Breathing and Medicine
"Improper breathing is a common cause of ill health. If I had to limit my advice on healthier living to just one tip, it would be simply to learn how to breathe correctly. There's no single more powerful - or more simple - daily practice to further your health and well-being than breathwork." ~ Andrew Weil, M.D.
Fear is excitement without the breath. ~Fritz Perl, M.D.
"One study on the treatment of asthma patients conducted by researchers John Goyeche, Dr. Ago, and Dr. Ikemi, suggests that any effective treatment should address suppressed emotions - such as anxiety and self-image - as well as the physical dimension. To achieve this, they encourage correction of poor posture, and helping the person relax the irrelevant respiratory muscles while restoring full diaphragmatic breathing. They also recommended finding ways for getting rid of excess mucus. The good news is that a well-rounded breath practice will do all these things." ~ Donna Farhi(The Breathing Book, Pg. 207)
"The relationship between breathing and blood pressure has been known and understood for a long time. It boils down to this: Elevated blood pressure accompanies those bodily states where rapid shallow breathing prevails. By altering breathing to a slow diaphragmatic mode, blood pressure decreases."
"The first discovery was made by Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg, Director of the Max Planck Institute for Cell Physiology in Berlin. He confirmed that the key precondition for the development of cancer is a lack of oxygen at the cellular level." ~Nathaniel Altman(Oxygen Healing Therapies, Pg. 66.)
"Lack of oxygen clearly plays a major role in causing cells to become cancerous." ~Dr. Harry Goldblatt,(Journal of Experimental Medicine )
"Cancer has only one prime cause. It is the replacement of normal oxygen respiration of the body's cells by an anaerobic (ie., oxygen-deficient) cell respiration."~Dr. Otto Warburg
"Cancer is a condition within the body where the oxidation has become so depleted that the body cells have degenerated beyond physiological control. Similarly, the true cause of allergy is lowered the oxidation process within the body, causing the affected individual to be sensitive to foreign substances entering the body. Only when the oxidation mechanism is restored to its original high state of efficiency can the sensitivity be eliminated."
"Many healings of other physical troubles have occurred in my clients after they started to integrate breathing practices into their lives. There is a simple but encompassing reason that may explain this. The human body is designed to discharge 70% of its toxins through breathing. Only a small percentage of toxins are discharged through sweat, defecation and urination. If your breathing is not operating at peak efficiency, you are not ridding yourself of toxins properly."
"One of the most overlooked benefits of extra oxygen in the tissues is their ability to detoxify more efficiently". ~ Dr. Kurt W. Donsbach, D.C., N.D., (Educator, Scientist, Lecturer, Consultant; and author of Super Health. "Oxygen-Oxygen-Oxygen", and over 50 publications on the subject of heath and nutrition, Founder and Executive Director of Medicine at Hospital Santa Monica, Rosarita Beach, Baja California, the largest holistic hospital in the world; also serves as Medical Director of Institute Santa Monica, Kamien Pomorski, Poland, the sister establishment of Hospital Santa Monica)
"Illness is the result of improper removal of toxins from the body. Oxygen is the vital factor which assists the body in removing toxins." ~ Ed McCabe, (Oxygen Therapies, A New Way of Approaching Disease).
"Coronary heart disease is due to a lack of oxygen received by the heart."
"...healthy breathing should be the first thing taught to a heart patient. A Dutch Study conducted by a Dr. Dixhoorn, compared two groups of heart attack patients. The first group was taught simple diaphragmatic breathing, while the second group was given no training in breathing. The breathing group had no further heart attacks, while 7 of the 12 members of the second group had second heart attacks over the next 2 years."~ Gay Hendricks, Ph.D. Conscious Breathing, Pg. 16.
"A lack of oxygen (hypoxia) is the prime cause of 1.5 million heart attacks each year."~ Dr. Richard Lippman, Renowned researcher
"Jack Shield, MD, a Lymphologist from Santa Barbara, CA, conducted a study on the effects of breathing on the lymphatic system. Using cameras inside the body, he found that deep diaphragmatic breathing stimulated the cleansing of the lymph system by creating a vacuum effect which sucked the lymph through the bloodstream. This increased the rate of toxic elimination by as much as 15 times the normal pace."~ "Lymph, Lymph Glands, and Homeostasis"25 No. 4, Dec 92, Pg.147-153
"All chronic pain, suffering, and diseases are caused by a lack of oxygen at the cell level."
"Breathing is the key that unlocks the whole catalog of advanced biological function and development. Is it any wonder that it is so central to every aspect of health? Breathing is the first place, not the last, one should look when fatigue, disease, or other evidence of disordered energy presents itself. Breathing is truly the body's most basic communication system." ~ Sheldon Saul Hendler, MD, PhD.(Oxygen Breakthrough, Pg 96)
"Oxidation is the source of life. Its lack causes impaired health or disease, its cessation, death." ~ Dr. F.M. Eugene Blass, PH.D.,(Oxygen Therapy: Its Foundation, Aim, Results)
"Oxygen plays a pivotal role in the functioning of the immune system."Parris M. Kidd, Ph.D. author, Antioxidant Adaption
"In all serious disease states, we find a concomitant low oxygen state... Low oxygen in the body tissues is a sure indicator for disease... Hypoxia, or lack of oxygen in the tissues, is the fundamental cause for all degenerative disease. Oxygen is the source of life to all cells." ~ Dr. Stephen Levine (Renowned Molecular Biologist, Geneticist and Author, Oxygen Deficiency: A Concomitant to All Degenerative Illness)
"Starved of oxygen, the body will become ill, and if this persists it will die, I doubt if there is an argument about that." ~ Dr. John Muntz, Nutritional Scientist
"Insufficient oxygen means insufficient biological energy that can result in anything from mild fatigue to life-threatening disease. The link between insufficient oxygen and disease has now been firmly established."~ W. Spencer Way, (Journal of the American Association of Physicians)
"Cells undergoing partial oxygen starvation send out tiny panic signals which are collectively felt in the body as a continuous vague sensation of uneasiness, dread or disaster. This low level generalized warning tends to get tuned out as mere "background noise" by the individual experiencing it. Or, it is attributed to other sources of uneasiness... People rarely suspect that the constant vague feelings of helplessness, fatigue... uneasiness are symptoms of cellular oxygen deprivation."Excerpted from Townsend Letter for Doctors
