Learn Natural Breath Breathing Exercise For Breast Cancer Treatment

Yogic Breathing For Breast Cancer

By; Diana Ross E-RYT 500 Co-Founder of Breast Cancer Yoga.

Learning breath exercises will aide in the recovery process from breast cancer. First it is important to learn to breath correctly. Breathing correctly is done by taking in air deeply through the nostrils so that the lungs expand. Second, learn to use breath exercises so that they are used as treatments for specific situations, such as stress reduction or increase energy.

Natural Breath is used for stress management because it has the most calming effect of all the breaths. This breath reduces stress and tension by turning off the sympathetic “fight or flight” autonomic response.

Positions for breathing exercises during breast cancer therapy can be done in either a seated, laying down, or even in a standing position. However, you must be in a comfortable position so that the mind stays focused. Make a conscious decision to start with 5 to 10 minutes a day of deep breathing.

Benefits

  • Reduces stress and tension
  • Promotes diaphragmatic breathing
  • Supports expansion and relaxation of thoracic cavity

  2. EXHALE, gently draw naval back towards the backbone releasing air from lower lungs through the nostrils.
  3. Let there be a natural pause of transition before you inhale again.
  4. Continue to lengthen and balance natural breath for up to five minutes.
  5. Continue and then begin to lengthen exhale; moving the breath into a 1 to 2 ratio.

Make a conscious decision to start with 5 to 10 minutes a day of deep breathing. Along with daily breathing techniques we encourage an anti-cancer lifestyle. This is a lifestyle that includes a variety of exercise, organic foods, clean, pure water and air.

Sporting a cute, fun aromatherapy pendant necklace with the right essential oils may increase your overall well-being and recovery.

Aromatherapy is the use of Essential Oils to alter moods, improve health, healing and bolster the immune system. Scents from the Oils impact healing in a couple of ways: by absorbing into the blood stream and sending messages/scent receptors through the olfactory system to the brain – to empower the body’s emotional and physical responses to heal. Wearing an Aromatherapy pendant allows the Essential Oils to be directly inhaled -through the nose by means of the pendant’s cork diffuser. The pendant carries the complementary Essential Oil or blend, so when you need it most, it’s there with you.

Clinical trials (source: American Cancer Society) suggest certain essential oils may reduce stress, anxiety, pain, muscle tension, depression, nausea and anxiety. Research shows that some Oils can help prevent the loss of white blood cells during chemotherapy (source: Dr. Robert Tisserand). Common Essential Oils for Cancer recovery include lavender, chamomile, frankincense, orange, ravensara, sandalwood, thyme. Certain Oils should be avoided during chemo, as they may be too strong and actually cause nausea.
