I started doing kapalbahti few days back and in no time i started benefiting immensely. But, off late i find that it has no effect and i have lot of difficulties in clearing my stomch and i feel it has affected my breathing as well.Why is this?...

Another query that i have is,should one make a concious effort to contract the stomach when doing kapalbhati or it happens automatically.And also if you can suggest an ayurvedic laxative. Thank you.

 

I am glad that initially you saw an "IMMENSE BENEFIT" as you said. For your constipation problem, I have a simple solution. After brushing every morning, drink full 2 glasses of "warm water" quickly, then do a few standing twists at your waist. You can also squat on the floor, this would increase the "pressure" right away. You want to increase the amount of salads, fruits and vegetables in your diet. Also make it a point to drink more water everyday. If to relive yourself of your misery right now, you can take take.. Divya Churan (Swami Ramdev ji's Sevakendra). Another Ayurvedic preparation to use regularly for some time to get rid of constipation and rejuvenate your digestive system is - Trifala tablets. To answer your other question, in Kapal bhati you are contracting your stomach gently with each stroke. Keep practicing , keep breathing and keep smiling.
