ABSTRACT
The article describes the case of a patient who has struggled with asthma his whole life. The patient visited acupuncturist Jill Blakeway, who examined the psychological aspects of the patient's asthma. Blakeway tried to see the presence of the illness-as-identity phenomenon on her patient. Upon finding the psychological component of his asthma, Blakeway made her patient realize the link between his personal and pulmonary lives. Such move made acupuncture and herbs relieve the patient's asthmatic symptoms.
