Yes, I know it sounds silly but many health experts say if you want to have better health, reduce blood pressure, and reduce stress it as simple as breathing. Well, not really breathing, if your reading this you must be breathing if not please call 911 now, sorry. The key is breathing better. Do some breathing/relaxing exercises. I was reminded of this today by Dr Mercola, whose health newsletter I get every week via my email. He was reminded of this by attending a talk entitled "The Most Powerful Health Recommendation of Dr. Andrew Weil." Dr Weil was doing this kind of thing way here in America way before it leaked its way into the mainstream. Some say it hasn't and never will and for some they will never let it. Doctors always know best right? NOT! Keep breathing dave, thats right, slower now. I have a certain aversion to the all knowing approach of western medicine and its practioners. Anyway, Dr Weil has an article called Breathing 101. You may think that sounds crazy, breathing is breathing, but its not. I remember one time several years ago when I was having trouble falling asleep. The remedy I found that worked then and still does is a breathing/relaxation exercise. I've got pill aversion. Call it semi-hypnosis, or whatever you want, I learned how to regulate my breathing, relax myself through some breathing exercises, and go to sleep. I haven't had to use it much lately but who knows. When my bride was in such terrible pain, even with meds, one thing that helped her was to work on her breathing, to relax.
I told you, my regular readers, whoever you are, that my blog goes all over the place, but you know that by now. Today, its on breathing. So, don't just read, think, that's weird and go to the next blog, check out your breathing, learn some exercises. It's good for you.
I think I'll go outside now and stand in the rain,
