This is a summary of an item on a US-based web site focusing on health tips for women.
This one suggests, with a doctor’s endorsement, how to develop breathing methods that
will – we hope! – make you more comfortable, and less stressed.
If you breath in through your nose and out through your month, you take in more oxygen and release more carbon dioxide;
Use stomach muscles to help you breath – expanding your diaphragm then letting it relax. Doing so is said to reduce the demand for oxygen. To teach this method, a quoted doctor has the patient lie on their back and work to lift a five-pound weight – or just a hand – to force stomach muscles to work harder. The patient is asked to inhale, trying to move the weight, then exhale through pursed lips. Be prepared to start with a lower-level weight, or less-pressing hand, if necessary.
Exhaling through pursed lips after a heavy inhale, with or without a weight, is said to offer some benefits – probably because muscle-strengthening is a combination process, involving the added pressure from the hard intake of breath and the controlled exhaling.
