Meditation for Whatever Ails YouBy Emma Suttie, D.Ac, AP

Ask Dr. MaoQ: What sets asthma apart from regular breathing problems and what are some natural treatments for asthma?

A: People who are having an asthma attack have real trouble taking a breath. Many people with stuffy noses from hay fever or colds say, “I can’t breathe,” but they retain the option of breathing through the mouth. Asthmatics, however, know what “I can’t breathe” really means. Instead of their nasal passages, it is the bronchial tubes in their lungs that become swollen and clogged. Breathing can become frighteningly difficult.

Asthma involves two conditions: (1) contraction of the small muscles surrounding the bronchial tubes and (2) swelling of the lining of those tubes. Until recently, treatment usually addressed the first aspect of asthma; but in the last decade, it has become clear that tissue swelling is more fundamental.
