One simple and most effective breathing retraining method that can help you take complete control of your Health
In 1950 Professor Buteyko discovered that all suffers of Asthma and dozens of other respiratory related diseases, all share one attribute – they all chronically hyperventilate, meaning over breathe. And that is what this module is all about.
Traditional wisdom suggests that deep breathing is good as it is thought to provide the most oxygen. But did you know that “breathing deeply” in fact contributes to ill health?
Let us explain.
At the end of the last century Russian physiologist Verigo and Dutch scientist Bohr independently discovered that without carbon dioxide, oxygen is bound to the haemoglobin of the blood and simply does not work. This leads to oxygen deficiency in the tissues of the brain, heart, kidneys and other organs and a rising blood pressure.
It is the ratio of carbon dioxide to oxygen which permits the release or retention of oxygen from the blood. So the strange truth is, oxygen deficiency is not caused by lack of oxygen but by the lack of carbon dioxide! If we breathe too much we get less oxygen.
For the cells of the brain, heart, kidney and other organs, our blood requires a concentration of: 6.5% carbon dioxide and only 2% oxygen. The air we breathe contains 200 times less carbon dioxide and 10 time more oxygen then we need. The function of our respiratory system is not just to push air in and out but to maintain a very specific ratio of oxygen to carbon dioxide.
And that is exactly what you will learn in this module. Russian Medical Scientist Professor Konstantin Pavlovich Buteyko devoted over 40 years of research into breathing he discovered a technique to normalise the breathing, thereby normalising the level of carbon dioxide. Now the benefit of this is immense. Carbon dioxide is a regulator of nervous system activity and a lowering of carbon dioxide in the nerve cells can lead to irritability, sleeplessness, stress problems, unfounded anxiety and allergic reactions.
Thus this breathing technique and tailor made set of exercises will help you normalise your nervous system and bring it under control. We are a certified and experienced Classical Buteyko Method practitioner, with over 55 years experience in our team, so you can be rest assured you will learn the best way possible.
It has a number of other benefits too, such as better oxygenation, improved immune system, Acid/Alkali Balance etc.
So, this is what you are going to receive:
- A 60 mins breathing assessment via phone or skype with a certified and experienced practitioner – this will help diagnose your key problems
- Learn what is affecting your breathing and what you can do about it, helping you to feel better and improve consistently
- Learn breathing related eating, drinking and sleeping tips that sabotage your health...
- One step by step breathing exercise will be taught that will help you gain clarity, focus, less craving, energy through more oxygenation and help you deal with specific symptoms.
This is what many has to say about this technique:
