Health Benefits of Doing Breathing Exercises


Unknown to many, there are numerous ways to take control of our health. These methods are usually found in the ancient teachings of sage and other spiritual practitioners of the past. Fortunately, many of these wisdoms still survive up to these days. However, these are not being promoted, let alone valued, in the mainstream healthcare system. Instead, mainstream or conventional healthcare system is favoring the kind of treatments that do not really provide true healing to a person on the holistic basis.  


One example of these totally free methods is the breathing method. According to many experts practicing this technique, breathing method can be used for so many health issues and provide great benefits to our body on a daily basis. For just a couple of minutes per day, doing these exercises will make your body capable of managing stresses and discomforts while also helping you save money from buying pharmaceutical drugs, that are sometimes causes harmful side effects, and paying for expensive treatment. Always remember that illness is also “business opportunity” to some (or most?) allopathic and conventional doctors as they are being influenced to commit unethical practices by most pharmaceutical agents.

To quote the very popular breathing technique teacher of today, Wim Hof:

“By practicing the breathing exercises, you are releasing more energy, influencing your nervous system and changing various physiological responses. You are inducing voluntarily a short stress response which ultimately will lead to more resilience towards everyday stress, mentally and physiology and feeling more in control.”

Reducing stress through breathing technique

According to Debbie Lynn Toomey, Registered Nurse and Injury Prevention Coordinator at Tufts Medical Center:

“When we are stressed, our breathing gets impacted. And it becomes faster and shallower; activating our sympathetic nervous system which is our fight and flight response. Fortunately, we can consciously change our response from stress to relaxation by just changing the way we breathe.”

This is why if you want to be relieved from stress or manage your well-being in general, controlled breathing techniques are very important as it keeps the body and mind in coordination by regulating blood flow, therefore calming the whole nervous system. This is why doing meditation, with mindful breathing of course, helps a lot in keeping our organs balanced and our immune system function well. Things like lack of sleep or too much physical and mental work for example, are some of the main contributors of stress to our body and by doing daily breath-works, according to experts, will help a lot. Lastly, proper breathing exercises also help our cognitive response as it provides so much benefit to our brain.
