Dr Goldin's Self-Regulating Techniques for a Stressful Time
During this time of isolation, we are confined to our homes...there is no 'normal'. This is adding stress to our relationships and our bodies which in turn negatively affects our body's immune system's ability to fight off this virus.
In order to help, each week I will post a new video on this page to demonstrate techniques you can use to reduce streess and to allow your immune system to do what it is designed to do.
These video demonstrations are excerpted from my online. self-study course called Freedom To Heal.
The recordings of my most recent webinars are also now available:
1. Supporting Your Immunity During These Challenging Times, April 3rd
Technique 3: Breath of Tranquility
This breathing technique is best used for when you want calming and relaxing. Using this technique can slow down your heart rate, calm anxiety and fears, and can even out moods and irritability. Stimulate your rest and repair cycles, increase mental clarity and reduce fight, flight, and freeze responses.
Technique 2: Alternate Nose Breathing
This technique helps to balance and integrate the 2 hemispheres of your brain to help you cope with anxiety, depression and other negative feelings and emotions.
Technique 1: Peaceful Breath
Regulating the breath stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system and vagal nerve which helps support deep relaxation. Deep relaxation supports rest, lowers cortisol levels and helps cellular repair. Regular use of these exercises will help lower stress and inflammation and support clarity of mind, wellness and mood regulation.
This video highlights the technique called the Breath of Fire.
