Both hands: Press together the fingernails of the middle fingers and keep other fingers extended. In case of an acute asthma attack, first do the Bronchial Mudra (Number 4) for 4 to 6 minutes. Then use this Asthma Mudra until the breathing calms down. For long-term treatment, use these two mudras five times every day for 5 minutes.
Unfortunately, I am not one of those fortunate people who once had asthma but got rid of it through a radical cure with medication and never felt anything again. Many members of my family on my father’s side had asthma, so it is a “dear” family heirloom. But despite this, I live without any medication because I follow certain rules of behavior. My tips are sure to help asthma patients, which is why I’m passing them on here:
During cold weather, never breathe through your mouth because the bronchial tubes will become inflamed and congested. Try not to be in a hurry because every incidence of stress activates the adrenal glands. Adrenaline promotes the congestion and constriction of the bronchial tubes. Eat a light diet with little meat; meat once a week is enough.
No milk products, tomatoes, hot peppers, or kiwi. No smoking should be obvious.
• Don’t take medications that weaken the immune system, such as antibiotics.
• Get enough fresh air by taking long walks. Do yoga or gymnastics every week and get enough rest.
Most people who suffer from breathing difficulties are familiar with inner loneliness (too much detachment from the surrounding world) and/or cannot set boundaries. Consequently, they feel themselves plagued by other people’s duties and problems (too little detachment).
