10 Breathing Skills People With Asthma Should Learn

Posted by Lisa Bowen on Friday, November 29, 2013 Under: Asthma and Allergies
It makes sense to learn as much as you can about managing any condition you have. We think for people with asthma,this should include common-sense wisdom and self-help skills such as:

  1. How to protect your breathing ability and comfort when a cold is coming on.
  2. How to breathe when your chest is feeling tight and you don’t have your rescue inhaler on-hand.
  3. What sleeping position helps you breathe easiest.
  4. How to assess ahead of time whether your breathing is strong enough to exercise right now.
  5. How to cool down your breathing after exercise just like you cool down your muscles.
  6. How to figure out what you should and shouldn’t eat, based on how those foods affect your breathing.
  7. How to conserve your energy so you can get through your daily activities when you’re feeling symptoms.
  8. What type of breathing increases symptoms and what type of breathing calms them.
  9. Principles for unblocking your nose naturally when it’s stuffed and you can’t breathe through it.
  10. How to work with feelings of anxiousness that come up when you feel breathless.

Breathing Retraining Center LLC’s educational products, courses and coaching are designed to improve breathing skills for people whose issues may be related to habits that have the potential to be improved, as a self-care/wellness activity. Breathing difficulty may be a warning sign of a life-threatening heart or lung condition, infection or other illness. Always check with your doctor about your own situation.

The Buteyko Breathing Technique and other breathing-retraining strategies we teach are an alternative approach and are not the practice of medicine, psychology or a form of psychotherapy, nor are they a substitute for seeking medical or psychological advice from an appropriate professional health-care provider. We want to make the important distinction between using the Buteyko Breathing Technique and other breathing-retraining strategies for health and well-being and the practice of medicine, psychology or any other licensed health-care profession.
