Both hands: Press together the finger-nails of the middle fingers and keep other fingers extended. In case of an acute asthma attack, first do the Bronchial Mudra (Number
4) for 4 to 6 minutes. Then use this Asthma Mudra until the breathing calms down. For long-term treatment, use these two mudras five times every day for 5 minutes.
Unfortunately, I am not one of those fortunate people who once had asthma but got rid of it through a rad-ical cure with medication and never felt anything again. Many members of my family on my father’s side had asthma, so it is a “dear” family heirloom. But despite this, I live without any medication because I follow certain
rules of behavior. My tips are sure to help asthma patients, which is why I’m passing them on here: During cold weather, never breathe through your mouth
because the bronchial tubes will become inflamed and con-gested. Try not to be in a hurry because every incidence of stress acti-vates the adrenal glands. Adrenaline promotes the congestion and constriction of the bronchial tubes. Eat a light diet with little meat; meat once a week is enough.THE M U D R A S 69 No milk products, tomatoes, hot peppers, or kiwi. No smok-ing should be obvious.
• Don’t take medications that weaken the immune system, such
• Get enough fresh air by taking long walks. Do yoga or gym-
nastics every week and get enough rest.
Most people who suffer from breathing difficulties are familiar with inner
loneliness (too much detachment from the surrounding world) and/or can-
not set boundaries. Consequently, they feel themselves plagued by other
people’s duties and problems (too little detachment).
HERBAL REMEDY: Horehound (Marrubium vulgare L.) and black
cumin (Nigella sativa) help against asthma complaints.
Visualize pictures of a wide expanse—the ocean, the sky with clouds,
and mountains (you stand on the peak). Take this expansiveness into
your heart and lung area. While exhaling, let the distances become
greater; while inhaling, let them become smaller again—a proportion
that is right for you. Now do the same with the people or duties that
you find oppressive.
detach myself from everything that constricts me and fully enjoy
my new freedom. I feel safe and secure in the divine light,
which gives me support.
