The Abdominal Breathing Exercise

1. Remove any belts or tight clothing.

2. Lie flat on a hard mattress or, even better, the floor. Have your knees flexed. Rest your head
on a pillow so you can watch your body’s movements.

3. Exhale through your mouth, emptying your lungs as far as possible.

4. Inhale slowly through your nose and allow your abdomen to protrude as if it were being filled
with air. The diaphragm lowers more into the abdominal cavity when the abdominal muscles
are relaxed. This makes for more efficient breathing.

5 Obviously, air always remains in your lungs above the diaphragm and does not penetrate the
abdomen, but let’s try a little imagery. Think of your lower torso and legs as being hollow. As
you breathe in think, of filling not only your lungs, but imagine the air going into the abdomen
and down your legs as far as your toes! Another way to imagine: think of pipes coming up
through the floor from a cool basement, up through your legs into your lungs. Draw deeply
from that basement. Imagery enables you to relax your breathing and helps your “computer”
use all the proper breathing muscles. Keep inhaling until you can’t get another bubble of air in.

Now exhale through your mouth with your lips pursed in a whistling position—this exerts a
slight back-pressure on your lungs and diaphragm. Tighten your abdominal muscles as you bend
at the waist and exhale all the air you can, ending with a cough. Rest a few seconds and repeat.
Do this exercise 15 times or more, if your comfortable doing it.

6. Again, repeat the preceding steps but this time try to “synchronize” in sequence your chest and
abdominal breathing. To do this, breath in until your abdomen “fills” about half-way. Stop for a
moment. Then, by using your abdominal muscles, push the air into the lower rib cage, forcing it
to expand (without exhaling any air from your mouth or nose). As this is done, the abdominal
muscles will retract slightly, as if some air had been exhaled.
Now breathe in a full breath, allowing your abdomen to expand to its full capacity. By retracting
the abdominal muscles, yet not allowing any air to escape, try to force the air in the lower chest
into the upper chest by forcibly retracting the abdominal muscles. Try to make this action
smooth the lower respiratory area and relaxing the upper lung cage as much as possible. Fill all
areas to capacity and then exhale through your mouth and nose. Repeat this exercise ten
times. Both exercises should be done morning and evening for at least for a week. Rest a few
days and then repeat another week.

You will notice a difference in a matter of weeks. These exercises help increase the amount of
air you inhaled with each breath and, by penetrating the subconscious, they promote deeper
conscious breathing with no effort on your part.

blood back to the heart.

On the left is the normal man breathing, thus helping to get the blood back to his heart. But on the
right side, we have a person who is very much overweight. The tremendous amount of fat pulls the
muscle away so that it cannot work properly in order to get the blood back to the heart.

EMOTIONS AND BREATHING

Just about everyone comes into the world breathing properly. So what goes wrong? Usually the
inability to breath correctly is rooted deep in one‟s emotional makeup.
The problem starts in early childhood with a sharp command, “Stop crying!” In response, the child
stops crying by holding his breath. He suppresses anger by drawing back his shoulders and constrict-
ing the chest and throat muscles in order to prevent screaming.
Suppression of any feeling or emotion results in muscle tension that limits respiration. As we be-
come adults and face more intense stress, the repression increases. We submerge our feelings instead
of expressing them. Those restricts our breathing each time it happens. Eventually we have the habit
of poor breathing.
Thus, breathing may be a reflection of mental health. In many emotional disorders, proper breath-
ing is a key that can bring healing and release.
Psychiatrist Alexander Lowen has studied the emotional roadblocks we build against proper breath-
ing. His studies on neurotic and schizoid personalities demonstrate a distinct relationship between the
way a person breathes and his or her emotional disorder.
The schizoid personality tends to breathe with the upper chest while the neurotic uses superficial
diaphragmatic breathing. Dr. Lower found that establishing a proper breathing pattern helped these
people regain normal life again.
Fortunately, most of us are neither neurotic nor schizoid, but that does not exclude the possibility of
ill effects from improper breathing. By being in good physical and mental health we can reap the bene-
fits of improved breathing sooner.
Improving one‟s breathing is a relatively easy procedure, but the blueprint must be followed closely
and faithfully. It will take concentration, diligence, and perseverance to reverse the patterns estab-
lished over many years. But the reward is worth the effort.

DEEP BREATHING HELPS

“When you breath deeply—when you breathe from your diaphragm—it helps the flow of lymph. That
may explain why female secretaries have a higher rate of heart disease than female executives. It„s al-
most impossible to take deep breaths while you‟re sitting down all day.

“In addition, there are certain conditions that can slow the flow of lymph. We have noticed that cancer
sets in about one year after a person has a deep depression or a severe stress. The reason for that may
have to do with a lessened lymphatic flow.

“Hans Selye has shown that stress causes atrophy of the lymphatics,” Dr. Lemole points out.
“Furthermore, stress also causes the body to produce the hormones ACTH, pituitrin and adrenaline and
those , in turn can cause spasms of the lymphatics, leading to lymphstasis. On the other hand, when
you are not feeling stressed, when you are feeling good, your body will produce endorphins, which
have the opposite effect of ACTH.

The Importance of Air


COUNCILS ON HEALTH
If pure air is ever necessary, it is when any part of the system, as the lungs or stomach, is diseased.”
p. 53

Fresh air will prove far more beneficial to sick persons than medicine, and is far more essential t
them than their food. p. 55

the sickroom, if possible, should have a draft of air through it, day and night. The draft should not
come directly upon the invalid. p. 56

In order to have good blood, we must breath well. Full, deep inspirations of pure air which fill the
lungs with oxygen, purify the blood. A good respiration soothes the nerves, it stimulates the appe-
tite and renders digestion more perfect; and it induces sound refreshing sleep.” p. 59
We are more dependent upon the air we breathe than upon the food we eat. p. 173
It is essential to health that the chest have room to expand to its fullest extent, in order that the
lungs may be enabled to take full inspiration. When the lungs are restricted, the quantity of oxygen,
received into them is lessoned. The blood is not properly vitalize, and waste, poisonous matter
which should be thrown off through the lungs, is retained. P. 92

MEDICAL MINISTRY

Students should be taught how to breathe, how to read and speak so that the strain will not come
on the throat and lungs, but on the abdominal muscles. P. 78

In the Bible
the book of Isaiah
says that the earth will
grow old and worn out
like a garment.

“Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous; nevertheless afterward it
yieldeth the peacable fruit of righteousness.” (Heb. 12:11)

The late summer showers are falling. The poet stands by the window, watching them. They are beat-
ing and buffeting the earth with their fierce downpour. But the poet sees in his imaginings more than
the showers which are falling before his eyes. He see myriads of lovely flowers which shall soon be
breaking forth from the watered earth, filling it with matchless beauty and fragrance. And so he sings:
It isn‟t raining rain for me, it‟s raining daffodils;
In every dimpling drop I see wild flowers upon the hills.
A cloud of gray engulfs the day, arid overwhelms the town;
It isn‟t raining rain for me; it‟s raining roses down.
Perchance some one of God‟s chastened children is even now saying: O God, it is raining hard for me
tonight. Testings are raining upon me which seem beyond my power to endure. Disappointments are
raining fast, to the utter defeat of all my chosen plans. Bereavements are raining into my life which
are making my shrinking heart quiver in its intensity of suffering. The rain of affliction is surely beat-
ing down upon my soul these days.” Withal, friend, you are mistaken. It isn‟t raining for you. It‟s
raining blessing. For if you will but believe your Father‟s word, under that beating rain are springing
up spiritual flowers of such fragrance and beauty as never before grew in that storm-less, unchastened
life of yours. You indeed see the rain. But, do you see, also, the flowers? It isn‟t raining afflictions
for you. It is raining tenderness, love, compassion.; patience and a thousand other flowers and fruits
of the blessed Spirit which are bringing into your life such a spiritual enrichment as all the fullness of
worldly prosperity and ease was never able to beget in your innermost soul.: (Selected from
McConkey‟s Chastening.)

THE RECOVERY OF MRS. ROGERS


Mrs. Rogers lay sick in bed, Bottles and blisters, powders, and pills, All the people have poohed and slurred,
Bandaged and blistered from foot to head, Catnip, boneset, syrups and squills; All the neighbors have had their word;
Blistered and bandaged from head to toe, Drugs and medicines, high and low, ‘Twere better to perish, some of them say,
Mrs. Rogers lay very low. I threw them as far as I could throw. Than be cured in such an irregular way!

Bottle and saucer, spoon and cup, What are you doing? A visitor cried. LIGHT and WATER, AIR and REST,
On the table stood bravely up- Frightening death, I coolly replied. It’s the treatment that’s the best,
Physics of high and low degree; Have you gone crazy? Another one said, With SIMPLE FOOD and TRUST IN GOD,
Calomel, catnip, boneset tea; Just as a bottle flew past his head. You too the path of health can trod.
Everything a body could bear, Then all of them left, ‘twas for the best,
Excepting LIGHT and WATER and AIR. And God gave Mrs. Rogers REST.

I opened the blinds; the day was right, Deacon Rogers said to me later,
And God gave Mrs. Rogers LIGHT. Wife’s getting healthy, feeling better,
I went to the spring, it was no bother, I really think she’ll worry through:
And God gave Mrs. Rogers WATER. Scolds me now as she used to do.
I opened the window; the day was fair,
And God gave Mrs. Rogers AIR.
