Take a deep breath because there’s something you need to know. Chances are you’ve been breathing wrong. And it could be harming your health.
But researchers say a simple breathing technique can turn things around.
Ongoing research has shown that proper deep breathing can be an intelligent way to respond to
- chronic fatigue,
- high blood pressure,
- and other ailments – no health club membership required.
Each one of us takes around an astounding 20 000 breaths a day. Yet the influence of breathing on human health still goes largely unnoticed.
Few recognize that shallow breathing is linked to stress, sub-par mental performance, fatigue and increased risk of heart disease. Or that breathing correctly will allow you to not only release tension but also improve your physical and mental well being.
The critical importance of deep breathing
Deep breathing raises levels of oxygen in our blood and presents a wide range of benefits for our health.
Internationally acclaimed alternative health icon Dr. Andrew Weil said it best when he said “If I had to limit my advice on healthier living to just one tip, it would be simply to learn how to breathe correctly.”
Take a look and discover how deep breathing can transform your health:
- Lowers blood pressure
- Relieves emotional issues, including stress and tension
- Improves the quality of sleep
- Raises our energy levels
- Helps break down salt
- Improves circulation
- Helps to promote weight loss
- Improves athletic performance
Pay attention to the way you breathe – it may be one of the most important things you can do for your health. A study led by Arthur Craig, PhD at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center even suggests that a controlled breathing at a slowed rate can significantly reduce feelings of pain.
