflammatory effects. It's best to avoid an addiction to coffee. Green tea is preferable to drink on a daily basis.
  • Drink organic coffee since regular coffee contains pesticides which can aggravate an autoimmune disorder like asthma.
