In brief: Yes

Stress has major effects on asthma, causing some changes in immune system and airway constriction as a physiologic response.
So less stress, less asthma attack and better recovery. Important to mention: stress aggravates asthma and asthma aggravtes the stress and anxiety.

In brief: Yes

Asthma is a chronic condition.
Stress affects all chronic conditions adversely. Addressing stress, and especially one's response to stress, must be an integral part of treatment of any person with chronic disease. Remember: our emotions and our physical body are tightly connected and one affects the other. All treatment must be holistic, addressing all issues in the person. www.bookonhealing.com.
