Australian researchers recently tested two types of breathing exercises in adults with mild asthma who were using a regular preventer (steroid) medication. Both exercises reduced preventer use by up to half and cut the need for reliever inhaler by up to 86%. The exercises were done twice daily and when asthma symptoms occurred.
The techniques can be learnt online at www.asthmacrc.org.au. Always talk to your GP before making any change to your treatment.
