Asthma is often associated with pollution, and accordingly asthma is a chronic (long-term) condition that affects the airways in the lungs. The airways are tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs. If you have asthma, the airways can become inflamed and narrowed at times. This makes it harder to breathe in and for air to flow out of your airways when you breathe out.
Children often have phases when they can’t breathe. Doctors are called out or kids are sometimes rushed to hospital. It really doesn’t help if windows are open to allow a breeze in and coolness to keep the room fresh, as in the winter there is a phenomenon called thermal inversion that is likely to make asthma worse, or even ignite an attack from the staleness of oxygen input.
Therefore, increasing oxygenation levels is one way to counteract asthma and send it packing. I know, I have done it! As an adult it is frustrating to have to rely on powder sprays to open up the bronchial passages when you feel tight chested and can’t seem to get enough oxygen into your lungs. There is a way to change your ability to overcome this condition.
By training your body to inhale and exhale more efficiently, it will help open the bronchial passages whilst in other ways you will benefit. Did you know children live in a more oxygenated state? The reason is because young children have significantly higher metabolic rates than adults, and therefore have a higher oxygen demand, which in turn results in higher respiratory rates.
In this scenario, I’m talking from personal experience as an adult. And by breathing right which is explained (worth seeing) to learn how to breath and become informed of benefits. The video above is an introduction to bold breathing techniques which will change many people’s lives.

Tight chested (adj) = Shortness of breath. Tightness in the chest can be caused by multiple issues. Reasons include infection, injury, anxiety, cardiovascular conditions, lung conditions, and digestive issues. If you feel like your chest is tightening, you may worry that you're having a heart attack.
