HIV-AIDS Virus: Treated Naturally with Higher Body O2
was a small clinical trial on people with HIV-AIDS, it was the most successful
trial in history of HIV-AIDS research. What were the reasons behind
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. See this page for details:
HIV-AIDS and low body O2. Decades
of medical research revealed hundreds of pathological effects of chronic
hyperventilation that is present even in modern normal subjects (see the Homepage).
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
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).
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:
- 1. The use of the Buteyko method has resulted in improvements
in clinical symptoms.
- 2. No side-effects or complications have been observed in
patients with AIDS during the Buteyko therapy.
- 3. It is sensible to continue careful observations and
laboratory investigations of AIDS patients and recommend the Buteyko
method for further testing.
- 4. Regular psychotherapy that had been used earlier proved
ineffective, and the health state of four patients even worsened.
Here are the translation of the clinical trial and an official letter to the
Deputy Minister of Health of Ukrainian SSR about this
HIV-AIDS clinical trial.
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?
1-10 s of oxygen in body cells - HIV wasting syndrome, pneumocystis
pneumonia, Kaposi sarcoma, candidiasis of trachea,
chronic herpes simplex infection, recurrent severe bacterial pneumonia,
progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, disseminated non-tuberculous
mycobacteria infection, bronchi and/or lungs, extrapulmonary cryptococcosis
including meningitis, HIV encephalopathy, chronic isosporiasis, chronic
cryptosporidiosis, lymphoma (cerebral or B cell non-Hodgkin), invasive
cervical carcinoma, extrapulmonary histoplasmosis,
coccidiomycosis, recurrent septicaemia (including non-typhoidal
Salmonella), symptomatic HIV-associated nephropathy or
10-20 s - Fatigue, mouth ulcers, skin rashes, night sweats, moderate
digestive complaints, and fungal skin infections. Typical problems are recurrent herpes
blisters on the mouth (cold sores) and/or genitals, chronic oral and/or vaginal
thrush (a fungal rash or spots), ongoing fevers, persistent diarrhea, and
Over 25 s - No need for medication and no major symptoms
Over 40 s CP 24/7 - Normal health, including blood tests,
various parameters of the immune system, digestion and mental well being.
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
What reduces body-oxygen content in people with HIV-AIDS? The main physiological factors are the same as for ordinary people:
sleeping too long and/or on the back, overeating, overheating, stress, a 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, the key hallmarks of advancing HIV-AIDS.
