Stunning evidence about breathing of sick people

If we look at breathing of sick people (each line in this table represents one western study), we see that sick people breathe about 2-3 times more air than the medical norm, which is 6 litres of air for one minute. However, if we measure oxygenation of sick people, using special devices or stress-free breath holding time test, we see that their body oxygenation is less than normal.

However, if we measure oxygenation of sick people, using special devices or stress-free breath holding time test, we see that their body oxygenation is less than normal. This stunning effect is based on the physiological law: the bigger or deeper one’s breathing pattern at rest, the lower their body oxygenation.

The reasons are following:

1. Breathing more does not increase oxygenation of the arterial blood. Even with very little breathing, our blood in the lungs is well saturated with oxygen (up to about 98%).

2.  Overbreathing reduces CO2 content in the body causing vasoconstriction since all smooth muscles of the body become spasmodic when CO2 is lowered.

3. Reduced CO2 also causes the suppressed Bohr effect (the physiological law discovered over a century ago), when red blood cells in capillaries cannot efficiently release oxygen to tissues.

Hence, if sick people manage to restore or normalize their breathing, their body oxygenation will increase and many other negative effects will disappear.

Dr. Buteyko, who headed the classified Soviet project on body oxygenation of astronauts for first Soviet spaceship missions in the 1960’s, also discovered lifestyle factors that influence body oxygenation. Among factors that make breathing heavy and oxygenation low are:
- breathing through the mouth
- sleeping on one’s back
- lack of physical exercise
- over-eating
- poor posture
- over-heating
- talking with deep inhalations
- nutritional deficiencies
- exposure to pollutants, toxins, most medical drugs
- and many others.

He developed the Buteyko breathing method, where physical exercise and breathing exercise, when done correctly, are the most influential factors for better body oxygenation.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR


Dr. Artour Rakhimov (www.normalbreathing.com) teaches breathing retraining and educates the world about importance of normal breathing and the deep breathing myth: over 97% people have a fantasy that a deep breathing pattern increases body oxygenation. For example, sick people typically breathe 2-3 times more than the norm and have, as a result of chronic hyperventilation, REDUCED body oxygenation. Even majority of healthy people breathe much more than the medical norms these days with devastating health effects.
