Discovery - How breathing can change your life?

  • Discovery #1. Breathing Exercises Are All About CO2 (not blood oxygen)

    Breathing exercises are mostly about the manipulation of carbon dioxide in the blood, not oxygen. CO2 is not a toxin to be avoided. It’s hugely valuable, and most people over-breathe, not under-breathe, and we need to learn how to conserve CO2.

  • Discovery #2. Slow Breathing Increases Cellular Oxygen

    Logically, you’d think that if you breathe fast, you’ll get more oxygen, right? Not true. In fact, if you breath really fast for a few minutes, you’ll get dizzy and might even pass out. Slow breathing increases blood CO2 levels that allow for greater absorption of oxygen.

Amazing Facts About Breathing

Breathing has such an immediate impact on your mind and body that even the act of inhaling vs. exhaling affects your nervous system differently. It’s common to train in diet, exercise and even hydration, but almost no one trains their breath. This is a huge missed opportunity for health-seekers.

Did you know…

  • Breathing can change your blood PH (acid/alkaline) in minutes. No food, exercise or medication acts as quickly.

  • You can often determine your dominant nervous system state simply by placing your finger underneath your nostrils and exhaling.

  • Reduced rate breathing can stimulate a rest and digest, parasympathetic nervous system state to help with sleep, stress, and anxiety.

  • Rapid, pulsed breathing stimulates a sympathetic nervous system response to increase energy, prepare for exercise, or boost the body’s natural defenses.

  • Diaphragmatic breathing massages the Vagus Nerve and reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, and reduces stress.2

  • Severe respiratory conditions like asthma can be successfully managed by increasing CO2 levels in the blood.3

  • Breathing can help reduce the fear of public speaking, improve digestion, reduce insomnia, lower stress, anxiety, and overwhelm.
