HIV-AIDS Virus Control: Treated Naturally by Body O2
Any HIV-AIDS therapy, in order to be successful and efficient, should include breathing retraining, in addition to accepted practices of medication use, so as to improve body-O2 content using breathing exercises and natural lifestyle correction (learning diaphragmatic breathing, prevention of mouth breathing during sleep, physical exercise with nose breathing only, etc.). Such an approach allows faster improvements in the parameters of the immune system to fight the HIV virus and improve digestion, sleep, and desire and tolerance to exercise.
Clinical evidence of doctors, as well as available physiological studies, found that advance of HIV-AIDS is always manifested in reduced cell oxygenation. Decades of medical research revealed hundreds of pathological effects of chronic hyperventilation that is present even in modern normal subjects.
Is there any western published evidence that HIV-AIDS sufferers breathe heavier during the progression of the disease? I could not find any studies that had measured minute ventilation numbers provided, but there are other publications were respiratory frequency and heart rates were reported.
In one study, Canadian doctors from St Paul's Hospital (University of British Columbia, Vancouver) discovered that corticosteroids reduced initial breathing rates from 30 to 22 breaths/min at rest (Montaner et al, 1993). Hence, the initial breathing frequency in these HIV-AIDS patients was about 30 breaths per minute (the normal range is 10-12 breaths per min at rest). It corresponds to about 5 s for the body-oxygen test and the last stage of the disease (the terminal stage). After application of cortisol, their breathing became slower (22 breaths/min), which according to the Buteyko Table of Health Zones is over 15 s, which corresponds to mild forms of the disease.
In another study, a group of Chinese MDs used oxygen-enriched liquid to reduce low blood oxygenation in patients with SARS and HIV-AIDS virus. Their initial respiratory rate ranged from 29 to 49 breaths per minute (less than 6 s for the body-oxygen test). Hence, HIV-AIDS patients do indeed suffer from very heavy breathing during the last stage of the disease.
Therefore, heavy breathing is the cause of HIV-AIDS, and medical studies indeed point out that hypoxia is a normal clinical feature in HIV-AIDS patients (follow the link for research studies). Chronic hyperventilation immediately leads to a cascade of pathological changes in the lung tissue due to alveolar hypocapnia (CO2 deficiency) and equally injurious effects in all vital organs and body cells. These effects are summarized on web pages devoted to CO2 uses in the human body.
Furthermore, such respiratory disturbances (e.g., very fast breathing, quick and forceful exhalations, absence of the automatic pause after the exhalation, etc.) should cause reduced nitric oxide production and absorption, as it was reported by US scientists from the Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland (Loveless et al, 1997).
Clinical Trial: Application of the Buteyko breathing therapy for HIV-AIDS patients
In the early 1990s, a large group of Russian and
Ukrainian MDs organized a clinical trial for 7 people with advanced HIV-AIDS
disease. Here are the main trial's conclusions:
Usual CP (body-oxygen content) numbers in HIV-AIDS patients
What are the usual CP numbers (oxygenation index) for HIV-AIDS
patients and their clinical features?
Note that the CP fluctuates throughout the day and the most important result is immediately after waking up in the morning. This is exactly the most miserable time for patients with HIV-AIDS virus, while other severely sick patients (those with stroke, coronary heart disease, epilepsy, COPD, diabetes, asthma, etc.) are most likely to die during early morning hours due to severe overbreathing and critical oxygenation numbers.
The natural and stress-free CP test is invaluable in numerous situations. One can check the effects of various factors, including allergies, nutritional deficiencies, exercise, etc. To increase tissue oxygen content and the CP (stress-free breath holding time after exhalation) are the central goals of the Buteyko breathing method.
What reduces body-oxygen content? The main physiological factors include: sleeping too long and/or on the back, overeating, overheating, stress, lack of physical activity, exercise with mouth breathing, poor posture and many others. All these factors make respiration more frequent and heavier causing losses of CO2 and this is the key factor that triggers negative effects of chronic diseases, including cell hypoxia and suppressed immune system.
An even faster and easier technique for higher body-oxygen content is to use the Amazing DIY Breathing Device or the Frolov breathing device. The breathing exercises with the device are much more efficient (by around 50%) for those patients, who have less than 30 s for their CPs during initial stages of breathing retraining.
