Study: Pediatric asthma symptoms and the maternal-infant bond

In a 2004 study published in the Journal of Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health, researchers examined the effect of the maternal-infant bond and the improvement of asthma symptoms among children. The study examined participants who experienced a bonding problem and had children with asthma. When mothers were treated with a therapy that repaired the bonding problem results showed that some children experienced a improvement in asthma symptoms. This evidence shows that in some cases asthma may be related to the absence or impairment of bonding. To view the full article visit //www.asthma-busters.org/mib2.pdf.
