Your breath is by far one of the most effective techniques there is for managing stress and pain.
It’s completely natural, costs you nothing, and has no negative side effects. It works because it is how your body is designed to work.
The vagus nerve is one of the most important nerves in your body. It has various jobs depending on where it is in your body. At the base of your diaphragm, it’s function is to send a signal to your brain to stimulate the release of calming hormones. Your brain cannot produce stress chemicals like adrenaline and cortisol at the same time it releases endorphins and other calming chemicals.
Breathing in a very special way helps you calm your body and shift your focus away from what is stressing or hurting you, to something that will relax and calm you, naturally relieving your pain and stress levels.
