About 200 Russian and Soviet doctors applied this simple breathing exercise on thousands of people with asthma. They found that up to 90% of asthmatics are able to reduce their symptoms, so that they don’t need to use bronchidilators, for example, ventolin or some others, in order to stop asthma attacks. CO2 dilates bronchi and bronchioles, and that is the factor that provides improved oxygen transport. So, therefore, by breathing less, asthmatics are able to improve oxygenation of their body cells, and this is the foundation of this exercise. Furthermore, Russian doctors found that if these asthmatics manage to increase their body oxygen levels up to the medical norm, and, in order to achieve that they need to slow down their breathing pattern back to the medical norm. They will be able to get rid of their inflammation, irritation, allergies, and they are not going to have any symptoms for asthma.

  1. If you need to take a deep breath this means you are doing it too hard. Reduce your breath by 10-15% only while relaxing the body. This should work to stop asthma then, but no deep breaths that also means tension in muscles.

  2. The most bronco dilatory agent in the home is caffeine. If you are suffering an asthma attack and you have run out of salbutamol, get a lot of caffeine in the body. I have had four double espressos in one cup in the past, which worked very well. If you only have tea, put 4 tea bags in a cup, add hot water and drink it all as soon as you can. If you only get a little relief, drink more. It may not taste nice, but if you get enough caffeine in the body your breathing will improve greatly until you can get some salbutamol. Really you need to get several hundred mg of caffeine in the body, which 4 double espressos will provide and enough tea will provide it too. One tea bag wont help. Four tea bags will. Get enough in the body or there will be no effect. Caffeine works differently to salbutamol. Salbutamol and other similar approved anti-asthma drugs act on beta2 receptors and this relaxes smooth muscle in the bronchi, which gives immediate relief in an asthma attack. Asthma is fundamentally an inflammatory condition and all manner of allergens such as pollen, house dust, can cause inflammation in the bronchi which restricts them, which causes the familiar horrible symptoms of asthma. Caffeine doesn’t work in quite the same way as salbutamol when it comes to helping asthma. Caffeine, like other xanthines, acts as a phosphodiesterase inhibitor. As a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, caffeine raises intracellular cAMP, activates protein kinase A, inhibits TNF-alpha and leukotriene synthesis, and reduces inflammation. THIS is why it works in asthma, by reducing inflammation. But reducing inflammation doesn’t happen in seconds, it takes time. Unlike the effects of salbutamol, which are immediate, caffeine can take 30 – 45 minutes to reduce inflammation, but you will see your breathing getting easier after 5 or 10 minutes, so just stay calm and you’ll soon be feeling much better. As I said, 4 or even 3 double espressos will work, as will 4 tea bags. The latter will not taste good, but who cares when you’re struggling to breath. The absolute key point is to get enough caffeine in the body, then just stay calm and feel your breathing get easier and easier. Once it’s easier it will last for a couple of hours, so more than enough time to get hold of some salbutamol. Let me just explain finally why you need to get enough caffeine in the body for this to work. Caffeine works by acting on specific enzymes and for these to work optimally (fast enough) you need to get caffeine levels high enough. In enzymology there is a constant called the Michaelis-Menten (Km) constant, which is essentially the concentration of the enzyme acting substrate e.g. caffeine when enzyme speed is 50% maximal speed. Some enzymes have low Km vales, which means they can work rapidly at low concentrations of the substrate. This is not the case for the caffeine, where relatively high levels are needed to get an anti-inflammatory effect, which is what you’re looking for.
