Place warmed Bhringaraj Oil into the ears at night before bed. First put in right ear then massage for a minute or two and then do it to the other side until you hear a swoosh sound, “form fitting ear plugs”. Then go to sleep on the right hand side - this should improve hearing,

Meditation for asthma and lung deficiency helps immensely as it increases focus and encourages middle road emotions. Also meat and dairy is not good for asthmatics – increases adrenalin
