Clonda continues her remarkable ascent to the top of the Breathing, Mindset and Spiritual Coach health sector. Many individuals believe that their breathing is fine simply because they are alive. This, however, is a misconception. It is important to recognize that there might be an underlying issue with one’s breathing, particularly if you are predominantly using the mouth and chest muscles rather than the nose and diaphragm. By adopting proper breathing techniques, everyone can significantly improve their health.

Mouth Breathing – Dysfunctional Breathing:

  • Mouth breathing is the catalyst for the diaphragm to be become lazy in the process of and for breathing.
  • Uses more energy leading to tiredness and coping mechanisms will wear down.
  • One’s nose becomes blocked, making it even harder to nose breathe.
  • Feels like you are always stressed and short of breath.
  • One is fatigued or tired must of the time.
  • Can cause overbite and incorrect jaw formation in children.
  • Keeps the fight or flight response on.

Science tells us correct breathing is vital for the normal functioning of the body and it’s the one involuntary function of the body can be controlled. On average a person takes in roughly 22,000 breaths per day.

Nose Breathing – Functional Breathing:

  • Nose breathing is the correct way to bring air into the lungs.
  • Acts as a filtration system for air coming into the lungs, warms, humidifies, cleans and sterilizes the air going into the lungs.
  • Helps strengthen the immune system and immunity.
  • Helps reduce blood pressure and heart rate.
  • Helps to release-reduce stress and relax one’s nervous system, vital is stress management.
  • Helps the quality of sleep.

Correct oxygenation takes place with a min 20% more oxygen intake than mouth breathing. Helps with cognitive function, focus and being in the present moment.

Recently, researchers at Stanford University concluded:

“Breathing fuels the brain, and every other part of the body. And so by extension, it has a direct and profound impact on the mind and our basic psychological experience. We’re learning there’s more to the story than simply that we breathe; in terms of psychological effects, how we breathe is just as important. Notably, the yoga, religious and philosophical traditions always include some form of controlled, intentional breathing practices as part of meditation, incantations, and prayer.

The pattern and depth of breathing alter the physiological impact on oxygenation level, heart rate, ventilation, and blood pressure. These come with health implications. Patients with hypertension will see a decrease in blood pressure from slow breathing compared with high-frequency breathing counts. For cognition, attention, and learning, we’ve begun to understand there are differences between nasal breathing and mouth breathing. Nasal breathing alters activation patterns in the brain’s amygdala and hippocampus, while mouth breathing does not. It’s clear that the way in which we breathe matters a great deal.” Stanford study

During a recent interview, Alexia made these comments, “I found the Buteyko Breathing Method in1994. I was steroid dependent and nebulising every hour, the asthma was totally out of control. Buteyko Breathing changed my life! In 2009 I came across a ThetaHealing®, I was facing many challenges in my career and after two failed hip replacements and a diagnosis of PTSD, my physical and mental health were severely impacted.”

She went on to say, “I was just barely functioning. Understanding the connection of and between the Mind, Body, Emotions and Spirit is key to improving one’s life. Knowing and listening to your body and how it works and learning how you can facilitate change within yourself with these powerful techniques will arm you with the appropriate resources to help yourself to have the life you desire. I am passionate and committed in helping you help yourself to be the best you can be in every area of your life.”

Breathing techniques and functional breathing are increasingly acknowledged as essential for enhancing performance among athletes and active individuals. By reprogramming their mindset and breathing patterns, both Olympians and everyday people have achieved notable improvements in their performance and results, ultimately leading to better health.

A growth and open mindset allows a person to open their mind to change their breathing, emotions and beliefs that hold them in the patterns that keep them stuck in old habits which minimises their growth and performance.
