What is it called when you see something then see it again? Is that a form of reinforcement that says REMEMBER THIS ? Let me explain what I ran across recently then saw it several more times!
I was researching breast cancer for a client and read some research from a *Master Herbalist that I study under. Here’s what he found from studies done:
Cancer cells are anaerobic (relating to or requiring an absence of oxygen), which mean they live and thrive in a low oxygen environment. They are able to get their energy by metabolizing nutrients, notable sugars and carbohydrates, without oxygen, in a fermentative process. Cancer cells cannot survive in a high oxygen environment, so keeping the body well oxygenated inhibits cancer*.
I did not know that oxygen played such a role in the disease of Cancer.
Then I was reading a book on fitness and wellness. I am constantly reading something you know, a habit I picked up as a kid when I learned how to read.
In this book about fitness – it was talking about how important it is to breathe properly, particularly while exercising. It stated that shallow breathing prevents your body from getting enough oxygen, which leaves you at risk for heart attacks, cancer, strokes and other diseases and will eventually lead to muscle atrophy and exercise intolerance*.
There was my Remember sign.
I cannot help but refer to a therapy that I do in my office called Chi Machine* therapy. The Chi machine is considered a passive aerobic exercise device that is actually FDA approved as a Class 1 Therapeutic Massager. It works very simply through movement! The developers of the Chi machine claim that it oxygenates the body via ‘passive aerobic exercise’ activating the lymphatic system, enabling detoxification, and aligns the spine due to the figure of eight motion caused by the specific oscillation of the machine.
I would highly recommend the Chi machine so please come by Green Rose Health to check it out. Another way to get more oxygen is to practice deep breathing. Deep breathing is one of the most beneficial exercises you can do for your body. It increases oxygen to your cells and kicks your metabolism into high gear so you become more energized. This will help you lose weight if necessary or maintain a healthy body weight!
You can get double benefit by practicing your deep breathing while doing the Chi machine !
