Square Breathing Relieves Symptoms

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Recently I learned about square breathing, which involves matching inhalation time to exhalation time. I was advised to use square breathing for anxiety.

I have had success at temporarily reducing my POTS symptoms by using square breathing. What I've found is that if I square breath for two - five minutes, then the weakness in my limbs, dizziness, and inability to focus, improves for up to an hour.

This is just a very basic thing anyone can try without a doctor and it does not cost any money.

@green - thank you for sharing. I have been helped by breathing exercises often during hyperadrenergic spells and am aware of square breathing. It does work and throughout history ( in western and Asian medicine ) breathing has been proven to calm the ANS, improve circulation and decrease anxiety.
