My husband was a severe asthmatic. He had been hospitalized several times and nearly died. He was only 25 years old! After the asthma attacks, he would be so weak and debilitated he could barely walk. He was unable to work for months. Our lives revolved around his ability to breathe without wheezing. After hearing Mr. Sorvino on a talk show, I got this book for my husband. After learning the breathing exercises, my husband has not had an asthma attack in three years! Even today, he still uses these exercises. This book totally changed our lives. My thanks to Mr. Sorvino for sharing his story with us.

I bought this book for my sister who has bad asthma. She and her husband read the book and she started doing the exercises. She is now able to breathe easier. She found the book easy to read and the directions for exercises easy to follow.

This may be the most valuable book I have ever purchased on Amazon, or anywhere else for that matter. Who would have thought that Paulie from "Goodfellas" would be helping me with my Asthma? I wanted to get off the inhalers and medications, or at least cut them down. Looking for a natural treatment, I found this book. Mr. Sorvino details his own struggles with Asthma, and that of his son. He then explains the breathing exercises that he was taught many years ago, and that made such a difference in his life. The exercises are easy...15 minutes, morning and evening; five minutes on the floor, ten minutes in a chair. They have really worked for me. I'm breathing easier, and I know my lung capacity has increased. I'm coughing productively with each session, and bringing up a lot of mucus that would otherwise remain in my lungs. I haven't used my rescue inhaler in weeks. These exercises are going to be a part of my life from now on. I wish this book would come back into print. Any asthmatic could benefit from it. Thanks, Mr. Sorvino!

Format: Hardcover
This book may be out of print, assuming from the 90$ price tag (at the time of my review, at any
rate) , and I am glad I have this book in my collection from some years ago. The material has been
be helpful in an overall regimen of holistic care numerous times,
and I would recommend anyone seeking relief from
the root causes of asthmatic conditions to seek non medical care , perhaps in addition to any
medical/emergency level care they may need. Most of us know one or more asthmatic people who
continue to have episodes and even become sicker under medical "care" , and the exercises, philosophy
and message in this book fills a missing link in overall healing for the condition of asthma.

I would close by saying - please re-issue this book, perhaps with title updates- the material
is very good, and socially/culturally the timing is perhaps better now in 2010 to receive these
excellent suggestions than it was when the book originally came out. Many thanks to the author
for writing it!

Over the years I have sent this book to many family and friends who are struggling with asthma. The exercises Sorvino teaches are not substitutes for medication, but if you do them religiously, you will see an improvement in your asthma. The good news is, sometimes for some people, medication will become a rare necessity.
