It’s as-th-MA, not as-th-PA.

It’s “as-the-ma,” not “as-the-pa.”

Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) associated asthma with a mother trauma …

“Asthma is a nondesire to complete oneself, the nondesire to breathe. The mother didn’t want the child – the brain signals this to the ovum. Milk reinforces asthma. It’s good to get the child in a junior acting class. Break the pattern by acting.”

According to…

“Find Hay Fever May Be Induced by Unhappiness,” Science News Letter, Sept. 25, 1948, “Allergies such as asthma may represent attempts to gain sympathy or they express hostility and mask a feeling of guilt or anxiety. Sometimes they can be cured by getting rid of hostility. This is the conclusion of Drs. Hyman Miller and Dorothy W. Baruch, both of Beverly Hills, Calif., who made a special study of 22 asthma patients [21 showed improvement]. One 18-year-old girl who suffered from hay fever said, ‘My whole life is stopped up like my nose.’ ‘If you don’t get my mother back, I’ll cough,’ cried a five-year-old asthma patient when he saw her driving away in a car. ‘I’ll get asthma. Then she’ll have to come back.'”

Marcel Proust actually wrote a letter to his mother, admitting, “For I would prefer to have these [asthma] attacks and please you, rather than displease you and not have them.”

In the words of…

Alice Miller, The Body Never Lies: The Lingering Effects of Cruel Parenting, 2005, “He [Proust] breathed in too much air (love) and was not allowed to exhale the superfluous air (control) – that is, to rebel against his mother’s engulfing claims. True, his magnificent, seven-volume novel enabled him to express himself and to bestow a gift of unusual generosity on his readers. But for years he suffered physical torment because he could not afford to face up totally and consciously to the suffering inflicted on him by his overpowering, dominant, and demanding mother. Right to the very end, his main concern was to spare the feelings of his internalized mother, and he also believed that he must protect himself from the truth. His body was unable to accept this uneasy compromise. It knew the truth, probably from birth.”

Asthma is often associated with a demanding yet overprotective mother.

In the words of …

Lucie Jessner, M.D., John Lamont, M.D., Robert Long, M.D., Nancy Rollins, M.D., Babette Whipple, M.D., & Norman Prentice, M.A., “Emotional Impact of Nearness and Separation for the Asthmatic Child and His Mother,” The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child, Vol. 10, 1955, “What appears to be a paradox – namely that the child threatened with alienation from mother may react with an asthma attack, yet be free from asthma when separated from her – points to the need for scrutiny of the meaning of separation.”

Max Hamilton , M.D., F.R.C.P.E., Psychosomatics, 1955, “The asthmatic personality is produced by a clash between the child and the personality of the parent. The latter invariably tries to dominate the child, but with a very well-marked over-anxious and protective attitude also. During the ‘period of socialization,’ the child holds back his aggressiveness and also becomes afraid of it; thus he becomes insecure. His frustration produces an emotional reaction, which his environment forces him to control. The inhibition is reflected in abnormal reactions of his autonomic nervous system.”

Dave Elman, Findings in Hypnosis, 1964, “Under hypnoanalysis, he told how when he was a baby all he had to do was cry and his mother would come running. With the arrival of a baby sister, attention was divided; now mother didn’t respond to his crying as fast as she used to. One day he cried so long and hard that his breathing made a ‘funny sound.’ The sound didn’t disturb him at all, he said, but when his mother heard it, she came running to him, frightened. ‘Rales’ she called it, and when she told her husband, the doctor, he too became alarmed. Now the child could get attention any time he wanted it simply by crying and making those funny sounds when he breathed.”

Water fantasies and dreams are associated with asthma.

In the words of …

Lucie Jessner, M.D., John Lamont, M.D., Robert Long, M.D., Nancy Rollins, M.D., Babette Whipple, M.D., & Norman Prentice, M.A., “Emotional Impact of Nearness and Separation for the Asthmatic Child and His Mother,” The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child, Vol. 10, 1955, “Felix Deutsch (1947, 1955) has pointed out the importance of water fantasies in patients with respiratory illness, and their significance as symbolic of purification and rebirth, and return to the mother. Mickey, a five-year-old boy, made a picture and explained, ‘Someone is under water with a tube that he uses for breathing. There’s no one around to talk to him. He just lies there under the water.”

Is it just a “coincidence” that …

(1) the Bladder Meridian (3:00-5:00 pm) is a SHUNT for the Lung Meridian (3:00-5:00 am), or that

(2) the lungs of mammals were evolved out of the swim bladders of lungfish, gar, and bichir, or that

(3) the urinary and respiratory systems develop simultaneously in the human fetus, or that

(4) the amount of fluid in the fetal lung is a major determinant of lung growth (too little fluid causing lung hypoplasia (underdevelopment of an organ due to a deficiency of cells).

    Maternal diabetes is associated with an increase of respiratory distress syndrome, a result of lung immaturity (hypoplasia).

    The Spleen-Pancreas (Pan-Kriyas) Meridian (9:00-11:00 am) is a 90-degree SHUNT for the Lung Meridian (3:00-5:00 am).

    Swami Nitty-Gritty advised, “The rotation cleansing breath is for bronchitis and asthma. Tap the chest while doing the alternate therapeutic breathing.”

    Inhale in the right nostril to the count of 7, hold the breath in for the count of 7, exhale out the left nostril to the count of 7, hold the breath out to the count of 7, inhale in the left nostril to the count of 7, hold the breath in to the count of 7, exhale out the right nostril to the count of 7, and so on.
