Andrew Weil Breathing Exercise

Kristen Sparrow • December 08, 2018

This is a simple exercise that Dr. Weil recommends for anxiety and other conditions.  He recommends twice a day, with 4 repetitions each. He says that it is a way to use voluntary activity to influence the autonomic nervous system and it has been very effective in some of his patients.  He says that it does take a period of time to work though!  Just as in this patient. TAVNS was quite effective over a period of months.
