    Breathe Deeply – For At Least Six Minutes

    Posted on January 17, 2018 by in Featured

    I didn’t understand the power of deep breathing until I started doing it recently in an effort to increase blood flow and circulation in my eyes. Turns out that in addition to improving my overall health – including immune system function, absorption of nutrients and the release of toxins –it’s amazing for relaxation and stress […]
