How to Do Long Breathing Exercises

Basically, you need to inhale through the nose for three seconds, and then exhale aggressively through the mouth for seven seconds, while using the whole body to push out all the air. The two ways proposed by Miki Ryosuke are:

  1. Place one foot in front of your body while placing 90% of your body weight on your back foot. Once you’re in position, breath in for 3 seconds while lifting your arms above your head. Then exhale forcefully to release all the air while contracting all the muscles of your body for 7 seconds, while lowering your arms to your sides.
  2. The second method requires you to stand up straight and tighten the buttocks. Place one hand on your abdomen and another on your lower back. Breath in for 3 seconds, then exhale for 7 seconds while contracting the lower abdomen as strongly as your can.

He proposed 2-10 minutes of these exercises twice a day. Even though his youtube demonstration is only in Japanese, it’s not difficult to understand what he’s trying to say.

The above postures are good for those who suffer from lower back pain. An alternative way to do breathing exercises is that you can stand straight with your legs apart about a hip distance with your knees slightly bent. Inhale for three seconds with your nose, pause for two seconds, then exhale through the mouth forcefully (yes, you can make all kinds of strange sounds). After all the air is completely emptied out, squeeze your core by contracting the muscles around the anus powerfully. The squeezing process can last for 5-7 seconds (personal note: I count from one to 20 while squeezing).

You can incorporate the upper and lower body toning with breathing exercises. For the upper body, while you are squeezing the core, flex your arms to tone the deltoids, or stretch your arms backward to strengthen the triceps while making a fist. If you have chronic shoulder pain, raise both shoulders to the ears, then push the shoulders back while contracting the front and back of the upper arms. You can also strengthen the thigh muscles by leaning onto one leg for few seconds, then change to another leg. As you practice, you will naturally know which area of your body needs stretching, flexing, or squeezing, whether it is your neck, your sides, your shoulder, or your ankles.

Long exhalation by emptying out all the air may be the smartest and most effective way of detoxing our bodies. Your lungs become clear, your blood vessels are filled with fresh oxygen, and our metabolism will increase. When you squeeze the core, your spine naturally becomes straight, your small and large intestines are massaged, and toxins stuck in between the muscles and the organs are being pushed out. You can do these breathing exercises while driving, sitting in offices, or standing in a line at grocery stores. No one will notice what you’re doing (unless you make strange exhalation sounds) while you are burning away unnecessary fat and toning your muscles.

A patient who followed this exercise regimen reported that she lost 5 pounds and two inches around the waist in a week, with no diet change. I am extremely interested in hearing some real experience-based stories. if you are really serious of weight loss, please call the office so that we can set up an effective strategy.

Oxygen is the Key in Burning Fat

miki ryosukeThe picture illustrated here is a Japanese actor, Miki Ryosuke who invented a famous exercise program called “Long Breathing Diet.” After suffering from lower back pain for years, he started doing breathing exercises recommended by his doctor. After a few weeks, he discovered that not only his lower back pain diminished, his weight went down rapidly. In 50 days, he lost a whopping 28 pounds and 5 inches around his waist line. He fine-tuned these techniques to maximize the fat burning process, while toning the entire body.

Similar exercise programs based on breathing such as Oxycise have been around in the US for some time. All of these breathing exercises rely on the one principle– Oxygen is the key to burn fat, not humping and pumping. Since fat is made up of oxygen, carbon dioxide and water, when the oxygen we breathe reaches the fat molecules, it breaks them down into carbon dioxide and water. The carbon dioxide–the waste product of the bodies– is then picked up by the blood stream which returns to to the lungs to be exhaled. Therefore, the more oxygen our bodies use, the more fat will be burned. Long breathing exercises are especially helpful in burning stomach fat.

According to the latest report, the USA has the highest obesity rate in the entire world, with more than 70 percent of population struggle with weight issues.

My Personal Experiences & Who Needs Detox?

For the past five years, I’ve done this program every spring. Somehow, I’ve felt that it was exceptionally difficult this year. This time around, I embarked on this program immediately after an overseas trip, and I was fighting a massive flu simultaneously. Regardless, I stood strong on my resolve and carried through 21 days.

Highlights of my experiences were:

  • Day 2: Massive headaches, nausea, body aches, eye pains (all of these are herxheimer reactions when the body is dumping toxins)
  • Day 3-7: Excessive sleepiness, dry mouth, skin eruptions.
  • Day 8-10: Sugar cravings, especially for carbohydrates.
  • Day 11-21: Increased bowel movements, increased urination, do not feel hungry, aversion to all forms of sugar including sweet fruits.

Benefits I’ve Experienced

 

  • weight gainExcellent lipid panel: My cholesterol level went down to 130 mg/dL from 200 mg/dL (I did blood work right before and after the program)
  • Weight loss especially around the midsection (I lost only 4 lbs as I am kind of under-weight; most people lose 7-15 lbs)
  • Clearer skin and a far less hair loss
  • No sugar cravings
  • No more bloating and gas
  • Better sleep
  • Much higher energy
  • Most importantly, emotional stability and positive attitudes

 

Who Needs Detoxification?

fatty-liverI can say with conviction that everyone needs to detoxify their body regularly as we all are continuously exposed to external and internal toxins. This program will be extremely helpful for those who have: blood pressure issues, fatty liver, kidney malfunctions, frequent urinary tract infections, food and environmental allergies, digestive issues including ulcer or irritable bowels, hormonal disorders, anxiety and moodiness, arthritis, chronic fatigue, and sleep disorders. Well, I think that covers pretty much everyone.

The 21-day Purification/Weight Loss Program

Known to be one of the most effective weight loss/detoxification program, the Standard Process 21-day protocol has been around for decades. Unlike numerous weight-loss programs that promote a quick weight loss–most people gain back their weights plus many extra pounds, this program truly “resets” one’s metabolic rates and make people adopt completely different eating patterns.

The dietary modifications throughout the Standard Process program consist of:

  1. unlimited fresh or frozen vegetables and fruits and preferably twice as many vegetables as fruits (nothing else is allowed for the first 10 days)
  2. at least 64 oz of water a day.
  3. After day 10, ½ cup of cooked lentils or brown rice along with a small portion of protein (poultry or fish) is allowed.
  4. Participants consume a protein–based shake as 2 or 3 times per day.
  5. Supplements designed to cleanse the liver, kidneys, small and large intestines.

For detailed explanation of the program, please visit: https://www.standardprocess.com/Products/…/Patient-Purification-Program-Guide

21-day

The whole program is designed to release toxins gradually and safely. Regardless how much we try to eat clean and healthy, our bodies are loaded with toxins. Naturally occurring toxins that build up in the body can contribute to:

  • Food cravings and weight gain
  • A stuffy feeling in the head
  • Fatigue or difficulty sleeping
  • Indigestion and other temporary gastrointestinal upset
  • Reduced mental clarity
  • Low libido

Amazing Benefits of 21-day Detoxification

I just finished a 21-day detoxification/purification program. Although it was a tough battle, the benefits were so huge that I’ve decided to write about my personal experiences. Hopefully, the readers will be encouraged to try this well-structured, scientifically-proven, and truly transformative program. If you suffer from chronic bloating, fatigue, brain fog, joint pains, hot flashes, irregular bowel movements, moodiness, poor sleep, sugar cravings, cannot-lose-weight-no-matter-what, this program is for you.

Drop Weight through 21-Day Detox Program

Food addiction, especially sugar addition, usually stem from Candida (yeast, mold, and fungus) overgrowth. The first and foremost important thing to do is to embark on internal cleansing which may be filled with parasites, bacteria, virus, and candida, along with heavy metal deposits. In addition, we recommend a drastic diet change that limits gluten, dairy products, and sugar intake.

March is an ideal time to clean up undigested food debris and detrimental parasite/candida buildup during the winter season. One of the most effective, gentle, and easy-to-do program is Standard Process 21-day detox program. This program consists of 4 different nutritional supplements designed to detoxify the nervous, endocrine, and digestive systems. Typically, people drop 10-20 pounds of their weight, while experiencing a renewed energy level, easier digestion, improved sleep patterns, and an incredible sense of well-being.
