Asthma. Narrow Airways and more mucus. This causes more severe problems like wheezing, coughing and even shortness of breath. It can make life miserable if left untreated for a prolonged amount of time. It is not an exaggeration to say it even creates a life-threatening attack. Asthma can be controlled if the treatment is adjusted over the course depending on your symptoms.

  • Respiratory infections, such as the common cold
  • Physical activity (exercise-induced asthma)
  • Cold air
  • Air pollutants and irritants, such as smoke

If you frequently use your asthma inhaler or if you are seeing signs of increased symptoms, it’s highly recommended that you consult a doctor. Track your signs, monitor your symptoms and follow the doctor’s instructions whether it’s meditation or any other control measures.
