This Hormone May Be Ruining Your Life Without You Knowing It... HELP Yourself with these tools....

Cortisol, known as the "stress hormone," is integral to our body's "fight or flight" response.

Originally designed to help us survive life in the wild, the "fight or flight" response was essential when our ancient ancestors were faced with sudden, brief danger like, let's say, a tiger.

However useful in short bursts, releasing cortisol too frequently, as we seem to be doing in response to the ongoing or "chronic" stress of modern life, may have serious, even scary, impacts on our physical, mental and emotional health.

In fact, living in this kind of biological "survival mode" may be making us more vulnerable to everything from cancer to heart disease, and more.

New research, however, is showing one technique extremely effective in helping to reduce cortisol levels.

The Importance of Breathing...

"What if I told you there was an amazing medicine that would drastically reduce your risk of cancer, improve your digestion, and help to eliminate stress and anxiety from your life.  We would be talking about a modern miracle cure, right?

Did I mention that this medicine is 100% free?  In fact it's right next to you as you read this!

The medicine I'm referring to is FRESH AIR!!

But the percentage of people who actually breath correctly (for optimal health at least!) is startlingly small.  As crazy as it sounds, over 75% of us are not breathing properly and as a result are suffering from a shortage of fresh air to our lungs and oxygen to our cells.

The respiratory system is very unique in that it can be controlled both involuntarily (while we sleep for instance) and voluntarily (during meditation).  The involuntary "auto-pilot" feature of our respiratory system is both a blessing and curse.  It's a blessing because, well, it keeps us alive while we sleep!  And a curse because we tend to forget that we have full control of the cockpit."

What does breathing do?

First off, breathing brings much needed oxygen to your blood cells.  Inspire is the latin word for “breath in the spirit”.  So the word inspiration has two meanings 

1) To be filled with the urge to create or act.

 2) It is the scientific term for taking air into the lungs, crazy right?  I don’t make this stuff up, I just report it to you.   From now on, if your feeling uninspired, well you know the first thing you should be doing more of........

The health benefits of breathing:

- 70% of all Elimination happens through the lungs in the form of gases and tiny particles.
- Deep breathing has a massaging effect on the internal organs.
- Correct inspiration and expiration is essential to healthy digestion.  (Again the expansion of the lung cavity helps to massage internal organs including the intestines.)
- An abundant supply of fresh air provides your blood cells with the oxygen they need to function properly.  Healthy cells should be receiving 98-99% O2 saturation – when you get lower than that, you’re asking for trouble.  In fact, lack of oxygen in blood cells has been linked to the formation of cancerous cells.
In 1931 Otto Heinrich Warburg won the Nobel Peace Prize for proving that cancerous cells were caused by a lack of oxygen respiration. Here’s what Dr Warburg had to say:
“The cause of cancer is no longer a mystery, we know it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements.”
“Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause.
Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar. All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation. All normal body cells are thus obligate aerobes, whereas all cancer cells are partial anaerobes.”
Good breathing is something that we all need to focus on more, even you yogi’s and yogini’s out there!  It could be the easiest way for us to improve our health and prevent any problems down road.

A simple breathing exercise to try right now:

A great way to build your breath and promote naturally fuller breathing is by intentionally exhaling all of your breath completely.  Most of us are not completely eliminating all of the old, stale air that lingers in bottom of our lungs.  Here's a good way to push out the old and usher in the new:

1.) Take a nice big breath

2.) Slowly release this breath until the point where you would naturally stop exhaling, then gently squeeze out a little more air.

3.) Repeat this exercise five times.

This practice will help bring more fresh oxygen into your respiratory system and will also begin to strengthen the muscles in your ribcage.  As you continue to add this exercise into your daily routine you will notice your exhalations becoming deeper.  And WALLAH, you’re cells will be happy and you will be healthy.
