Using Breathing Techniques For Self Healing – Headaches, Migraines, Tiredness

Good afternoon, dear friends πŸ˜€

I received this interesting email (quoted below the picture) on using the breathing through our respective nostrils to heal certain aspects of our lives. Β As always, I am interested in natural remedies for health and thought you may be interested in this form of healing. This technique is known in Yoga as “Pranayama.”

The connection that the breath has to our physical, emotional, and spiritual health has been well recognized by healing traditions of both East and West.  In Chinese, the character    (Qì), is used to represent both the vital energetic force which sustains all living beings as well as the breath itself. In both Chinese and Indian systems of self-healing, the breath and vital force are said to move together; they are inseparable.  Many techniques of manipulating the breath have been devised to support physical health, establish a balanced and well-adjusted emotional temperament, and assist with spiritual growth.

The picture below suggests that we open the four fingers while pressing on one nostril with our thumb. However, most yoga instrutors would teach us to curl our index and middle fingers into our palm, let our ring finger and pinkie relax, and have our thumb pressing close one nostril. Try both techniques to see which is more suitable for you…

breathing-techniques

Our noses have left and right nostrils. Are these nostrils having the same function for inhaling (breathe in) and exhaling (breathe out)?
Actually it’s not the same and we can feel the difference. Accordingly, the right side represents the sun and the left side represents the moon.
When having headache, try to close your right nostril and use your left nostril to do breathing for about 5 min. The headache will be gone.
If you feel too tired, do it the opposite way. Close your left nostril and breathe through your right nostril. After a while, you will feel refresh again.
Because the right side belongs to heat, so it gets hot easily. The left side gets cold easily.
Women breathe mainly with their left nostril, so they get calm down easily.
Men breathe mostly with their right nostril, so they get angry easily.!
When we wake up, do we notice which nostril breathes faster? Is it the left side or the right side?
If the left nostril breathes faster, you will feel very tired. Close your left nostril and use your right nostril for breathing and you will get refresh quickly.
You can teach your kids about it. The effect of breathing therapy is much better for adults.
I used to have painful headache. When consulted a doctor, he told me jokingly,” You will be all right if you get married!” The doctor did not bullshit me as he had his theory and supported with testimony.
During that time, I used to have headache every night and I was not able to study. I took medicine but I was not cured.
One night as I sat down to medidate, I closed my right nostril and breathed with my left nostril. In less than a week, it seemed that my headache problem had left me! I continued doing it for about a month and since then there was no recurrence of head! ache in me. This is my own experienc! e. I used to tell others who also suffer headache to try this method as it was effective for me. It also works for those who have tried as well. This is a natural therapy, unlike taking medicines for a long time may have side effect. So, why don’t you try it out?
Practice the correct ways of breathing (breathe in and breathe out) and your body will be in a very relaxing condition

    Wow! Very fascinating! I’ve been personally meditating at least once a day for over 5 years, but I never knew about the left/right nostril differentiation. Thanks for sharing! I will definitely have to work with it! Always learning new things from you! THANK YOU! (=

    Thank you for your information. However, I feel compelled to relate that you may want to consider toning down the color on your web page. As a migraineur (with a migraine at the time), this lime green was VERY difficult to deal with. It’s pretty, but it’s taking away from the calming experience I believe you wish to relate.

      Thank you for your feedback on my blog template. Unfortunately, I can’t do anything about the colour tone 😳 – it is a fixed template at WordPress here. That’s why I had my font in bold and dark colour so that it’s easier for visitors here to read. πŸ˜‰

      Hi there, dear Eric πŸ˜€

      Just use one side of our nostril only to breath in and out, while pressing the other nostril closed…while keeping the mouth closed. πŸ’‘

    Hi Choesf,
    While its good that you are trying to help people but the suggestion which you have given is incorrect.
    Infact, one needs to close the nostril which is open and breathe from the other nostril that is closed. This would in a matter of 5-7 mins give alot of relief in headache and in most cases – headache will be gone.

    With Best Regards,
