Pranayama Can Help Asthma Patients
While doing yoga your ‘nadis’ or energy channels of your body open up. These channels help in circulating energy to each part of your system. This leads to healing of the mind and body which improves your well-being. It can also reduce the chances of getting an asthma attack and help you do physical activities with ease. Yoga poses are easy to learn and can be practiced at any time of the day.
Nadi Shodhana, commonly known as anulom vilom clears up the blocked energy channels in your body and helps it heal. It also relaxes your mind and helps you sleep better. Kapal bhati is a popular pranayama which has many benefits like speeding up the metabolism, improving blood circulation, energising the nervous system, and promoting energy flow throughout the body. Bhastrika pranayama is done along with Kapal Bhati to cleanse the airways of the body. It involves deep breathing with forceful exhaling that builds strength in your lungs and increases your stamina. These can be helpful to safeguard an asthma patient’s health, but consult with your doctor before adding them to your routine.
