Recent research reveals that a person develops Alzheimer’s disease in less than 2 minutes, especially in major countries like America. It is one of the fastest growing diseases in the world today.
Though it’s a very difficult disease to cure, fortunately it gives indications of its arrival. Thus enabling one to detect it and take the preventive methods. This disease robs one’s memory and eventually leads to many other disastrous things.
How does memory loss generally occur?
Stress is the main reason as it kills millions of brain cells and leads to memory loss by releasing a hormone called cortisol in the body.
In case the memory loss is delayed by 5 years, then one’s chances of getting Alzheimer’s reduce drastically and if delayed by 10 years then Alzheimer’s will not affect the person.
Dr. Walter Hess, a Swiss-born physiologist, won the Nobel Prize in medicine in 1949 for proving that there were actually two discrete centers in the brain: a stress center and an anti-stress, or relaxation center. When the stress center in your brain is activated, a response of pounding heart, faster breathing and high blood pressure occurs. When the relaxation centre is activated, all parameters get back to normal.
One of the best and scientifically proven ways to counter stress is through regularly practicing deep corrective breathing exercise. This lowers the dangerous stress hormone.
A well-known form of corrective breathing exercise is Nitaai Breathing which has been discovered and shared by seekers and explorers, originally being practiced by ancient meditators in order to sustain extremely difficult conditions and find inner joy and peace.
Benefits of Nitaai Breathing
Nitaai Breathing consists of deep inhalation and resonation of Nitaai sound very slowly whilst exhaling, in which “Ni” is short, “taa” is long and “i” is short again. The sigh of relief “Aah” that we resonate seems to have its origins in the sound Nitaai.
There have been many studies revealing the positive benefits of Nitaai Breathing. Studies on mindfulness-based stress reduction, have shown miraculous results of breathing exercise and meditation in chronic pain, and anxiety. This kind of healing eventually helps in prevention of memory loss.
A study conducted in 2009, published in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine Communication showed that people are able to activate a very important part of their brain called the posterior cingulate gyrus, or PCG through corrective breathing. This is important because the PCG is the first area of the brain to lose the capacity to function when a person gets Alzheimer’s disease.
If one can activate PCG daily with Nitaai Breathing, he or she won’t lose memory on aging. Isn’t it amazing that all the solutions for curing Alzheimer’s rest in Nitaai Breathing exercise. Practice this exercise regularly to experience the results at a faster pace.
