In this YouTube video, Dr. Artour Rakhimov discusses causes and treatment for atrial fibrillation.
Atrial fibrillation causes
It is possible to reverse atrial fibrillation with the Buteyko Breathing method. Well-known Buteyko Breathing expert, Dr. Artour Rakhimov, discusses reversing atrial fibrillation symptoms with Buteyko Breathing practitioner, Volker Schmitz. The effort involved in reversing atrial fibrillation requires at least one to two hours of breathing retraining sessions daily, as well as the physical exercise with nose breathing only, one to three hours per day. This is not an easy fix. Buteyko students must daily dedicate the time and energy to this practice to improve their health; however, the time spent can add improved quality to one’s life and years to one’s life.
Symptoms of atrial fibrillation include heart palpitations and irregular heart beating which sometimes occurs unnoticed by the affected individual. It has been found today that most people breathe two to three times the medical norm per minute. Instead of increasing blood oxygen from breathing twice to three times as much per minute, this over breathing, or hyperventilation, creates the opposite effect. Increased breathing lowers blood oxygen levels and our organs and tissues become oxygen starved. Why does this happen? Our over-breathing causes carbon dioxide loss. Carbon dioxide is the “most powerful known vasodilator”. People can breathe twice or more the medical norm 24 hours per day without even realizing it. How can one increase carbon dioxide levels to relax our blood vessels allowing much-needed oxygen to oxygen-starved tissues and organs?
The solution lies in breathing retraining practices which originate from famous Russian physician Dr. Konstantin Buteyko. Widely respected Buteyko Breathing training can assist in reducing breaths per minute and end results are astounding, allowing one to slow down unconscious, automatic breathing to the medical norm.
In the video above, Dr. Artour states that “It is hard, but it works really well” and Buteyko Breathing students can reduce and eliminate cardiac medications. “This is great news” he continues saying. Before beginning Buteyko method practices, those afflicted with atrial fibrillation usually have 15-20 second control pause (CP) tests. After breath retraining and Buteyko Breathing students reach 40-50 second CPs a transformation occurs. Buteyko students break free of atrial fibrillation symptoms and have normal EKG’s with no arrhythmia abnormalities. More information on the control pause test and how to perform a CP test can be found on pages of NormalBreathing.com.
“The heart is a very complicated organ,” Dr. Artour explains. “We have to restore normal blood flow and oxygen content and normal synchronization and harmony: certain valves have to open at certain times when we hyperventilate our nervous systems become over-excited.” When our breathing is normalized, CO2 levels are restored to optimal levels, normal blood flow to the heart muscle “gets normalized” and after reaching 40 to 50 second CPs, abnormal heart tissue disappears.
Complete reversal (cure) of atrial fibrillation
After breath retraining students can expect to solve atrial fibrillation conditions completely (clinical remission), as numerous out students demonstrated. These students used the Amazing DIY breathing device, Frolov device, Buteyko reduced breathing (or combinations of these methods) together with lifestyle changes related to physical exercise, sleep, diet and other modifications.
Dr. Artour Rakhimov has several books available through Amazon.com on different ailments outlying how breath retraining implementation from both Dr. Buteyko’s and Dr. Artour’s methods can reverse even the most serious and complicated disease states. Experienced Buteyko Breathing technique practitioners, like Volker Schmitz, can also be found worldwide and are ready to assist you in your quest for better health.
Criteria or parameters of breathing that reverse atrial fibrillation in all studets
Atrial fibrillation disappears with breath normalization (normal breathing 24/7). Most people predisposed or diagnosed with atrial fibrillation require a certain value for the body-oxygen test (CP test) in order to be free from this condition. You can find this exact number right below here as your bonus content.
The bonus content also answers the following query: Can Buteyko exercises cause atrial fibrillation?
For many people getting 30+ s for the morning CP is enough to stop atrial fibrillation and all palpitations, but some people may need up to 35 s and higher morning CPs, while the resting seating pulse should be below 70 beats/min, to be free from this condition.
Yes, Buteyko exercises can lead to appearance of heart palpitations and atrial fibrillation in some breathing students who have too little physical exercise and practice mainly reduced breathing. The solutions are: 1) increase physical activity; 2) use breathing devices or yoga pranayama for some or all your breathing sessions (with reduced breathing in between).
