  1. HI Amit Popat Misal

    I’m so glad that you are informing people that bad breath today is mostly from stomach gases.

    In this country most people brush their teeth regularly buy gallons of mouth wash, and still have bad breath.

    I learned some years ago that it was comming from their stomach, but it’s no easier to tell someone they have bad breath with that knowledge.

    I think there are some other yoga poses that would help with breath also. Maybe everyone should spend less money for mouth wash and more on yoga products?

    1. Thanks Mike for visit to my site and your feedback,”Simhasana” meaning the Lions pose which is very simple to do and does not take much time and efforts is a cure in Yoga for this problem.You can have a look at the video in the article for the same

  2. Wow, I never even thought of stomach acids causing bad breath. I know this sounds very petty but since I am a teacher, it is increasing difficult to deal with a child first thing in the morning who clearly did not brush their teeth. Maybe I need to be more mindful and not jump the gun. I will be using this position in my classroom and maybe during my prep time! Stress relief and self-care are always important!
