"The Diaphragm: The Muscle Source of Life" 
- A Revolutionary Approach to Understanding Our Body

Reviewed by: Ben Howard

Rating: 9.5/10

As a reviewer, it's not often that I come across a book that genuinely offers a fresh perspective on a topic as ubiquitous as human health. "The Diaphragm: The Muscle Source of Life" by Rasheem J Northington is one such rarity.


Northington, a United States Marine Corps (USMC) Veteran with a Master's Degree in Adolescent Education in Chemistry and a Bachelor's Degree in Biochemistry, brings a wealth of knowledge to this work. His background in Biochemistry and practices of Qi Gong Stance Training, coupled with his passion for Chemistry, Physics, and the human body, make him the perfect guide to explore the role of the diaphragm in maintaining life.


The book is a fascinating exploration of the diaphragm, a muscle often overlooked despite its critical role in our bodies. Northington skillfully explains how this muscle, controlled by both the autonomic and somatic nervous systems, sustains life by managing the flow of oxygen and the removal of metabolic wastes from our bodies.


What sets this book apart is its universal relevance. Whether you're an athlete, a breathing practitioner, or someone leading a sedentary lifestyle, the insights offered in this book will be of immense value. Northington's writing style is engaging and accessible, making complex concepts easy to understand for readers from all walks of life.


The book goes beyond mere theory, offering practical exercises to strengthen the diaphragm and maximize its function. These exercises, which can be practiced just about anywhere, are a testament to Northington's commitment to empowering readers to take control of their health.


Perhaps the most compelling aspect of the book is its exploration of the diaphragm's role in supporting the heart, lungs, and brain function. Northington convincingly argues that by focusing on the diaphragm, we can increase our health, power, longevity, and spirituality. This holistic approach to health is both refreshing and inspiring.


In conclusion, "The Diaphragm: The Muscle Source of Life" is a unique, enlightening, and empowering read. It is a testament to Northington's deep understanding of the human body and his ability to convey complex concepts in an engaging manner. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone interested in enhancing their understanding of their body and taking control of their health.
