The health of the central nervous system of our bodies is heavily dependent on the cerebrospinal fluid, which is one of the two fluid compartments of the brain along with interstitial fluid. With the advancement of technology and many research efforts put together by various fields of people, it has been detected that multiple forms and techniques of yogic breathing can help better function the central nervous system that regulates many parts of our bodily functions, especially the brain.
Understanding the mechanisms that drive the cerebrospinal fluid movement, which enhances and influences the removal of waste products from the brain, is a substantial clinical impact.
The wellness of the body and mind encompasses various therapies like yoga, meditation, Tai Chi, and several other relaxation techniques. Yogic breathing has been the most identified and integrative approach for overall health and well-being in the 21st century.
Yogic breathing consists of various breathing techniques practiced with mindfulness, attention focus, and conscious control with a sustainable breathing pattern. Since one of the critical aspects of yogic breathing is to take slower, deeper, and rhythmical breaths, it has many self-controlling mechanisms with health benefits. Spinal fluid flow problems are sensitive to respiratory agents. Thus, yogic breathing can influence it, keeping its function correct.
Selda Yildiz, John Grinstead, Andrea Hildebrand, John Oshinski, William D. Rooney, Miranda M. Lim, and Barry Oken digs deeper to discover the benefits of yogic breathing on spinal fluid flow problems in a scientific report article on Nature.
