Yes, Dambel is very potent herb for cough and Asthma. Its English name is : False Mangosteen. I have tried it Hasan. It has provided a great relief to me. But I guess you need to be cautious before trying this herb, without an expert's advice.

No, I don'tthink so that it is safe to take the leaves of this herb during pregnancy. The best thing you can do is keep yourself away from the allergens that may trigger your asthma. Keep your room free of pets. Consult your doctor before taking any medicine.

29 Aug 2016
Can be taken in the form of powder, decoction or syrup. The roots of this plant are used to cure Asthma and many other disorders. Yes, you may give this herb to your father. The tea prepared from roots is very effective for Asthma. The best herb is Garlic. Take 2 cloves of garlic. Crush them with your palm, do not use in metallic tool to chop or crush it. Or you may use a mortar and pestle to crush it.
Keep it aside for 15 minutes and then after 15 minutes, give the c rushed cloves to your father. This is very effective way to cure asthma.

Mul Raj ji. I will suggest you to look for this herb in your local herbal store. Or, you may buy it from the vendors who sell the herb. I think, you can get it from a nursery or a botanical garden. You will have to do your own research in this matter. all the very best. !! a few month ago, i was looking for a herb called Bamboo Silica. had to look around a lot. Consulted with my friends and then got it. So, you will have to look around.

Dear Harry,

Dambel is an effective cure for Asthma. Boil 3-4 leaves of the herb in a cup of water. Steep them for few minutes. Strain and consume the tea on an empty stomach in the morning. Take it for 15 days and analyze the condition.

It will regulate the frequency of attacks of breathlessness and bring the respiratory problems at ease too.
