NaranThere is less oxygen in the world we live in…
The natural process of life…Trees release oxygen by taking in carbon dioxide. We release carbon dioxide and take in oxygen. It’s the natural process of life. Every living thing – plants and trees, breathes rhythmically. Even the seasons are rhythmic in nature too. Can you say that tomorrow the sun won't be there and Moon will be lost in space?
Being in tune with Nature…None of us are in tune with nature. To be so, we should change our breathing pattern to 10 to 12 breaths every minute. Normally, our intake is 20 to 26 breaths per minute. So we need to reduce that. Also we have to condition our breath. This is done by doing Pranayama with the breathing pattern 4:1:5:2. Additionally, we have to breathe from the throat. This will make us to take longer breaths. This will make breathing easier and it will not put stress on the nose either.
We are living in the world where there is less oxygenWe are living in the atmosphere where there is lack of oxygen. It should contain20% of oxygen. But it doesn’t. Less the oxygen around us, then less will be our health. We are using tap water –which has more chlorine that was used to treat the water. Chlorine is not good for the heart. Chlorine hogs the arteries and the cholesterol in our system attaches itself to chlorine. Mineral water is treated with chlorine too –and thus it has less oxygen. Oxygenated or ionized water will be good. If it contains more negative ions then it will have more oxygen. Even once in your lifetime, if you had taken an anti-biotic, then it will reduce oxygen in your system. Fast foods contain less oxygen. Pasteurized milk has no oxygen. Bottled and canned or tetra packs, packed for drinks, has less oxygen. Microwave oven and non-stick pan cooked foods have less oxygen. When there is less sound there will be more oxygen. That’s why we have to be silent. But how is this possible in this noise polluted world? An AC room has less oxygen and thus less Prana.
Two types of nervous systems…Body is functioning with the help of an autonomous system. We have Para-sympathetic and Sympathetic nervous systems. Para-sympathetic system takes over anything automatically. For example, Heart, Stomach (used for digestion), and lungs are operated by Para-sympathetic nervous system without any intervention from our side. Digestion of food doesn’t wait for our signal to operate. We have to thank god for such a precious ability of our body. Parasympathetic nervous system is connected to every cell of the body through the spinal cord. The Sympathetic nervous system closes the cells as a reaction when we are under stress. Why? When we are in stress, a signal is sent to cells with a flight or fight message. The cells then will either go into a fighting mode or protection/growth mode. Cells get closed. From then they don't receive any oxygen.
