What if I told you, you could influence your bodies over 100,000 miles of blood vessels and arteries. Simply by breathing, you could enhance the amount of oxygen that is delivered to your cells, open up a congested nose, open up the lower airways, achieve a state of calmness from a stage of anxiety, improve sports performance, your breathing as a child will determine your facial growth and development for the rest of your life. How you breathe holds great potential to heal.
Today’s fast pace of lifestyle is stressing our bodies. The more stressed you are the more you will breathe. The more you breathe, the more breathless you become. Most people with “modern day” chronic health problems are habitually overbreathing. They breathe, too fast, too much, too shallow only using the upper chest and rarely if ever engage the diaphragm. They can be, but not always are dominant mouth breathers. Mouth breathing and upper chest breathing connect you to your sympathetic nervous system, your fight or flight. This is only a low grade fight or flight but will cause problems to your overall health.
The most harmful effect of overbreathing is a loss of carbon dioxide (CO2). This off gassing of too much CO2 causes a number of negative effects, including constriction of blood vessels and smooth muscles, and poor oxygen delivery. Constant hyperventilation and loss of CO2 leads to the development of disease or its further progression. The conditions your body acquires can be influenced by your genetic disposition and the severity of the disease is proportional to the degree of hyperventilation.
Things that contribute to over-breathing and are deeply rooted in our modern lifestyle are stress, unhealthy diet, lack of physical exercise, pollution, toxins, and overheated homes. The symptoms that come about include; anxiety, allergies, asthma, breathlessness, bronchitis, frequent colds and flu, fatigue, migraines, high blood pressure, stress, restless sleep, snoring and sleep apnea to name a few. Breathing has been linked to over 200 different diseases.
Restoration of normal breathing pattern will lead to the elimination of symptoms, restores your body to better health and also puts quality back into your life.

“Up until Womanition I truly believed (through past experiences) that women didn’t help women in business. It honestly blew me away and sometime still, I take a step back, give my head a shake and ask myself is this really happening? I am so grateful for all the amazing friends and mentors that have come into my life since I started with the group.” -Colette Benoit
