 Naturopathic Medicine: Asthma Part 2 
 

  • Muscular relaxation therapy alone appears to have no effect. Certain relaxation techniques, such as autogenic training, transcendental meditation, systematic desensitization, and biofeedback-assisted relaxation can produce improvement.

    Creative visualization concepts which may help you understand the roots of your asthma are a form of self-education. You can also seek guidance from a therapist. The idea is to understand what the bronchi look like, and recognize that an attack can be made worse by seeing bronchi tighten. With this image, you discover you have some control over whether the symptoms get worse or better. Imagine that your chest is a treasure chest, with your heart being the prize. Imagine yourself in a leaf, being the breathing process of the leaf. Imagine that you are a sleek, glossy train, and your voice is a cheerful steam whistle. Hold the following affirmations in your mind, and repeat them to yourself out loud looking in the mirror:

    • It is safe for me to take charge of my own life.
    • I choose to be free.
