Breathslim Review: Can Breathslim Help with Weight Loss?
The Breathslim is a breathing device that is featured on the Breathslim website. The Breathslim device is very similar, in its design and materials, to the Frolov breathing device developed by Vladimir Frolov. It is important to realize that whatever breathing devices, methods, techniques, and exercises we use, their effects depend on changes in our automatic or unconscious breathing pattern.
When we apply Breathslim or some other breathing technique, there are generally two long-term effects due to breath work and lifestyle.
1. If our unconscious breathing pattern gradually becomes slower and lighter, then we experience an improved perfusion of all vital organs, increased cell oxygen levels, better immunity, and many other positive effects related to breathing retraining.
2. If our automatic breathing pattern remains the same, then our symptoms, aches, addictions, sleep, digestion, body weight, etc., will also be unchanged.
Therefore, if one sleeps on his or her back or breathes through the mouth during sleep, his or her automatic breathing pattern will likely be the same even after months or years of practicing with the Breathslim or the Frolov breathing device due to the Sleep heavy breathing effect, which can cancel all benefits of breathing exercises.
Hence, in order to achieve certain success with the Breathslim, one needs to increase his or her morning body-oxygen levels. Correction of lifestyle risk factors is necessary for a more efficient breath-changing and life-changing project (nose breathing 24/7, exercise with nose breathing only, elimination of nutritional deficiencies, correct posture for abdominal breathing 24/7, and so on). Obviously, following 2 central rules of the Buteyko method (eat only when you are hungry and stop eating at the first signs of satiety) are also important for Breathslim to work.

How does Breathslim really work?
The Breathslim creators suggest on their website that increased pressure during exhalation helps drive additional oxygen into the arterial blood and this extra oxygen burns extra fat. However, that idea disagrees with the laws of respiratory physiology. These laws claim that the arterial blood is up to 98-99% saturated with oxygen during miniscule normal breathing (6 L/min at rest for a 70-kg man). A moderate air pressure increase in the alveoli cannot significantly influence or increase oxygen transport to cells.
How then does the Breathslim device actually work? Obese people always have reduced body oxygenation. It is nearly the norm that people with moderate degree of obesity have less than 20 seconds for the body-oxygen test, while the medical norm for body oxygenation is about 40 seconds. People with severe obesity have about 10 seconds only. These are effects of their heavy breathing, which reduces body oxygenation.
Correct breathing exercises with Breathslim increase body-oxygen levels. Slower breathing rises alveolar CO2 levels as the users start to breathe easier after the breath work. Since oxygen transport depends on arterial CO2 content and, since alveolar hypocapnia is common in obese people, increased arterial CO2 is the key factor that produces all positive effects. Diaphragmatic breathing during sessions is an additional factor that improves blood oxygenation, while a large amplitude of inhalations and exhalations is an excellent massage of the abdominal organs and the lymph nodes located under the diaphragm.
The use of the Breathslim or the Frolov breathing device is one the most natural and most efficient breathing exercises to increase metabolism, boost body-oxygen levels and fight obesity. The effect of this program can be greatly amplified, if the person also improves lifestyle factors so as to slow down his or her breathing. These lifestyle changes are discussed in the Learning Section of this site.
Summary. Breathslim will boost your metabolism, blood sugar content, and energy levels. It is an excellent way to loose weight. If you increase your body oxygenation up to 40-50 seconds you will have amazing physical fitness, excellent health and normal body weight.

Warning. Breathing exercises can cause powerful cleansing reactions and can be dangerous for pregnant women, people with organ transplants, GI problems, and panic attacks, as well as those who take medication for diabetes, hypertension, hypothyroidism, and other conditions. Consult your health care provider and follow special guidelines, which can be found in the Module Restrictions, limits, and temporary contraindications.
