What is asthma?


Asthma is a respiratory condition which is characterized by constant attacks of gasping and coughing, frequent wheezing, labored breathing and chest congestion. The trigger for an asthma attack ranges from exercise, emotional stress, allergen and exposure to cold air.
Asthma is usually suspected if the patient endured eczema or some other allergic conditions and has other members of the family who suffer from asthma

Breathing exercises


Breathing exercises can help asthma.There are two techniques which are pretty well known, one is a yoga technique called pranayama. Pranayama is about controlled slow exhalation and inhalation, correct posture and relaxation. The focus is on using your diaphragm muscles to aid your breathing.

Buteyko exercises entail breathing from your nose rather than your mouth and exhaling for as long as you can, then holding your breath for as long as you can manage at the end of your exhale. Throughout the inhale, a collection of short shallow breaths are taken.

you can also use biofeedback to help you with your breathing, see the using a pneumograph to treat asthma page.
