Using straightforward jargon-free language, BREATHE presents Dr. Belisa s unique approach to breathing exercises. It is a book for people who are looking to address their fatigue, sleeping problems, anxiety, and stress all of which are worsened by shallow, erratic inefficient breaths and, consequently, suboptimal oxygenation of the body and brain at a cellular level. In addition, the exercises and theory taught in BREATHE will result in better endurance in sports. You ll be taking care of yourself from the inside out. Dr. Belisa s method teaches you to relearn or remember how you used to breathe rather than teach you a skill requiring the attention and motivation that it takes to acquire a new habit. Dr. Belisa asks you put aside ten minutes a day for fourteen days, working from your baseline, and pushing yourself just as you would in a gym or in physical therapy. The result: more energy, less pain, lower cortisol (and control of belly fat), less GI problems, and a better immune system. The explosion of technology, longer hours spent seated at a desk or car, and high levels of daily stress everyone accepts as normal have had a tremendous effect on the way people breathe. This in turn has created or exacerbated medical problems such as high blood pressure, irritable bowel, and insomnia. BREATHE is a primer that covers all the critical core issues related to oxygen, your lungs, and your breathing patterns. It teaches you how to breathe in an anatomically congruous way that maximizes inhales and exhales, lung expansion, and ribcage flexibility. Finally, BREATHE is perfect for someone wanting to explore concepts of mindfulness and meditation. If you are looking to improve such brain functions as focusing and problem solving, or if you just want to relax and rejuvenate by quickly ridding yourself of oxidative stress of the day, this book is for you.

This book combines life-changing information in an easy to read way. The writing and descriptions are so fluid. If you want to read the footnotes you can -- I am the type who loves the brainy information they contained, but not everyone does. You finish it wondering why something that is so important and so effectively changes our health for the better has not been focused on in this way, until now. In the 14 days I committed to BREATHE, my energy, concentration and overall mood changed significantly. --Anthony Phillps
No nonsense, how-to-feel-better advice that immediately gave me a renewed sense of how I can energize my body and calm my mind. While my background in law enforcement and martial arts made me aware of how important breathing is, BREATHE answered the why and how in a practical approachable way. I ve recommended BREATHE to my family and friends as an invaluable way of gaining control of one s health. --Steve Kardian
Mind blowing and practical! As someone who has never been able to sit still for too long and has a hard time relaxing no matter how tired she is, BREATHE was mind blowing in that it taught me how to pause and take inventory of my body. The chatter in my brain has lessened, I can get myself to go to sleep at night, and I feel centered in a way I never have before. Intuitively I knew breathing could do this, but this book holds the practical steps to get there. --Melissa Hobley
