Abdominal Deep Breathing

Deep Abdominal Breathing


Are you fearful when you hear of family and friends with cancer? It is such a scary disease.

Today I want to share with you a technique that may protect you from this common disease.

Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Otto Warburg from the Institute of Cell Physiology says:

“Deep breathing techniques increase oxygen to the cells and are the most important factors in living a disease-free and energetic life. When cells get enough oxygen, cancer will not and cannot occur”


Deep abdominal breathing

This will relax you as well as improve the levels of oxygen getting to your brain and other organs.

Sit or stand and take 10 long, slow, deep breaths and allow your tummy to expand with an intake of breath and return to normal on the outward breath. Can you try this now?

Deep abdominal breathing benefits:
  • More oxygen into your brain
  • Improved lymphatic drainage
  • Relaxing
  • Some stress starts to drop away
  • Improved lung function

When I teach abdominal breathing in my meditation classes I get people to lie down. While this is not essential it can help to really relax you.

Here are some instructions:


Do you want to lower your stress and improve your health?

I recommend doing 10 rounds of abdominal breathing every morning and last thing at night. It will lower your stress levels and help you to get a restful night’s sleep.

We’d love to hear how you go and if you have any questions.
