Skull Breath-1-2-Health Punch


Here’s a one-two punch that can improve your brain.

The first punch is in the way we breath.

Breath.  It’s the first thing we take and the last thing we do.   The first sign of life. Breathing.

Yet most of us forget its importance… unless deprived!

Normally we take between 12 to 20 breaths per minute.

Regretfully modern fast pace living encourages rapid, shallow breathing, and we take more breaths per minute than normal.

When this daily business of living leads us to breath in a shallow way, our body gets into and remains in a cyclical state of stress.

Such breathing leads to a self reinforcing downward health loop.  Our stress causes shallow breathing and our shallow breathing causes stress.

Shallow breathing turns stress from a response into a habit.

Long-term shallow breathing can seriously affect our health. It lowers white blood cell that are the bulwark of our immune system, can create panic attacks, cause dry mouth and fatigue, aggravate respiratory problems, and lead to cardiovascular issues.

In addition a shallow breathing pattern reduces the use of use muscles in our shoulders, necks, and chests to expand our lungs. This adds to the risk of neck and back pain as well as headaches.

On the other hand deep breathing enhances health in many ways.  Over the centuries wise healers have found many ways to use different types of deep breathing  to improve health.

One way to improve health through deep breathing is called Skull Breathing Pranayama.

Dr. John Douillard writes about skull breathing (1) at his Lifespa.com website.

He writes: As rising levels of stress are linked to ever-rising levels of chronic disease, researchers look to time-tested stress reducing techniques to break this cycle.

Recently, more and more studies are published on the science of breathing, also called pranayama.

The word prana means life force and ayama means to expand, suggesting that pranayama breathing exercises expand life force into the body, eliciting a host of health benefits

Skull Breathing for Weight Loss, Blood Sugar + Brain Cleansing

Benefits of Kapalabhati Pranayama

Kapalabhati is derived from two words: kapala, which means skull, and bhati, which means to illuminate. Kapalabhati is designed to accelerate breath from the lower abdominals into the skull, supporting healthy drainage of toxins from brain lymphatics, also known as glymphatics.

Kapalabhati is a rapid nose breathing or pranayama exercise where a normal inhalation is followed by a forceful exhalation. During normal respiration, the exhalation is more passive, driven primarily by the relaxation of the diaphragm, and the inhalation is more active, as a result of contraction of the diaphragm. During kapalabhati, the abdominal muscles, the secondary muscles of breathing, are engaged to elicit a forceful exhalation.

Studies find that kapalabhati produces emotional stability and improved stress-handling ability. Elevated parasympathetic activity has been linked to better oxygenation of the brain and heart, while maintaining a low heart rate-thus the name kapalabhati or skull illuminating.

During kapalabhati pranayama, all five lobes of the lungs are oxygenated, whereas during normal respiration, the lower lobes of the lungs are unused and considered dead space. Oxygenating the dead space not only boosts oxygenation potential of breathing, but enhances detoxification and fat burning-weight loss potential found mostly in the highly vascularized lower lobes of the lungs.

Note: While kapalabhati does not cause hyperventilation, like with any breathing exercise, do not continue if it causes dizziness or
lightheadedness. Hyperventilation is as a result of build-up of carbon dioxide during rapid breathing. Studies show that during kapalabhati, carbon dioxide levels remain the same as during breathing at rest. Kapalabhati is best performed with an empty stomach, bladder, and bowels.

Breathing is vital to good health because it burns glucose, the fuel in our body.

The key to good health is the correct balance of oxygen and glucose in the cells of the body.

Glucose metabolism creates energy and heat.  This process also creates adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, a molecule that releases energy when needed by the cell.

There are two types of glucose metabolism: aerobic metabolism, which is with oxygen, and anaerobic metabolism, which is without oxygen.

Aerobic metabolism is the oxidization of glucose by oxygen in the mitochondria of cells. This process produces carbon dioxide and ATP as well as energy.  The ATP provides cells with the energy required for the synthesis of proteins from amino acids and the replication of DNA.

Our cells have a lifespan ranging from 2 days for stomach lining cells, 2 to 4 weeks for skin cells, a year for pancreatic cells and 30 years for bone cells, so the body is in a continual state of rebuilding itself.

Our DNA code, that requires oxygen and glucose, contains the instructions needed to make the proteins and molecules essential for our successful continued existence.

In other words the burning of oxygen and glucose provide us with energy now and energy to reproduce ourselves so we have more nows tomorrow.

Anaerobic metabolism is caused by activity beyond the capabilities of our breathing, when the oxygen level in muscle cells fall too low. Burning glucose for energy without oxygen creates lactic acid that makes muscles ache from lactic acid buildup. Too much anaerobic metabolism causes the body to hit the wall, a natural defense mechanism that prevents permanent damage during extreme exertion by slowing the key systems needed to maintain muscle contraction.

A healthy brain requires plenty of oxygen in the brain.  In fact it is estimated that the brain uses 20% of our oxygen intake.

A Scientific American article “Why the Brain Needs so Much Oxygen: (2) says: It is well established that the brain uses more energy than any other human organ, accounting for up to 20 percent of the body’s total haul. Until now, most scientists believed that it used the bulk of that energy to fuel electrical impulses that neurons employ to communicate with one another. Turns out, though, that is only part of the story.

A new study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA indicates that two thirds of the brain’s energy budget is used to help neurons or nerve cells “fire” or send signals. The remaining third, however, is used for what study co-author Wei Chen, a radiologist at the University of Minnesota Medical School, refers to as “housekeeping,” or cell-health maintenance.

The second punch after the deep breathing is an exercise to gets oygen and glucose to the brain.

Everyone knows about hypoglycemia but few people understand Neuroglycopenia.  Neuroglycopenia is a medical term that refers to a shortage of glucose (glycopenia) in the brain, usually due to hypoglycemia.  What few people fail to understand is that blood sugar is important but the brain does not get its glucose from blood.

Our blood can be full of oxygen, but a next step is required for that life giving oxygen to reach the brain.

Most of the brain does not get anything from blood.  The body has a mechanism called the Blood Brain Barrier that is specifically designed to keep blood and brain apart.  “Blood and brain, the twain shall never meet”.

The brain gets its glucose from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).   The brain creates CSF, a clear fluid, from the blood.  CSF then circulates from the brain around the brain and down the spinal cord.  CSF carries glucose to the brain.

The modern stress filled lifestyle can create Neuroglycopenia.  Modern lifestyles impair glucose transport.  Have you ever noticed that if you exercise after a meal, you are less hungry than if you are quiescent.  I have always wondered,  “If I am burning energy why am I not more hungry than if I am not burning energy?”

The answer is sitting still contributes to neuroglycopenia.  The CSF, and the glucose it contains, is partially moved around the brain and spinal cord by two pumping mechanisms at the top (cranium) and the bottom (sacrum) of the spinal column.  These pumps are activated by physical movement and deep diaphragm breathing.  The diaphragm muscle contracts on the sacrum when you breath in deeply and helps pump CSF up around the spinal cord into the brain.

When we sit around too much the CSF stagnates and not enough fresh CSF with the correct supply of glucose gets to the brain.

Regretfully the brain’s response is not “Hey get up and move around so you can pump the damn glucose up here.  Do you want me to die or something?”  Instead the brain keeps it simple and just says “EAT”.

Moving around and not sitting in one place too long is a really important part of weight control because this goes to the very core of the EAT response.

The second punch is a simple exercise that helps get oxygen to the brain.

Breathe in and move your shoulders back and take a deep breath.  Picture pinning something in the middle of your back with your shoulder blades.  Then breathe out and slowly move your head down, chin to chest and bring your shoulders forward.

Do this slowly, gently with deep, slow breaths.  If you feel even a touch of pain you are doing it too forcefully.

Does the exercise seem too simple to you?   This is the simplest, easiest, most convenient exercise I have ever tried and this is why it is so profound.

Simple works.

Utterly simple works extremely well.

This exercise helps move fresh, glucose rich CSF to the brain.

This is also a great weight control tool.  When I start to feel the hunger, I do this exercise.  “Breathe in as I move my shoulders back and take a deep breath. 

exercise

Breathe in.

exercise

Breathe out.

There are huge natural health benefits to be gained by this 1-2 punch.  You’ll feel greater peace of mind and calmness.  The blood sugar roller coaster is one of the four main roots of all types of disease.

Too much blood sugar causes the body to release numerous hormones including Epinephrine and cortisol.  These hormones are contributors of increased anxiety, nervousness and stress.  Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline) is released by your body when you are under threat.  This is known as the ‘fight/flight response’.  When adrenaline is released your experience the physiological symptoms of fear, faster heart rate, faster more shallow breathing, muscle tension.  There is long standing evidence linking depression and the hormone cortisol.  In other words high blood sugar can  increase anxiety.  Anxiety and depression can create an urge to eat comfort food which energizes the negative high blood sugar cycle.

Chronic blood sugar problems have been shown to be associated with numerous health disorders such as:  Anxiety and depression –
Metabolic Syndrome – Cardiovascular disease – Diabetes  – Impaired insulin action – Impaired glucose control – Increased body mass index – Elevated cortisol levels – Elevated blood pressure – Impaired cognitive function.

There is a link between blood sugar, memory and clear thought.

Increased numbers of people are estimated to be living with cognitive-related concerns and blood sugar problems are associated with cumlative memory and clear thinking loss.  One in eight adults 60 years or older self-reported concerns of increased confusion or memory loss over their previous years.

Recent research in Australia backs this up when researchers found that high-normal blood sugar levels are associated with increased risk of developing cognitive concerns later in life.  Those findings were supported by a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, showed that fasting blood sugars just above 95mg/dL  (which are considered in a ‘normal’ range ) are associated with a significant risk in cognitive issues later in life.

In other words cognitive decline can stem from excess sugar, as well as insufficient oxygen in the blood.  The correct balance of glucose and oxygen is a vital factor in good health.

This tip, a simple way to breath and an exercise that can be done on just minutes a day, create a 1-2 punch that improves nutrition and lifestyle.

I hope these quick, natural health secrets are of great value to you.  We offer many more in our Natural Health Report described below.

How to be Healthy the Old Way

Here is a new path to health secrets from the old ways.

cemetary
 Cemetery at our Blue Ridge Farm.

We live on farms for healthy reasons.

The headstones on a family cemetery at our Blue Ridge farm says it all…

The ages were 86, 91, 95, 100.

Then there is this!

The eldest passed at 115, born 1794 and leaving this world in 1909.

The secrets from their headstones are clear.

Some places are healthier than others…

Lifestyle affects longevity more than quadruple bypasses, pacemakers, chemo, radiation, modern medicine and drugs.

These people were dirt poor mountain farmers.

Health insurance, hospitals or regular checkups were not required!.  They lived with simplicity and strength.

Clean air, pure water and fresh food are important medicines!

They worked hard and kept life simple.

Longevity was their reward.

Modern medicine does not encourage wellness.

Ancient secrets can improve good health.  When it comes to health care, we may well be on our own.  The very people, institutions and establishments that  we should rely on may actually hurt rather than help our health.  Shamanic Wisdom accumulated over the millennia can fill the gap.

The way to escape the dangers of the high cost deteriorating health care system, is to not need it.  Declare health independence… and create natural good health.  There are dozens of simple, really low costs steps that can improve health… eating, purification, exercise, even the way we think and don’t think when we sleep.

Ancient shamanic wisdom from around the world can help us reduce our risks of poor health care and help us fight the ever rising costs.

For nearly 50 years my wife Merri and I have lived around the world and checked out just about every source on natural health care.  We have spent years living with natural health care insiders, and trying what they offered.

We took thousands of readers to Ecuador.  Many met the shamans there and we saw some health miracles take place (including a miracle with me!)

Since not everyone can go to Ecuador or travel the world, we have created three Shamanic Natural Health Care Reports that can help improve our natural health.  They are concise and to the point.  In 15 minutes the first report shows exactly how to start preparing for better health and more energy.

We do not have to depend on the health care and health insurance monopolies for better natural health… or cave into a healthcare system that can put us at risk and charge outrageous prices at the same time.

Our shamanic health reports provide information on how to use ancient health care systems to become more healthy –  self sufficient – providing our own good health.

The first report is “Sunski”, the Andean word for good eating, for maximum nutrition and purification.

We started the series with eating because so many of our readers have found the Andean shamanic nutrition helps them kick start their health with weight trimming.  Here is what a few readers have written to us:

These are typical notes I have received from readers.

*  “Hi Merri,  things have worked out well.  I am healthier than I have ever been, lost 32 pounds since arriving in Sept.  Bought a house and have finished the first level.  What an amazing place you have found”.  Thanks Phil – Ecuador

*  “We’ve decided to change our eating patterns since we came home because we so enjoyed our meals at the farm and how we felt physically.  Thanks so much. With love” JJ New – Chicago

*  “After eating all that delicious food I gained 3 lbs but it must be in muscle weight as my pants fit loosely!”  R Vickers – New Mexico

*  “The food was so delicious and I thought I ate a lot, but during the week I lost six pounds!”  WB Australia.

Good eating is the first step towards natural health. The first rule of good health is getting the correct nutrition.  The second step is purification of toxins and eating to avoid getting impurities in our body in the first place!

Sunski is a way to eat that strengthens and purifies as it stops adding toxicity from eating.  Yet Sunski is a delicious, healthy “self defined” cleansing process.  One lesson in Sunski shows how to correct a simple mistake that most of the Western population makes which increases the chances of adding and retaining weight by 84%.

“Sunski” combines lessons about healthy eating that we learned from years of working with ayurvedic health masters and then living with an Ecuador Taita Yatchak and his apprentices.

We lived, worked, farmed, cooked and ate with shamans and natural healers for years while learning “Sunski”.

The “Sunski” report has been 50 years and millions of miles of travel in the making.

We’ve invested thousands of hours into learning the skills of health self-reliance and resilience, identifying the best foods and combinations and sifted through loads of seeming contradictions to get to the facts about “do it yourself” longevity and natural health.

But that wasn’t enough – not when our good health is on the line.  So we consulted dozens of top professions who know a lot about natural health.  We spoke with holistic MDs chiropractors, Indian Vidyas, Andean Yatchaks, and other self-reliant natural health experts who live this way every day.

Don’t let the simplicity fool you…  years of research went into these reports.

And we only kept the best of the best: this system is complete – and FAST to learn – so you can get started immediately.

We all need to stay out of hospitals and reduce our exposure to modern medical risks and costs.

Why re-invent the wheel?  Especially when time is NOT on our side.  We’ve already done the hard work for you pulling together the information so you can create better natural, good health.

Imagine… never worrying about what we eat ever again and reducing the risks of hospitalization and health care’s outrageous costs.

A few of the life balancing nutritional tips include how to:

#1: Eat a balance of fat, carbohydrates and protein.

#2: Eat combinations of food for ideal digestion.

#3: Eat clean organic food prepared and served by happy, joyful people.

#4: Eat in good spirits at the right times of day.

#5: Chew in the correct way.

#6: Eat purifying and satisfying meals.

#7:  Adapt eating habits that are suited to individual specific makeup and lifestyle and why such individualized nutrition is better than any specific set plan.

This report includes a complete list of EZ to use recipes that will immediately improve your short term energy… and your long term natural health – so that you never have to guess what foods you need (or rely on the health care establishment  to tell you the truth).

Here are a few facts and health tools you gain:

*  The single biggest constraint you’ll face in your eating habits  – and how you can eliminate it by adding two simple recipes to your Sunski system.

*  How to calculate exactly how much food you need so you don’t over or under build your nutritional plan.

*  A simple solution for making sure that your food delivers what your body needs when you need it.

*  What components you can choose for yourself and how to avoid mass diets that seem to work for every one except… you.

*  The best long term solution for avoiding sugar.

*  Use sweet spices to compensate for stress.

*  Specific types of unique spices that give you the biggest energy bang for your buck.

*  Spices that cleanse and purify.

*  Three changes in your fruit consumption that is a critical component for long term purificatioN.

*  The best times to eat specific foods.

*  How to direct different foods to different parts of the body.

*  Three teas that add a resilience to your natural health system that are easy to make and enjoy at home at a low cost.

*  Why it is good (in fact almost a requirement) to sometimes eat junk food.

This report on nutrition also includes  23 special recipes of quick and easy but perfectly balanced meals and snacks.

Learn how nutritional secrets can help keep you out of the hospital.

These reports focus on how to have good natural health so you can remain independent and avoid costly medical care.  The second report looks at purification and detoxification.

The third report is about exercise… but not the type you would think.

Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles

For example this third report unveils one exercise that is a nutritional trick  that has nothing to do with what we eat.  The trick is to energize and coordinate the digestive system by exercising a set of key muscles as we eat.  The body has a number of key muscles that regulate breathing, digestion, circulation, elimination and muscular motion.  The report  reveals an exercise you can do at the dinner table to energize these muscles which in turn coordinate every other muscle and organ in the body.  Eating in this way for example (most of the modern world does not) energizes just one key muscle that regulates part of our ability to burn sugars and fat.

Part of the report focuses on how to have financial balance in investing and business so you can remain independent.

The report looks at oxygenation, coordination, purification, energy boosting, education, occupation and relaxation.

Oxygenation-Coordination:  Learn how to gain extra oxygen with the Llama Walk.

Purification: We look at Andean purification herbs and purifying teas.

Energy Boosting: Eating balanced, correctly prepared organic food and drinking herbal teas designed for body type and body imbalances.

Occupation: Physical labor, suited to your body type and condition range from gardening and animal care to path building and clearing the woods.

Relaxation: Learn how Meditation, L-Thianine and Baroque Music enhance thinking and relieve stress.

Body Types Made EZ:  Learn how they cause and influence nine body types and their imbalances.  Discover seven easy ways to determine your body type and how to keep it in balance.

Healthy Eating Made EZ:  Gain delicious, power packed weight reducing recipes from easy to obtain products from super market foods. Coddle Yourself Egg-High Protein Country Cottage Pie-Low Carb-Veggie Chile & Spaghetti- Weightless Bread-High Mountain Pure Protein Quinoa-Better Oatmeal of Steel- Several Soups for Super Strength-Berry Good Crunch Treat and Waist Less Apple Crumble are just a few.

Exercise for Strength and Better Health Made EZ:  Medicine is dose.  Too much exercise is as bad or worse as not enough. Learn how to let comfort be your exercise guide. Move with momentum-some exercises activate all muscles and provide the benefit of leverage, momentum and convenience so 12 minutes of exercise a day is enough.

Here is what others have said about this information:

Though I ate more than ever, my weight dropped and I lost two inches off my waist.” – S.H. Oregon

The life path altering effects from the weekend with you and Merri continue. Thank you again. I have begun to change my diet. Bless you!” – D.B. Connecticut

You are indeed a spiritual pioneer, blending disciplines to create tools and resources for success in this new land of opportunity.  Anyone who thinks this is just all about money is missing the real message: This is about life in its most profound implications.” – W.P. Australia

I want to thank you for the wonderful time. I travailed from California to hear you convey your knowledge in the way you do so well, and I wasn’t disappointed.  The amount of information in the sessions was almost overwhelming, but it’s exactly what I went to hear.” – B.R. California

The technical information I gathered was most not new to me, but I like to compliment you for putting it all in the right perspective and to make it very understandable to all.  What was at our opinion one of the most important gaining of these 3 days is the opening of the new world, this new circle of what you call ‘normal’ people! (I call us ‘not normal’ as a matter of respect to the majority.)  But as we know, all is relative and depends at the point of view of each, His spiritual mind and his opinion about the senses of our being.” – E.V. Florida

People who, among other things, are active and productive and creative and resourceful, whose word can be counted upon; People who realize that spirituality DOES NOT mean sitting in a cave contemplating your navel and weaving baskets, nor does it equate in the Western culture with living in abject poverty.  People who realize that abundance is not a dirty word. People who understand that we are here to ENGAGE life, not to submit to circumstances out of fear and ignorance and apathy; People who don’t just use the most current ‘buzz words’ so they can feel like they are part of the group, but who actually DO something… Builders. Thank you for showing up in my life.” – E.W. Nevada

Good health is the most important asset in stressful times.  Beyond the fact that modern health intervention (ie. hospital) can destroy one’s finances, being in good health brings the energy and balance required to make sound investing and business decisions.

There are many ways to improve health naturally.

Gain Amazing Health Benefits with the Hogberry

More than 100 studies have found that physical activity can lower cancer risk and even help cure cancer.  Fortunately researchers asked why and one answer became clear.  Body fat.

Studies showed that those who were most active have a 25% lower chance of developing cancer because reduced body fat is possible pathway to lowering cancer risk.  Time Magazine has some good information on the relationship between exercise and reducing cancer.  Have a look below if you want to research more deeply (1).

intermittent fastng

Graph showing benefits of intermittent fasting.

Fortunately there is a little known way to reduce body fat that does not even require exercise.  I’ll share more on this secret in a moment.

First, body fat and cancer?   Let’s ask why?

Part of the answer is toxicity.

Healthy bodies naturally and regularly remove water-soluble toxins from the body.  Our blood and kidneys flush them away.

Fat-soluble toxins such as metals, pesticides, preservatives, other pollutants are harder to flush out of the system.   Fat-soluble toxins must become water-soluble before the body can get rid of them.  The liver can do this conversion (bile emulsifies fat-souble toxins into water-soluble).  This process requires healthy digestive and detox pathways.  When they become imbalanced, fat-soluble toxins are stored in fat cells and brain cells instead.   These toxins can remain for decades and create health problems.

The fat stored toxins cause oxidation (free radical damage) and degeneration as well as mutation.  Toxins in the fatty tissue of the brain become neurotoxins that can cause cognitive problems and a host of mental and brain imbalances.

The way to avoid this storage of deadly toxicity is to keep stress down, while digestion and detoxification pathways remain good.

Burn Fat to Burn Toxins

When you burn fat not primarily for weight loss, (though you will lose weight) but for purification, you can turn on the body’s detox fuel.  Fat metabolism is the body’s natural form of energy.   Fat metabolism provides a more steady energy than glucose metabolism and flushes fat cells free of toxins.  As the toxicity drops, the nervous system has reduced stress and will naturally burn fat instead of sugar.

Intermittent fasting is one way to get the body to burn fat.  There is a way of eating that helps reduce weight, improve energy and purify the body as it returns to a state of natural health.

This is a simple easy way to improve and restore feeling good, but works best when combined with better nutrition, moderate exercise and a purification program that helps make sure that the body is not overwhelmed with too much purification at once.

This is why I have written a short report entitled “The FAST Way to Better Health” that features one special tea so an intermittent fasting routine becomes doable and enjoyable.

The Key is in the Hogberry

Intermittent fasting is guaranteed to work, if you have even reasonable nutrition, moderate physical activity and stick with it.  The problem is in the sticking.  When the brain is hooked on metabolizing sugar it can be very demanding.   When we try going an extended period without a sugar, the brain will have a hissy fit and demand that we eat or drink something sweet or starchy or alcoholic.

Sticking through a fast just does not work when the brain pulls out its bag of tricks, from sweet whispers (just one chocolate won’t hurt- but it will!)  all the way to chills sweats and dizziness.   Intermittent fasting, without help, can require enormous discipline that most of us cannot maintain long enough.

I know, I tried intermittent fasting several times and failed.  Then I accidentally stumbled across the secret of the Hogberry that not only stops hunger but more importantly speeds up the process of switching from sugar metabolism to fat metabolism AND assists in the purifying process.  Once I tried using this support for the pancreas (among other things),  intermittent fasting became satisfying and enjoyable.  I am passing 45 days in this routine, and the steady energy just gets better and better.  I am not minding the reduced weight and better fitting clothing either!

“The FAST Way to Better Health” explains how intermittent fasting is not real fasting.  One does not stop eating with an intermittent fast, not even for a day.  You learn why this is such a healthy way to lose weight and detoxify fat cells to reduce risks of cancer, heart disease diabetes and senility.
