View Full Version : Running with asthma?
11-23-2010, 09:08 PM
Does anyone here have asthma but still manage to run? Since I've been Raw (almost 2 yrs.) I've had no asthma problems and haven't had to use either of my inhalers AT ALL. My only problem comes if I try to run. Even when I've tried short stints like in the Couch to 5K program my asthma immediately flares up and I can't breathe. I've wanted to be a runner for the longest time so I feel like I'm really being held back. I know that lots of asthmatics run, however, the advice I seem to be getting over and over again is to use my inhaler 30 min. before running. However, after I've been without it for 2 yrs., I really just don't want to start pumping that stuff back into my body on a regular basis. Is there anything I can do? Is there something I'm missing?

Asthma is caused by emotions as well as it is food. Food eliminated about 75% of the asthma (not MY asthma ~ I don't take ownership of dis-ease) and healing the emotional causes took care of the rest.
Hearing my therapist tell me over and over many years ago "You can breath any time you want to" helped a lot as well.
Find out why you (subconsciously) don't want to breath, eliminate the dis-ease.

I heard something on the radio some years back about breathing techniques that help asthmatics. Paul Sorvino was speaking on the topic. I believe it involved rapid deep breaths as an exercise to strengthen the lungs.
I searched it for you and came up with this so far. He has a book called "How To Become A Former Asthmatic"
I hope you find something helpful in the article. It certainly sounded promising when I heard the radio spot.
