Your Food, Your Medicine: Asthma (2009)
Asthma is a lung disease characterized by breathlessness, tightness in the chest, and wheezing. In terms of Oriental medicine, all respiratory disorders are rooted in grief, sadness, and disappointment. These all come under the umbrella of sorrow and require the cultivation of an ability to let go.
