Qigong Breathing Exercise May Help Weight Control

May 23, 2017 -
The Journal of evidence-based complementary & alternative medicine published a new study investigating whether a modified Qigong breathing exercise can reduce the sense of hunger and identify possible mechanisms.

The results from the test group, which performed the exercise, are compared with the control group, which performed deep breathing. Intestinal pressure measurements, stomach pH monitoring, and participant surveys were used for assessment.

Stomach pH was increased by 3 and intestinal pressure was reduced by 12 mm Hg in the experimental group and did not change significantly in the control group. The study provides strong evidence that the Qigong breathing exercise can significantly reduce, or even suppress the sense of hunger on an empty stomach.

This breathing exercise provides comfort in different circumstances, such as lack of regular meals, limited volume or caloric diet, and even during temporary complete absence of food in therapeutic fasting.
