Not good too think!: You breathe as necessary. With the exception of swimming, no synchronization is necessary!

How must I teach my teen self-control?

Specializes in Pediatrics
Example: The best tool we have for teaching is modeling the behavior. If you have modeled it then your teen will see that. If you have modeled poor self control then he/she will model that as well. Understanding the teens point of view and offering other ways to react to situations. You may find that a counselor who does cognitive behavior therapy or dilaectical behavior therapy will also be very valuable.

Duh!!!: You don't need to know because it will not help you care for yourself. Only if you are writing a research paper. For chronic pain begin a self-care with a wellness program of vits, magnesium glycinate, sleep hygiene, exercise, self massage, chiropractor, yoga, heat, epsom tub soaking, stretching all are needed. In my practice I use acupuncture and myofascial tissue release.

Depends: It may but asthma can reoccur even after being symptom free for along periods of time. Even though you may not need you medicines at present, i would keep your rescue meds available for any unexpected emergency.
