Yogis have long known that the practice of voluntary breath control (consisting of intentional inhalations, retention, and exhalations) helps strengthen and purify the body so we can feel better and more energized.During pranayama, you are literally drinking in gallons and gallons of vitality and immunity.You supercharge the blood with extra oxygen. When you retain the breath, you literally inject more oxygen into the bloodstream.Oxygen is life, so that means you are enriching your blood with a lot of life. And not only do you take in more oxygen but along with the air you take in more pranayama. Every cell of your body vibrates with new life.
Stress reduction can be especially interesting when linking pranayama to immune health, as an increased amount of the stress hormone cortisol has been shown to lower immune function, resulting in more colds and transmitting infections easier. Next to improving immune function by decreasing stress levels, pranayama also has many physical immune benefits.Controlling the breath through different techniques stimulates our lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is our natural cleansing agent. It is responsible for removing toxins and unwanted waste products, which slow down or attack our immune function, from our body.
Deep and controlled breathing, exercised in pranayama, helps to get the lymph fluid flow properly through our body. This results in an enhanced lymphatic function and an improved removal from toxins. Moreover, a healthy lymphatic system also fights viruses and bacteria already when entering the body. The result: Getting sick less often and increased energy levels.
