If you are one of the people suffering from chronic fatigue (also known as ME), you have probably tried various techniques and supplements to bring your body back to a state of health.
Sadly, most often, nothing seems to work. Symptoms such as extreme tiredness, joint pain and anxiety and depression, persist, even if they improve for periods of time.
Doctors don’t know what to do. They don’t even have tests for chronic fatigue – the diagnosis only comes about when other conditions have been eliminated.
Trying to increase activity levels often just makes matters worse. It feels like a vicious cycle.
Other people often don’t understand and offer unsuitable advice – sometimes feeling unheard and not understood by friends and family can make things worse.
You may not have considered how your breathing impacts your health, but actually, learning to breathe better can help with the symptoms of chronic fatigue (and particularly bad breathing can actually make things worse).
Our breathing methods involve learning how to breathe more slowly and mindfully, using the nose rather than the mouth. Many people suffering like you are now have seen huge improvements in their quality of life by reprogramming good breathing patterns, helping to relieve symptoms by rebalancing the Autonomic Nervous System, and stimulating the vagus nerve.
