How Breathing Works
HOW PRANAYAM(CONTROLLED BREATHING) WORKS
Pranayam energizes the pranas (breathing energizes the life force).
Prana (breath) or the life energy contains all the powers of the world. Pranayam (breathing) purifies the life energy. Deep breathing increases the oxygen content in the body.
Disease in the body comes from negative thinking and deficiency of oxygen. Pranayam along with meditation (silence) the inside journey, is the only solution for curing disease without medication.
Negative thinking has a direct effect on the respiratory system. The polluted air (toxins) present inside the body mix with blood and cause disease. Medicine can control a disease for a limited time, but actual healing can be done with Pranayam.
Oxygen (the energy) is vital for the life force. Its deficiency can be fatal. A person who understands this synchronization of breathing leads a healthy and disease free life.
Pranayam regulates the movement of breath & gives peace of mind. When the body gets full amount of oxygen with the process of Pranayam, it builds the immune system (defense mechanism) and thus increases the resistance to toxins from entering the body.
This process, balances all the hormones and the body in general.
When the air is thrown out toxins are also thrown out and when the air is taken the life energy is taken in. This builds the internal strength of the person and whole body becomes rejuvenated with fresh supply of oxygen. Pranayam is the Sanjivini (life saver) for life energy, it gives nutrition to the life energy.
The inherent quality of Pran is "Motion". This quality of Pran is felt and experienced in Vayu (Air), which is always in motion.
Pran is the creation of Brahma (God) the Supreme Being !
