Your optimal, natural state consists of steady energy throughout theday, freedom from chronic pain, a positive mood and outlook, freedom tobreathe deeply and easily, awakening clear-headed and refreshed, a clearmind, good memory and strong vocal expression. All of these aredependent upon the way we breathe, not just random chance.
"Breathing is the key that unlocks the whole catalog of advancedbiological function and development. Is it any wonder that it is socentral to every aspect of health? Breathing is the first place, not thelast, one should look when fatigue, disease, or other evidence ofdisordered energy presents itself." ~ Sheldon Saul Hendler, MD, PhD., Oxygen Breakthrough
The quality of your respiration is the single most important factor forgraceful aging, health, and longevity. Yet this is the last place mostof us look for answers when faced with health challenges. Only a minutefraction of medical doctors are aware that anything can be done - nevermind what - to improve breathing. Is it any wonder we are facing anational health crisis?
"Cancer is a condition within the body where the oxidation has become sodepleted that the body cells have degenerated beyond physiologicalcontrol. Similarly, the true cause of allergy is lowered oxidationprocess within the body, causing the affected individual to be sensitiveto foreign substances entering the body. Only when the oxidationmechanism is restored to its original high state of efficiency can thesensitivity be eliminated."~ Dr. Wendell Hendricks, Hendricks Research Foundation
According to the famous 30-year Framingham Heart Study, Lung volume(FEV1) is the primary marker for how long you will live. This is due tothe fact that heart attacks, cancer, strokes, pneumonia, asthma, speechproblems, and almost every disease known to mankind is affected by howwell you breathe. However breathing cannot be patented, so funds forresearch and education are scarce.
"The relationship between breathing and blood pressure has been knownand understood for a long time. It boils down to this: Elevated bloodpressure accompanies those bodily states where rapid shallow breathingprevails. By altering breathing to a slow diaphragmatic mode, bloodpressure decreases." ~ Robert Fried, PhD, The Breath Connection
The Framingham study further showed that the average person reaches peakrespiratory function and lung capacity in their mid-20's. Then theybegin to lose respiratory capacity - between 9% and 27% for every decadeof life! In other words, unless you take action to maintain or improveyour breathing capacity, it will decline, and with it your generalhealth, your appearance, your life-expectancy, and your emotional andspiritual well-being.
"Jack Shield, MD, a Lymphologist from Santa Barbara, CA, studied theeffects of breathing on the lymphatic system. Using cameras inside thebody, he found that deep diaphragmatic breathing stimulated thecleansing of the lymph system by creating a vacuum effect, which suckedthe lymph through the bloodstream. This increased the rate of toxicelimination by as much as 15 times the normal pace." ~ Excerpt from "Lymph, Lymph Glands, and Homeostasis" 25 No. 4, Dec 92,Pg.147-153
Of course, breathing also affects how gracefully our skin ages, asabundant oxygen and efficient waste-removal are critical for healthyskin cells. Deep breathing improves digestion as well as other internalorgan function, as the movement of the diaphragm "massages" allabdominal organs. Not sure if you even want to live to a ripe old age?
