BOULDER, Colo., Sept. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With a seasonal change to a colder weather not far off, asthmatics can normally expect a worsening of their breathing difficulties. "Breathe to Heal," a new book available September 15, offers comprehensive instructions on how the problem can be prevented by teaching people how to control their own breathing.
An illustrated guide for adults and children, "Breathe to Heal" was authored by Sasha Yakovleva along with physicians K.P. Buteyko and A. E. Novozhilov. Yakovleva, who has a master's degree in journalism and is an expert in Russian healing arts, explains that the book is based in part on experiments scientists conducted on breathing in a secret laboratory in Siberia during the Cold War. Originally, she says, the research was meant to aid the Russian space program but it has been adapted to make it applicable to ordinary people.
"People with asthma who are having difficulty breathe too much," Yakovleva explains, "and that worsens their condition. When people have an asthma attack, their instinct is to take more breaths in quick succession, which is the opposite of what they should do. Breathing less helps people to become healthier and live longer."
Invite this entertaining and informative guest to answer:
- What is the human body's most underappreciated organ?
- Why does the average person consume 5-10 times more air than they should?
- What simple breathing exercises stop stuffy or runny noses or coughing?
- How can breathing patterns be modified to tame asthma and other breathing difficulties?
