Diagnosis: Email Apnea?: "
By Linda Stone
Mirapex without prescription, I've just opened my email and there's nothing out of the ordinary there. It's the usual daily flood of schedule, project, canada mirapex, travel, Mirapex side effects, information, and junk mail. Then I notice, canadian pharmacy mirapex. I'm holding my breath. Discount mirapex online,
As the email spills onto my screen, as my mind races with thoughts of what I'll answer first, what can wait, mirapex cheap, who I should call, Tablet mirapex, what should have been done two days ago; I've stopped the steady breathing I was doing only moments earlier in a morning meditation and now, I'm holding my breath.
And here's the deal: You're probably holding your breath, too.
I wanted to know -- how widespread is email apnea*, mirapex without prescription. I observed others on computers and BlackBerries: in their offices, buy discount mirapex online, their homes, Mirapex online without a prescription, at cafes. The vast majority of people held their breath, or breathed very shallowly, buy mirapex in us, especially when responding to email. Buy mirapex no rx, I watched people on cell phones, talking and walking, and noticed that most were mouth-breathing and hyperventilating, cheapest mirapex price. Consider also, Buy mirapex pills, that for many, posture while seated at a computer can contribute to restricted breathing.
Does it matter. How was holding my breath affecting me?
Mirapex without prescription, I called Dr. Margaret Chesney, order no rx mirapex, at the National Institute of Health (NIH). Find mirapex, Research conducted by Dr. Margaret Chesney and NIH research scientist Dr. David Anderson demonstrated that breath-holding contributes significantly to stress-related diseases, find no rx mirapex. The body becomes acidic, the kidneys begin to re-absorb sodium, and as the oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), and nitric oxide (NO) balance is undermined, our biochemistry is thrown off, mirapex without prescription.
Breath holding and hyperventilating disturb our body's balance of oxygen, Cheap mirapex from canada, CO2, and NO. Nitric oxide, cheap price mirapex, not to be confused with the nitrous oxide used in dental offices, Find mirapex without prescription, plays an important role in our health. From a briefing document prepared for the Royal Society and Association of British Science Writers, Pearce Wright explains, where to buy mirapex, 'The immune system uses nitric oxide in fighting viral, Find mirapex online, bacterial and parasitic infections, and tumours. Nitric oxide transmits messages between nerve cells and is associated with the processes of learning, mirapex pills, memory, Buy mirapex from canada, sleeping, feeling pain, and, mirapex for order, probably, Mirapex medication, depression. It is a mediator in inflammation and rheumatism.'
Mirapex without prescription, As I researched the literature, and spoke with physicians and researchers about breath-holding, a relationship to the vagus nerve emerged. The vagus nerve is one of the major cranial nerves, and wanders from the head, order cheap mirapex, to the neck, Find mirapex no prescription required, chest and abdomen. Its primary job is to mediate the autonomic nervous system, which includes the sympathetic ('fight or flight') and parasympathetic ('rest and digest') nervous systems, cheap mirapex in usa.
The parasympathetic nervous system governs our sense of hunger and satiety, Mirapex australia, flow of saliva and digestive enzymes, the relaxation response, and many aspects of healthy organ function, pharmacy mirapex. Focusing on diaphragmatic breathing enables us to down regulate the sympathetic nervous system, Mirapex drug, which then causes the parasympathetic nervous system to become dominant. Shallow breathing, breath-holding and hyperventilating trigger the sympathetic nervous system, in a 'fight or flight' response.
The activated sympathetic nervous system causes the liver to dump glucose and cholesterol into our blood, our heart rate to increase, our sense of satiety to be compromised, and our bodies to anticipate and resource for the physical activity that, historically, accompanied a physical fight or flight response, mirapex without prescription. Meanwhile, when the only physical activity is sitting and responding to email, buy mirapex lowest price, we're sort of 'all dressed up with nowhere to go.'
Some breathing patterns favor our body's move toward parasympathetic functions and other breathing patterns favor a sympathetic nervous system response. Discount mirapex overnight delivery, Diaphragmatic breathing, Buteyko breathing (developed by a Russian M.D., http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buteyko_method), order mirapex no prescription, some of Andy Weil's breathing exercises, Cheap mirapex on internet, and certain martial arts and yoga breathing techniques, all have the potential to soothe us, and to help our bodies differentiate when fight or flight is really necessary and when we can rest and digest, buy mirapex on internet.
Now I want to know: Is it only the Big Mac that makes us fat. Buy cheap mirapex online, Or, are we more obese and diabetic because of a combination of holding our breath off and on all day and then failing to move when our bodies have prepared us to do so. Mirapex without prescription, Can 15 minutes of diaphragmatic breathing before a meal tune us in to when we're full. If, order mirapex in canada, when we're doing sedentary work, Purchase mirapex overnight delivery, and O2, CO2, and NO are optimally balanced, cheapest mirapex online, through healthy breathing, Purchase mirapex without prescription, will we escape the ravages of an always-on sympathetic nervous system. Can daily breathing exercises contribute to helping reduce asthma, ADD, depression, obesity, and a host of other stress-related conditions.
I predict, within the next five-to-seven years, breathing exercises will be a significant part of every fitness regime. In the meantime, why not breathe while doing email. Awareness is the first step toward wiping out email apnea!
*Email apnea - a temporary absence or suspension of breathing, or shallow breathing, while doing email (Linda Stone, February 2008).
