Breathing as a targeted healing method has been far too little attention. Considering that there are many yoga sources that say that certain breathing techniques can cure 99 percent of all illnesses, it’s worth digging into it. After all, I have seen with my own eyes, based on results from blood tests, that the measured values have shown a significant decrease in diabetes to normal after only 10 days of exercise.
Other advantages include: The lung function is improved. The body is supplied with more oxygen. The blood is purified. The heart is strengthened. The intestines, veins and nerves are cleansed.
Breathing is also interesting because it reflects every stronger feeling in the breathing process. In other words, with a trained eye you can already tell from the type of breathing which emotion prevails in a person being observed. In addition, certain breathing techniques can lead to a deep soothing and relaxing. In addition, the intelligence can be promoted by breathing. Intuition and creativity can be improved. Finally, certain breathing techniques are used to better turn inward to get in touch with the inner self in meditation.
The type of breathing techniques that can be used for this purpose are called pranayama. Pran means life energy. And ayam is translated as develop or improve. After reading each technique, take a moment to try out the method itself.
