Lung Health Day

October 26, 2005 is Lung Health Day--a major public awareness campaign sponsored by the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC). Its purpose is to promote the importance of lung health and build awareness about diseases and conditions that adversely affect healthy lungs.

One such lung disease, asthma, afflicts approximately 15 million Americans. While there is no cure for asthma, there are many different treatments to help control symptoms. For those interested in guided imagery, Belleruth Naparstek has created a CD entitled Relieve Asthma which uses visualization to promote deeper, calmer breathing.

The imagery also helps the listener become less reactive to the environment, sense airways opening, swollen tissue subsiding, histamine response dissolving, and muscle bands relaxing.

The CD makes a great gift for asthmatics during National Respiratory Care Week (October 23-29, 2005) and sells for $17.98 at
