Healing from the vaccine with 40 days of pranayama – Yogigems
. . .(* ) In March 2020, I was smacked down with Covid. It was a scary program. I never ever desire that level of disease to take place once again. However when I had an Astra Zeneca jab, it did. The vaccine knocked me right back into that hellish inferno of queasiness, fever and the most agonising body discomforts. The good news is this time it just lasted 3 days. Nevertheless, maybe even worse than the physical signs was the vaccine’s effect on my nerve system. The injury was genuine. As the post-vaccine weeks endured, I was paddling desperately to keep my head above a weird tide of stress and anxiety, anxiety and a Pandora’s box of state of minds and mindsets that I have not come across in years.
BUT, unlike those times past, I have a toolkit to handle the contents of Pandora’s box.
The very best solution for the nerve system? Pranayama. So I dedicated to a day-to-day 31-minute pranayama practice. I divided this practice into 3 parts. The very first 5 minutes were devoted to alternate nostril breathing to bring back balance. Then I transferred to 20 minutes of breath of fire to enhance my immune and nerve systems. I ended up with 5 minutes of kumbhaka on the exhale (inhale, breathe out, hold breath out for as long as comfy and repeat) to seal the practice.
I supported this 40-day pranayama practice with a collection of kriyas for recovering the nerve system, consisting of the Kriya for Nerve, Navel and Lower Spinal Column Strength. This one was advised by the beautiful Marlit to be helpful for the parasympathetic nerve system … it is difficult however extremely rejuvenating. I am likewise still loyally practicing The Women’s Set as I discover it truly assists me get centred and stabilized.
It has actually been 2 months considering that I had the vaccine and I am almost returning to me. I understand the pranayama and kriyas have actually assisted … I’m so grateful to have these tools to raft me through those rocky spots.
Please do contact us if you have had a comparable response … I more than happy to share kriyas and so on to assist.
