BITnews | June 2018

The second half of the year is nearly upon us again and winter has arrived, with a bit of a hesitant start.  I hope you all are dosing up extra vitamin C and zinc to help boost your immune system through the chiller weather. If you feel your body needs a bit more than a supplement boost, a lymphatic drainage therapy session will help to decongest and keep your immune system flowing at a more optimal level.

Managing Stress with Breathing

Managing Stress with Breathing

Buteyko Breathing is about re-establishing your innate breathing pattern (diaphragmatic and nose breathing); obtaining balanced levels of oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nitric oxide for circulation throughout your muscles, tissues, organs and cells. When this biochemical process is at its best so will be the detoxification process and all the other integrated systems of your body, including your autonomic nervous system response. Mouth breathing activates the accessory breathing muscles in your chest, shoulders and neck (scalene, sternocleidomastoid and trapezium). Your accessory breathing muscles should only be used during high intensity physical exercise when mouth breathing is required, e.g. when your autonomic...

mBraining: Neurons That Wire Together Fire Together

Our bodies are made up of trillions of different specialised cells. Our nervous system cells are called neurons, their role is to carry messages, via an electrochemical process, along the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and throughout the peripheral nervous system (ganglia). We have 3 types of neurons. Sensory neurons respond to touch, sound, light, smell and taste, sending signals to the spinal cord and brain. We have motor neurons that receive signals from the brain and spinal cord to cause muscle contraction and affect hormonal response. Connecting neurons together with other neurons are inter-neurons. In most recent...

Buteyko Breathing: Close Your Mouth!

Buteyko Breathing: Close Your Mouth!

Breathing is part of your autonomic system. You don’t need to instruct your body to breathe the way do for example with running. The quality of your breathing can change as a result of stress. Have you noticed how a newborn baby breathes? Typically, babies and infants breathe with a slight contraction of their diaphragm muscle, with very minimal chest movement, and a closed mouth. This innate pattern can change under the influence of stress; stress being the big umbrella word for mental, physical and emotional stress. All type stresses (work, surgery, relationships, phobias, exams, illnesses, etc.), can ramp up...
