Book 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.

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.
