Breathing Therapy for Headache & Tiredness

Dr Bharti kashyap
Our noses have left and right nostrils. Are these nostrils having the same function for inhaling / “breathe- in” and exhaling / “breathe- out”?

Actually it’s not the same and we can feel the difference. Accordingly, the right side represents the sun / “heat” and the left side represents the moon / “cold”. When having headache, try to close your right nostril and use your left nostril to do breathing for about 5 min. The headache will be gone. If you too tired, do it the opposite way. Close your left nostril and breathe through your right nostril. After a while, you will feel refresh again. Because the right side belongs to heat, so it gets hot easily. The left side gets cold easily. When we wake up, do we notice which nostril breathes faster? Is it the left side or the right side ? if the left nostril breathes faster, you will feel very tired. Close your left nostril and use your right nostril for breathing and you will get refresh quickly. You can teach your kids about it. The effect of breathing therapy is much better for adults. I used to have painful headache. While consulting a doctor, he tole me jokingly, “you will be all right if you get married!” The doctor did not bullshit me as he had his theory and supported with testimony. During that time, I used to have headache every night and I was not able to study. I took medicine but I was not cured. One night as I sat down to meditate, I closed my right nostril and breathed with my left nostril. In less than a week, it seemed that my headache problem had left me! I continued doning it for about a month and since then there was no recurrence of headache in me. This is my own experience. I used to tell others who also suffer headache to try this method as it was effective for me. It also works for those who have tried as well. This is a natural therapy, unlike taking medicines for a long time may have side effect. So, why don’t you try it out?. Practice the correct ways of breathing / “breathe in and breathe out” and your body will be relaxed.
