Breathing techniques for gut health

Controlled breathing can be one of the most potent tools for managing symptoms, creating and sustaining wellness. Breathing techniques provide an easy, drug free option to reduce symptoms of gut disorders and improve digestion.

Controlled breathing, often called breathwork, is also very effective for pain management and helps with many other maladies, like stress, anxiety, insomnia, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, attention deficit disorder and high blood pressure, to name a few.


Breathwork helps boost the immune system, increase alertness, and improve vitality. Studies demonstrate that breathwork can lower levels of three cytokines that are associated with inflammation and stress. Consciously changing our breath patterns sends a signal to the brain to adjust the nervous system and slow heart rate and digestion.

“Breathing is massively practical, It’s meditation for people who can’t meditate.”- Belisa Vranich, a psychologist and author of the book “Breathe”
