Asthma Mudra

After performing the Bronchial Mudra to ease acute attacks, asthma patients will also find it useful to perform the ‘asthma mudra’ as a long term treatment for avoiding the recurrence of acute attacks of asthma.

Technique for asthma mudra:

  • Press together finger nails of the middle fingers and keep others fingers extended.
  • This mudra has to be practiced 4-5 times a day for at least 7-10 minutes.
  • There are certain facts which an asthma patient should keep in mind. They are listed below:

  • During cold weather one should never breathe through their mouth because the bronchial tubes will become inflamed and congested
  • Try not to be in a hurry because every incidence of stress activates the adrenal glands which liberate adrenaline which in turn promotes congestion and constriction of bronchial tubes.
  • Avoid smoking
  • do pranayam on a daily basis
