Facts about Lung Cancer:
Cancer of the lung (bronchogenic carcinoma) is responsible for 10% of all deaths in the US and makes up 40% of all cancer deaths. Lung cancer is most common in men and those over 40 yrs of age. The overall 5 year survival rate of patients with lung cancer is only 10-20%. Surgery is usually an option in about 30% of the cases and chemotherapy is commonly used as well. Even when a patient is experiencing early symptoms lung cancer and has surgery in Stage I cancer, the five year survival rate is only 50%, stage II is 20-30%, and Stage III tumors only 5-10%. Chemotherapy for squamous cell cancers and adenocarcinoma will usually only slow down lung cancer symtoms or growth of the cancer for a time.

The pranayam techniques:
Bhastrika - Take a long deep breath into the lungs(chest not tummy) via the nose and then completely breathe out through the nose.Duration upto 5 minutes.
Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day.(Max 60 min/day) Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.
Anulom Vilom - Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril
then -keeping the left nostril closed deep breath-in through right nostril
