The breath gives life energy. We breathe, so long as we live. We breathe, without us having to think about it. We breathe during sleep. This is because there is someone watching over our breath. Someone who never sleeps: The respiratory centre in the brain. It works tirelessly and ensures that we are constantly supplied with oxygen and carbon dioxide can give. The respiratory centre feels exactly the situation in which we find ourselves. Are we stressed or relaxed? We sleep or we are awake? We sit in a chair or we run the departing bus afterwards?
Finally, it is extremely important for our survival that we always have enough oxygen. In turn, the carbon dioxide must be excreted as a waste product of our cellular respiration again.
With increased physical the breathing activity automatically increases. Why? The body needs more oxygen. At the same time the increase in carbon dioxide emissions must be exhaled. It then comes to rest, the respiratory rate decreases again. The oxygen demand decreases and the amount of carbon dioxide exhaled carbon dioxide bring the levels back into normal ranges.
STRESS DESTROYS THE NATURAL AIRFLOW
Because breathing is unconscious and thus adapts to the individual rhythm of life, many people breathe shallow and cramped. Prolonged stress and anxiety can lead to a respiratory rate which is actually necessary only in escape situations. “Breathe Right” means letting the breath flow effortlessly through the body. The breath should flow up into the abdomen and pelvis and also be felt in the back and kidney area.

On the other hand if the blood is enriched with too little oxygen, the blood cells stick together and jam together with proteins in the lymphatic system. The natural transport mechanisms are severely disturbed. Toxins get stuck in the body and minerals don’t reach their destination. According to West, these toxins can accumulate, for example in the joints and cause pain, which are then diagnosed as arthritis.
