Breathing exercises is a most valuable part of China’s medical legacy. Originally used for keeping fit only, it was later adopted also as a curative means and has proved its worth in both respects through long years of practice. The wonderful effects breathing or qigong , as many refer to, have yet to be fully explained in the light of modern science. Initial studies have amply shown how with correct ways of breathing helps to regulate the equilibrium in the higher nervous system and other systems in the human body, promote the normal functions of different organs, and build up inner strength.

All inducive to stronger resistance to diseases and to better health. So far as the nervous system is concerned, these breathing exercises that I will show you helps to regulate the equilibrium between excitation and inhibition. With respect to the respiratory system, breathing exercises (qigong) can improve the function of the lungs and increase vital capacity. While the average person normally breathes 17 or 18 times per minute, one who persists in the breathing practices can breathe 2 or 3 times a minute during exercise without feeling out of breath. Qigong aids blood circulation for the benefit of the heart. It also produces obvious effects on the digestive system. Among other things, they promote digestion by stimulating the gastrointestinal movements and the secretion of digestive juice.

That’s why those who regularly practice usually have a good appetite and seldom suffer from constipation. Breathing exercises(qigong) hastens metabolism in the human body, activates secretion in various glands and helps keep one’s bodyweight at a normal level and stabilize one’s frame of mind. Although breathing exercises can be used to keep fit and cure disease, it is no panacea. Good results can be achieved only when we combine it with other methods of physical training and medical treatment in a way that best suits the conditions of each individual.
