One can survive for days without food and water, but breath is central to life. Therefore, not being able to breathe efficiently can be debilitating. The number of asthmatics has doubled over the years due to a combination of factors such as stress, poor diet and pollution making the respiratory system hypersensitive. The practice of yoga will not only improve your overall health, but will help you deal with asthma.
