Take a deep breath!
But what is the science behind the connection between breathing and stress?
How can regulated breathing help you prevent Alzheimer’s disease or cancer?
In this seminal work, Sundar Balasubramanian has documented the scientific basis of yoga breathing techniques from an ancient literature called Thirumanthiram. He describes the importance of salivary biochemicals for a long healthy life.
Sundar Balasubramanian is a Scientist at Medical University of South Carolina, where he applies his subject-matter expertise on cell biology to understand various disease conditions, including cancer. In addition, he is also a Yoga Biology researcher. He deploys cutting-edge scientific tools to unlock the benefits of pranayamam, as well as to promote the well-being. His first-of-its-kind research work exploring the stimulation and detection of salivary proteins in response to yoga breathing – pranayamam – has carved a niche in molecular and cell biology. His research discoveries have been published in highly reputed scientific journals, and he is a frequently invited speaker. Sundar was born in Karambakkudi – Pudukkottai District, Tamilnadu, India – in a family that has been practicing Yoga and Siddha medicine for multiple generations. At a young age, he learnt and perfected various Asanas, Pranayamam, Meditation and Kirtan, and also demonstrated its benefits to the community.
