Interesting facts - what happens in our body when we YAWN

Although it may seem obvious given how little is known about yawning, it is likely a fallacy that yawning always indicates a desire for sleep.

It is true that people frequently yawn before going to bed at night, but it is also true that people yawn when they first wake up in the morning, several times throughout the day, and even when they notice someone else yawning. These factors include your level of alertness or concentration, how distracted you are, and how much time has passed since you last yawned.

Old theories on yawning are predicated on the idea that it is a reflex response to low oxygen or high carbon dioxide levels since breathing brings oxygen from the air into the lungs and removes carbon dioxide. After a study was published in 1987 showing that volunteers exposed to high oxygen levels did not yawn less and volunteers exposed to high carbon dioxide concentrations did not yawn more, the idea started to lose some credence.


Why does yawning spread quickly?

When someone vows to abstain after witnessing another person do so, it is often due to the power of suggestion. Yawn contagiousness might be an automatic, genetically programmed behavior if the hypothesis of nonverbal group communication is accurate, as it seems to be for baboons. 

What happens inside of us when we yawn?

When we yawn, we actually cause a wave of spinal fluid to release from the brain, which travels through our entire central nervous system (CNS) and down the back of our neck (occipital region).

Some people describe this release as a wave in their ears that feels like “liquid” or “thunder.” Curiously, this is the same sound that we can hear before on-set astral projection or astral travel while we are in a lucid or sleepy condition.


Can yawning indicate a medical condition?

Although it may be difficult to accept, yawning may indicate disease. Excessive yawning has been noted in patients that were dealing with Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, often known as Lou Gehrig’s disease), as well as after radiation therapy. It may occasionally signal the beginning of a migraine. On the other hand, those who have schizophrenia appear to yawn less frequently. It is yet unclear why this occurs.

Researchers have found that electrical stimulation of specific brain regions can promote yawning in both humans and animals. Additionally, yawning also appears to be influenced by some brain chemicals, notably dopamine.

The condition that usually disables young adults is multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis affects about 2.3 million people globally. Although the precise causes of the illness are unknown, it is most likely brought on by a complex interaction of genetic, environmental, and viral events. Lesions of multiple sclerosis are believed to be the outcome of an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system mistakenly views the myelin of the central nervous system as foreign and launches an attack to destroy it. The central nervous system is permanently damaged as a result of this procedure.

Although yawning typically indicates a lack of sleep and the appearance of exhaustion, it occasionally indicates other health issues.

Complementary medicine is the best way to identify any problems you may be experiencing.

Many patients use Quantum Biofeedback to identify problems from the worst ones to the smallest, most insignificant ones.

In comparison to what is revealed by X-rays and blood tests, the information offered by the biofeedback device is fundamentally different.

The gadget, NUCLEUS or Ed-X then compares all of these results to the accepted standards in the database to determine the quantities of vitamins, nutrients, minerals, enzymes, carbohydrates, toxins, hormones, bacteria, fungi, and viruses as well as the health and balance of internal organs. In fact, the tool finds anything that has an impact on one’s condition of health.

The thyroid gland is immediately impacted by fatigue and stress, which causes it to grow, press against the airways, and cause lumpy sensations in the throat (such as when we want to cry), respiratory failure (sighing, choking), a dry cough, and even yawning.

Some people even resort to utilizing medicines to deal with these symptoms, obviously without success. Only when an infection is acute and after passing certain tests, should antibiotics be administered. Antibiotics not only kill “bad” bacteria but also “good” germs that are essential to the body’s defense mechanism. As a result, immunity declines, which can cause a wide range of negative effects and diseases.


It is crucial to correctly identify the origins of the symptoms in order to propose the most effective therapies.

Exhaustion and insomnia are becoming more prevalent in adults as well as occasionally in children and adolescents. The majority believe it to be a common occurrence brought on by stress and pollution, but most frequently, these disorders are the result of latent bodily dysfunctions that, over time, can result in very dangerous conditions.

Medical practitioners are aware that dealing with a condition early on has a far higher likelihood of success than dealing with one that has been present for a long time.

!! The devices CANNOT replace a specialized (complex) diagnosis of a particular organ; rather, in such cases, our doctors work together and advise seeking the advice of a qualified specialist. However, the devices can quickly identify any issues and buy time, which is often the difference between life and death. !!

The technology is non-invasive and without adverse effects, but it shouldn’t be used by those who use cardiac stimulators or have regular epileptic seizures.

Although it sounds straightforward, yawning is actually a complex action with a still-unknown function.

In summary

If someone yawns directly in your face, don’t take it personally. We still don’t fully grasp many aspects of yawning, including if that individual is yawning out of boredom, fatigue, or to communicate with you. Those that yawn might merely want some space might need to relax up their lungs’ narrow airways, or might be getting ready to pay more attention to what you’re saying.
