HOW TO CURE COLD / STREP THROAT NATURALLY
==============================================
** The method described below must be exercised by you only using your correct judgement or if you feel that what is written may work for you. Please exercise your own judgement when following the method or steps below. Some principals of AYURVEDA & Breathing exercises are used. This is not a sure shot method so you may talk to your doctor to get better idea. I just describe below what I did when severe form of cold struck on me**
When the COLD / STREP Throat struck
==============================
It starts with a runny nose which goes on for several hours or 1-2 days at least draining all your salts from body making you feel feverish (without fever) , tired and fatigued. The side effect could be a strep throat where you feel as if your throat is like a coarse paper.

The Ingredients you need:
===================
Cayenne pepper (Red chillies powder) gargle for throat 3-4 times a day, ELECTROLYTE POWDER (It works by replacing electrolytes and carbohydrates in the body to prevent dehydration), PRANAYAM technique to open up breathing path and Sinuses without use of inhalers, Warm water one glass every two hours occasionally added/mix with a pinch (0.5 gram) of turmeric powder and good old Vicks vaporab.

Steps to manage the cold / strep throat
============================
1. We will let the cold run its course which may take 1-2 days or more. During this time:
2. Gargle the throat with Cayenne pepper added water 3-4 times a day to prevent strep throat.
3. Drink Warm water every 1-2 hours (sometimes add a pinch of turmeric powder to water)
4. Use vicks vaporub at night for inside nostrils.
5. If not able to breathe because of closing of sinuses or breathing path, use BREATHING EXERCISE several times in a day to open up sinuses without use of inhalers.
Just take a small INHALE from one nostril (alternate between left and right nostril) while closing the other nostril and pinch close your nostril (using index finger and thumb) and hold breathe for at least 20-30 seconds (Or to the point where you feel like taking another breathe) and then exhale slowly from other nostril for each step. FLEX YOUR NOSTRIL DURING PINCH HOLD OF nostrils using the air pressure that is built during hold. If you have a FORCEFUL exhale after hold, then you have hold for good time. Repeat this till you feel that sinuses have opened up.
6. After the cold/runny nose has stopped, the feeling of being fatigued or tiredness will continue as your body fluids with electrolytes loss has weakened your immune system.  During this time you may decide to use one Electrolyte powder drink daily for 2-3 days or till you feel good. I felt good just after 2 such electrolyte drinks. Please look for side effects and dosage for electrolyte yourself.
The other way is to drink Coconut water daily till the fatigue is gone.
7. Apart from this, I used over the counter dry cough syrups and herbal remedies like hot soups and warm milk added with a pinch of turmeric powder and coconut water or NEEM/TULSI capsules alongside to carry on smoothly during the cold attack.
8. Also it helps to shift you breathing pattern to belly rather than from chest or nose, meaning we use belly to breathe IN. During this process during Breathing IN the stomach INFLATES and during exhale STOMACH collapses. You would notice calm breathing where Nose is idle and hence no sound of breathing comes. This technique also prevents hyperventilation which is prime cause of COLD as free particles generated on account of hyperventilation (rapid breathing) must be removed through nose in form of cold symptoms.
DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING (breathing from belly) to prevent hyperventilation (rapid breathing)
=============================================
 Sit comfortably in an upright chair. When you are first learning, it may be helpful to lie down on the floor or a bed, which makes it easier for your abdomen to expand and contract with each breath.
 Rest one hand on chest and other hand lightly on your abdomen/belly, about one inch above your navel. You must experience belly rising during correct process.
 Inhale gently, expanding your belly as you do so. You should feel your belly expanding beneath your hand during each INHALE. If chest is expanding during inhale then you are doing it wrong. Consciously feel your belly inflating during each inhale.
 Exhale softly, contracting/collapsing your belly as you do so, feeling it contract. During exhale you can see your stomach flattening or going in.
 Do above steps at least 5 times every day just before you go to sleep to shift the breathing to belly. You will notice this brings in SOUNDLESS breathing as instead of NOSE your belly is used for each INHALE.

Losing weight



How to lose FAT or do a weight loss with BREATHING
==================================================
• There is surprising ignorance and confusion about the metabolic process of weight loss. Excess carbs and proteins are converted into chemical compounds called triglyceride's (which consist of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen) and then stored in the lipid droplets of fat cells.
• To lose weight, you’re attempting to metabolize those triglycerides, and that means unlocking the carbon that’s stored in your fat cells.
• So; losing 10 kilograms of human fat requires the inhalation of 29 kilograms of oxygen, producing 28 kilograms of carbon dioxide and 11 kilograms of water. That’s the metabolic fate of fat.

How does the weight loss happen? The correct answer is that most of the mass is breathed out as carbon dioxide, Reference URL: http://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/where-does-your-fat-go-when-you-lose-weight

SO HOW DO WE LOSE FAT THEN? SIMPLE; with breathing exercise
======================================================
BREATHING EXERCISE for WEIGHT LOSS
=====================================

1) Select a location either garden or near window where fresh air is available.
2) Stand in a relaxed position, upright position. Take a small napkin for use.
3) Take a single inhale from NOSE, as if you are sipping from Air.
3) Now, INHALE from MOUTH; as if you are sipping from Air. KEEP your mouth closed always after inhale.
4) HOLD or PINCH your NOSE and start BRISK WAKING from point A to point B and Point B to Point A. Count number of times you covered each point.
5) Try holding for at least 30-40 seconds or more. Hold; till STRONG URGE TO BREATH. At this time you feel like doing forceful inhale exhales.
6) Release your nose and EXHALE. Exhale fully, several time using both, Nose/MOUTH.
7) Repeat steps above 5-7 times. This exercise can be done in sitting position also but you must hold after Inhale for at least 30-40 seconds.
8) You can also perform this exercise at home walking from one wall to another or in a sitting position.
9) You can also perform this exercise any time and many times during the day whenever you are free to do it.
10) In around 8 to 12 weeks you would have seen major change in belly and other fat.

RECOVERY STEPS- ASTHMA / FREQUENT Cold & Cough
=====================================================
If you are one of those who experienced frequent cold cough issues then you have reached the right blog. Normal people face cold cough issues 2-3 times a year but some of us face these many times a year and sometimes once every month or every few weeks. It was almost impossible to sit under running fan and drink anything cold. NOSTRIL affected by obstruction (Nasal polyp, Deviated Septum, [Flimsy Nostrils/nasal valve collapse/collapsed nostril outer wall], and more) cause frequent cough and cold. The two pronged approach of opening up Nose Airways/breathing path and NOSTRIL widening/flexing is used to get rid of the problem. In AYURVEDA they believe that any chronic disease with “FOOD AS MEDICINE” along with PRANAYAM or BREATHING EXERCISES can cure most of diseases and somehow with my own personal experience I have come to believe that it is true most of time. As always, I suggest that one must use necessary precautions and follow their own judgement when doing or performing some exercises mentioned in this blog. I myself have a slightly collapsed outer right nostril wall which caused obstruction during inhale and thus cold issues mostly on right nostril side. I have only mentioned exercises that I have practically used myself on day to day basis to get rid of chronic issues that I faced.
=====================================================  
BEFORE YOU START BREATHING EXERCISE PLEASE CONSIDER FOLLOWING POINTS:
===================================================
 In just 4 weeks you would have recovered from Asthma Cold & Cough issues. But to make the cure permanent you must continue to do the exercise for few months.
 BREATHE IN, HOLD, EXHALE OUT shall be structure of your breathing pattern always during all breathing exercises.
 Fast Inhale & Fast Exhale type of breathing will only make you light headed and will cause low blood pressure making you dizzy. This type of exercise will lower your CO2 in blood and thus will cause less O2 to be brought to blood and to cells.
 No matter how you look at it, the more oxygen you have in your body during and after exercise, the better you will perform and the faster you will recover!
 CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) is the mechanism we use to DILATE and open up breathing path and also to make FORCEFUL exhale & inhale on account of too much CO2 build-up during  breathing exercises. You must exhale from mouth also if inhale was done by mouth.
 We build CO2 by holding after INHALE and we try to increase our CO2 tolerance by holding it as much possible (Minimum 45-50 seconds)
 We will start all breathing exercises by first supplying enough oxygen to body so that it does not cause any cardiovascular issues when building CO2 (Carbon dioxide) which is a mechanism we use to open up the breathing path and forceful exhales.
 These breathing exercises can be performed any time of days; even after or before meals although it is preferable to do these on empty stomach.
 THE HOLD AFTER INHALE will cause Oxygen to be distributed to cells by CO2 generated on account of HOLD. You must hold enough till you get urge to exhale. Similarly after around 15-20 Seconds of hold all the oxygen would have got distributed and now more CO2 creation because of hold will OPEN UP you BREATHING PATH and thus more creation of CO2 will cause you eventually to BREATHE where CO2 is exhaled through NOSE AIRWAYs.
 It is this FORCEFUL INHALE EXHALE AFTER THE HOLD that will release your Nose Airways and open them up and in turn will stop cold & cough issues along with Asthma.
 During all breathing exercises; flex your nose during pinch hold with help of air pressure that is created during hold. You must hold enough till you get urge to exhale.
 Also exercise that flex your NOSTRILS will help free breathing path and thus avoid cold issues. Exercise 1 & 3 with single nostril inhale will help you flex nostril and open up your nostril path. Always use other nostril for exhale during exercise. You must make an effort to FLEX your nose/nostrils during pinch hold always with help of air pressure that is built during the pinch hold of nose.
 Exercise (2; starting from exhale) is the best way to generate quick CO2 build-up and thus quick forceful Inhale & exhale; but EVERY SINGLE exercise (2) MAY BE followed by SINGLE O2 building exercise (1) with multiple Inhales. This must be done to avoid cardiovascular issues later.
 If you drink tea coffee use only small quantity and drink it not too hot or too warm. Drink all hot or cold beverages at leisure and not quick as otherwise they aggravate cough issues. All Hot or Cold beverages must be had slowly and never quick gulp.
 Usually when the cold is unstoppable and runny nose, high doses of Vitamin C does the trick.
        First thing in morning gargle with Cayenne pepper added WATER. Add 3-4 gram of cayenne pepper (Red
        chilies powder) to half glass of water and use this water for gargle.

A QUICK TEST
===========
A NOSTRIL affected by obstruction (Deviated Septum, [Flimsy Nostrils/nasal valve collapse/collapsed nostril outer wall/Floppy nostrils]) causes frequent runny nose.
 In some people, the space between the nasal septum and the soft part of both nostrils is either too narrow to begin with, or they collapse partially or completely during inspiration or Inhale causing obstruction to free flow of inhaled air.
 Flimsy / Floppy nostrils - that collapse during even quiet inspiration/Inhale thus causing breathing obstruction. If sidewalls of your nostrils cave in as you breathe in? Then you have flimsy Nostril.
 Remove or take off the cotton ends from two Q-Tips and place the thin end inside your nostril and lift up and sideways. Take a deep breathe in. Is your breathing much improved?
 The Only way out is to use Nasal dilator /Nasal stents devices; but wait....We will use breathing techniques to OPEN UP NOSTRILS.
 Or you are one of those where it was almost impossible to sit under running fan and drink anything cold.
Let us do a small test to find out which NOSTRIL is affected by obstruction which causes free particle build-up and thus frequent colds.  It is OBSTRUCTION of a NOSTRIL (either one or both) that causes frequent cold & cough on account of free particle build-up which must be exhaled by HISTAMINE release. We will identify the problem NOSTRIL and through breathing exercise make sure that the obstruction is removed by regular exercise routines.
TEST:
Press finger or press HOLD on one NOSTRIL by closing it and then try INHALE & EXHALE through another NOSTRIL. Verify the same by doing the same process by closing ANOTHER NOSTRIL. Decide which NOSTRIL causes breathing issue when done only by ONE NOSTRIL. The breathing shall be free and without strain on BOTH NOSTRIL but if you identify one or both nostril making it difficult to breath when done only on one nostril   then that particular nostril requires to be used more during exercise for FORCEFUL INHALE EXHALE. You must exhale from mouth also if inhale was done by mouth.

First thing in morning gargle with Cayenne pepper added WATER. Add 3-4 gram of cayenne pepper (Red chilies powder) to half glass of water and use this water for gargle.

EXERCISE (1) (STARTING FROM INHALE) for Asthma & Cold Cough cure
=======================================================
1. Select a location either garden or near window where fresh air is available.
2. Stand in a relaxed position, upright position. Take a small napkin for use.
3. Now, INHALE as if you are sipping from Air. KEEP your mouth closed always. This Step 3 will be modified to either produce O2 or CO2 as required. The INHALE here will be either SINGLE or MULTIPLE as explained in (HOW TO) below.
4. HOLD or PINCH your NOSE and start BRISK WAKING from point A to point B and Point B to Point A. Count number of times you covered each point.
5. Try holding for at least 30-45 seconds or more; or Hold till STRONG URGE TO BREATH.  At this time you feel like doing forceful inhale exhales.
6. Release your nose, and do quick INHALE EXHALE. You may require 5-6 quick inhales exhales at this time. You must exhale from mouth also if inhale was done by mouth.
7. RELAX. You can also perform this exercise at home walking from one wall to another.

EXERCISE (2) (STARTING FROM EXHALE) for Asthma & Cold Cough cure
=======================================================
1. Select a location either garden or near window where fresh air is available.
2. Stand in a relaxed position, upright position. Take a small napkin for use.
3. NOW EXHALE FROM NOSE to remove all air from lungs.
4. HOLD or PINCH your NOSE and start BRISK WAKING from point A to point B and Point B to Point A. Count number of times you covered each point.
5. Try holding for at least 15-20 seconds or more. Hold till STRONG URGE TO BREATH.  At this time you feel like doing forceful inhale exhales.
6. Release your nose, and do quick INHALE EXHALE. You may require 5-6 quick inhales exhales at this time.
7. Do NOT do this exercise more than twice in a session. You can also perform this exercise at home walking from one wall to another.
8. If you have cardiovascular issues you may skip this exercise.

EXERCISE (3):  We will use this exercise to open up NOSTRIL PATH to widen it
======================================================
 Preferably use this exercise empty stomach or at least 3-4 hours after meals. This exercise is optional step.
 Select a location either garden or near window where fresh air is available.
 Stand in a relaxed upright position; place your feet about shoulder width apart.
 Close your RIGHT NOSTRIL with Index finger and INHALE DEEPLY through the LEFT Nostril.
 Next, close both nostrils with thumb and forefinger.
 Bend over from the waist, head lowered, knees slightly bent.
 Hold your breath in this position for 15 to 30 seconds, or as long as you comfortably can. While you are in this lowered position, you will feel a strong pulsation of blood in your head, eyes, mouth and tongue, and a flushed feeling from your chest to the top of your head. You feel the pressure on nostrils too.
 Finally, slowly straighten up, and slowly let the breath out from the right nostril.
 Take a small deep breath and hold for few seconds and exhale.
 Do the exercise 3 times per session for each nostril for its full value. I started with just 10 Seconds and only 2 times for first few days as I felt dizziness, but it was soon gone as I maintained it at 10-15 seconds initially.
 Always remember to inhale from the left nostril and exhale through the right nostril. Reverse NOSTRIL for next 3 steps.

(HOW TO) - The STEP’s in which to perform the exercise above:-
First thing in morning gargle with Cayenne pepper added WATER. Add 3-4 gram of cayenne pepper (Red chilies powder) to half glass of water and use this water for gargle.
1. During all breathing exercises; flex your nose during pinch hold with help of air pressure that is created during hold. You must hold enough till you get urge to exhale.
2. The multiple inhales with nose/mouth along with HOLD will cause good amount of O2 to be distributed.
3. Do exercise (2; starting from exhale) above not more than twice. If you have cardiovascular issues you may skip this exercise.
4. These breathing exercises can be performed any time of days; even after or before meals although it is preferable to do these on empty stomach.
5. Anytime during pinch hold of nose if you feel dizzy then take time to compose and once you are in control of your body then only start walking as asked below.

=================================================
Okay just follow these steps (1-7) to recover from Asthma Cold Cough issues
==========================================================
1. During all breathing exercises; flex your nose during pinch hold with help of air pressure that is created during hold. You must hold enough till you get urge to exhale. AT MINIMUM you must perform Step (2, 3 & 6) to get rid of cold cough asthma. Anytime during pinch hold of nose if you feel dizzy then take time to compose and once you are in control of your body then only start walking as asked below.
2. Thrice perform exercise (1; starting from inhale) with MULTIPLE INHALE (3-4) from nose followed by single inhale from mouth for each step i.e. first take multiple inhales from nose and immediately inhale once from mouth . Hold 25-30 seconds; or hold enough till you get urge to exhale. Flex your nose during pinch hold. You must exhale from nose & mouth also if inhale was done by mouth.
3. Twice Perform exercise (2;starting from exhale) (Hold time 15-20 seconds or till strong urge to breathe again)
4. Twice perform exercise (1; starting from inhale) with MULTIPLE INHALE (3-4) from nose followed by single inhale from mouth for each step i.e. first take multiple inhales from nose and immediately inhale once from mouth . Hold 25-30 seconds; or hold enough till you get urge to exhale. Flex your nose during pinch hold. You must exhale from nose & mouth also if inhale was done by mouth.
5. Twice perform exercise (1; starting from inhale) with SINGLE INHALE; flex your nose during pinch hold. Hold 20-30 seconds or till strong urge to breathe. Use AIR pressure built inside nostril during hold to flex your nostrils.
6. Thrice perform exercise (1) with SINGLE INHALE, first from LEFT nostril closing right nostril with index finger. Pinch close nose with index finger & thumb and Hold 15-20 seconds. Flex your nose during pinch hold with help of air pressure that is created during hold. During exhale use right nostril. REPEAT this thrice for RIGHT nostril Inhale and exhale from left nostril. DURING THIS EXERCISE on EACH EXHALE; FLUSH out all the cough or liquid using forceful exhales. DO multiple such exhales each time if there is cough or liquid present to flush it out completely during this exercise.
7. Optionally; DO EXERCISE (3; inhale from one nostril with bend) two-three sets for EACH NOSTRIL. Always use other nostril to exhale after hold. You will notice air pressure building on your nostrils.
8. AT MINIMUM you must perform Step (2, 3 & 6) to get rid of cold cough asthma.
9. ==========================================
10. Exercise in step 2, 3 & 6 are used to flex your nose to create free breathing path from nose airways or nostrils. You must make an effort to FLEX your nose/nostrils during pinch hold always with help of air pressure that is built during the pinch hold of nose.
11. JUST before sleep and also anytime during the day; make sure to open up your nostril by performing exercise as in step (2) & (6)
12. -----------------------------------------------------------------------
13. If you drink tea coffee use only small quantity and drink it not too hot or too warm. Drink all hot or cold beverages at leisure and not quick as otherwise they aggravate cough issues. All Hot or Cold beverages must be had slowly and never quick gulp.
14. We use two pronged approach of dilating breathing path & nose airways using carbon dioxide mechanism and also use exercises that dilate nostril path by flexing nose during hold.
15. Also exercise that flex your NOSTRILS will help free breathing path and thus avoid cold issues. You must exhale from mouth also if inhale was done by mouth.

1. During all breathing exercises; flex your nose during pinch hold with help of air pressure that is created during hold. You must hold enough till you get urge to exhale.
2. The multiple inhales with nose/mouth along with HOLD will cause good amount of O2 to be distributed.
3. Do exercise (2; starting from exhale) above not more than twice. If you have cardiovascular issues you may skip this exercise.
4. These breathing exercises can be performed any time of days; even after or before meals although it is preferable to do these on empty stomach.
5. Anytime during pinch hold of nose if you feel dizzy then take time to compose and once you are in control of your body then only start walking as asked below.

Okay just follow these steps (1-7) to recover from Asthma Cold Cough issues
==========================================================
1. During all breathing exercises; flex your nose during pinch hold with help of air pressure that is created during hold. You must hold enough till you get urge to exhale. AT MINIMUM you must perform Step (2, 3 & 6) to get rid of cold cough asthma. Anytime during pinch hold of nose if you feel dizzy then take time to compose and once you are in control of your body then only start walking as asked below.
2. Thrice perform exercise (1; starting from inhale) with MULTIPLE INHALE (3-4) from nose followed by single inhale from mouth for each step i.e. first take multiple inhales from nose and immediately inhale once from mouth . Hold 25-30 seconds; or hold enough till you get urge to exhale. Flex your nose during pinch hold. You must exhale from nose & mouth also if inhale was done by mouth.
3. Twice Perform exercise (2;starting from exhale) (Hold time 15-20 seconds or till strong urge to breathe again)
4. Twice perform exercise (1; starting from inhale) with MULTIPLE INHALE (3-4) from nose followed by single inhale from mouth for each step i.e. first take multiple inhales from nose and immediately inhale once from mouth . Hold 25-30 seconds; or hold enough till you get urge to exhale. Flex your nose during pinch hold. You must exhale from nose & mouth also if inhale was done by mouth.
5. Twice perform exercise (1; starting from inhale) with SINGLE INHALE; flex your nose during pinch hold. Hold 20-30 seconds or till strong urge to breathe. Use AIR pressure built inside nostril during hold to flex your nostrils.
6. Thrice perform exercise (1) with SINGLE INHALE, first from LEFT nostril closing right nostril with index finger. Pinch close nose with index finger & thumb and Hold 15-20 seconds. Flex your nose during pinch hold with help of air pressure that is created during hold. During exhale use right nostril. REPEAT this thrice for RIGHT nostril Inhale and exhale from left nostril. DURING THIS EXERCISE on EACH EXHALE; FLUSH out all the cough or liquid using forceful exhales. DO multiple such exhales each time if there is cough or liquid present to flush it out completely during this exercise.
7. Optionally; DO EXERCISE (3; inhale from one nostril with bend) two-three sets for EACH NOSTRIL. Always use other nostril to exhale after hold. You will notice air pressure building on your nostrils.
8. AT MINIMUM you must perform Step (2, 3 & 6) to get rid of cold cough asthma.
9. ==========================================
10. Exercise in step 2, 3 & 6 are used to flex your nose to create free breathing path from nose airways or nostrils. You must make an effort to FLEX your nose/nostrils during pinch hold always with help of air pressure that is built during the pinch hold of nose.
11. JUST before sleep and also anytime during the day; make sure to open up your nostril by performing exercise as in step (2) & (6)

13. If you drink tea coffee use only small quantity and drink it not too hot or too warm. Drink all hot or cold beverages at leisure and not quick as otherwise they aggravate cough issues. All Hot or Cold beverages must be had slowly and never quick gulp.
14. We use two pronged approach of dilating breathing path & nose airways using carbon dioxide mechanism and also use exercises that dilate nostril path by flexing nose during hold.
15. Also exercise that flex your NOSTRILS will help free breathing path and thus avoid cold issues. You must exhale from mouth also if inhale was done by mouth.
