This book presents a range of simple breathing techniques that have been scientifically shown to be effective in alleviating common stress-related and mood problems, including anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, insomnia, and depression. Drs. Brown and Gerbarg, psychiatrists at Columbia Medical School and New York Medical College, explain how breathing practices positively impact the brain, the stress response, and the communication pathways between the mind and the body. They present fourteen breathing techniques drawn from yoga, neurofeedback (brainwave biofeedback), and qi gong, for addressing specific stress and mood challenges. The enclosed audio program guides readers through the techniques and helps them to make these breathing practices an ongoing part of their daily lives.
