Most of us don’t pay much attention to it. In fact, we take it for granted. And worse, we don’t even relate it to our health, unless we experience problems with it. Breathing, the one thing we do every second of the day.
Most people are shallow breathers, and I was no exception. I discovered years ago during my osteoporosis research, there is a relevant link between breathing properly and bone health.
As I immersed myself deeper into the topic, I soon realized that deep breathing is an important part of a healthy lifestyle because it is also an efficient detoxifier. So I’ve worked on changing my own breathing habits. It took a bit of practice, but now it’s second nature to me, and I don’t even have to think about it.
Deep Breathing and Your Bone Health
Breathing is important to bone health for several reasons. In the Osteoporosis Reversal Program, I talk about how stress can harm your bones. Deep breathing is a great way to lower your stress levels.
And deep breathing is a great way to rid your body of acidifying toxins, including osteoporosis drugs.
Other Benefits of Deep Breathing
When you breathe into your chest (shallow breathing), you’re only filling the top part of your lungs, which means you’re short-changing your system by not taking in as much oxygen as you need. And if you’re not breathing in enough oxygen, you’re also not exhaling enough carbon dioxide. A pattern of shallow breathing can affect just about every system in your body, including your bones, as I mentioned earlier.
When you get into the habit of deep breathing, you’ll experience a host of benefits:
- Your stress levels will decrease, and you’ll find those tight neck and shoulder muscles relaxing.
- You’ll experience less anxiety. And you’ll have a great way to control anxiety when it does occur – just take several slow, deep breaths. You’ll be amazed at the results.
- Full exhalations allow your body to rid itself of toxins, and full exhalations are only possible when you breath fully and deeply.
- Your blood circulation will improve.
- You may also find that your digestion improves, because deep breathing stimulates the organs of the digestive system.
- You’ll feel better, because deep breathing moves lymph through the body, and releases endorphins and neuropeptides in the brain.
How Do I Know If I’m a Shallow Breather?
Shallow breathing means that you’re breathing into your chest instead of letting the breath go all the way down into your abdomen. Here’s an easy way to check out your breathing:
- Lie down on a bed or on the floor.
- Place one of your hands lightly over your abdominal area.
- Take a couple of breaths, just as you normally would. Don’t try to change anything about your breathing for the purposes of this experiment.
If your abdomen pushes your hand out and you feel the breath expanding your abdomen as you inhale, you’re already doing great! You may also notice your back expanding and pressing into the bed or floor.
But if your hand stays still, and you feel the breath going down into your chest, then you’re probably a shallow breather and can benefit from some practice in this area.
So What Do I Do About It?
If you’re a shallow breather, start by simply paying attention to your breath. Take some slow, deep breaths and focus on feeling the breath all the way down into your diaphragm (abdominal area) as you inhale. Then exhale just as slowly and fully.
Don’t force the breath. Just take nice and luxuriously relaxed breaths.
In I encourage you to practice consciously breathing into the diaphragm twice a day for 10 or more minutes, especially during the cleanse. Try to find a quiet spot where you can get comfortable. Do this in a quiet spot and get comfortable. If you can do this outside or near an open window, it would be even better!
Here’s one of the breathing tips I include in OsteoCleanse™:
While practicing deep breathing, it helps to visualize a balloon filling in your abdomen. First, the bottom gets bigger. As you visualize the balloon filling with air in your abdomen, you will naturally breathe deep into the belly allowing your lungs to fill and your abdomen, sides, and back to expand with your breath.
Why Should You Do the 7 Day OsteoCleanse™?
Many members of the Save Our Bones community have voiced concerns about having taken osteoporosis drugs in general. Not only about the ongoing side effects, but also about the long-term effects.
So I developed a 7 Day Cleanse that I follow twice a year. It’s specifically designed as a “jumpstart” for people who have taken osteoporosis drugs, and it will speed up the removal of these drugs from your system.
The OsteoCleanse™ is an easy-to-follow 6-step system, all backed by scientific studies. Cleansing with deep breathing is Step 4. Here are all of them:
