Dec 8th – Stress & Heart disease. Heart Disease is still the number one killer of men and women. Someone has a heart attack every 20 seconds in this country. Making a “lifestyle change” to “healthier living” will change your life. Reduce stress by not repressing stressor and trying Brahmari or “bee” Breathing Technique.


Lots of passion about heart disease and taking responsibility of your health!!

Did you know….

  • Every 34 seconds a  person in the United States dies from heart disease.
  • More than 2,500 Americans die from heart disease each day.
  • Every 20 seconds, a person in the United States has a heart attack.
  • At least 250,000 people die of heart attacks each year before they reach a hospital.
  • Almost 6 million hospitalizations each year (in the United States) are due to cardiovascular disease

Or that….

In 2010, heart disease will cost the United States $316.4 billion. This total includes the cost of health care services, medications, and lost productivity.


Brahmari Breathing Technique:

Inhale through nose with a slightly constricted glottis. (sounds like snoring)

Exhale slowly through slightly parted lips making a bee buzzing sound (sounds like humming)

**You may also plug your ears to intensify the vibration and sound in your head

Repeat 5-10 times (breaths)
