"Even though I have been practicing in the healthcare field for over 28 years, I was stunned by the data Michael Grant White presented in his Optimal Breathing Manual and DVD.

Breath is life.
ROSETTA STONE: A story of a key
This story involves a slab of black basalt found near the mouth of the Nile in 1799. A decree carved in it in hieroglyphic and Demotic ancient Egyptian writing and Greek provided the key to deciphering of Egyptian hieroglyphics.
Just as the Rosetta Stone was a key to enabling modern people for the first time to translate the ancient Egyptian language, these key breathing development techniques and exercises contained within this material have guided me into simultaneous states of increased energy, mental clarity, emotional calm, physical ease, and expanded breathing freedom.
This new way of breathing has helped re-establish internal balanced breathing integration, wholeness and coordination that had eluded me for over forty years.
