The first book is on Yoga Therapy:
Yogic Life - A Cure For Asthma & Bronchitis
Most of us who suffer from asthma and bronchitis come to accept our condition as something to be borne with fortitude and patience. During an attack we may take a tablet or an injection or use an inhaler and once the attack is over we limp back to normalcy and carry on with the business of living. Another attack, and we reach for the tablets or injections again. Would you like to change this pattern of behavior? Do you want to? Do you believe you can?
The fight against asthma and bronchitis begins with a strong will to overcome you disability and has to be backed by an implicit faith in yourself.
The Yogic life strengthens your will, augments your faith in yourself and opens the air passages. How soon you can breathe with ease and on your own, depends on yourself. Some may achieve it in weeks, others may take months. But what are you waiting for? Begging now!
"The work of The Yoga Institute, Santa Cruz as I have been seeing it for the last several years is excellent. The scientific data collected is impressive. I am convinced of the great value of Yoga for the cure of Asthma and Bronchitis".
