Oxygen and Weight Loss

Oxygen and Weight Loss

Miki Ryosuke says that breathing can keep you skinny.  In an article published in the Daily Mail, The former Japanese actor claims to have lost nearly thirty pounds in 7 weeks by practicing what he calls the “Long Breath Diet”, a system whereby practitioners inhale slowly for three seconds and exhale vigorously for seven seconds.  Mr. Ryosuke claims that by practicing his Long Breath technique for two to five minutes a day, overweight and obese patients will notice rapid weight loss benefits.

Even if Ryosuke claims are exaggerated,  it is not an overblown assertion that there is an important relationship between fat cells and oxygen. A relationship that may play a role in the development of obesity and the difficulty of weight loss.

Reducing Stress and Weight with Posture

Stress, Posture and Weight

In an article that was published in October of 2010 in the journal “Psychological Science”, collaborating researchers from Harvard and Columbia Universities found that humans and animals can up-regulate (i.e. stimulate) the production of healing chemicals by intentionally assuming open, wide, spread out expansive positions and postures. For instance, holding the shoulder up and widening the chest muscles for as little as two minutes.  In that short period of time, according to the researchers, you can drop your stress hormone levels and increase testosterone and other anabolic building hormones. All this can be done just by holding the body in certain positions. 

When was the last time you went to a doctor’s office for your arthritis or osteoporosis or autoimmune or degenerative disease and had him tell you to keep your shoulder wide and open up your chest?  Probably never, but strategies like these that can not only improve our ability to heal in a completely non-toxic fashion, but even more importantly, they can keep us from having to interact with an intrusive and ineffective medical model that has presided over the most dramatic increase in degenerative disease in the history of man.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture

Pictures this:  a Chinese peasant is having a baby.  She’s screaming and writhing with the pain all mothers have known since the beginning of time.  A medical man comes into her room, sticks a couple of needles in a few strategic spots in her body and just like that her previously unbearable agony begins to lighten up.  Within a few minutes her misery is but a memory.

Or how about this: my brother, addicted to his Camel Lights, tries without success, to quit smoking.  Over the course of 15 years and countless attempts to kick the habit, he’s still hooked.  Yet an alternative health care professional sticks a few needles in his ear and just like the addiction monkey is off his back he hasn’t touched a cigarette in over two decades.

Another woman with chronic excruciating pain following a car accident can’t recall the last time she’s had a full night’s sleep.  To make matters worse the pain and sleeplessness have caused a generalized sense of anxiety and depression.  Within several months of weekly acupuncture treatments, she feels less discomfort in her extremities.  Her right side becomes much more flexible and her range of motion is dramatically improved. And, on top of that her anxiety lessens and her depression is gone.  Her friends say she looks healthier and she seems like an all-around less nervous person.
