"Of mine asked me casually walks happening inside the body when you do a breath work session and i thought that this is a really interesting question which needs to be answered on my podcast as well. So firstly the type of breath work. That i am trained in scart breath which withdraws from yoga i am so. It's not just one breathing technique but a variety of techniques that use depending on the outcome that i'm trying to achieve but basically here's what happens within a few minutes. You expedients what i call freeing up of consciousness freeing up off consciousness and what i mean by that is during the day our body is usually in a standoff fight or flight. Animals have this automatic with of releasing stress by shaking. And you might see a dog or even bear sometimes just shaking right because it is their natural way of relieving stress but humans don't have that automatic response and we need to do something manually to switch off that stress response and we are in the state of fight or flight. Our blood flow is focused in and around our limps. Your blood pressure is up. Garda's all levels cortisol is your stress hormone but your stress hormone levels are high. Your heart rate is high. And your blood vessels will there constricted. Now keep in mind that you don't really have that predator. Are that attacker in front of you and your most likely not in martyr danger but your constant talks about the future are something that has happened to the best keeps haunting you and keeps you battles d- in the state of fight or flight and because your entire physiology is in the state it feels like your consciousness is also trapped and on high alert being in the state is like stepping on the gas pedal. It does have a bogus. But if you don't switch off that stress it can take a toll on your health in the long run. So when you sit down and engage in certain types of breeding techniques. Your heart rate lowers your blood pressure. Goes down your blood vessels dilate. You're cortisol levels. Go down and your blood moves away from your limbs and towards your oregon's and nourishing your brain as well now when this happens you feel so relaxed and if feels though your consciousness is liberated you have the sense of abundance and possibility because you're no longer stuck to the bust or what about the future. Does that make sense. So that's number one number. Two is hot coherence activation now heart. Coherence is a state. When your heart is sending ardently stable batons vibe ration- across your body that have a harmonising relaxing effect on your entire physiology growing up. We've been dark that the brin is the mazda system right. It's a central system that sort of sends orders to other parts of the body including the heart but recent research by the heart. Math institute suggest that the heart actually sends more signals to the brain than the other way around and these signals influence. Your thought process your focus your memory whether it's short term long term your ability to connect with your intention all of that now. The interesting thing is that when you breathe in your body goes into fight or flight you're sympathetic. Branch of your nervous system is located which means that your heart rate goes up when you breathe out on the other. Hand your bada sympathetic branch off. Your nervous system gets activated. Which is the arrest and digest system so the opposite happens you heart goes down. Your blood vessels dilate so think about it. All it is happening between your in hill and your exile so you're breathing on actually affects the signals. That your heart is sending to the bridge. So if you're breathing pattern is haphazard and it take guesswork the signals that you're sending do brin and other parts of your body are also confusing an erratic and this baton affects your mood. It affects your thinking. It affects how you react to your environment. It affects your actions that you take but if you use the right breathing practice you engage in the right breeding style. You allow your heart to enter into a state of hot coherence which results in an overall body harmony. So that's number two number. Three is vagus nerve activation. Now doing breakthrough accessions. I include certain mantras and mantra humming is interesting because every month Has a specific purpose are an objective and these mantras have been used in india for at least eight thousand years when you a mantra. You feel good all over your body because of the web rations but only recently have. They discovered that humming along with extending your eggs. Eels is actually the most effective way to relax your body. And activate your rest and digest system because humming. A mantra stimulates your vagus nerve. Which is the longest nova in your body connecting many internal organs from your stomach. Deal your brain stem and the term vagus stems from vaga bond. Which literally means that. This nerve is so long that it is connected to the integral oregon's and parts of your body so when you stimulate this nerve using the humming and by extending your eggs emails it sends a signal across your body a harmonizing signal to unwind and let go and especially for someone who just wants to get a good night's rest. This is so effective because it can put you to sleep within minutes. Which is why. I had all my breath work. Attendees do not try these meditations while driving are when you are in water because it's powerful and these practices have to be treated with respect and performed in the right setting action tribe. Are you finding it. Hard to distress and unwind in the midst of this crazy pandemic. Come join us for a soothing. Relaxing breath workstation. Online on zoom duty.

"Host A. Giant Kumar along. LemMe ask you a question. How many dachshunds do you think you get exposed to on a daily basis? Take a wild guess. Give you a couple of seconds. Think about it. You come across dachshunds through your breathing through your food through the stuff that you use at your home at you workers and the many ways that you interact with your environment according to an article written by Dr John Coppola from the San Antonio neuropathy center. Modest estimates have suggested that we aren't explores to more than seven hundred, thousand different toxic chemicals on A. Daily basis and according to the global. Healing. Center it isn't abnormal to be exposed to over two point one, million dachshunds each and every day two point one million dachshunds research from the University of California shows how the average person is being exposed to cancer this levels of toxins like our cynic dioxins and delete these dachshunds aren't only made available to our body organs blood and. Sales when we eat and drink them but especially through our breathing, my name is Aj host of my seven Chuckers, any certified breath work instructor, and doing a lot of studying, experimenting, practicing, and sharing especially over the last couple of months when the pandemic began and I'm going to share with you some surefire ways that you can use to eliminate the sins through the power of. Your breathing so that you can boost your immunity but before I continue to question to please hit the subscribe button especially if you're on your iphone or hit the follow button if you're listening on spotify because this does something to the podcast garden that ensures that people who wouldn't normally come across this episode actually come across it. So please hit subscribe are hit the Follow Button Right now, and let's get started step number one always ensure you are breathing in Serie knows recently asked a few friends how they breathe and many of them tour me that the breathe in and out through their out and I don't really blame them because we don't have a breath work glass in school to teach us how to breathe correctly when you breathe in through your mouth, you're actually breathing in a lot of oxygen. And guess what oftentimes you don't need that much oxygen in fact, do much oxygen can. Be Detrimental to your health just like when you please a piece of iron out in the air, it gets arrested due to exposure your tissues and organs can suffer a similar diet of. Gaul oxidative damage due to oxygen or exposure. Mud breathing can lead to other issues such as Porsche, auto immune issues, chronic stress, and all of this can actually affect your entire outlook on life and your sense of confidence in your sense of happiness. Right the solution is to breathe in through your nose breathing in through your nose firstly ensures that you regulate the amount of. That you are taking. Because you see, you got filters in your news there ensure that these toxins endured to a great extent get filtered off, which is it full first line of defense. And because of the unique structure of your news, it actually warms up the air before it is taken up by your body, which does wonders for your ability to use the oxygen for energy production, and here's the icing on the cake when breathe through your nose. You create something or nasal nitric oxide, which increases are deal oxygenation and reduces blood pressure in the lungs. One study shored that nasal breathing increased tissue oxygenation by ten percent when compared to mouth breathing nasal nitric oxide acts as our bodies first line of defense against airborne. By sterilizing incoming air then as a nitric oxide travels into the lungs, it reduces blood pressure redistributes blood flow and increases gas exchange leading to greater arterial oxygenation, and what this means is that the oxygen that you breathing is effectively transmitted into your cells where energy is produced. So breathing in through your nose is really really beneficial. Do. When you're breathing, breathe all the way. Deal your belly. is you most people breathe shallow their chest? And this type of breathing is associated with chronic stress and anxiety. But when you breathe deep multiple things happen. Firstly, breathing deeply stimulates the lymph nodes and assists with lymph drainage or does that will lymphatic system is the sewage system of the body where debris dachshunds are collected and then eliminated from the body. But unlike heart and that is constantly pumping your blood, the lymphocytic system needs stimulation and guess what diaphragm attic breathing that you do. That increases the rate of elimination as much as fifteen times. Now, the other reason why you must breathe all the way down to your belly and die from is that when your diaphragm moves up and down in deep breathing, it stimulates the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve is the VAGA bond nerve its longest nerve that stocks, the brain stem and goes all the way down your toward your Chaz your stomach. So when this nervous activated your rest and digest phase of your nervous system gets activated allowing your body to focus on immune building and rest also. When you breathe deeply and consciously and all the way to your belly you are promoting blood circulation, which is another way by which your body detox is and eliminates west. Now the way that you know that your belly breathing is if you place, you're right bomb and the center of your chest and your left bomb or your belly, and in fact, you can do it right now. But not if you're driving but just do as I said, right bomb at the center of a chest left bomb will we Abedi and then breathe in deeply? Oh. In three knows. outremont. Now. If your belly inflates like a balloon along with the the rising off your chest and your.

"And need more more than that on this guy. Erode Vaga bonding. Ralph yeah pots. Yeah thanks so you know I. I kind of like his way of analyzing things and and he's got some insight. I think Gary Aren't he has set off to look for. I think all the national parks in America or something like that. So He's you know he's folk like about Gary is that he didn't know Jack Shit about taking photographs when he started and now he's won awards for his photography. So I kind of self taught and I respect him for having done that There as far as blogs are concerned. It's not travel blog but I always enjoyed weight but y dot com. I don't know that one. What is that about? It's not a travel blog. It's it's a guy who writes really long blog posts there. Some of them are very funny anyway. He's one of the few bloggers actually kind of fall. Tim Ferriss Has Some useful ideas I think for people like us who WanNa travel extensively you know how to build a business on the side that gives you some sort of passive income Tim Ferriss and setting goals. He's good at that that kind of stuff. A lot of people think he's a little bit of a weasel maybe is but overall. I think he's got his got some good tips. I think overall so. I sometimes pay attention to his block. It if you're interacting with people on social media or someone that you're just meeting random way you have like a golden rule piece of advice for travelers like some wisdom that you would impart on them just a regular people. Why don't we do on for a two categories so average person and then more the senior traveller? Okay just advice. The average person is kind of what I need to way back at the conversation where I was just saying. A lot of people have an excuse that they can't travel because they think they don't have enough money or time but I encourage people to just explore their own area wherever you may live. Draw a big circle radius of one hundred kilometers two-under kilometers or maybe even five climbers and just explore that area around. You wherever you happen to live and you'll be surprised and when you export don't just like see the sights doc. People Get Stories. Meet PEOPLE. And that can be fulfilling for the advanced traveller. I don't know if I could teach anything or adviser anything to the advanced travel. They usually a lot So I'm not sure if I could but I I would say that I get ready for West and middle Africa. I think they're tough looking at your website. I it looks like you have one unique philosophy that you employed successfully and you drove thousands of kilometers across Africa in your own truck in my understanding. Is You picked up hundreds and hundreds of hitchhikers across Africa on your journey that might seem a little counter intuitive in terms of safety and security. What's Your Fos iffy on this? Why did you do this as a great question? Rick so I actually gave Ted talks about this. It said seven lessons. I learned seven surprising lessons. Learned from picking up three thousand African hitchhikers and the lessons. I mean I guess you gotTa Listen To Tech Stock It'll be published soon. Probably by the time this airs. summarizes the seven lessons and some of the anecdotes from that thing. But part of the reason is that one of things. I dislike about driving in a car when you're traveling is that it's a bubble and a lot of times when we go to quote unquote dangerous places like Afghanistan or Somalia. Whatever we're in a car and says protective little bubble that we're in and we just get shuttled from place to place. We don't ride public transportation and and we don't walk from place to place and I was afraid of doing that with Africa because I didn't want to be isolated from the Africans. The whole point of my books is a try to understand the cultures of the places that I'm traveling and so my way to combat. That was to pick up bunch of hitchhikers. 'cause I figured this way I'll learn about the Africans themselves by just meeting them hanging out with them. They often invited me to their home after I dropped him off. Whatever and it was a wonderful way to do it. The other thing is that it gives you security There's safety in numbers. And obviously if you pick up the wrong hitchhiker. Then it's not secure but let's say pick up one person and then I pick up a another woman and then I pick up another guy so now Olson. Let's say the third person is like a thief or jerk or whatever You know criminal well Olsen. He's in a car with three other Africans with him. He's not GonNa do anything to me. So you're just playing the numbers game that maybe. I won't get assaulted by because most people are and as a result if I pick up a bunch of checkers when that one bad apple shows up he's probably going to be surrounded by a bunch of good apples. A love. This theory so people are inherently good. So as you're saying if ninety five percent of people are inherently good and five percent of the bad apples you've in essence increased your safety and security by having more random strangers in your car at the same time so again. If you're using those statistics what are the odds. That the three people you randomly pick up all happen to be bad actors right right and the network for me. That's awesome. I I really find that pretty fascinating and and it seems like a very sound theory. I don't I I know. This is near impossible with three thousand hitchhikers. Go back in time in. Bring us into your car. Where you've picked up two or three or four random guys or woman Bring into that scene. Would I mean tell us a story or anecdote of random car ride with a couple strangers? That was funny or memorable or interesting. quite a few of them to to think about. I do remember one time. It was one of those in Guinea I guess the I was just regular Guinea and I picked up. It was near the end of the day and they would ask me where I would stay out. I'm just going to camp somewhere. He's okay. Why don't you come stay with my family? And I stayed with the man who was a bigamist so he had two wives and had two houses and they're facing each other. It was just such a fascinating experience because he was he had. Maybe about twenty children. Arnold seemed that way Just relatives I would say. Twenty relatives may be ten children running around in his two wives And they would serve me dinner. It was all dark no electricity. We're just by candlelight or our flashlight and they treat me like royalty they give me. Everybody eats off of one plate. But because I was the guest gave me my own personal plate to eat out of and I got to see them play checkers or something. Similar game two checkers Outta is such a simple thing but I was just blessed that Y I couldn't have this experience anywhere else and in my Ted Talk I tell about the one really bad experience I won't share the whole thing but it's basically happened in the DRC. Were where somebody did actually tried to steal from me. But the two people who stole from me was in Rwanda one was in the Congo. Those two individuals. I caught them and they eventually got the money. Back in both cases so I never really and that was only because rejoice was putting your person the back seat which was really stupid and when we before rejoice came into my life nobody had ever stolen from me at all period and it was only because she is starting to put her person in the backseat. Which was of course tempting to an African just sitting there next to purse so eventually she stopped doing that So the thefts went away. Okay so that can be your another piece of advice Besides exploring the near community where you live. Don't put the person in the backseat. There you go. It's funny I I would always say like why do you do that? She's like well. I feel like it's my house. This car is my house at like. Why would somebody come into my house and steal for me? I'm helping them out. I'm like you know we're helping them out and giving the Murad anyway. Whatever it Francis. I know you're whether it's the beginning or the middle of your continued journey but looking back whether it's South America or Europe or Africa. What are you most proud about? If you're if you're looking at your travel is a career. Would you going to point to? Which would you most proud of that? You've done and the Travel World I. I'm pretty happy overall about my trip to Africa. This one that we've been talking about you know to me. That's kind of unusual accomplishment because there's been many people I'm sure you've interviewed many of the people who have been all the African countries but there's very few who kind of systematically go through them. Climb the tallest peak and that kind of stuff and just do that without leaving the continent at any point. That was pretty unusual. So in that sense I feel happy about Vata Collision Francis. I listened to your podcast. I believe you recently had a a recap twenty nineteen episode also a forecasting episode and in that forecast. You said at some point. I'm going to finish one ninety three. So let's talk about your next goal your next bucket list. You're at one hundred twenty. Un countries. What's your future? Hold in the world of travel so as we talked about before like a big regions and so my next big region is kind of West and Central Asia which includes all the stunts as well as the Middle East and the Gulf states. So that will be my next big chunk and I hope to do that. Next year and there's about twenty five countries there and then after that so is that twelve months twenty five months. It's I I I would like to do it. In twelve months. I would like to do twelve months Because frankly I don't really like societies that segregate men and women and a lot of the Middle East. Does that from my understanding? Maybe I'm wrong. But it seems that they don't intermingle as much as they do. In other societies. So that's one thing that makes me want to just go through relatively quickly. But maybe I'm sure I'll find something that I really like and enjoy about the place all I if if I have to make one prediction once you hit there. It's not going to end up being twelve months. The that's going to be twenty four months. Yeah well my Africa trip was supposed to be three years five years And My Eastern Europe was supposed to be one year turned into so yes. I have a bad record of doing this. But this time I'm married and my wife doesn't want me to be away for that long she's.

So that will be my next big chunk and I hope to do that. Next year and there's about twenty five countries there and then after that so is that twelve months twenty five months. It's I I I would like to do it. In twelve months. I would like to do twelve months Because frankly I don't really like societies that segregate men and women and a lot of the Middle East. Does that from my understanding? Maybe I'm wrong. But it seems that they don't intermingle as much as they do. In other societies. So that's one thing that makes me want to just go through relatively quickly. But maybe I'm sure I'll find something that I really like and enjoy about the place all I if if I have to make one prediction once you hit there. It's not going to end up being twelve months. The that's going to be twenty minutes. Yeah well my Africa trip was supposed to be three years five years And My Eastern Europe was supposed to be one year turned into three years so yes. I have a bad record of doing this. But this time I'm married and my wife doesn't want me to be away for that long she's.
