HOME THERAPIES – (for best results, use two or more)
1) **Yogic Breath Technique ('20-20-20' technique):
Inhale, hold, and exhale breath for a count of 20 each. It does not need to be 20. Use whatevercount is comfortable without straining, so long as the inhalation, holding, and exhalation are the same and equal. Repeat the cycle 6 times. Can be repeated throughout the day if needed. Great before bed!
2) Buddha Belly Breathing
Lie on your back with legs up the wall. Place a hand on forehead, the other on abdomen. Take slow deep breaths. On inhalation, fill your belly with air, like filling a balloon. Hold for 3 seconds, exhale completely. Focus the breath low into the abdomen not the upper chest. Continue for 5 minutes.
3) Alternate Nostril Breathing (Pranayama)
Close the right nostril with your thumb, inhale slowly through the left nostril, then close it with th ring finger. Pause. Open and exhale slowly through the right nostril. With the right nostril open, inhale slowly, then close it with your thumb. Pause. Exhale through the left nostril. Once exhalation is complete, inhale through the left. Pause before moving to the right. Repeat this pattern 5-10 times. It may take some practice, but it's worth it!
4) Epsom Salt Baths
Fill your bathtub with 4-5 cups of Epsom salts. Soak for 15-20 minutes. Less potent options: Use 2 cups into a large tub/bucket and soak feet; Take 2 caps of magnesium glycinate 2x a day. Full body soaks can be done 2-3 times a week. Foot soaks or caps can be done daily.
5) ** Essential Oils (EO). Choose any of the following:
Use 3-5 drops onto a hot shower floor, into a diffuser, or into the Epsom salt bath.
Use EO of lavender, ylang ylang, bergamot, and rose geranium. Optional: chamomile or jasmine.
