Benefits of using Breathslim

Benefits of using Breathslim



1.       Weight loss.

Breathslim exercises improve lung ventilation and delivery of oxygen to the blood. They also improve blood stream through capillaries and oxygen supply to the tissues that burns more fat.

2.       Improved sleep.

Slow rhythmical breathing provides relaxation and better, deeper sleep.

3.       Boosts metabolism.

After exercising with Breathslim body receives more oxygen which improves aerobic metabolism in cells. This breathing technique improves lymph circulation and toxins elimination from the body which is very important for safe increase of metabolism.

4.      Exercises with Breathslim are beneficial for new mothers and pregnant women.

It improves venous blood circulation which is a good preventive measure against developing varicosity. These exercises help maintain normal abdominal muscle tone. If a woman can control her breathing it is easier for her to handle pains and relax during delivery. During delivery it is very important to be able to shift the attention from pain to constructive activity – correct breathing. This way a woman can follow doctor’s instructions easier while providing enough oxygen for her baby.

5.       Diaphragmatic breathing with Breathslim program creates light pressure on liver and gall bladder which improves bile flow that dissolves fats coming with food. Movement of diaphragm during the exercise provides deep massage of intestines helping the action of bowels.

6.       Visceral fat is the fat that is accumulated around internal organs and serves as a cushion from shocks and vibration during moving, running or jumping. However excess abdominal fat tissue obstructs blood stream through veins as well as lymph circulation. Too much fat around the waistline also hinders the proper movement of diaphragm which disturbs lung ventilation and oxygen balance in the body. This, in turn, leads to shortness of breath and sleep apnoea. Breathslim restores normal diaphragmatic movement, thus eliminating these negative effects.

7.       Exercises with Breathslim increase oxygen supply to the blood and improve bloodstream through capillaries. This is especially important for brain activity as it uses about 20% of all oxygen coming into the body with inhalation.

8.        For elder people exercises with Breathslim have a great value. They improve lung ventilation which usually goes down with aging. Breathing training increase bloodstream through capillaries and improve lymph circulation which compensates negative effects of physical inactivity in elder people.

9.        Slow rhythmical breathing with extended exhalation cause relaxing effect.  Breathslim increases oxygen supply into brain which helps eliminate emotional stress.

10.       For people with diabetes improvement of oxygen balance increases body’s ability for glucose oxidation. Improved bloodstream through capillaries helps protect patients with diabetes from such serious complications as cataract or diabetic foot.

11.       Breathslim exercise improves breathing regulation, reduce shortness of breath and helps clean air passages. This improves state of health of people with asthma and allows to greatly decrease medicine intake:

12.       The main source of energy in the cells is adenosinetriphosphoric acid. Oxygen is needed for it’s synthesis as it oxidizes food molecules. When lung ventilation improves, oxygen supply improves as well. This allows to oxidize more glucose molecules and produce more energy.

All this is based on more than 15 years of our experience with Frolov’s device in Russia, many researches on different breathing techniques and clinical studies. We can’t claim that we are treating something, we are explaining how Breathslim can help change the way we breathe, which in turn helps in all of the mentioned conditions.

The idea of benefits of correct diaphragmatic breathing is not new, mastering the technique is difficult. So what Breathslim does is because it’s a simple device it helps anyone learn and master this correct type of breathing easier and faster. It provides immediate feedback on whether you are doing it right.



Breathslim gives a second breath to mom and her child

We don’t usually pay attention to the way we breathe. There are very few healthy people who actually practice any kind of breathing gymnastics. Usually it’s just sportsmen who regularly do breathing exercises for a better performance.

But there is another very important group of people who need to learn to control their breathing. These are pregnant women, moms of newborns and women who plan to have children in the near future.

Correct and effective breathing for a normal fetus development can not be underestimated. Future moms need to breathe for two people and provide enough oxygen for themselves and future children.

There are significant changes in the woman’s body during pregnancy that can lead to undesired health problems in the future.

Pregnant woman breathes differently than an average person. Growing uterus moves abdominal organs and diaphragm up that makes it harder for diaphragm to move correctly and as a result, lung ventilation decreases. The body of pregnant woman has to adapt to these changes as the growing baby requires more and more oxygen. However, the unusual location of diaphragm and it’s hindered movement leads to oxygen deficiency that has a negative effect on woman’s nervous and cardio-vascular system as well as on overall fetus development.

Other negative results of changed diaphragm location and activity are hindered activity of liver, gall bladder and intestines which creates discomfort during pregnancy. This can also lead to varicosity development.

Due to these reasons it is essential for pregnant women to perform regular breathing exercises in order to improve lung ventilation, oxygen exchange and metabolism. Special breathing exercises during pregnancy help the body adapt to new conditions quicker and more effectively.

It is important to mention that breathing trainings help relax, release tension and provide soft and natural massage of abdominal organs – this is vital both during pregnancy and delivery.

Another important reason for a woman to learn to control her breath is that breathing is considered to be one of the oldest, safest and most effective ways of easing natural childbirth process. If a woman can control her breathing it is easier for her to handle pains and relax. During delivery it is very important to be able to shift the attention from pain to constructive activity – correct breathing. This way a woman can follow doctor’s instructions easier while providing enough oxygen for her baby.

During the postnatal and breastfeeding period, regular breathing exercises are important for body recovery.  

After childbirth abdominal muscles lose their tone which leads to sagging belly and incorrect location of internal organs.

Another frequent problem that many new moms experience is different psychological problems as there become more worries and anxieties. Some women may even have depression which often leads to more sweets and calories eaten.

Even if during pregnancy a woman had a normal body mass index, during postnatal period the risk of gaining weight is very high. For those women who already had some excess weight before and during pregnancy these risks are even higher and can cause serious health issues.

Therefore, breathing exercises are very important for prevention of such problems and maintaining a good health of moms and their babies especially in case of carrying excess weight.

Breathslim offers a simple and effective program for performing breathing exercises with the use of special device. During these exercises a slow diaphragmatic (yoga) breathing is done. During such exercises abdominal organs receive a natural massage which improves their tone and correct functioning. It also improves blood and lymph circulation.

The main training factor used in Breathslim technique is a resistance to breathing created during exhalation. As a result of this training the air is fully exhaled from the lungs and lung ventilation improves greatly, more oxygen is delivered to blood that improves metabolism.

Regular exercises with Breathslim allow women to learn to control their breathing. Usually exercises are done at night before going to bed which help to relax and get a good night sleep. It is also very convenient as exercises are done at home.

This technique is absolutely safe and the device is made in the USA out of eco-friendly materials. Only clear drinking water is used for the trainings.
