HIV-AIDS Cause on a Cell Level: Low Body Oxygen
What causes the progression of HIV-AIDS on a cell level? A critically low body or cell oxygen level (tissue hypoxia) as the central HIV-AIDS cause on a cellular level have been suggested and confirmed by numerous medical studies (Wang et al, 1993; Mootsikapun et al, 1996; Khare & Sharland, 1999; Pellicelli et al, 2001; Zhang et al, 2002; Deshmane et al, 2009; Long et al, 2009). In particular, more recent studies conducted in the Laboratory of Clinical and Experimental Pathology of the Louis Pasteur Hospital (Nice, France) observed that a higher expression of the hypoxia-inducable factor -1 was associated with Kaposi sarcoma progression (Long et al, 2009).
Why could people with HIV have abnormally low body oxygenation?
Other medical studies found that severely sick HIV-AIDS patients (Stage 4: Progression from HIV to AIDS) have very large respiratory rates. Their average breathing frequency at rest was 29 to 49 breaths per minute in one study (Zhongguo et al, 2004), and about 30 breaths/min in another (Montaner et al,1993), while the medical norm for adults is 10-12 breaths/min. A high respiratory rate was a normal clinical finding for 59 HIV-AIDS patients with interstitial infiltrates on chest radiographs (Knauer et al, 2005). This group of the severely sick patients had tuberculosis, Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP), bacterial pneumonia (20.3%) and fungal pneumonia (10.2%).
Another cardiorespiratory parameter (the heart rate) was measured in 2 of these studies. The Chinese study (Zhongguo et al, 2004) found that the pulse of their HIV-AIDS patients ranged from 89 to 145 beats/min, while the Canadian doctors reported that their patients had the average pulse of 100 beats per minute (Montaner et al,1993). All this evidence points out the main physiological cause of HIV-AIDS progression.
It is known that chronic hyperventilation leads to elevated heart rates in many groups of patients (e.g., asthma, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and many other conditions). Generally, the advance of any respiratory and/or inflammatory condition is manifested in higher heart rates, as it is reflected in the Buteyko Table of Health Zones. Hence, the results testify about the presence of severe hyperventilation in all these patients.
Hence, the cause of HIV-AIDS is ineffective breathing and classical symptoms of hyperventilation have been known to medical professionals for many decades. They include: poor perfusion of all vital organs due to hypocapnia, reduced cell oxygen content due to CO2-induced vasoconstriction and the suppressed Bohr effect, immune dysfunction caused by cell hypoxia, mental symptoms due to low CO2 and O2 levels in the brain, and hundreds of other abnormalities that affect virtually all chemical reactions and processes in the human body, as well as all vital organs.
The HIV virus does not cause the development of AIDS and death. All symptoms, including changes in the lungs, the development of yeast infections (Candida), skin rashes and many others take place naturally in other people due to presence of hyperventilation. Hence, the HIV virus simply reinforces pathological effects caused by hyperventilation. In order to check these findings, a patient should find his respiratory parameters and see how these parameters relate to his symptoms.
HIV/AIDS clinical trial reveals the cause of HIV-AIDS
Russian doctors practicing the Buteyko breathing method had a clinical trial for a group of HIV patients with very encouraging results. For these doctors the body oxygen level (CP test - see instructions below) is the main measuring tool of personal health. They discovered that with a higher body oxygen content or CP (due to breathing exercises and lifestyle changes), typical manifestations of HIV-AIDS disappear. Thus, the participants had their standard medication and practiced breath work, as a supplementary technique to fight HIV-AIDS and effects of hypoxia. I translated the official report about this HIV-AIDS clinical trial.
Abnormal breathing causes HIV-AIDS
What are the usual results for the body-oxygen test for HIV-AIDS patients? The results, according to Russian clinical research, are linked with these typical symptoms and effects:
|Body-oxygen test||Symptoms in people with HIV-AIDS virus|
|1-10 seconds||Advance of opportunistic infections: Pneumocystis jirovecii Pneumonia (PCP), Tuberculosis (TB), Kaposi's Sarcoma (KS), Herpes simplex, Kaposi's sarcoma, Varicella Zoster, Cryptosporidiosis, Candida, Cytomegolavirus (CMV), Isosporiasis, Kaposi's Sarcoma, Cytomegolavirus, Toxoplasmosis, Cryptococcosis, Non Hodgkin's lymphoma, Varicella Zoster, and Herpes simplex, which affect the respiratory system, gastro-intestinal system, central/peripheral nervous system, and skin leading to HIV wasting syndrome, chronic herpes simplex infection, recurrent severe bacterial pneumonia, pneumocystis pneumonia, Kaposi sarcoma, candidasis of trachea, bronchi and/or lungs, extrapulmonary cryptococcosis including meningitis, HIV encephalopathy, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, disseminated non-tuberculous mycobacteria infection, chronic isosporiasis, chronic cryptosporidiosis, lymphoma (cerebral or B cell non-Hodgkin), extrapulmonary histoplasmosis, coccidiomycosis, recurrent septicaemia (including non-typhoidal Salmonella), symptomatic HIV-associated nephropathy or HIV-associated cardiomyopathy, invasive cervical carcinoma|
|11-20 seconds||Fatigue, skin rashes, night sweats, mouth ulcers, moderate digestive complaints, and fungal skin infections. Typical problems are chronic oral and/or vaginal thrush (a fungal rash or spots), recurrent herpes blisters on the mouth (cold sores) and/or genitals, ongoing fevers and persistent diarrhea, and some weight loss. The disease will progress to clinical stage 4 or end-stage, especially with the transition to mouth breathing, sleeping on one's back at night and/or chest breathing.|
|20-40 seconds||No need for medication and no major HIV-AIDS symptoms, with mild symptoms related to worsened sleep, intestinal candidasis, and light morning fatigue|
|Over 40 seconds||Excellent health, including normalization of blood tests, parameters of the immune system, and mental well being.|
The natural and stress-free body-oxygen test is also valuable in numerous situations to check the effects of various factors, including sleep, exercise, diet, etc. on the HIV-AIDS cause. To increase body oxygen test results and slow down breathing rates are the central goals of the Buteyko method. What reduces one's body oxygen level? The main physiological factors include a lack of physical activity, exercise with mouth breathing, sleeping too long and/or on the back, overeating, overheating, stress, poor posture and many others.
Hence, breathing retraining or the normalization of breathing parameters is necessary for faster health restoration. Furthermore, any HIV-AIDS treatment program must have breathing techniques as a necessary part for health restoration and the elimination of the main physiological cause of HIV-AIDS.
All HIV-AIDS web pages:
HIV-AIDS Cause - Suppression of the immune system can take place only due to low oxygen levels in body cells. Therefore, tissue hypoxia, due to abnormal breathing in people with HIV-AIDS, is the cause
HIV-AIDS Therapy - Improve body oxygenation with breathing retraining (you need to change your automatic breathing patterns in order to have more oxygen in the body 24/7)
HIV-AIDS Clinical Trial - Breathing exercises reverse typical signs and symptoms of advanced HIV-AIDS.
