Yoga is a very ancient science which has helped in treating the body, mind as well as the spirit. Different kinds of yoga postures, breathing techniques and meditation techniques are a part of Yoga and they will help a person in attaining a complete sense of happiness and well-being. These yoga postures have also helped in curing many kinds of medical problems and diseases which have not been cured using medicines. Yoga Asanas along with meditation can help in making the basic life of the person a lot easier.
Arthritis, spondylitis and diabetes are some of the medical conditions which can be treated easily by doing Yoga Exercises on a regular basis. Asthma is another medical condition which has found a cure in yoga. A lot of people suffer from a respiratory problem known as asthma where the bronchi will become narrow and start swelling. The bronchi are the mode of transportation of air inside the lungs as well as outside the lungs. It is possible to treat and cure asthma completely by doing yoga exercises regularly. A lot of breathing techniques in yoga can help in curing asthma and some of these are the kapalbhati and the anuloma viloma. Both these breathing techniques involve a mix of deep breaths as well as shallow breaths in order to regularize the breathing system of the person.
Pranayama as well as many yoga asanas can help in taking care of the problem of asthma to a large extent in most people. The constriction of the bronchial tubes in asthmatics can be controlled to a large extent when yoga postures and pranayama are practiced regularly. When pranayama is practiced by an asthmatic regularly, all the uncontrollable aspects of the human breathing can be brought within the control of the person. The energy which is present in the body will get refreshed when a person decides to practice pranayama on a regular basis. The levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide which are present inside the body will get balanced in the right manner when pranayama is practiced regularly.
But pranayama also needs to be practiced in the right manner in order to attain all the benefits. The process of inhalation and exhalation will have to be performed properly in order to achieve the right balance which will help in dealing with all situations. Pranayama yoga will perform the process of purifying all the internal parts of the body which include the lungs and the linings of the bronchioles. The air will be allowed to flow in and out of the air sacs and bronchioles which are present inside the lungs. Dirga pranayama yoga is a form of slow and deep breathing. Ujjayi pranayama will help in curing asthma which has been caused due to a cold. Any congestion in the form of mucus can be cured by doing kapalbhati.
