How Functional Breathing Can Improve Your Mental Health
By: Nevsah Karamehmet
Mental Health is increasingly becoming one of the most treated themes in modern society, but it used to be the biggest taboo and non-talked-about issue for a very long time. According to statistics, mixed anxiety and depression are the most common mental disorders in Britain, with 7.8% of people meeting criteria for diagnosis.
Functional breathing is the ultimate frontier to improve our mental health and wellbeing, as it is proved to affect our emotions and change our psychological behaviour.
Nevsah's aim is to change lives, one breath at a time. Her work is focused on functional breathing and how it can help to eliminate over 250 mental health issues such as stress, anxiety and even depression.
"We see that there is a need of taking a deep breath, which is a dysfunctional breathing habit, in people diagnosed with anxiety disorder and depression. We know that this is the exact underlying cause of why the disorder begins, progresses and becomes permanent. Where absence of respiration is caused by a real problem in your lungs or heart; air hunger is mostly a psychological problem." – says Nevsah Karamehmet, President of the International Breath Coaching Federation.
Over 20 years ago, Nevsah established breath coaching as a profession in Turkey, paving the way for many: she has since then trained over 10,000 breath coaches from around the world and inspired over 100,000 individuals, becoming a pioneer in helping people learn about their functional breathing habits.
Nevsah will be present at the Mind Body Spirit Festival from Friday 24th May until Monday 27th May 2019 in London Olympia and will provide the visitors with private breath sessions and detailed breath analysis with biofeedback by capnotrainer.
