Fitness: Good or Bad For Your Health?

I had not been to the gym for years and when I recently visited one, I was shocked. I saw pale and exhausted people torturing themselves through exercise. Almost all were breathing heavily through their mouths! They were unaware that their fitness was harming their health.

Look In the Mirror (Breathing Exercise)

Put a chair in front of a big mirror, uncover the upper part of your body and sit down. If you don't have a big mirror, just imagine that you are in front of one.

Familiarize yourself with your breathing by observing your body movements. Ask yourself the following questions:

Sleeping At Night: CO2 Rich or Poor?

When we are asleep, we don't have any control over our breathing. We are also physically inactive and our metabolism is slow, producing less carbon dioxide than during active periods of the day. Hyperventilation is the strongest during the night and especially early in the morning, usually generating strong symptoms. Stopping hyperventilation during the night is an important step towards better health.

Asthma: What Do You Think?

Today in the US asthma is considered an epidemic. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, Asthma is the most common chronic disease of childhood. In the United States, it is estimated that nearly 5 million youngsters under age 18 have this disease. In 1993 alone, asthma was the reason for almost 200,000 hospital stays and about 340 deaths among people under age 25.

Stop Being Allergic

Blooming tress, growing grass, and fragrant flowers often cause sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes and terrible headaches. Unfortunately, allergies are so common that they seem normal.

Allergies are not normal! From Dr. Buteyko’s perspective, it is a serious health issue indicating the dysfunction of the immune system. If they are not stopped by Breathing Normalization, he believed allergies could lead to cancer..

Will This Spring Make My Health Worse?

People often don't feel well when it's windy. Why is this?

Dr. Buteyko explained that with windy weather comes a change of atmospheric pressure. This reduces the level of carbon dioxide in the lungs, which is already scarce for most people. A CO2 deficit always leads to the deterioration of health and makes symptoms more active. This explains why a person's health is often worse during the spring when the weather is unstable and often windy.

When you know how to reduce your breathing, you can overcome the impact of windy weather on your health. When your breathing becomes healthy, you will no longer be affected by weather changes.

 

Does Talking Make You Feel Tired?

Most people lose energy when they talk: this is because they breathe through their mouths. This deep breathing stimulates the loss of vital carbon dioxide and worsens symptoms.

Many professional educators or actors suffer from breathing difficulties. This problem can be corrected if they learn how to modify their breathing during work hours. If you talk for a living this could be a lifesaver, eliminating a choice between 'keeping your job' and 'being healthy'.

A Thank You Letter to Your Nose

nose: why nasal breathing is important

The nose is our ally, which always tries to lessen over-breathing, which could cause many health issues and even be lethal. When you hyperventilate, your nose produces mucus to narrow airways and make you breathe less. If you reduce your air consumption voluntarily, you remove the reasons for your nose to create blockages and 'easy breathing' will be restored. It's amazing for me to observe how reactive my nose became after several years of breathing practice. Every time I eat or drink something favorable to hyperventilation (coffee, for example), my nose immediately starts running. If I visit a high altitude place forcing me to breathe deeper, my nose will run until I readjust my breathing. If I talk loudly for a long time, for instance, giving a lecture to a large audience, it deepens my breathing and my nose starts compensating for it.

Buteyko Was Einstein Of Medicine

ira-video-player-icon"Dr. Buteyko's discovery is as significant as Einstein's discovery of the theory of relativity.  Einstein's discovery changed the way the world looked at energy, mass and movement.  It made everyone think differently about things that we all took for granted.


I believe that Dr. Buteyko's theories of hyperventilation will revolutionize the way that modern medicine looks at many disease entities."

Buteyko Breathing: No Medication Or Side-effects

ira-video-player-iconThe Buteyko Method has no side effect, there is no down-side to this treatment. People who put into effect the Buteyko Lifestyle treatment will notice a dramatic increase in energy, a decrease in chronic infections, improved sleep, improved memory and dramatic improvements in chronic asthma.

 

Wheezing And Buteyko Method

ira-video-player-iconWheezing is the body's defensive response to hyperventilation. If someone breathes too fast, the carbon dioxide level in the lungs drops. By wheezing, the lungs hold on to more carbon dioxide and try to correct the body's pH balance. We have seen over and over again that if you can get someone who is wheezing to slow down their breathing and increase their carbon dioxide, the wheezing goes away.

Buteyko: Addressing the Medical Community

ira-video-player-iconIt's very important that the Medical Community tries to understand the theories behind the Buteyko Method and the far-reaching effects this could have on the health of the general population. Chronic hyperventilation creates a persistently alkalotic state, it is the presence of a low carbon dioxide level in the lung which causes the body's pH to go up. The body's response to the change in pH is to go into bronchospasm in order to hold onto carbon dioxide, thus bringing the pH back to normal.
