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.
