Take a Deep Breath
Certain herbs strengthen both the lungs and the adrenals for deeper breathing.
Though we can use herbs to improve yogic breathing in both yoga asana and pranayama practices, for
moderate to severe breathing problems like asthma, seek professional help from a qualified Ayurvedic
practitioner or other medical professional. Also, if you're currently using steroidal or other
inhalants, do not suddenly stop. They should be gradually phased out with professional guidance.
