Some theory claims that besides external breathing via lung, nose or mouth, there has yet another kind of breathing called internal breathing. I think this kind of breathing, not in the least via lung and nose, refers to embryonic breathing. Do you think it is right?
The internal breathing you mentioned has relationship with embryonic breathing but they are different. As opposed to external breathing, internal breathing accompanies people’s whole life from birth to death. The two kinds of breathing complement each other and once any of them function not properly the whole body system would be subject to morbidity. Internal breathing works as the very foundation for accomplishing the combination of both mind and breathing which plays the vital role in Taoist internal alchemy practice.
