Breathe deep


Take time out to breathe / New Jersey / Jan. 2008

Breathe deep. OK. Breathe deep again. Breathe in. Breathe out. Studies show that breath-holding disturbs the body's balance of oxygen, CO2, and Nitric Oxide. Tension and stress can cause us to hold our breath without being aware of it thereby disturbing the biochemistry of the body and contributing to stress-related diseases. Breathe deep again.

“The immune system uses nitric oxide in fighting viral, bacterial and parasitic infections, and tumors. Nitric oxide transmits messages between nerve cells and is associated with the processes of learning, memory, sleeping, feeling pain, and, probably, depression.”
