Breathe & Detox Your Way to Health
What does it mean to breathe and detox? With breathing, water, exercise, sunshine and nourishment being the staple ingredients for vitality and health, how is it that breathing alone can help your body cleanse itself?
Because as little as it known, it is your breath… your respiratory system, that is the biggest mover of metabolic waste from your body. And the biggest mover of toxins above all other channels of excretion by a long shot.
You see your respiratory system moves more metabolic waste out of your body than your perspiration, urination and defecation does combined! In fact it’s estimated your respiratory system is responsible for the elimination of more than 70% of toxins and impurities that are both absorbed and created within your body as an every day part of living.
And yes for those you are familiar with anatomical principles, the action of perspiration is part of the respiratory system through the association of the skin being a breathing organ.
Not so much the oxygen aspect, but because the skin absorbs nutrients in a similar way the lungs absorb oxygen. Nevertheless, the process breathing and the process of perspiring are two different functions.

Your Breath – the Best Way To Detox
With little subject matter being taught in schools, why the Art of Breathing isn’t the major focus with regard to health-care is a mystery. Thank goodness the breathing process is different to that of the digestive process with the breathing processes of your body being controlled by two sets of nerves.

- The other set of nerves belongs to the voluntary nervous system, the system that puts you into the drivers seat of your body so to speak.
It is the practice of voluntary/conscious breathing that offers so many good tidings for each and everyone of us it could well be considered ridiculously bountiful.
