Controlled breathing is the only automatic bodily function we can control
We have sensors in our lungs that act on the VAGUS NERVE.
This nerve, the longest we have, acts as a neural brake and links all the major organs we have.
Via breathing, the vagus nerve triggered via the lung sensors sends information to our brain and from it back to all the major organs
You might have noticed that when you breathe slowly, your heart rate slows as well
You benefit from the same effect in your entire body and for your cognitive functions.
