Did you know that certain breathing techniques can profoundly and positively impact your life? Breathing is essential for achieving optimal health.
Did you know that bellows breath (a type of rapid belly breathing) can help to lower your resting heart rate and thus increase your life span with just a few minutes of practice a day for as little as a month? That’s the same type of benefit you would receive from doing regular exercise every day. This is just one type of breathing that has scientifically been proven to support the human nervous system and also to enhance anti-aging, mood-boosting, and disease-fighting properties. Truthfully, breathing is extremely important for achieving optimal health.
When we breathe slower, it affects our moods positively, increases the immune functioning of the body, and turns off the sometimes toxic chemical stew that can be created by a stress-response left over from a fight-or-flight mechanism (induced by the autonomic nervous system) that we developed early on. Some smart doctors even tell their patients to practice deep breathing five to ten times a day.
