Breathing exercises help you breathe better and release the toxins in your brain.
The human body takes in a lot of toxic substances, both through the air and
through food and drink. Apart from this, various toxins are also released in
the body as a result of the various processes that are going on. These toxins
have to be released on a continuous basis or else they will accumulate in the
body with serious results.
One of the best ways of releasing these toxins is by means of exhaling while
breathing. One funny fact is that most of do not breathe properly. Just take
a look at the picture like this. With each breath that we take, we take in oxygen.
This oxygen is carried by the blood to every cell of the body and every cell
must indeed get enough oxygen not just to survive but to remain healthy as well.
So it is imperative that we make an honest attempt to breathe properly. But first
of course we have to make sure that we are breathing in unpolluted air. The time
best for breathing exercises is early in the morning when the air is comparatively
Now what you have to do is this. Again, sit comfortably so that there is no strain
to any part of your body. It is not imperative that you close your eyes, but
I have always noticed that the exercise works better when the eyes are closed.
When you are ready, what you have to do is to breathe in deeply and slowly, and
feel the fresh air filling up your lungs until it just can’t take any more.
Conjure up images of the air encircling throughout your body and reaching every
cell, literally bathing it with oxygen. Of course it doesn’t happen that
way but the image helps a lot. Then hold your breath for a few seconds and then
very slowly exhale letting out all that foul air.
Again conjure up an image of all the toxins being released from your body. Every
cell has become free of the burden it was carrying. Now pause for a second or
two and again breathe in deeply, slowly letting your lungs fill up with all that
good, clean, rejuvenating air. Repeat this exercise at least ten times and take
your time for it taking care not to rush through.
When you have done that part of the exercise it is time for the second part.
Again sit with your eyes closed, but this time, keep one nostril closed with
the help of your index finger. It is best to close the right nostril first and
that too with your right index finger. Now breathe in deeply and slowly through
your left nostril keeping the right nostril closed. When you have held air for
a second or two, release your right nostril and breathe out through it.
While you are breathing out conjure up an image of all the toxins being released
form your head and the brain especially. And as you breathe in conjure up images
of the clean air circulating though out your brain freeing it of all the worries
and trouble and lightening it.
Repeat this exercise with the other nostril closed and in this way alternate
between the nostrils at least ten times. The entire breathing exercise need not
take more than ten minutes.
Avoid inhaling polluting gases like automobile fumes and second-hand
smoking. Many of the gases let out by automobiles and other exhaust
pipes are highly toxic
and they itself can cause a headache.
Second hand smoking by which you inhale the smoke from your neighbor’s
cigarette too can cause a headache. This is especially true if you are a non-smoker
and not used to the smell smoke.
Try steam inhalation. This is especially true for those who have a sinus problem.
Steam inhalation is an excellent way of clearing all the spaces inside. If
you have an infection too, a steam inhalation can be very soothing. But there
is a word of caution that I have to offer here.
Be very careful about you eyes. Remember that it is not advisable to expose
your eyes to steam and so take care to protect your eyes when you are inhaling
Another thing that you should be careful about is the temperature of the steam.
You just need fairly hot water and not scorching hot, sizzling vapors of water.
The object is not to scald your skin but to send some warm vapors up your nose.
In fact steam inhalation is one of the most recommended therapies for people
who get sinus related headache.
The point that you should bear in mind is that the sooner you inhale once you
get the headache, the better. If you wait for long hours before you inhale,
you are going to have to inhale longer and at shorter intervals for the inhalation
to have any effect on the headache.
Menthol vapors too can be of some relief. Menthol vapors too can
help towards clearing your sinuses. Try dissolving a balm or
ointment in the hot water that
has to be inhaled. Then inhale the vapors. This is the best way of inhaling
Breathe plenty of fresh air.
