Breathing problems can seriously impair our ability to function and enjoy life. Air is our main source of energy and vitality. When we suffer from asthma, bronchitis, allergies, colds or simply insufficient oxygen uptake, we are prone to a lack of energy, vitality and / or mental clarity.
Every cell in our body depends on an abundant supply of oxygen for a good metabolism and vitality.
Some causes of breathing problems
1. Hereditary weakness can make our lungs or other organs of respiratory equipment weaknesses in our system. So when they are tired, overworked, anxious or stressed, these parts of the body will start to malfunction.
However, this does not mean that we have to suffer. It is in our hands to live a certain way to nourish and protect our body and mind.
Among such weaknesses, we must include the inability of the immune system to effectively protect the body from microbes and viruses. In some cases, the immune system can work overtime to protect the body from "imagined" dangers. Allergies and asthma often result from such immune system overreactions.
2. Environmental factors can also make the condition worse.
Cold and humid weather tends to accentuate breathing problems.
Pollen and other airborne particles can cause allergic reactions.
Working conditions such as working in a dusty room or in a smoke-filled room can also make the problem worse.
Pollution irritates our nasal cavity and lungs.
Cigarette smoking clearly damages our lungs, cutting off our oxygen supply.
3. An overproduction of mucus clogs the respiratory passages, obstructing breathing. Foods that tend to cause excess mucus are all dairy, white flour, white rice, and candy.
4. Lack of adequate fluid uptake causes the mucus to thicken and cling to the lungs and other respiratory passages. This creates a favorable environment for the reproduction of microbes.
5. Blockages in the spine or tension in the muscles of the upper back can also interfere with the flow of nerve impulses and bioenergy to the lungs. This can hinder the proper functioning of the lungs.
6. Emotional blocks are directly related to our breathing. People who experience anxiety, depression, anxiety, nervous tension, or poor self-esteem tend to hold their breath unconsciously. So their breathing is tense, shallow, and sometimes convulsive.
Prolonged emotional blockages can also affect the adrenal glands, so hormonal disorders can also play a role in the problem. Negative emotions also suppress or interfere with the functioning of the immune system.
7. Inadequate breathing training is another reason why people have breathing problems. It is quite possible for us to learn to use our lungs more effectively for more energy, vitality, peace and clarity of mind. This should be learned from an experienced breathing coach.
1. Environmental and habit factors
a. Surround yourself with large green-leaved plants, which produce oxygen and absorb pollution.
b. Get out of town regularly. Go into the sea or mountains and breathe fresh, clean air.
c. Use regular deep breathing to clean and rejuvenate your lungs.
d. Breathing deeply while walking can remove a significant amount of pollution from the lungs.
e. If you smoke, love yourself and quit.
2. Dietary guidelines
a. Avoid all diary products, white sugar, candy, white flour, and white rice. Once the problem is gone, we can start taking small amounts of dairy products while looking at the body's response.
b. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.
c. Drink enough (6 or 8 cups) of warm liquid daily. This can be water, herbal tea or water with lemon. Do not drink chilled or ice cold drinks.
d. When someone has a cold, an onion and garlic soup seasoned with pepper, cinnamon ginger and cloves opens the nasal passages and drains the congestion.
e. In some cases, the use of natural vitamin C tablets can be helpful.
3. Facing emotional factors is essential for curing the cause of the breathing problems.
There are several ways in which we can find relief from these emotional factors and ultimately analyze and transcend them.
a. Objective self-observation can free us from various emotional attachments and fears.
b. Positive thinking, affirmations and positive thought projection can neutralize negative emotions and tendencies.
c. Various body-centered catharsis techniques in addition to reprogramming techniques such as EMDR computer technology articles, TFT and EFT can free us from emotional psychosomatic symptoms.
4. Exercises and techniques
A. Using different exercises and techniques we try to:
1. Remove blockages and strains from the upper back and chest.
2. Develop more freedom and control over the respiratory muscles.
3. Pump blood and healing energies to the chest area.
4. Open the nasal passages if they are blocked.
5. Stimulate the harmonious functioning of the adrenal glands and the immune system.
B. Techniques need the guidance of an experienced coach:
1. For starters, we can just do deep breathing exercises. These exercises will provide relief from tension and may even bring to the surface the cause of our emotional tension so that we can see it more clearly and objectively.
2. Exercises for the upper back and chest can also bring significant relief from emotional tension.
3. Deep relaxation techniques are also very effective in relaxing the entire system, allowing the respiratory muscles to function more freely.
4. In guided deep relaxation sessions, the source of the emotional blocks can be explored by regression.
We can take care of our body and mind and they will take care of us.
