Alternate nostril breathing is apparently good for the nerves. Here is Swami Vivekananda (disciple of Ramakrishna) on Pranayama. In spiritualism Prana is the sum total of universal energy. It is the prime energy which has its manifest form in all visible forces. The universe is created when Prana acts upon the sky-element. We breathe and the blood circulates because of it. The same Prana is in our nerves, muscles and the brain. If we can control the breathing we will gradually achieve more and more subtle forces.
