Asthma can be triggered by a high pollen concentration in the event of a thunderstorm, particularly in spring and early summer.
People do not need a history of asthma or hay fever to be affected.
Clinical trials of Buteyko Breathing have shown that people with asthma breathe in excess of the normal amount of air for a healthy individual, and this may result in the intake of an excessive amount of airborne triggers including pollen.
By correcting breathing back to the physiological norm of 4-5 litres per minute for an adult (less for children), people intake less allergens and may experience a decrease in asthma symptoms.
Normal recommendations of avoiding triggers where possible like staying indoors and having a plan for the onset of symptoms, should of course be continued.
