Description
From the Back of the Book:

This book is one of the series on "Integrated Approach of Yoga Therapy for modern ailments" published by Swami Vivekananda Yoga Prakashana. The authors of this book are both scientists who had carried out systematic research and development these integrated yoga therapy modules in tune with both the traditional yoga texts and the modern medical understanding of the ailments. Research by these authors since 1980 has validated the efficacy of these techniques through scientific observations published in Indexed Medical Journals.

VYASA had wide experience in healing asthmatics through Yoga. Over a million asthmatics have been treated round the globe with consistent results. Long term (54 months) follow up data published in British Medical Journal of Asthma showed 80% reduction in need for medication with improved lung function and quality of life. Yoga trains asthmatics to overcome the hyper-reactivity of the nasal and air passages through the regular practice of asana, pranayama, meditation and cleansing technique apart from changes of lifestyle.

This first part of this book gives the understanding what, how and why of asthma based on the latest knowledge in modern medicine. The second part deals with the theoretical background of yoga therapy followed by the description of the practices.

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails
John, USA
I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
Love your collection of books! I have purchased many throughout the years. I love you guys!
Stevie, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
Jigme, Canada
