2. Oxygen: Oxygen is necessary for healing.
This is recorded and published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information. Sick patients often wear oxygen masks in treatment. It is an element that produces a calming effect on human beings. (Also likely in mammals across the board, but we’ll stick to the one topic on hand for now, in step with our theme of the singularity of focus here.)
When we focus on our breath, such as in Sama Vritti, or Equal Breathing – where an individual counts through the inhale, and then counts to the equal, or same, number on the exhale, we are giving our bodies the greatest chance of benefit from the air we are breathing. When counting to higher numbers for Sama Vritti, such as eight seconds, we are allowing for the fullest breath we are able to comfortably allow in, with all its oxygen and benefiting elements.
