Question: Why are physical exercises needed to overcome breathing difficulties?
Sasha’s Answer: From the perspective of Dr. Buteyko‘s work, breathing problems are caused by a carbon dioxide deficiency in the lungs occurring as a result of excessive air consumption. To reduce or stop breathing problems, the level of CO2 should be increased. One of the most natural ways to achieve this goal is by being physically active. When in motion, the human body generates more CO2 on a cellular level as a result of increased metabolism.
