Benefits of Slow Breathing
Recently in the Strengthening Your Immune System class I discussed the benefits of slow breathing. So, I was excited last week when Michael Greger, MD, posted his article, “The Benefits of Slow Breathing.”
The benefits of mindful breathing are limitless. Breathing exercises can cause an immediate shift from a high stress, sympathetic dominant state to a more calm, cool and collected parasympathetic dominant state. This is why you are often told to “take a deep breath” when you are in a stressful situation. It calms the mind and nervous system.
At Palm Desert Hypnosis I teach mindfulness based breathing and stress reduction techniques that put you in control so that you can enhance your health and wellness.

The Benefits of Slow Breathing
“A healthy heart is not a metronome,” as a study titled exactly that explains. “Your heart rate goes up and down with your breathing. When you breathe in, your heart rate tends to go up. When you breathe out, your heart rate tends to go down.” Test this out on yourself right now by feeling your pulse change as you breathe in and out.
Practicing slow breathing a few minutes a day may have lasting beneficial effects on a number of medical and emotional disorders, including asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and depression. In the United States, we’ve also put it to use to improve batting performance in baseball.
