No-one knows more about the stressful feelings of shortness of breath and the 'bad breathing days' than people with asthma, allergies and respiratory conditions. Maybe more than anybody they need ways to stop their perceived lack of being able to get enough air in. There are practical and easy ways to create change. Often these conditions are caused by the nervous system wrongly coming to the conclusion that it is under attack and it is possible for most people to be free of most respiratory problems.
Everyone needs an easy way of calming the reaction where it's inappropriate, so that whatever previously triggered the breathlessness no longer does. Neuroscience is now showing that fear and memory are intricately related to the breath. By changing our breathing patterns we can change the memory of what happens and the fear of being short of breath. It's empowering and it gives back control with the freedom that comes with that. If you're ready to remove the stress of restricted breathing we're ready to show you how in our Help for Asthma Workshop. Read about a recent medical trial on breathing retraining for ashtma in the Lancet.
