Diaphragmatic Breathing Daily
To begin straighten your spine and keep your shoulders back and relaxed. Inhale slowly and deeply
through the nose filling the lower lobes of the lungs. Your abdomen will expand as the diaphragm drops down, then the upper lobes of the lungs fill expanding the chest. Exhale slowly through the nose. Repeat.
Use diaphragmatic breathing to help relax when you feel tense, anxious or to ease pain.
Try this.. Breathe in a count of 4, hold your breathe a count of 7, exhale a count of 8... Ahhhh feels so good!
Coronary heart disease is due to lack of oxygen received by the heart. Dr. Dean Ornish
"Healthy breathing should be the first thing taught to a heart patient." A Dutch Study conducted by a doctor named 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 out of 12 members of the second group had second heart attacks over the next two years." Gay Hendricks, Ph.D Conscious Breathing
