Breathing Exercise for Asthma Q&A

Q. I have always suffered from asthma. Can you recommend me some breathing exercises for Asthma or anything that might help?

A. First, let me just say I do not have any formal qualifications to give advice on asthma. Therefore these opinions should not be taken as medical advice.

Pink Salt Inhalers

I do, however, have experience working with people who have seen good results using a Pink Salt Inhaler. The Inhaler is said to help the respiratory system over all. Scientific evidence for its benefits is sparse although it has been shown to be safe.

Pink Salt Lamps

You could also try a Pink Salt Lamps which are said to improve the air quality inside a room. When the lamp heats up the pink salt draws moisture from the air and traps pollution inside the salt.

The Lamp then releases clean evaporated water through a process called gyroscopic cycling.

The lamps also have another benefit of decreasing positive ions which have been shown to be important for health.

It should be noted that we have not tried these products ourselves so can not report on the effectiveness from experience. As with anything you should do your own research about these products and take the necessary steps to see if they are appropriate for you.

After you have taken 10 or so breaths next move your attention into the body. Here you are aiming to explore the sensations around the chest and throat or where ever you notice the tightness.
