In today’s show, Pancham interviews Dr. Amy Novotny - a physical therapist, pain specialist, and founder of PABR Institute.

One of the things that we tend to ignore when we’re busy achieving our goals is prioritizing our own health. Today’s episode will specifically focus on how we breathe - the one aspect of health that we tend to overlook. With Dr. Amy’s mission to provide natural remedies for those suffering from pain, she has been treating people by simply telling and teaching them how to breathe!

In this episode, discover the importance of shifting our breathing mechanism right as she shares why we tend to not realize that we don’t breathe, how there are so many more benefits in breathing, and how it can eliminate stress! She’ll also help you live a pain-free life as she breaks down the proper breathing method into 4 steps, and why doing it with other activities can help improve your health!

Listen and enjoy the show!



“There's a part of the rehabilitation world that we weren’t reaching everyone and so I started studying our nervous system differently, studying how we breathe differently.”

3 Key Points:

  1. Breathing the right way is vital to our health as not doing it properly could lead to stress, anxiety, and could impact our nervous system and how our muscles work.
  2. Since our body loves to develop habits, we tend to have new habits when we’re in a stressed state which would then negatively impact ourselves.
  3. The key to correcting our breathing is to have our ribcage in a correct position to be able to calm down our nervous system and use the diaphragm - the correct breathing muscle.
