San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) March 14, 2009
Health experts Donald and Cheryl Lynne Rubbo offer an effective, timely solution to the negative impact the global economic meltdown is having on the health and the decision-making processes of millions of people worldwide. The Extraordinary Breath is a time-proven method of preventive care and self-directed health and stress management.
"We believe that one of the best ways to address the current health crisis is to teach people how to be pro-active in their own healthcare, " says Cheryl Lynne Rubbo, "and we feel so strongly that the Extraordinary Breath will create positive change in our world that we are offering it as a free eBook to download."
Donald and Cheryl Lynne Rubbo, social entrepreneurs, co-founders of Rubbo Art of Energy and authors of Extraordinary Breath, Making the Power of Deep Breathing Work for You, announced today the release of their free eBook 'Extraordinary Breath,' as part of their campaign to bring preventive care to the health-care system worldwide.
"An extraordinary breath is when our intention and our breath are one; with every long, deep and even breath we consciously balance mind, body and spirit," says Elizabeth Meloney, Program Director at Paul D. Pickens II Research Foundation, the parent organization of Rubbo Art of Energy. "Anyone can benefit from this deep breathing practice, anywhere and anytime. The results are immediate, and profoundly calming."
Medical studies show that people who live in a chronic state of anxiety are functioning on reduced capacity, with diminished decision-making abilities. Self-directed methods of stress management have been proven to be highly successful in reducing the symptoms of stress, and actually increase the effectiveness of medical treatments.
"The easy to learn deep breathing techniques developed by the PDP II Research Foundation has literally changed my life. Making this system available to a large number of Americans will prove to be the greatest cost effective, preventative medical program ever enacted," says Ken Fischer, award-winning Sound Effects Editor for feature film post production.
Recent scientific research shows that deep breathing exercises will:
- improve health
- reduce the symptoms of stress
- reduce the symptoms of asthma, respiratory disease, heart disease, anxiety, panic attacks and depression;
- accelerate recovery from surgery
- control pain (including childbirth)
Deep breathing exercises also:
- boost performance in sports for athletes
- give boxers, dancers, golfers and runners greater stamina
- deepen yoga practice and meditation
- enhance abilities for voice and music students
- reduce test anxiety for students and increase attention span, sharpen focus and improve memory.
Human beings, on average, take about 20,000 breaths per day. By merging intention - shifting from negative modes of thinking to positive modes - with every deep inhalation and exhalation during waking moments, one can heighten and direct the changes desired in body, mind and spirit.
"We believe that preventive medicine is the best medicine, and the mind/body stress management system of 'Extraordinary Breath' will increase the health, work-productivity and confidence of our global community," says Cheryl Lynne Rubbo.
The free Extraordinary Breath eBook will soon be available in these languages: Hebrew, French, Romanian, Spanish and Italian, and many more.
