For some, breathing development is of the utmost importance, right now. For everyone else it is an indispensable aid to superior health, peak performance, and life extension. The breathing pattern to the right may be too fast or too slow for you but try breathing with it anyway. How does it make you feel?It is just a beginning introduction. Like a friendly handshake and eye contact leading to a deeper relationship with you and your breathing and many other incredible possibilities.
Did you know that lung volume reduction is the most destructive effect of aging. You can not eat for months, not drink water for weeks but if you go without oxygen for more than a few minutes you are dead. Oxygen is our primary source of energy by over one hundred thousand to one and the lungs are the primary oxygen provider. If you do nothing about it, 45% of your lungs are gone by age 70! As you age, cells in your lungs start to die off faster than you replace them – causing your lungs to shrink in size and ability to absorb oxygen. The smaller your lungs, the greater your chance of getting sick or dying – of almost ALL causes!YOU can make shrinking lungs – and shortened “healthspans” – a thing of the past!
Is the way you breathe making you sick, stealing your energy, hampering your productivity or shortening your life? We can’t use a clock or a scale or a ruler for things like being honest, persistent, kind, or tidy but with many other things in life if you can’t measure it you can’t manage it.

Did you know that findings resulting from a 5,200-person clinical study group observed over a 30-year span showed that pulmonary function measurement is an indicator of general health and vigor and literally the primary measure of potential life span? [External link for go straight to test]
Did you know that the average person reaches peak respiratory function and lung capacity in their mid 20’s? Then they begin to lose respiratory capacity: between 9 and 25% for every decade of life! So, unless you are doing something to maintain or improve your breathing capacity, it will decline, and with it, your general health, your life expectancy, and for that matter, your spirit too!
Did you know that given an optimal diet, the respiratory system should be responsible for eliminating 70% of your metabolic waste? The remainder should be eliminated through defecation 3%, urination 8%, and perspiration 19%. So, if you think that going to the bathroom everyday is important, or that working up a good sweat now and then is healthy, think again about the value of full free optimal breathing!
Did you know that most people have unhealthy breathing habits? They hold their breath or breathe high in the chest or in a shallow, irregular manner. These patterns have been unconsciously adopted, accidentally formed, or emotionally impressed. Certain “typical” breathing patterns actually trigger physiological and psychological stress and anxiety reactions!

Heart attacks, cancer, strokes, pneumonia, asthma, speech problems, and almost every disease known to mankind is worsened or improved by how well we breathe, the quality of our respiration.
According to several European medical doctors and numerous Taoist, Buddhist, Hindu, Hawaiian, and Native American healers and spiritual teachers, there are at least 200 conditions of life and diseases that relate directly to incorrect breathing. America’s own Dr. Andrew Weil states that “Improper breathing is a common cause of ill health.”
People who breathe optimally rarely or never get sick.
