You are the alchemist of your inner pharmacy—simply using the power of your breath! And, the benefits of conscious breathing techniques are usually felt in minutes.
In the United States, almost 45% of the population lives with a chronic disease such as osteoarthritis, asthma, GERD and heartburn, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or anxiety/depression and mood disorders.
Most chronic conditions are self-induced and are a product of our lifestyles and the result of an imbalance of chemicals that our own bodies produce.
By devoting ten percent of your leisure time to “healthy aging” activities (roughly five hours a week), you can affect the progression of these preventable chronic diseases.
In You Are Your Own Best Medicine, Frédéric Saldmann, M.D., verifies the common sense of holistic medicine with the latest medical research to reveal simple do-it-yourself remedies that activate the body’s natural healing powers and address common ailments like allergies, sleep disorders, cardiovascular problems, sexual dysfunction, and excess weight.
If you have a specific goal you are trying to achieve, like reduced stress, increased energy, or better focus, a conscious breathing can help:
- manage anxiety and stress
- create balance in your mind & body
- enhance personal development
- reconnect to yourself & others
- regulate overall emotional state
- enhance focus and concentration
- improve sleep and relaxation
- create energy and motivation
Indeed, you are the alchemist of your inner pharmacy—simply using the power of your breath! And yes, the benefits of the conscious breathing you’ll utilize during breathwork are frequently felt right away—mind, body, and soul.
