I am sufferer of asthma for the past 8 years. I read recently that many breathing exersices are existing that help people such as me to find relief. What breathing exersices can increase the capacity of the lungs so I find cure for asthma?

There are several exercises that help maintain and increase the lung capacity of asthma patients, making it easier to keep the lungs healthy and provide the body with the oxygen it needs. • Diaphragmatic Breathing: This form of exercise engages the diaphragm and is best done when the patient is feeling rested. • Pursed-Lips Breathing: It is able to slow down the breathing of patients and reduce the work of breathing by ensuring the airways stay open for a longer period.
