Does Breathing Correctly Prevent Thinning Hair? - Articles Surfing

Humans are really not as smart as we think we are. After all, we take far more care of our cars, computers and stereos than we do of our bodies. We have operation manuals for such things as electric egg poachers and toasters, but not for something as complex as our own bodies.

Hair like any other part of the body requires nourishment and this comes primarily through the bloodstream. If your blood supply to the scalp is not adequate, or if it is continually interrupted then the hair roots will be affected, as will the hair itself.

There are many Internal/External and Cosmetic factors, which contribute to hair loss and the overall condition of the hair and scalp. As we continue to build our background knowledge in this regard realise that correct breathing is one such factor. It is often taken for granted yet nevertheless it is necessary in order to assist the Internal body in promoting External Hair Health benefits.

What does oxygen do?
Oxygen (O2) releases energy from our cells so that we can function properly. A cell deprived of oxygen will die, and other parts of the body, which depend on that cell, will feel the loss. Oxygen is readily available from the air around us; all we have to do is breathe it in. However this does not necessarily mean that because we have lungs full of oxygen that we are able to use it all.
Our body chemistry must be correctly balanced so that the oxygen can break away from the haemoglobin carrier in the blood and get into our tissues to nourish them. More about this a little later.

What does CO2 do?
Carbon dioxide actually has 3 roles in keeping the body healthy and in balance. Where does it come from? It is not present in the air around us in any quantity that we would be able to use. In fact CO2 in the atmosphere is less than 0.03%. We manufacture our own CO2 in our bodies. This is done as we digest our food as well as when we exercise. These are the only two sources we have. Just think about it for a moment. When we exercise we breath more rapidly than when we sit in a chair watching television.

The more we exercise, the more we breathe ' pant. Also think about your breathing when you have finished eating or drinking. Your breathing speeds up. So, in an area of the brain called the medulla, we have our breathing trigger. This is connected to the diaphragm and, when it gets a signal to breathe, it fires a message to the muscles of the diaphragm causing us to breathe. This is all set when we're born and there has to be a reason for the saying "Sleeping like a baby". Just watch a baby at rest. The tummy rises and falls gently, the mouth is closed and ALL BREATHING is done through the nose. This is known as NORMAL BREATHING.
