Reduction of Anxiety and Stress:
The most proven forms of relaxation techniques, like yoga and Tai Chi, advocate the use of controlled, deep breathing to manage stress, anxiety, and panic, and to encourage and promote relaxation. It has been researched that shallow breathing can disrupt the balance between oxygen and carbon dioxide gases in the body, which can worsen stress symptoms and lengthen anxiety duration. In such cases, controlled breathing techniques are recommended to relieve stress.
Relieve Hot Flashes:
The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) says that menopause-linked hot flashes may be relieved using exercises involving slow and controlled breathing exercises.
Reduction of Oxidative Stress:
A study by Martarelli et al (2011) on athletes with normal blood glucose levels shows that deep breathing can reduce oxidative stress that occurs after a meal. The research says that probably due to the activation of the sympathetic nerves in the body, there is reduced production of free radicals in the body (higher antioxidants levels were seen), glucose levels in blood are decreased, and an increase in insulin levels is observed when one takes a deep breath.
The US Department of Veterans Affairs attests to the fact that civilians and army veterans, who have undergone traumatic events and stressful situations (such as being in a war or war zone, or civilian assault) may be able to cope better with posttraumatic stress. They inform that the symptoms of stress, including depression and panic attacks, respond very well to passive relaxation methods like deep breathing.
