Follow this invigorating breathing exercise for a quick energy boost. This exercise is a part of the Dr. Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease. Learn more here: http://undoitwithornish.com.
Dean Ornish: "In other disciplines, particularly in Eastern medicine, there's more than oxygen in your breath - there's energy. Sometimes it's called prana, or shakti.
Techniques that allow you to breathe more quickly and rapidly, like bellows breathing, allow you to invigorate your body. Whereas other techniques, like alternate nostril breathing, allow you to balance your sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
Now, Western physiology is just beginning to catch up with what people in the East have known for some time. But even though the science isn't always there, you can experience these benefits and they're very powerful."
Stop chest pain. Halt the progression of disease in your body. Start feeling better by changing your life.
