Description - Yoga Beats Asthma by Stella Weller
A comprehensive and accessible guide to understanding and managing asthma through yoga, encouraging sufferers away from exclusive reliance on drugs in favour of using the ancient wisdom of yoga to control the condition themselves through the powers of breathing and of the mind. The number of asthma sufferers has risen sharply since the mid 1980s, with 10 million sufferers in the US and 3.7 million in the UK. Although many people are able to control their condition with drugs, it is still a serious condition - every six hours somebody dies from asthma in the UK. In this text, qualified nurse and experienced yoga teacher Stella Weller reveals how yoga can help sufferers move away from reliance on powerful drugs for treatment. The powerful breathing techniques and exercises outlined in the book show sufferers how to support their respiratory system and help prevent, control and lessen the severity of an attack. This resource should prove useful for sufferers of all ages, as well as parents of asthmatic children who want to help treat the problem naturally.
