The Key Cause of Coughing is Discovered

Clinical experience and numerous medical trials have revealed that breathing training eliminates symptoms in asthmatics. Cough is the most prominent symptom in asthma. Hence, breathing abnormalities are responsible for the urge-to-cough reflex. This article explains the mechanism of coughing and its only cause: chronic hyperventilation.

Most Important Minerals Tutorial for Better Respiration and Body Oxygenation

If we consider modern people, their most common deficiencies are Magnesium, Zinc, Calcium, Omega 3 fats and/or fish oil. The hard thing is to determine deficiency of nutrients in the human organism. This article suggests a simple DIY test to measure oxygen content in the body (a special stress-free breath holding time test) for testing supplementation effects.

Mouth breathing problems in toddlers, infants, babies and children: and what is normal and healthy

Difficulties with nose breathing in the young (babies, children, toddlers and infants) is a new problem that challenges our society and parents due to its overwhelming negative effects on our young generation. What are its causes, effects and methods of prevention and treatment?

Effects, Prevention, Causes, Treatment of Infant Noisy Breathing

It is absolutely normal that babies and infants breathe much faster than adults at rest. The normal breathing rate in infants (official medical norm) is up to 2-4 times higher than in adults. The problem, however, starts when there is a negative biochemical effects of over-breathing in child's health and well-being. When adults breathe more than the physiological standard, they lose too much CO2 from body cells.

What Was Wrong with All 6 Randomised Controlled Trials of the Buteyko Method

If we consider the outcomes of these trials for asthmatics, the results of all trials were remarkable. The patients used 3-10 times less reliever medication, twice less steroids, had better quality of life parameters and less asthma symptoms, but unchanged respiratory lung function test results after 3-6 months of practicing Buteyko breathing exercises. Any concerns to worry? Yes, all these trials had one attitude-related error which is about understanding the essence of the Buteyko breathing method.

Normal Breathing Rate and Oxygen Content in Body Cells and their Self-Assessments

Modern medical textbooks suggest that normal breathing rate for an adult is 12 breaths per minute at rest. Textbooks, published about a hundred ago, often provide even smaller values (e.g., 8-10 breaths per minute). However, most modern humans breathe much faster (about 15-20 breaths in 1 min). Chronic over-breathing DECREASES oxygenation of the body due to CO2-induced constriction of blood vessels (vasoconstriction) and the suppressed Bohr effect. Therefore, the less we breathe, the more oxygen our cells get.

Most common challenges and benefits of learning Buteyko breathing retraining technique exercises

The Buteyko method is based on such breathing changes so that to increase oxygenation of cells permanently and prevent any episodes of over-breathing. There are several breathing parameters of a person that should achieve certain specific numbers (find Buteyko Table of Health Zones for more detail). As a result, to master the Buteyko breathing technique means to permanently normalize one’s breathing pattern.

Why modern people cannot lose weight due to exercise (the key unknown factor)

In short, modern people do not know how to breathe during exercise. The crucial thing for not being hungry after exercise is better body oxygenation and higher blood sugar levels so that to feel energetic, not hungry. All these parameters relate to the way we breathe during and after exercise. How should we breathe during and after exercise for better body oxygenation?

How breathing frequency relates to body oxygenation

These parameters have an inverse relationship: the less our breathing frequency at rest (or the slower our breathing), the higher our body oxygenation. Moreover, there are simple DIY tests for measuring both these parameters.
