Research Shows Bhramari Breath Can Increase Survival Rate in COVID-19 Infection
Bhramari, or Humming Bee Breath, with Extended Exhale has been proven to have significant effects in treating COVID-19.
Symptoms of COVID-19 are mainly upper respiratory, leading to viral pneumonia and multiple organ failure involving kidney, lung and heart along with coagulopathies. During the SARS 2004 pandemic, the gas molecule nitric oxide reversed pulmonary hypertension, improved severe hypoxia and shortened stays in ICU on ventilator support.
Bhramari Breath dramatically increases the uptake of Nitric Oxide in the Lungs by 15 fold, while the Extended Exhale reduces the level of carbon dioxide. The genetic composition of COVID-19 is similar to SARS-CoV, thus indicating a good chance of effectiveness.
Why Is Nitric Oxide So Important?
NO is a key biological messenger which plays an important role in various biological processes at the cellular level. It is a relaxing factor, with anti-inflammatory properties and contributes to the body's defence against bacteria, viruses, fungal and parasitic infections. It improves the oxygen uptake in the lungs and provides relief from bronchial asthma. NO inhibits viral protein and RNA (like DNA for a virus) and reduces the replication of carbon dioxide.
Bhramari Breath increases the uptake of Nitric Oxide and acts as a sonic cleanser of the respiratory tract. The sound vibrations increase the vital capacity.
