Welcome to this episode of "How Breathwork Reduces Stress in Fertility" with your host Carolina Sotomayor. Today, we have a special guest, Heather Graham Murphy, who will be sharing her expertise on how breathwork reduces stress in fertility. Heather is a certified breathwork facilitator and coach, with her experience in guiding individuals towards greater health and well-being.
In this episode, Heather introduces us to the world of breathwork and how it can help in reducing stress levels in fertility. She explains that breathwork is a form of mindfulness practice that involves deep, rhythmic breathing techniques to increase oxygen flow to the body and reduce stress levels. Heather emphasizes that breathwork can have a positive impact on fertility as stress levels have been known to impact fertility negatively.
Heather discusses how breathwork can help us reduce stress by calming the nervous system and activating the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the "rest and digest" response in the body. She explains that this can lead to a reduction in cortisol levels, the hormone associated with stress, and a sense of relaxation and calmness.
Heather also shares some simple breathwork techniques that we can incorporate into our daily routine to help reduce stress levels in fertility. She guides us through a couple of techniques that involve breathing deeply and rhythmically, holding the breath, and exhaling slowly. Carolina and Heather practice these techniques together, and Heather explains how to adapt them to our unique needs.
Overall, this episode is a fantastic resource for anyone looking to reduce stress levels in fertility using breathwork techniques. It provides insights into how breathwork can positively impact our mental and physical health, and offers practical tips for incorporating it into our daily routine. So tune in and join Carolina and Heather on this insightful journey towards greater health and well-being.
