Anxiety and Breathing: Causes and Effects
While teaching breathing retraining for over 10 years to thousands of my students, I noticed that any student with anxiety or panic attacks can naturally get rid of their symptoms with easier and slower breathing. This page provides an overview of anxiety and panic, as well as their relation to breathing, and how to treat anxiety naturally with breathing normalization.
Symptoms of anxiety attacks
- Chest tightness
Early signs and symptoms of anxiety disorders
Treatment of anxiety disorders with breathing retraining
Anxiety breathing disorders do not appear in people with normal breathing parameters. Overbreathing or chronic hyperventilation is manifested in low body oxygenation (less than 20 seconds for the body-oxygen test) and hypocapnia, which causes overexcited states of nerve cells. Both these effects take place due to chronic hyperventilation present in over 90% of people (see Homepage for clinical studies).
The main impact of healthy lifestyle factors on anxiety breathing disorders is lighter and easier breathing manifested in increased cell oxygenation. Vice versa, lifestyle risk factors intensify breathing (make it faster and deeper) causing hypocapnia (carbon dioxide deficiency) and all negative effects related to low CO2 levels in the blood and other cells.
Reduce anxiety with breathing
The effects of exercise depend on the presence of nasal breathing (in
and out) and changes in blood gases and nitric oxide blood
Anxiety breathing problems
- Lack or insufficient
Permanent solution for anxiety breathing disorders
Here is a technique (see it on the right side) from YouTube video "How to get rid of anxiety" with a breathing exercise. The exercise was developed and used by more than 160 Soviet medical doctors. It requires about 2-3 minutes and helps over 90% of people with anxiety.
In order to eliminate symptoms of anxiety and breathing too heavily and get rid of anxiety attacks for good, one needs to achieve more than X seconds for the body-oxygen test. The number X is provided below as your bonus content.
There are various breathing techniques that lead to increased oxygen content in brain cells.
