What are your Control and Positive Maximum Pauses? By a simple measurement of your breathing, you can evaluate how healthy you are.
Due to K. Buteyko's scientific findings, a totally healthy person has a Positive Maximum Pause (PMP) of 60 sec and a Control Pause (CP) of 30 sec or higher. This means that for a healthy person it is comfortable and easy to stay without any air for one minute and extremely easy to do it for half a minute. At this point a person does not have any symptoms and his immune system protects him/her from seasonal respiratory problems as well as many serious health issues.
