There is evidence to suggest that nut trees were grown as a source of human food as early as 10,000 BC, making them one of the earliest crops to be cultivated. Lately, however, nuts have been labelled as ‘fattening’ or, worse still, ‘unhealthy’.

Breathing is an involuntary response, yet deep breathing is a technique that many of us need to learn. When you’re stressed, you only take shallow breaths in the top of your chest. This causes a build-up of carbon dioxide in your lungs, eventually leading to a change in the pH of your lungs, causing acidity and cellular damage. Breathing deeply into your lungs, using your diaphragm muscle as a set of bellows, you encourage gaseous exchange at the base of your lung lobes. This allows for oxygenation of your blood, so the iron molecule can be escorted around your body to nourish cells. Yogic breathing teaches your body to relax, to breathe deeply and to ensure adequate oxygenation, thus nourishing cells and maintaining good energy levels.
