Breathing is Essential for Life

Breathing is very important for health and wellness because it is essential for life.  The body starts to die in minutes without oxygen.  But, in less extreme and less noticeable ways, the tissue becomes unhealthy and stressed when there is reduced oxygen.  Reduced oxygen or blood flow to an organ eventually leads to dysfunction or disease.  On the positive side, if we supply plenty of oxygen to tissue, we can reverse consequences of stress and decay.

Think of it this way:  if I have reduced breath volume (shallow breathing) because of poor posture, shoulder tension, or stress; then my body will slowly decline – I might even expect this process and call it “aging” or “normal” degeneration.  But, if I increase my breath by even 10-20%, the health benefits will be profound.

How can I increase breath?  Make improvements in these three key areas:  practice good posture habits*, learn to manage stress, and practice breathing!

In “Introduction to Four Essentials for Life,” I focus mainly on breathing and give practical  training on how to engage in conscious breathing to enhance health.  Sure, you could figure this out on your own, but why not learn from someone who has been doing this for nearly 20 years.  Listen now to “Introduction to Four Essentials for Life” to minimize your learning curve and maximize your wellness.
