Season 2 Episode 10:: What happens if you don't breathe well? Now, if you don't breathe at all, you're going to pass out! If you breathe super shallowly, you're going to hyperventilate.

Today's episode comes from a recent conversation I had about how we all have Living Pains, and that we tend to just accept them instead of doing the hard work to move past them because so many other things are on fire in front of us already. We often put our aches and pains and not-quite-healed places back into service of our regular lives, at least until a crisis point where we can't go on just getting by. When you're ready to face your Living Pains is where I come in, and I've got your back. Join me at paulasherbals.com for more. | Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig
