Don’t forget to breathe !
Funny, I just realized lately, that I’m a very lousy breather. And I decided to do some research on a proper breathing.
No. I don’t have any respiratory problems yet, thanks God. I just don’t breathe deep enough. And sometimes, when I’m very busy, I forget to breathe at all.
We all know that we can lieve for weeks without food, days without water, but only minutes without breathing.
90% of our energy comes from oxygen, and only 10% from food! I didn’t know that. So we can skip a meal, but not a breath.
According to Ancient Chinese Medicine deep, proper breathing ( of clean air ) can cure almost any disease. ( ? )
Oxygen keeps our cells alive, kills bacteria, fungi, viruses, burns toxins in our bodies.
Shortly speaking, insufficient oxygen levels in our blood make us sick.
So, we breathe in air, use the oxygen in it and exhale carbon dioxide. Plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. What about carrying a small plant wherever we go? Maybe not. But I would place a plant in every room in my house.
So, we breathe in air, the red blood cells carry the oxygen to all cells in our body. Then the red blood cells carry carbon dioxide from all the cells to the lungs and exchange for new oxygen what we just breathed in, or whatever else we just breathed in
And here I have to confess: I was smoking cigarets for 40 years! I quit 5 years ago. Over 2 years before I got sick. And now, when I think about my smoking years I feel like a fool, or worse. Imagine, for 40 years my faithful, hardworking red blood cells were carrying some poison from my lungs to the rest of my body, instead life giving oxygen! Yak! It is amazing, what abuse our body can take and still function somehow. Anyway, I’m very happy that I was able to quit smoking. Better late than too late. And my Doctor told me that my lungs are fine, they healed.
So I’m reminding myself: “Keep Breathing!” And every time I think: “Breathe!” I’m sending a message to all my cells: “Hey you little ones, here is some more oxygen for you, keep going, I’m not done yet, I have to keep blogging, people are waiting…. And they are listening to my command, because they are my itsy bitsy soldiers and I’m their general.
And one more thing, I’m trying to breathe as little as possible in very polluted places , and take deeper breaths whenever I find myself surrounded by clean air. Is just a game. So don’t forget to breathe! Good health to all!.
