If you fear inflammatory diseases (cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc.), and want another tool to help your healthy body, try this.

If you have high blood pressure and would like a tool to help situations that spark your stress, try this.

If respiration problems run in your family and you want to know respiration mechanics that help to avoid those problems, try this.

When I started using breathing practices, I couldn’t take a full deep breath for the life of me. I knew that something wasn’t working very well even though I didn’t have asthma or heart problems. I simply had an old habit of breathing shallowly. Now, in addition to helping my health, I use my breathing pattern as feedback for my stress response and it provides immense power to deal more effectively with events that get me off kilter. I feel grateful to share what I’ve learned and feel confident that you will benefit too.

10-noon, $30, check or cash

Fountain Square 216, Bloomington

Would you like to:
Help your heart beat more steadily?
Relax even when you feel anxious?
Digest your food better?
Fall asleep easier.

You may have breathing habits that engage the fight/flight/possum response even when you want to relax.
If you:
  • gasp for air even when you’re not running
  • breathe shallowly even when you’re not afraid
  • feel as if you haven’t taken a breath in a long time
  • sigh deeply and then hold your breath for no good reason
  • have panic attacks and want to get a grip
 This workshop is for you.
In a power-packed two hours, we explore frequency, mechanics and volume of an easy, deep, effective, baseline breath.  You may be working way too hard for every breath.
If you practice 10-minutes a day for a week and it doesn’t help you, you get your money back! 
Cynthia Bretheim, MS, LMT, NBCMT, lived and worked at the Himalayan International Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy for four years.

Better Breathing Mechanics?

fallTree[1] Your life requires that you take good care of yourself.  When you feel off center, you become less aware of subtle and profound connections between muscle and nervous system, between thought and tissue, between energetic flow and stagnation.  So, you take personal care and health very seriously. 
 
Still, as dedicated to health and growth as you are, you have set backs and issues to deal with.  There is no magic bullet or theory.  Health and satisfaction comes in hundreds of little steps, choices, serendipities, and breaths. 
 
If you have any interest in finding out more about your own breathing pattern, what it means to your choices, and how to use it to help you, come to my Better Breathing workshop on Saturday, February 18, 2018, 1:00-3:00, in Fountain Square.  Here is more information.  ==> ==> ==>

Drink!!! Hydration and Your Health.

How easily do you want blood cells to glide through your veins?  Do you want your sinuses to process pollen easily? Do you want to cushion your spine and brain? How easily do you want nutrient particles and waste to move into and out of your intestinal walls?   Imagine how difficult it is for your guts to move chips along a dry or mucous-filled canal?  Oy!  Moisture is needed, and it’s easiest if every day you drink the appropriate amount of healthy, clean water.

How much water to drink?  Half your body weight in ounces is an easy way to measure.  If you weigh 180; that’s 90 ounces. I drink a glass on the way to the bathroom in the morning.  Then, I fill a liter bottle and put it next to my desk.  By noon, I know I’ve drunk half of my day’s water.  I refill the bottle, and by evening, I’m drunk enough.

How do you know if you’re drinking enough?  Try the pinch test–pinch the flesh on the top of your forearm.  The skin should easily pinch and return to normal.  Three  ten-ounce glasses with your meals and a morning coffee just doesn’t cut it, unless you weigh 80 pounds. How long do you spend in the bathroom for your morning bowel movement?  A couple minutes at most should do it. Easy evacuation depends on adequate hydration.  

I often don’t drink with meals (sometimes drinking with meal helps, sometimes it doesn’t–more in a future post). Your hydration needs depend on your diet. How much pasta, bread, chips and dry foods to you eat? Think about sliding that through a dry gullet.

Be good to your guts and your fluid-filled body by drinking water.  Spring water?  City water?  That’s another article.  The best to you today!
