What’s This Research About?
Research shows anywhere from 6-30% of asthma sufferers use breathing methods to alleviate their asthma symptoms in the UK.
The authors reviewed six studies in which BBT was used for asthma. They noted that there is a paucity of definitive research on the efficacy of these breathing exercises, especially BBT. Therefore the authors addressed this by examining the efficacy and mechanism of BBT in previous studies. Only six studies met the inclusion criteria due to the fact that many studies on BBT lack sound methodology, controlled trials or sound statistical analysis.
