BREATHING TO HEAL: The Science of Healthy Respiration

Breathing to Heal by Case AdamsDESCRIPTION:

It would be nice to breathe optimally without thinking about it. Unfortunately, most of us have developed numerous bad breathing habits, which serve to deliver sub-optimal health. “Breathing To Heal” teaches us how to breathe optimally and efficiently. It also teaches us the physiology of breathing, various techniques for clearing our sinuses and airways, herbs that increase lung health, how to breathe around polluted environments, and how to breathe with different postures, positions and frames of mind. Techniques of pranayama, tai chi, hatha yoga and qigong are also discussed, along with breath control and the Buteyko technique. Allergens and filtration systems are also reviewed. This is a complete and practical book on becoming a better breather every day. 364 Pages. Copyright 2014.

Case Adams is a California Naturopath with a PhD in Natural Health Sciences, and Board Certified Alternative Medicine Practitioner. He has authored 26 books on natural healing strategies. “My journey into writing about alternative medicine began about 9:30 one evening after I finished with a patient at the clinic I practiced at over a decade ago. I had just spent the last two hours explaining how diet, sleep and other lifestyle choices create health problems and how changes in these, along with certain herbal medicines and other natural strategies can radically yet safely turn ones health around. As I drove home that night, I realized I needed to get this knowledge out to more people. So I began writing about health with a mission to reach those who desperately need this information. The strategies in my books and articles are backed by scientific evidence along with wisdom handed down through traditional medicines for thousands of years.” Case connects with the elements by surfing, hiking, biking, and being a beach bum.
