Could you tell me what are some breathing methods that ease asthma symptoms without an inhaler?

In brief: Breathing techniques

#1 is avoiding triggers.
So if exercise or certain allergens make work, need to monitor or treat before asthma symptoms. Breathing in through nose and out through mouth is best because the nose will filter the air and humidify it. Something called purse-lip breathing can be helpful and is frequently used in COPD but also very good for asthma.
