Can COVID-19 lifestyle changes influence survival and reduce mortality for people with mild, moderate, and severe COVD-19 before they get on mechanical ventilation with supplemented oxygen? Absolutely yes. The changes would be dramatic since COVID-19 mortality can be reduced by about 100 times with lifestyle changes related to sleep position, diet, and physical exercise (with nose breathing only). Avoidance of mouth breathing will also provide a strong impact on survival and less oxygen/ventilation required.
Singapore COVID-19 Trial: 50k+ Subjects 100 Times Less Mortality – No Vaccines, Just COVID-19 Lifestyle Changes
Big Pharma teams around the world are still looking for the vaccine for COVID-19 since they see vaccination is the main way to deal with the pandemic. This video below compares COVID-19 mortality for different countries and explains the causes of widely different mortality, why mortality in Singapore about 100 times less than average 5%, and nearly 300 times less than in Mexico. It is about the COVID-19 lifestyle, COVID-19 diet, COVID-19 sleep, and other factors.
Video Description by Ravi Sandhu (UK):
“In this video, Buteyko Method practitioner and health educator Dr. Artour Rakhimov will discuss the COVID-19 pandemic, COVID-19 lifestyle, COVID-19 diet, and COVID-19 sleep. Dr. Artour begins the discussion by introducing the typical mortality statistics for influenza. In the United States, between 10 and 15 million people will catch the flu each year. The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that between 10 to 45 million suffered from the flu from 2010 to 2019. From these statistics, we can see that 1,000,000 people are infected each year, with 1000 cases proving fatal. As such, the flu has a death rate of 0.1% per year according to reliable statistics.
When the COVID-19 pandemic first broke out, the mortality in countries like Spain and Italy was deemed to be around 15%. Dr. Artour has been monitoring data throughout the pandemic. He noticed that mortality in Russia was exceptionally low, less than 1% even, significantly lower than other parts of the world. Why did Russia have such low case mortality? Dr. Artour hypothesizes that the popularity of the Buteyko Method may well have contributed to this outcome. The Buteyko Method is still relatively well-known in Russia, which was where Dr. Buteyko most prominently advertised his method and promoted his core philosophy of human health requiring the elimination of deep breathing. People working in emergency care, such as paramedics, for instance, are still likely to be aware of the Buteyko Method and the dangers of deep breathing. It is possible that they applied ideas related to the COVID-19 lifestyle, such as correct sleep positions.
Towards the end of May, a miraculous change occurred. In Spain, COVID-19 mortality dropped from around 10% to 0.3% – a 50-time reduction in mortality. The same mortality rate remained through June and July, though there were hundreds of new cases. Considering this profound change, perhaps the more skeptical among us would be inclined to question the legitimacy of the pandemic?
Following Spain, mortality dropped by 30 times across other developed Western nations, dropping to around 0.3%. Dr Artour then began to consider the question of whether there are countries that have especially low COVID-19 mortality rates. He found that there are many countries where COVID-19 mortality is extremely low, for example, there are countries that have had a total of a few hundred cases and 0 deaths. Interestingly, Singapore had over 50,000 people infected with COVID-19, but only 27 deaths, which would give a death rate of 0.05%. This is about half that of influenza.
What was Singapore doing to lead to this astonishing pandemic outcome?
Singapore has a similar rate of testing than the UK, has a similar proportion of the population affected, and has administered similar recommendations. In reviewing articles relating to Singapore’s approach to COVID-19, Dr. Artour encountered an article that suggested that Singapore had recommended patients with confirmed cases of COVID-19 make alterations to their sleeping position to reduce mortality. This recommendation, Dr. Artour highlights, falls into alignment with the principles of the Buteyko Method. Furthermore, Singapore provided holistic care to COVID-19 patients, addressing factors like nutrition and activity. Dr. Artour emphasizes the profoundly healing effects of dietary and activity modifications and outlines how these could protect the public from infections like COVID-19.”
Here is an older video (uploaded on YouTube on April 19, 2020. It estimates that usual COVID-19 mortality could probably be reduced about 10 times with Buteyko lifestyle changes.
