Conscious Breathing

Number 2 - 2016

Hi reader !

John Manly from Canada runs a successful blog where he helps people with Diabetes to new insights and a better life. In a nice review of the Sleep Tape he writes:

"My wife, Nicole – who has had type-1 diabetes for 39 years – was in a wheelchair last October. Switching to nasal breathing 24/7 is a big reason why she can now complete 3 km walks outdoors."

The next opportunity to take our popular Breathing Instructor Course starts on Sept. 1st. Read more.

We keep getting very positive feedback, many of them "life changing". In this issue Diana and Pernille share their great testimonials of what Conscious Breathing has done for them in terms of reduced weight, pain, asthma and anxiety.

- Please note: If you take medications, be prepared that the need may decrease as you start doing breathing retraining.

I have lost 10 kg (22 pounds) in five weeks

What are the benefits of using the Relaxator?

The Relaxator Breathing Retrainer is a small and convenient tool to improve your breathing habits. It’s extremely easy to use—simply place the Relaxator in your mouth and when you exhale it provides an adjustable level of resistance, which helps you achieve optimal breathing with a resulting increase in your oxygen uptake. In addition to making your breathing more rhythmical, slow and relaxed, the Relaxator also stimulates your diaphragm to work better.  Read more >>

Shallow mouth breathing behind my asthma and anxiety

Mouth breathing behind my asthma and anxiety

Previously I had always been very sensitive to cold weather and had been forced to take the maximum allowed dose of my asthma medication. When it was at its worst in the winter I couldn’t even walk 20 meters to the car before my airways constricted and I got short of breath and had an asthma-attack. But a three hour breathing course have changed my entire life. Now I can overcome my anxiety and asthma simply through braething.  Read more >>

As a former chief physician at the Falu Hospital in Sweden, I have noticed that many of my patients with multifaceted chronic problems (illness) had difficulties with their breathing. Often they had a low-grade form of hyperventilation.
