Asthma sufferers find that meditation helps to decrease triggering and airway resistance, as well as reducing susceptibility to stress factors that might otherwise make an attack feel worse.

  • The Problem

    Asthma is a long-term condition that affects your airways – the tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs.

    Asthma causes symptoms such as coughing, wheezing and breathlessness.

    It tends to run in families; especially in those with a history of allergies or smoking.


  • How it affects you

    If you have asthma you have ‘sensitive’ airways that are inflamed and ready to react when they come into contact with something they don't like.

    When you come into contact with one of your asthma triggers, the muscles around the walls of the airways tighten and narrow; the lining of the airways becomes inflamed and starts to swell; sticky mucus may build up, which can narrow the airways even more.

    These reactions make it hard to breathe and lead to symptoms, such as chest tightness, wheezing, or coughing. It can also lead to an asthma attack.

    Stress and anxiety often play a significant role in triggering asthma attacks as well as increasing the intensity of attacks.

    These feelings also generate the automated hyperactive inflammatory response, which is responsible for the swelling we experience when the issue is acute.


  • How can Beeja help?

    By reducing sensitivity to the stress response, Beeja meditators consistently find that they are less susceptible to asthma attacks. It seems there is both decreased triggering and, with time, an unwinding of the underlying issues governing the condition.

    We also tend to experience decreased airway resistance, which ensures more comfortable breathing during times of stress and in our regular lives.

    In addition, Beeja meditation helps detoxify our cells of environmental pollutants, which can both cause and aggravate this condition.

    It also helps support our immune system, so it can respond more appropriately to indoor allergens and is less hyperactive in its inflammatory response.

    Smoking is another key aggravator of respiratory conditions. Meditation makes it much easier to conquer addiction and often creates a spontaneous movement away from this kind of toxic activity.

    Beeja meditation can be deployed as a tactical tool to offset attacks before they take hold.

    Over time, we are less and less likely to suffer from attacks. 

    This is illustrated beautifully by an extensive study comparing the medical care required for 2,000 meditators versus 600,000 non-meditators...

    Over five years the study revealed that Beeja meditation using personalised mantras reduces the risk of respiratory disorders in those over 40 by 73%.

    For those who suffer from respiratory problems like asthma: we offer short breathing exercises to be done in tandem with the meditation to help alleviate symptoms even more quickly.
