Why is Deep Breathing The Garbage Collection Of Our Body?
Do you know that you're breathing system is the garbage collection of your body?
Well, to believe that you need to understand a little bit more about your breathing system.
So let's have a look at this. So this is one lung wing.
This is the other one. And here we go.
This is where the air Flows In and Out out.
The air flowing in. The air flowing out.
Have you ever seen something like that before?
Around your lungs, there is your rib cage.
And inside of the rib cage, there is your heart.
When we breathe, the air Flows In and Out.
And we have different kinds of breathing.
So the first kind of breathing is the breathing we do most often.
And that's shallow breathing.
When we're sitting on the computer, at the desk all day.
We breathe like that:
Only our chest is moving.
So and the lungs are extending and decreasing within the ribcage.
The ribcage surrounds the lungs,
and so, there is not much space to breathe.
So shallow breathing is the most breathing we do.
But there is also diaphragmatic breathing.
The diaphragm is a muscle, that is located down here.
And if you put some tension in it, it becomes straight and it pulls down.
And so, the pressure inside the lungs decreases.
And due to the vacuum, the air flows in.
And at the same time, our belly comes out.
It looks like this.
So, if you put tension in your diaphragm muscle the pressure of the air in the lungs decreases.
And it pushes your stomach out.
And at that time, the pressure inside of your stomach increases.
So now, we need to understand something more about our bodies.
We have five to six liters of blood.
But 12 to 15 liters of lymph fluid.
Effectiveness is a principle of nature!
How essential blood is for our body,
Everybody knows that.
But why put God two and a half times more lymph fluid
in our body than blood?
Well, she had so much water.
She didn't know where to store it.
So, she put it as lymph fluid in our bodies.
She obviously made a mistake!
No, let's think about it,
to understand the function of the lymph fluid a bit better.
Let's talk first about what blood does:
The blood is transporting the oxygen
from the lungs to the organs.
And supplying the cells with O2, with oxygen.
And there is the heart near to your lung,
which pumps the blood around.
And at the same time, the blood collects CO2 carbon dioxide
and brings it back to the lung.
Where you can breathe it out.
So, this is a supply chain,
as a home delivery service.
Which supplies you with food and drinks
and collects the empty containers and the empty bottles.
So this is what our blood does in simple.
But what does the lymph fluid do?
As I told you before:
It's the garbage collection of our bodies.
So, for the blood 5-liter of blood,
we have a big muscle, our heart, to pump it around.
But there is obviously no muscle for the lymph fluid.
So what happens, if we do deep breathing?
When the pressure in our belly increases,
it squeezes out the fluid the lymph fluid of our belly.
And pushes it into the arms, the legs, the head.
And when we release the diaphragm muscle the air flows out.
And the lymph fluid flows back
out of your arms, out of your legs, and out of your head.
So, deep breathing makes our lymph fluid flow around:
But now, it doesn't have channels like the veins for the blood.
It just is everywhere in our body,
in the tissues, the organs, and muscles, and everywhere.
So it flows much less organized.
And now we understood,
that this is the pump for the lymph fluid.
But it only pushes it a little bit forward and a little bit backward.
And if this is responsible for the garbage collection,
you may imagine,
that the deeper you breathe the more it goes forward.
and it goes backward.
So the amplitude becomes higher.
And the slower you breathe the further it flows.
Because it has more time.
So the exchange of lymph fluid will become better.
And the lymph fluid is carrying everything which is not urgent in time as oxygen.
If you don't have oxygen,
you'd gonna die in half an hour or so.
It's just it's a question of minutes.
If the garbage collection doesn't work,
well you can survive with that for quite a while.
Because your body has other strategies,
how to store it, for example in the cells.
But that decreases the lifespan of a cell if there is more toxin in the cells.
So, our bodies get exchanged every one and a half years, almost completely.
All cells get renewed.
The old ones die, the new ones come and take their place.
And if the old material doesn't get carried out of the body
and washed out through the urine, it remains in the body.
And it poisons your body over time.
And almost all civilization illnesses are based on that,
or it's mostly based on this poster.
Only doing very little physical exercise.
So, breathwork helps you to get rid of the dirt in your body
and to do the garbage collection.
That's why we gonna take care in the next few days for some breathwork.
And see: Vitality means
mental and physical health and fitness.
And the mental part, of cause,
is more essential than the physical part.
And health is more essential than fitness.
So, let's take care of the health,
and we take care of the mental part.
Which we already do with our meditations.
And now on the physical part of our body,
we work with the biggest leverage,
which is airflow, oxygen supply, and lymph flow.
And also water ...
You may imagine the better hydrated your body is,
an easier time got your heart, to pump the blood around,
because it's more fluid and also the same thing is true for the lymph fluid.
The more water is in your body, the better you're hydrated,
the better is the lymph fluid flows.
Which is initiated by deep breathing.
So, let's do some deep breathing exercises in the next week,
additionally to the mental health care with your meditations.
