International Yoga Day 2018: Cure your Asthma with Yoga

Asthma is a common long-term inflammatory disease of the airways of the lungs. It is characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, and bronchospasm. Symptoms include episodes of wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. These episodes may occur a few times a day or a few times per week. Depending on the person, they may become worse at night or with exercise.

The only sustainable cure for asthma lies in yoga. Inhalers can save your life when you get an asthma attack but for a long-term cure, you have to practice these yoga poses.
