Dr Air has lots to say and you won’t last long without him.
You will be ok for 6 weeks without food, 3-5 days without water but only 4-5 minutes without air.
You need a constant supply of pure air into your body. Pure, fresh air gives a good appetite, helps improve the blood flow, purifies the blood, refreshes the body, helps digestion of food, helps you sleep soundly and also helps to heal you when you are sick. It also soothes your nervous system and fills your lungs and keeps your voice speaking clearly.
The first thing a baby needs when it is born is to breathe air. Air is “life” to a baby and it is essential right through life. Children should run and play in the fresh air every day if possible. This will help them to be more cheerful, healthier, and happier.
Your home should be kept clean as well as being well ventilated with fresh air. Curtains and drapes should be open to allow sunshine and air in. You should also sleep with windows open at night where possible. The fresh air will help your sleep to be more relaxed and restful.
If some one is sick, their room should not be shut up for them to breathe the same air over and over again. The oxygen in the fresh air will help bring a quicker recovery, helping the blood to cleanse and purify, resulting in greater strength and health – sooner.
Did you ever stop to think that we live at the bottom of an ocean of air that surrounds the earth? But not all this air is good air. Different types of air can energise and relax the mind and body or bring on anxiety, depression and even suicidal feelings.
Air contains positively and negatively charged molecules called ions. Air containing an abundance of negative ions is refreshing, as found in the bush, or by a river, lakes, waterfalls and at the beach or after a rain storm. On the other hand, air containing mostly positive ions as found in city centres, airports, poorly ventilated rooms and on crowded motorways, is associated with headaches, anxiety, insomnia and depression.
The blend of exercise and fresh air are important, because good active exercise increases the demand for fresh air and we naturally breathe more deeply.
Take time out to take a walk in the bush or some other quiet place and do some deep breathing. It will not only lift your chest, but lift your day.
Fresh air and plenty of it will keep your system clean and healthy.
