I am wondering if anyone knows of a supplement, herb or other that will calm inflamation caused by asthma? I am looking for an alternative that is safer.

There are a few herbs that calm inflamation caused by asthma. I have used them to good effect. The best company I have found is Herb Pharm . The first herb is called Khella. Very helpful in controlling asthma. They also include it in a compound called Calm Breath, I recommend it.
Another herb that helps: Lobelia – also highly recommended.
Also two other compounds: Turmeric/Chamomile and if you’re allergic Eyebright/Nettle. I actually take ALL of the above compounds because I’m VERY allergic during pollen season (the spring) and I’ve found that the herbs coupled with acupunture (low cost community clinics around – search for them online) make a VERY effective treatment. Good Luck!
I just began receiving magnesium solution I.V.s at my doctor’s office for asthma. I think it may be classified as homeopathic medicine. I am due for a series of 12 I.V.s over 6 weeks. Already had four. Can’t tell yet, but maybe they help. I’m now off prednisone.
