My Baby Has Asthma - UPDATE

My son had bronchiolitis when he was three months old, then it turned into asthma. Once he gets a cold, he starts coughing and then wheezing. So I have to give him the rescue medicine Albuterol via a nebulizer and Pulmicort as a daily dose. It takes a week or two to recover everytime he gets sick and I feel I am pumping so much medicine into his body. Does anyone have the same experience? How do you deal with it and have you explored more natural approach (herbs, chiropractic care)? I would love a Mom's input.
