When you think of meditation, you probably think of people sitting on a floor with their hands folded and their legs bent, looking like a Buddhist monk from a bad movie.
While some people will use this position to meditate, this is not what meditation means.
Instead, when you meditate, you are actually using the power of your mind to help influence your body.
This is especially true in the case of asthma. They say that you should believe in â€œmind over matterâ€ and this is true because you can use your mind to help calm yourself when asthma attacks strike.
While we are not saying that you can live without your medication, you can help yourself ease your dependency on medication by learning how to help prevent your asthma from striking in the first place.
By learning how to anticipate when an asthma attack is going to strike, you can use your meditation period to calm your lungs and keep yourself breathing strongly and firmly. This will help you prevent yourself from losing control and launching into an asthma attack.
Learning how to work through the reactions your body is having before they become too strong can help you to ease the amount of asthma attacks you live through daily.
