In June I sent an email to Anders because my daughter complained about severe pain in her thoracic spine with even the smallest effort. I got a great reply about Conscious Breathing, and this has helped both me and my daughter. I live with chronic pain, fibromyalgia, rheumatism, MS (multiple sclerosis) and five lumbar discs that are completely worn out and my daughter has severe asthma.
We slowly started to become more aware of the way we were breathing, for example, when playing games, watching TV or in similar situations. Today Conscious Breathing has become a part of our daily life, and I have been able to lower my pain medication, and my daughter’s acute asthma medication is needed far less often than before.
Then we started to pay attention to our breathing in other situations – my daughter when biking, jumping on the trampoline and during other activities. I try to be aware of my breathing no matter what I do, for example when baking, resting, cooking, berry picking etc.
The pain in the thoracic
spine gone after a month
We also started to tape our mouths while asleep and cut down on unhealthy things like candy, soda and cookies, except on special occasions. My daughter has a lot more energy and is much happier since she started with Conscious Breathing, and the pain in her thoracic spine, that diminished immediately, was completely gone after a month.
I have regained much more energy, and despite all my illnesses, I’m able to spend more time with my daughter. My newfound energy also makes it possible to spend a lot more time with my friends and my partner than before.
Sofia started to nag at her father (we are separated) to start doing the Conscious Breathing exercises, because he was always tired and didn’t have the energy for pretty much anything. Since he started with Conscious Breathing he is energetic from the moment he gets out of bed, during the whole day, and until he falls asleep in the evening.
Our friends have
We also talked to a friend of mine who has severe asthma. She is a heavy smoker and mother of four – an 18-year-old boy with a diagnosis of slight developmental disabilities, a 6-year-old daughter and 1 1/2-year-old twin boys. She has been able to cut down on her asthma medication since she started with Conscious Breathing, and she also has a lot more energy and can cope with her kids much better than before.
When the kids are asleep she still feels energetic, and she and her husband have regained their love for each other and don’t fight as much as before. And this is all due to the fact that they have started with Conscious Breathing!
I have talked to several of my friends, and they’ve also got more energy and endurance thanks to Conscious Breathing. Many of my friends with severe pain, that I’ve met during all the years I’ve been sick, have also improved their health and energy since they started doing breathing retraining.
I am so happy that I came in touch with you, that I’ve been able to work together with my daughter on improving our breathing, and that both of our lives have gotten so much better 🙂
