What It Will Do for

This exercise is an excellent way to build stamina, to make the blood suck up the oxygen from the lungs, and to help the heart muscles regulate and reorganize themselves. It will pressurize the kidneys, gonads and adrenals. It is necessary to be able to hold a full inhale for 1 minute in order to supply optimum oxygen to the bloodstream. When less than the required oxygen is available in the blood, the brain, organs and glands are unable to function properly and the systems break down causing ill ness. When this exercise is done for 11 minutes a day or a maximum of 22 minutes, it will totall purify the bloodstream.

It is suggested that if you do it for 22 minutes to take a rest after the first 11 minutes and then continue for 11 minutes more.
