Variability of factors causing overbreathing
The hyperventilation-promoting factors are individual to the person and can vary over time for the same person.
For example, a healthy young man, after graduation, may become less active
physically. Breathing gets heavier. After some years he gradually gains weight.
That further intensifies breathing and lowers the CP. Later he starts breathing
through his mouth and sleeping on his back. He becomes and feels more and more
unwell. Presence of a childhood psycho trauma would be a great amplifier of
these negative effects. Here, a combination of factors has gradually made his
breathing heavier. If one wants to get back to the norm, to reverse the negative
factors is the solution.
"Therefore, the only way left is to carry out the principle that we have
proposed for the prevention and treatment of the mentioned diseases: this is the
principle of willful elimination of deep breathing. As one learned deep
breathing, so should he re-learn it. Using which way? Contrary to the way that
deepened his breathing. Everyone has a method and used it to deepened breathing,
and it is possible to correct it [breathing] practically by the reverse method."
