  • Whiskey breathing is similar to how a singer breathes. Using the diaphragm air is drawn deep into the lungs quickly then exhaled very slowly. This controlled breathed gets oxygen right down to the base of the lungs which can miss out due to shallow breathing.
    Cheers Gray

  • correction i don’t get the coffee breathing,, you have to inhale to have something to exhale( he says don’t inhale) is there no inhales between the quick exhales? or is it quick exhale, pause quick exhale etc with no inhales between? is it like weight lifters that do quick inhale exhale short ad quick before the big lift of weights??

  • I got lucky because I had my stroke in the hospital (I was a director of finance at a major hospital). I got in my office on Monday at 8 am and couldn’t speak by 8:15 am. I was admitted right there and got MRIs and medication by 3 pm (they made me wait because the ER is busy).
    I thank God because I was inside an hospital and the consequences could have been worse. It’s been 10-11 months (incident happened in 2018) and I am still struggling with speech (I’d say I am 80% there), words, memory, and problems in a couple of cognitive areas. I am 59.

  • I was taught to inhale 4 beats, wait 4 beats, then exhale 4 beats for meditation, works great. You “rest” your lungs a little with every breath.

  • Hello im mary Jane from philippines.. I diagnosed polycythemia vera last week.. And it’s really hard to me accept coz many foods that I really love eat but now that I diagnosed with this its really hard and the adjustment so hard.. Especially what should I to eat.. Please help me po.. I don’t know what food that I can eat.. Hope you gonna help me

  • I am a relatively healthy 20 year old who works out 3x a week and eats very nutritious foods but for some reason I cant take deep breaths. Like breathing in for 4 is genuinely difficult and anything past that is impossible. I dont know if I should go see a doctor for it or maybe do some breathing exercises but I literally cant make it to 5. I am definitely a chest breather which I heard was bad and sometimes I catch myself holding my breath. Any suggestions on what I should do?

  • I’m a little confused about how to do coffee breathing. Are you using quick little “sneeze” exhales and then naturally inhaling a little air while you do this? He didn’t seem to take a breath before so if anyone can help me out here I’d appreciate it!

  • In the 1980s, researchers with the Framingham Study, a 70-year research program focused on heart disease, gathered two decades of data from 5,200 subjects, crunched the numbers and discovered that the greatest indicator of life span wasn’t genetics, diet or the amount of daily exercise, as many had suspected. It was lung capacity. Larger lungs equaled longer lives. Because big lungs allow us to get more air in with fewer breaths. They save the body from a lot of unnecessary wear and tear.

    That’s the first step in healthy breathing: extending breaths to make them a little deeper, a little longer. Try it. For the next several minutes, inhale gently through your nose to a count of about five and then exhale, again through your nose, at the same rate or a little more slowly if you can. This works out to about six breaths a minute.

    When we breathe like this we can better protect the lungs from irritation and infection while boosting circulation to the brain and body. Stress on the heart relaxes; the respiratory and nervous systems enter a state of coherence where everything functions at peak efficiency. Just a few minutes of inhaling and exhaling at this pace can drop blood pressure by 10, even 15 points.

  • SO MUCH COMPLETELY CONTRADICTORY ADVICE ABOUT BREATHWORK,and everybody is like ” my method is right” ( buteyko, different schools of buteyko. Wim hof, soma, yogic, pranayama etc etc etc etc ) as bad as religion. WTF are you supposed to think?

  • Coffee breathing? In India people are doing this for thousands of years. Also for your information It is called as KAPALBHATI Pranayam�� It is taught in Yoga��

  • There is a technical inaccuracy here. Paraphrased: “If we reprofuse the penumbra, those neurons come back.” Reestablishing blood supply is essential, but it will not help unless clinicians help the survivor reestablish cortical control over the returning billions of neurons. This process is reviewed here: http://recoverfromstroke.blogspot.com/2018/03/stroke-is-hellish-cat.html

  • I was diagnosed in 2000 and I’m still kicking but not very high I am 63 use a walker on oxygen 24_7 and many many more health issues very prone to pneumonia.just eat well and keep moving its no fun but don’t give up fight fight fight and believe in the Lord God almighty..

  • A man should live for 120 years. A dog’s lifetime is 10 to 15 years. Why such a huge difference? A dog has shallow and fast breaths. A human’s breath is not shallow and not fast as a dog, but still the breaths are shallow. If one observes his or her breath and practice deep breathing, our life span also increases towards 120 years and also provides healthy life. Let us observe our breaths and practice deep breathing.

  • Amazing work,imagine this is just a small part of yoga btw he’s done a really good job by marketing the whole concept of different types of pranayama by presenting it in an attractive way.

  • Thanks. I really hope Whiskey breathing will work on me as I’m trying hard to relax and to sleep. They’re hard enough even with whiskey.

  • I’m so lucky. I was/am one of his students. He makes everything so simple and easy to understand, no matter how difficult it is. It’s really an art ’cause not every teacher can do that. He’s humble and very friendly. His classes are always funny. He makes everybody feels at ease. Wonderful teacher ������

  • This is great! I really had no idea that there were different forms of breathing for different activities. It makes sense but the way he put it, water, whiskey, and coffee techniques made so much sense. I’m very excited to try these!

  • West is finally evolving and learning what they rejected for centuries only because it came from Indian civilization knowledge system and they had to shame it to occuoy & convert it into their Abrahmic Cult Groups under Vaticans directions. Humanity has lost so much because of unscientific lifestyles and its sellers in the form of missionaries.

  • This is only partial information.. There should also be full expansion until the clavicle rises up and there also specific visualizing that allows the proper directing of the energy being gathered through pranayama, which is what this guy is describing.. It literally thousands of years old.

  • I breathe 60 to 70 breaths per minute while I am jogging in the sand learn to breathe 60 70 breaths per minute don’t stop I live on Kauai I’m 78 years old and I jog in the sand everyday for 2 hours slow and easy 60 to 70 breaths per minute don’t stop for 30 still a race track in your backyard and you too can experience The Missing Link minutes

  • Also try pranayam which actual yoga not the downward dog. Coffee breathing is kapalbhati pranayam. Do this on empty stomach and preferably with proper guidance.

  • Reallyyyy�� we teach ts fr free n india it’s called pranayama, so westerniers learn frm us fr free n make money���� we sld hve patent ������

  • I just suffered a stroke and is going through physiotherapy right now. I’m very interested in your work and more than amazed by the “timely” intervention right after the stroke happened to a patient. I’m hoping that I could setup a similar specialized, comphrehensive and professional stroke treatment for stroke patients and potential people that have a high risk that leads to a stroke attack. Would you be interested in enlightening on the details, necessary procedures and cost involved in setting one in my country? Btw, I’m in Singapore. I look forward to your response. You can reach me at [email protected] gmail.com I really wish to help people with preventive and proactive measures to ensure that they live their lives to the fullest. I’m now regretting my decision of not adopting a healthier lifestyle. I’m firm believer in “preventive” measures rather than a remeditive approach. Your help is much appreciated.

  • I don’t need another lesson on strokes. I didn’t take it serious before I had strokes so now I’m looking for ways to exercise my brain concerning vision and anxiety. I’ve been improving my mobility & strength but how do you work on the brain internally?

  • I’m proud of Grey for going off. But…. I know she was still grieving but, why when it was his fault that Her and Amelia put all the blame on Penny when it was his call. I think the writers overdid the Penny hate.

  • My stroke will be 2years in March my arm still does not work does this mean my arm will never work again due to the dead brain tissue

  • I had a stroke 2011 on the left side of my brain. When I was in the hospital they decided to do a body scan to see if I had blood colts in my leg or traveling in my body. I could move both arms and both legs before the scan. Once the scan finished and I was in the waiting room I felt my body shut down, my right side would not move. I became paralyzed on my right side and needed rehab. Prior to coming to the hospital my balance was off, when I tried to sit on the toilet I would tilt over and fall to the floor. A small portion of my brain was affected but I could still speak even though my stroke was on the left side of my brain. I have recovered about 80% regained walking, movement in hand and arm. I would like to regain more recovery of my right side and would like to participate in a new stroke therapy at Stanford if possible.
