Hearing: A vital part of Healthy Lifestyle
Hearing is a vital part of our bodily health. There is a very close connection between hearing, our lifestyle and emotions. And it has been scientifically proven. The unquestionable depth of this relationship has been shown in studies that suggest that corrective breathing and meditation not only assure good health but also improve hearing.
Stress is an unavoidable phenomena in today’s world and our body has created a defense mechanism to counter stress which is known as the “Fight or Flight Response”. This response emits certain chemicals in the body which can be harmful for the ears. In today’s society, as we are exposed to long term stress so we get exposed to these chemicals for a longer period of time. Prolonged exposure to these chemicals create inflammation and deteriorates certain parts of the body including the inner parts of the ear.
Improve Your Brain Power
Deep focused breathing increases an individual’s ability to perceive sound and brain’s capability to decode these signals and store this auditory information.
Nitaai Breathing, is a form of deep corrective breathing which consists of deep inhaling and resonating the sound “Nitaai” very slowly whilst exhalation. Whilst doing this, “Ni” is short, “taa” is long and “i” is short again. In the initial stages, this has to be done for about 10 minutes a day. One can increase the duration gradually. There is no restrictions on where and in which posture one should sit. This form of breathing instantly gives calmness, mindfulness, peace and bliss in the heart.
Nitaai Breathing has also been shown to increase the flow of blood in the ears’ nerves. This blood flow initiates the process of healing the damaged nerves in the ears to help improve hearing. This can prove to be very beneficial for the hearing impaired.
