Five powerful effectts you surely did not know about right nostril breathing

(Have used the ardhanareshwar image, because it is often used to illustrate the Right-Left nostril/brain balancing in yogic breathing practices)

I have purchased this exciting book Yoga As Medicine  by Timothy McCall,M.D.( a Yoga Journal book) and this is what I found out. Many of you already know that right nostril breathing stimulates the left brain, and therefore verbal skills, and also stimulates the sympathetic nervous system.

But here is more:
* Increases blood sugar levels
*Increases blinking rate
* Decreases eye pressure
* Increases heart rate.
*Inflates right lung preferentially.
