Dr. Brad Lichtenstein, ND, BCB – Breathing Your Way to Health
How much attention are you giving to your breath as a means to promote your health? On average, you breathe about 24,000 times per day and breath retraining has been shown to efficiently and safely reduce blood pressure, improve sleep, regulate hormones, create mental alertness, help with focus, as well as decrease stress. No expertise is required, just your lungs!
In this experiential seminar, Dr. Brad will explore the biochemistry, physiology and psychology of breathing, the symptoms associated with dysfunctional breathing, and easy ways to restore balance through proper, diaphragmatic breathing. Not only is breath a simple way to connect mind – body – spirit, learning functional breathing helps balance the nervous system, thereby decreasing numerous symptoms.
Dr. Brad Lichtenstein believes in the power of breath to restore health and balance. As a naturopathic physician in private practice and a professor at Bastyr University for over two decades, Dr. Lichtenstein has helped people embody the lives they want to live. His approach integrates naturopathic medicine, mind-body medicine and biofeedback, depth & somatic psychology, Eastern contemplative practices, yoga and movement, bodywork and end-of-life care. He participated in a joint research study between the University of Washington and Bastyr University where he provided over 500 guided meditations to hospice patients. Dr. Lichtenstein received his doctorate of naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University and is board certified in biofeedback. His articles have appeared in several publications and journals and he speaks nationally on topics ranging from stress-reduction, mindfulness and health, mind-body approaches to healing trauma, and issues surrounding end-of-life.
