You can protect against Covid-19 with breathing exercises
Emphasizing that poisonous substances in the body cannot be thrown out breathing wrong, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Haluk Saçaklı said that ‘you can protect against Covid-19 with breathing exercises’.
“THE RIGHT BREATHING TECHNIQUE IS IMPORTANT”
Stating that chest breathing is more tiring than abdominal breathing, Assoc. Dr. Haluk Saçaklı said, “As the chest wall approaches its flexibility limit, its resistance increases and the respiratory muscles get fatigue earlier. With the diaphragm breath, the defense system of the lungs is strengthened. For this, it is important to know the correct breathing technique.
Providing information about the correct breathing technique, Saçaklı said:
“Take the breath away from the nose as much as possible. Breathing through the nose; allows deeper, fuller and controllable breathing. Breathing through the mouth; It is used to increase the oxygen intake in cases of low oxygen in high intensity exercises. The nose is a complex and highly functional organ that filters foreign matter. As the breath enters through the nostrils, it moistens and becomes suitable for body temperature.”
“ABDOMINAL CAVITY MUST BE FILLED FIRST WHEN BREATHING”
Stating that most people squeeze their breath only between the chest and the trachea, Saçaklı said: “However, this is faulty breathing. The path of the breath should be extended. First of all, the first place the breath will fill is the abdominal cavity. Inflate your belly with air through a deep breath that you will take from the nose. By sending the diaphragm muscle into the chest, send the air you breathe from there to the trachea. Feel the air in the trachea, get its flavor, after holding it for 2 seconds, if the nasal passages are open, start breathing slowly again through the nose. First the shoulders come down, then the rib cage is pulled in, eventually pulling your abdomen well and evacuating all the air.”
