The 4-week breathing retraining plan to relieve stress, anxiety and panic
By Mary Birch
A simple, practical, step-by-step guide to help you stop overbreathing and relieve the symptoms of panic, anxiety and stress.
Get back to basics and transform your life with this simple four-week, step-by-step breathing retraining program.
In her years of teaching breathing retraining, Mary Birch has found that the majority of her clients experiencing symptoms of panic, anxiety and stress are overbreathing, sometimes significantly. Generally, they are not aware that they are overbreathing, or that this is linked to symptoms. Reducing breathing to the normal level has an enormous impact on reducing stress, anxiety, and panic and restoring a sense of calm.
Most people will begin to feel an improvement in their symptoms within a week of implementing the strategies contained in this book, sometimes even within a few days. But Mary recommends a minimum four-week breathing retraining program for a reason: the body has to adjust to the new and improved breathing pattern, and this needs to become automatic, so that you do not revert to a disordered breathing pattern and chronic overbreathing in times of stress.
Part 1 of this book provides an explanation of the link between overbreathing and stress, anxiety and panic symptoms. Part 2 contains a four-week program with weekly guidelines to help people experiencing these issues to improve their breathing pattern and gain long-term relief.
If you struggle with symptoms of panic, stress or anxiety, this book could help change your life in a matter of weeks.
