BREATHING 1




'You have a choice. Live or die. Every breath is a choice. 
Every minute is a choice. 
To be or not to be. Chuck Palahniuk 

'You can live for two months without food and two weeks without water, but you can live only a few minutes without air'old Chinese saying

'Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts.'  Thich Nhat Hanh 


'Except during the nine months before he draws his first breath no man manages his affairs as well as a tree does'  George Bernard Shaw 

'Questions are the breath of life for a conversation.'  James Nathan Miller

Breathing happens through the Lungs, Nose, Diaphragm, Skin.
Our Lungs deliver O2 to organs,  tissues, blood, cells thus improving body's energy and vitality.

The Lungs diffuse O2 into the blood stream, remove Carbon Dioxide, absorb toxins and exhale them, they have macrophages and white blood cells to eliminate Germs, Dust mites and are designed to eliminate carbon dioxide - but not Toxic waste (they do not have structures for it like the Liver, Kidneys, Lymph nodes)...

Cold, flu, viral infections,bacterial, URTI/sinusitis or bronchitis, Irritants inhaled into the airway passages , Allergies, Hay fever (allergic rhinitis), lowered Immune system, Parasites, Fungy, Molds create cough. 

Coughs are caused mainly by the body's attempt to rid itself of excess toxic mucus through the lungs and bronchial tubes; the toxins irritate tender lining of throat, causing the throat to 'cough it up'.
It is considered that the asthmatic breath is many times more acidic than normal breath [1000 times according to 'The American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine (March 2000) ' http://www.drmirkin.com/morehealth/8313.html 

Normal breath is slightly alkaline pH=7.4 and Asthma breath has an acid pH=5
Acidity because the body cannot Expell the waste - from glandular it goes to the lymph and it is recirculated, reabsorbed and not eliminated.....
Acidic toxic gases enter the blood stream from colon -  the Acidic waste goes to Liver and Kidney for Detox. The Liver and the Kidneys are overburdened with processing of toxins that they pass it on to the Lungs
'Lungs are a dumping ground for Kidneys -  the kidney system aids the downward movement of the lung qi (the kidney grasps the lung qi). "BL-13 will be sore to the touch on all asthmatics.' Acupuncture: A Comprehensive Text (3)) http://www.itmonline.org/arts/acuasth.htm

By  strengthening the kidneys and tonifying the spleen chinese medicine attempts to alleviate asthma.
Poor nutrition, particularly deficiencies in antioxidants and certain minerals including vitamins A, C, and E, potassium, magnesium, selenium, and zinc worsen Lungs function.
It is better when the foods contain Alkaline forming Foods (80% ) and Acid Forming (20%)
- a proper diet is rich in in antioxidants, magnesium and other minerals, fruits and vegetables, nuts, and whole grains , and omega-3 fatty acids (fish) and low in fat, to boost the Immune system. http://www.itmonline.org/arts/acuasth.htm

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) mentions two functional types of breathing: the energising breath, which gathers vital energy and focuses more on inhalation, and the cleansing breath, which detoxifies and happens mostly during exhalation.

'The spirit was said to be carried in one's breath.'  Eve Glicksman 
Traditional Chinese Medicine considers that the Corporeal Soul resides in the Lungs, BL42 (bladder meridian point) POHU is the Soul's Household, po door

'The conflict that is linked to the bronchia is always one of fear in the territory. The territorial fear can be experienced in two ways: as a motor conflict or as a sensory conflict. The sensory territorial fear manifests itself during the healing phase as pneumonia and in the epileptoid crisis as a pneumonic lysis. "Asthma" involves the bronchial musculature which responds to a motor, i.e. not being able to move or maneuver, territorial fear conflict.
 A territorial fear can only be experienced by men or by post-menopausal women. However, a left-handed young woman can also develop a bronchial carcinoma, but only as a result of a female scare-fright conflict. The bronchial carcinoma would in this case be accompanied with a depression. Here too, the exceptions would be the constellations and hormonal changes' . New German Medicine

'One of the primary inflammation-causing fats in our diets is believed to be arachidonic acid. Arachidonic acid is found in certain foods, such as egg yolks, shellfish, and meat. Eating less of these foods is thought to decrease inflammation and asthma symptoms.
A German study examined data from 524 children and found that asthma was more prevalent in children with high levels of arachidonic acid.'
A strategy to reduce levels of arachidonic acid is to increase intake of beneficial fats such as EPA (eicosapentanoic acid) from fish oil, and GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) from borage or evening primrose oil.
Omega-3 fatty acid capsules may interact with blood-thinning drugs such as warfarin (Coumadin) and aspirin. Side effects may include indigestion and bleeding. To reduce a fishy aftertaste after taking fish oil capsules, they should be taken just before meals.
A study examining food diaries of 68,535 women found that women who had a greater intake of tomatoes, carrots and leafy vegetables had a lower prevalence of asthma.
High consumption of apples may protect against asthma.
Daily intake of fruits and vegetables in childhood decreased the risk of asthma.
A University of Cambridge study found that asthma symptoms in adults is associated with a low dietary intake of fruit, vitamin C and manganese.
Researchers at the University of Dundee, Scotland, evaluated the effects of butterbur in people with allergic asthma who were also using inhalers. They found that butterbur added to the anti-inflammatory effect of the inhalers.
The active constituents are petasin and isopetasin, which are believed to reduce smooth muscle spasm and have an anti-inflammatory effect.
Another study examined the use of butterbur root extract in 80 people with asthma for four months. The number, duration, and severity of asthma attacks decreased and symptoms improved after using butterbur. More than 40 percent of people using asthma medication at the start of the study reduced their intake of medication by the end of the study.
Side effects of butterbur may include indigestion, headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrha, or constipation. Pregnant or nursing women, children, or people with kidney or liver disease should not take butterbur.
