Just BREATH!!!

I am always telling my patients and my clients they need to breath. It seems that this world is going faster and faster by the minute and we end up holding our breaths because it is moving too fast for us to catch up. The problem with that is it triggers a stress reaction in your body and you immediately go into a fight or flight mode. What this means for you is that your immune system cannot fully activate. If you body is in the mode of danger and you need to fight it or run away from it or you will not survive to see the next minute then it really does not matter if there are some bacteria in your body or some tissues that need repaired. Your bodyto do list is not going to worry about those trivial things. I know it seems crazy but keep in mind this is a VERY primal reaction and that is what kept the human species alive back in the caveman days. It was very important back then it just outlived its usefulness. Now we consciously have to override it and the best way to do that is to take full deep breaths. Use your lungs from the very bottom to the very top.

About Lisa Marie Keller

Lisa Marie Keller wants to live in a world where it is commonplace to dance to the music of life. As a pain management specialist, she's been working as a Physical Therapist resolving the pain of her patients for a variety of conditions including but not limited to chronic back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, knee pain foot pain and even headaches for over thirteen years. Following seven years of traditional schooling and more years than she would like to remember at the School of Hard Knocks resolving her own pain and body dysfunctions she has become the Queen of Conquering Pain. When she’s not pondering on how to solve the next health dilemma, you can find her dancing around in her living room to music that is played much too loud, making snobby comments about amazing wine and fantasizing about where she is going to travel to next. Her first book — Free My Back — hit the Amazon Marketplace in August 2014. You can get a free e-book version of Free My Back by registering at www.freemyback.com
