Breath of Life: 

Breathing, Relaxation And Stretching For Stress Relief

Breathing

It’s no secret that one of the keys to Longevity is to keep breathing as long as you can. 
Yet, simple breathing – the involuntary act so many of us take for granted – is much more than the mere physiological act of taking in oxygen.

Ancient practitioners of Chi Kung, Tai Chi and other forms of marital arts have long known that disciplined intentional breathing affected physical as well as emotional vitality.  Virtually every major spiritual discipline uses a form of breath awareness as part of its practice.  In most languages, the word for breath is the same as the word for spirit.  In Japan, the word is ki, in Hindu writings, prana, and in China, Qi or chi.  Breath is the life force and the significant carrier of energy in the human system.  Through mindful breathing techniques, individuals have learned to control their heartbeats, blood flow, blood pressure, immune system, mental conditions and even pain.  Qi Gong masters direct the breath to heal specific body tissues and organs.

Carola Speads, a German movement therapist, in her book Breathing: The ABC’s, says that disciplined breathing, “gives us physiological and psychological balance and the balance of yin and yang,” a symbolic expression of masculine and feminine energy.

Recently, there has been an upsurge of interest in the various techniques of breathing and the many ancient practices that utilize breath to develop the exploration and empowerment of the inner self.  Breathing from the chest is too shallow and limits the amount of oxygen that enters the blood stream.  Breath must be drawn in from the belly, expanding the abdomen in smooth and rhythmic movements.

RELAXATION And The Breath Of Life

The word relaxation should bring to mind the definitive work of Herbert Benson, M.D., Associate Professor of Medicine at the Harvard Medical School.  In his book, The Relaxation Response, Benson elaborates on the necessity to learn relaxation techniques in today’s stress-filled existence.  He outlines a simple meditative technique that can be used alongside of any other discipline or spiritual practice.

  • Find a quiet environment – a place free from distraction.
  • Create a comfortable position for yourself.
  • Avoid undue muscle tension.  A sitting position works well.  You can use a chair that supports the head if the idea of sit up and relax doesn’t come naturally to you.
  • Only a few are comfortable with the lotus position of the yogis.  Do not Attempt to lie down, as you may get drowsy or fall asleep.  (Sleep itself isn’t a bad way to relax, but it’s not a form of active, conscious stress reduction – and consciously falling asleep doesn’t count!)
  • Choose a mental device – a sound, word or phrase – repeat it silently or aloud.  Follow your breathing, become aware of your breath.  Relax.  Do this as you fix your gaze at a stationary object – NOT the television.

    Assume a passive attitude.  Don’t worry about how you’re performing, what you’re getting out of the exercise, or what you should be doing instead of the exercise.  This is so important: let go! Just let it happen.  Let the words sink deep within you.  Do this twice a day for at least fifteen minutes.  It has been conclusively proven to help heal the body, and provides several additional benefits that you begin feeling the first or second day that you begin this.

ADDITIONAL METHODS AND SHORTCUTS

Invest just seven or eight minutes per day, especially during normally wasteful minutes – such as when you’re waiting at traffic lights, riding in a vehicle (where someone else is driving, naturally), close your eyes and simply visualize yourself in your favorite place on earth, doing the things you enjoy the most.  Allow yourself to float into that visualization, and you find your energy levels going up, your reactions more positive and affirming;  your ideas more creative, among several other benefits of this.



BREATHE!!!!

Infants know how to breathe, because we’re born knowing how: full, complete respirations, which means letting all the air out of your lungs, and then replacing it with good, deep, full breaths.  By the age of ten or twelve, when we become psycho-socio-sexually aware of ourselves, we become so concerned with how others view and respond to us that we literally and most definitively forget how to breathe properly, drawing shallower breaths than is healthy.

 

The naturopathic doctor and the allopathic doctor differ very little in what they know. They differ greatly wherein allopathic doctors prefer to use synthetic drugs hoping to stimulate healing from the outside, while homeopathic doctors prefer to stimulate healing from the inside, using naturally occurring drugs, herbs, and remedies.



If you’re a fan of crashing the immune systems with drugs that we’re becoming evermore immune to,
such as antibiotics, then go to a medical doctor. If you lean more toward healing naturally, with items that occur in nature, then go to a homeopathic doctor.

In either case, don’t go to either one without first grabbing information from your library or internet or encyclopedia on whatever it is that’s ailing you.  Only a very foolish person allows someone else to have complete knowledge and control over life-and-death issues without a good measure of understanding AND participation in the decision-making process.


You’re visiting the healthiest web site ever created,
striving mightily to be the largest health-oriented web site in the world.
You are presented with higher quality information to help you ask better questions.

Better questions inevitably produce better results

No one argues the truism that asking better questions always stimulates better answers.

 

If your doctor is able to tell you what he or she believes is wrong with you, FIRST look up the subject yourself. Learn about it.  You are certain to receive information and suggestions that are not based on the guesswork of diagnosis. You will have measurable, identifiable biofeedback information on precisely what is wrong with you, enabling and empowering you to ask even better questions, which simply translates into effective natural techniques and remedies for healing. Between your doctor and your own research, you're almost certain to receive significantly different approaches, and you’ll have at least a fair understanding of both provided you take just a few minutes to study whatever is wrong with you, or supposedly wrong with you.

Every known human illness, disease and malady,
every synthetic chemical, and just about every surgery being conducted in the world today,
all have a natural answer, a natural remedy, a natural result.

So,

  • learn first

  • go to your regular doctor

  • Study more on your own. The internet is The Source for great information.

That's worth repeating:
Live longer, live better, live happier,
with better decisions that are based on understanding how those decisions are arrived at

As complicated as the human body is, its operation and maintenance requires no superior education. Nature has built-in protections that are autonomous. Your responsibility is to learn about those features NOT autonomic in function.     Fair enough?     Talk less; do more.
