Yoga and Asthma


CHICAGO - Yoga may help patients suffering from asthma. A new study led by researchers at Cochrane and published in Cochrane Library
 suggests yoga may provide health benefits for patients with asthma.

Studies of over one-thousand adults with mild to moderate asthma showed yoga led to small improvements in their symptoms and overall quality of life.
But, researchers say it's not clear if yoga helps boost lung function or could reduce the need for asthma medications. The side effects of yoga for asthma patients are also uncertain.
