On the Modern Condition of Anxiety Disorder And Depression And The Power of Breath.

Prescriptions for the dispensing of antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications are on the rise globally year by year. Prescriptions for 64.7 million medical antidepressants – an all-time high – were dispensed in England in 2016, the most recent annual data from NHS Digital showed. That was 3.7 million more than the 61m items dispensed during 2015.

Anxiety disorder is a serious mental illness. For people with anxiety disorders, worry and fear are constant and overwhelming and can be rather limiting. Anxiety manifests in various forms of stress, tension, apprehension and depression. Such disorders are caused by a combination of factors, including changes in the brain and environmental stress.

However, there is a natural way of addressing anxiety and stress also, available to one and all!.

Within the science of Ayurvedic healing and lifestyle, it is called Pranayama!

Pranayama is the science of cleansing, balancing, and gaining control over the universal life force through your own breath.

Breath is the most vital process of the body. It influences the activities of each and every cell and is intimately linked to the performance of the brain. Most people breathe incorrectly, using a small part of their lung capacity. Breathing is then generally shallow, depriving the body of oxygen.

But pranayama corrects breathing habits. In addition, it helps to focus on the breathing process.

(Swami Shivananda (1854–1934), born Tarak Nath Ghosal, was a Hindu spiritual leader and a direct disciple of Ramakrishna, who became the second president of the Ramakrishna Mission.

His devotees refer to him as Mahapurush Maharaj (Great Soul). Swami Shivananda taught that there is an intimate connection between the breath, nerve currents and control of the inner vital force.

Pranayama is the means by which a yogi tries to realise within his individual body the whole cosmic nature and attempts to attain perfection.

Also… handily your breath is with you constantly and can be called on and used at any time.
