One of the basic needs of our cells is the oxygen. It is an essential nutrient that we cannot live without even for a few minutes.
You get oxygen from breathing fresh air, oxygen-rich foods, green vegetables, from exercises and breathing exercises.
Walking to get fresh air, and other physical movements help oxidice our cells. Breathing-exercises and movements release oxygen to the cells and calm our nervous system, creating more energy. We exhale carbon dioxide and waste products through our lungs.
A well-balanced training practice gets the lymphatic system going, as well as the pulse. Respiration has a big effect on how you stabilize the pH of your body. By perspiring, we also eliminate waste products and acids, provided we have normal respiration.
In our modern lifestyle, many people have breathing problems like hyperventilation even without knowing it. Often the stress in our mind and body has a big influence on our breathing pattern.
Stress can have more of an impact on the body than any food or drink we consume. Because when we are under stress, the body produces cortisol. Repeated stress and on-going cortisol production can have a huge negative impact on the body. Stress affects the nervous system, in the process affecting our breathing pattern that in turn affects our body pH balance.
Our diaphragm is a very important organ for our lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is one of our DETOXIFIACTION channels. Deep breathing helps your lymphatic system work better and the diaphragm will massage your organs for a better digestion and flow.
