Controlling Our Physiology Through Our Breathing W/ Niraj Naik
Today we are joined by Niraj Naik. Niraj is a certified former pharmacist turned holistic health and breathwork expert. Having cured himself of Ulcerative Colitis, he is dedicated to helping others restore their health and improve their overall quality of life with holistic practices and lifestyle changes.
Niraj is also a professional musician and has produced therapeutic music that is used in wellness centers and spas internationally. He is also the founder of SOMA Breath, the global breathwork movement taking the world by storm.
I wanted to have Niraj on the show because breathwork is something I've experimented with and had really interesting and positive results. Many of you know that I'm trying to do the Wim Hof method breathing exercises every single morning and I find that I'm healthier and happier when I do. So, I wanted to learn from someone who is in the field what some other options for breathwork are, and try to understand how I can use my breath the same way that other people use pills and medication to treat different ailments or feel certain ways.
I think this episode definitely delivers on that promise. I actually learned a lot about the different things that I can do to control my physiology using nothing but my breath. Please enjoy!

Thanks, I learned a lot of interesting things in past episodes.
loved th heart and the depth of the conversation. The way that Dr. Metivier shared from his enormous experience and insights was just amazing. Thank you Jonathan for doing this podcast!! 🙂
Great interview with Dr. Greg Wells! He mentioned a doctor from Colorado around the 42:30 point of the podcast, discussing turmeric and black pepper. I couldn’t make out the doctor’s name. Can you provide me with his full name and maybe his website or contact info. Interested in his products.
I am new here, and learning really fast.
Maybe oarts of the things he has to share are right, maybe not. If I look at him which impact his nurturing and living style has on himself I see a very old looking man! He is year 1973!! That is not old and he looks definitly much older!! If I would not know his birthyear I would guess that he is in his mid-60ies!! A bit concering for someone who claims his lifestyle is suitable for a long life, isn’t it?
