Chronic Diseases Caused by Low Body O2
We already discovered that people with chronic diseases have ineffective or heavy breathing pattern 24/7 with deep breathing 24/7 (for clinical studies, visit the Homepage of this site). While considering carbon dioxide effects, we also found that chronic overbreathing leads to reduced oxygen transport to cells. As a result, ineffective breathing patterns cause tissue hypoxia, chronic inflammation, immunosuppression, and many other negative effects caused by low body-oxygen levels and hypocapnia (reduced CO2 levels).
Meanwhile, it is known that tissue hypoxia is the driving force for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, chronic fatigue and many other health conditions. Hence, the more people breathe, the more severe health problems, diseases, and symptoms they are going to experience.
In this Section we are going to focus on some common diseases:
* Asthma symtoms, causes, effects, and treatment:
- Asthma signs and symptoms overview of the main symptoms of asthma
- Bronchial asthma (destructive effects of hyperventilation of lungs and airways in humans)
- What causes asthma web page provides details of effects of hyperventilaiton on people with asthma
- How to stop acute asthma Exacerbation educates about a simple breathing exercise that can be used instead of relievers (like Ventolin)
- Asthma treatment requires elimination of its cause: chronic overbreathing that leads to low body O2, bronchospasm, chronic inflammation and other signs and symptoms of asthma.
* Anxiety breathing disorders: Even the name of this condition pinpoints the main cause.
* Chronic fatigue syndrome: How abnormal or ineffective breathing pattern induces chronic fatigue and other debilitating symptoms.
Hypoxia is the known key cause of cancer on a cell level. How it
relates to breathing of cancer patients? What are the treatment options? Do you
know about the clinical trial on breast cancer: reduced breathing cured
about 60 women with metastasized breast cancer?
- Cancer and oxygen: Studies claim that O2 levels in cells control development of cancer
- Carbogen and CO2 effects on cancer - Adding CO2 to the inspired air improves oxygenation of cancer tumors
- Breathing parameters in terminal cancer - Several groups of oncologists measured breathing parameters in people with cancer
- Buteyko Table of Health Zones accurately predicted last cancer stages
- Therapies for cancer treatment - If oxygen is so important, the therapies for cancer should include natural self-oxygenation methods
- Breakthrough in breast cancer research and treatment - In a published controlled clinical trial, it was found that 2 hours of daily breathing exercises reduced mortality in people with metastatic breast cancer by nearly 6 times.
* Sinusitis (Cause and proven medical treatment)
* Cystic Fibrosis Web Pages: Therapy For
Cystic Fibrosis: Treatment with Breathing Retraining
- Cystic Fibrosis in Lungs is Caused by Low CO2 - Medical research review about prevalence of chronic hyperventilation in CF and injurious effects of chronic hyperventilation on lungs. Or check out this Amazon Kindle book: "Cystic Fibrosis Life Expectancy: 30, 50, 70".
- Prognosis of Cystic Fibrosis and Lung CO2 & Body Oxygen - How clinical symptoms and prognosis, including life expectancy, relate to respiratory parameters in CF.
- Cystic Fibrosis Cause: Chronic Hyperventilation - Summary of effects of chronic hyperventilation and cystic fibrosis.
- CFTR is Controlled by Lung-Blood Gases and Breathing - Scientific publications that link faulty CF gene CFTR and how it amplifies pathological changes caused by chronic hyperventilation.
* Epilepsy and Seizures web pages:
- Seizure Threshold Is Controlled by Breathing Pattern and Blood Gases - Tens of medical studies have found that voluntary hyperventilation triggers seizures, while hypocapnia in the brain lowers the seizure threshold due to over-excitement of the nerve cells.
- The Cause of Seizures - Seizures cannot exist in conditions of normal breathing, but can appear when breathing is disturbed.
- How to Stop Seizures Naturally in 2-3 Min (Breath Exercise) - When the person has ability and time to control their own breathing, he or she can prevent many types of seizures with a simple breathing exercise.
- How to Prevent Sleep Seizures: Lifestyle Changes - Most sleep seizures can be prevented or their severity can be reduced with simple lifestyle changes that make breathing slower, lighter and more regular.
- Treatment of Seizures Program (90% Success Rate) - Breathing retraining leads to elimination of seizures and clinical remission of epilepsy.
* Heart disease: Problems with breathing is always one of the main complaints in heart patients.
- HIV-AIDS Therapy: Reduced body-oxygen content is a hallmark of numerous abnormalities related to HIV-AIDS. Hence, breathing normalization is the way to deal with these pathological changes related to digestion, mental life, feeling of energy, sleep, infections and many others.
- Clinical trial on HIV-AIDS patients revealed that the body-oxygen test reflects the stage of the disease and symptoms of the patients. Hence, the HIV-AIDS cause is chronic hyperventilation and there are breathing techniques which can successfully address chronic overbreathing in HIV-AIDS patients.
* IBD (inflammatory bowel disease):
- Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis diet, hidden triggers and beyond: Find out how to restore good digestive health, achieve no soiling, and clinical remission for these very serious digestive problems.
* Raynaud's disease: Key causes of Raynaud's relate to lack of CO2 and free electrons in cells.
Doctor K. P. Buteyko observed that out of over 20,000 health abnormalities known to medicine, only a small portion (about 150 diseases) relates to breathing and can be successfully addressed with breathing retraining or breathing normalization.

How to increase body oxygenation
There are many breathing techniques and methods in order to normalize breathing and increase body-oxygen levels. The Buteyko breathing technique has the most powerful arsenal of lifestyle changing tools, which are described in detail in the Section Learning. The same Section also describes the Buteyko breathing exercises, which are difficult to learn. Furthermore, there are breathing exercises that are more powerful (in comparison with the Buteyko breathing exercises) to increase body oxygenation.
Oxygen remedy is such a program that is based on using the Buteyko lifestyle
program and the application of breathing devices (the Amazing DIY breathing device,
Frolov device and some others) that trap exhaled air with high CO2 levels for inhalations
to boost body-oxygen content. More info about these alternative respiratory techniques
can be found here:
