A friend of mine used to practice Kapal Bhati everyday for 10 mins and she had lovely glowing skin. Also even when she put on weight, her stomach always looked toned. She never put on even a bit in her stomach area even when she had gained almost 25 pounds. Her father who is 65 years old also does yoga daily and he is extremely fit and looks like he is 10 years younger. So Kapal Bhati is a very effective way of getting flat and toned abs and looking young.
Initially you should start by doing it only for 1-2 mins because one might feel dizzy or nauseous, but with daily practice you will get used to it. Please find the link attached to get an idea about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1y3ZOCXEX98
Migraines, Constipation, Skin, Immune System
After I started doing kapalbhati pranayam, my migraines reduced, face glows. No more constipation (elimination is very good) and stomach has become flatter). I don't get colds either. Also, I steadily loose weight when I do this regularly.
I practice Kapalbhati Pranayam as taught by swami Ramdev. He says this pranayam is a cure-all. Here is a link to view how the pranayam is done: http://knowyoga.org/tiki-index.php?page=Kapal Bhati Pranayam
hi sandy, even am having constipation and have started doing kapalbahti from 2-3 days how much time does it take to completely cure?
My aunt had melasma. She started ding Kapalbhati pranayam and the melasma reduced within a few weeks and went away completely in a couple of months. In India, yoga master Ramdev Baba's style of doing kapalbhati Pranayam is the most popular. Here is the link to see how it is done:
If you do it, do write back in a month to let us all know if your melasma has faded. Good wishes! (I do kapalbhati everyday for other health benefits and like Ramdev Baba says, it seems to cure all problems.)
I've read all your suggestions and thoughts about melasma. I must admit, this is the most feedback I've seen thus far! I too suffer from this disgusting patchy face look. I have it on my cheeks, forehead and upperlip just like most of you. I've tried creams, OTC and prescription, the only thing that faded was my money! I've tried Apple cider vinegar and currently trying a cream with "tepezcohuite" a mexican remedy. So far its been 3 days and I know I must give it some time, I wanted to wake up and see instant results but thats dreaming. I plan to give it 4-6 months of fair trying. I'll keep you posted on how its working for me. if all else fails, I'm interested in the hydrogen peroxide remedy. Has anybody heard about laser tx? I'm getting desperate that I'm thinking about that route. I'm at my wits end with melasma. I feel people are concentrating on my melasma rather than me
How did the breathing techniques go? Did they help clear up your melanoma? It looks like 2008 was the last time you posted. Hopefully you can give us all an update.
