Take a bucket of warm water and a bucket of cold water. Put your feet in the lukewarm water, drink a glass of warm water, cover yourself in a thick bed sheet. Soak a napkin or hanky in cold water and put on your head. Maharshi says that the heat from your feet will go to the lungs and ease breathing within 15-20 minutes.
