Hi All ,

This is my first hand experience that I would like to share with all of you.
Even i faced asthamatic symptoms for the past 2 yrs.: breathing problem and the problem of sticky mucus in my chest and throat . Actually it is related to wrong digestion and wrong respiration. If food is not properly digested then it gets converted into phlegm and affects the body as a whole.

In general the ayurvedic treatement and yogasanas helped me a lot.
There is however certain discretion in doing the yogasanas that must be followed :

If you are overweight then you should do mosttly forward bending asanas. Also you can do the pranayamas(breathing exercies) that involve more exhalation exercises like : "kapalbhati pranayama" . You can take a hot water bath.

If you are underweight and malnourished then you should do backward bending asanas : (eg: bhujangasana, ushtrasana). And pranayama that involves internal retention of breath : antar kumbhaka/sitali. You can take a cold water bath.

Try to be out of AC and breathe in the fresh natural air outside.

The yoga must be done under expert advice and guidance and improper practice can be harmful, but with proper practice you can use it for your own benefit. Yoga treatement is long time one but gives sure results.
Also eating habits should be such that you do not overload your digestive systems , too much of chocolate, cheese, mayoneise, pastries is not good. Instead fruits should be amply eaten. Also one should not over-exercise as it burns out the tissues.
All in all a "balanced" diet, exercise, behaviour and meditation will help a lot. Remember, the body has a great feedback mechanism and if you listen to it and alter accordingly then it will respond well too.

The frequency of my breathing troubles has reduced by 90% of the original, though it raises its head once in a while. But Im sure that following the natural ways, one day one should be able to get past it completely.
Good Luck!
