Important Health and Breathing Tests All People Should Do
By Dr Artour Rakhimov (www.NormalBreathing.com)
Many modern people delay visiting their family doctors until they feel really ill. You could have a better chance of curing or totally averting altogether some chronic diseases, like heart disease, osteoporosis, asthma, and even cancer and diabetes by just keeping better track of your well being. This means that, even if you feel fine, you need to test out certain things pretty regularly. These are some of the common normal health and breathing tests that you should start doing regularly.
You need to test your hearing a whole lot. Hearing loss is a thing
humans typically don’t begin to notice until it is too late to do
anything about it. Losing our hearing can lead to cognitive function
loss along with feelings of loneliness along with other psychological
concerns. If you can find free screenings locally, take advantage and
make sure to ask your medical doctor to do regular tests whenever you
visit him or her. This helps you know when it is time to use certain
preventative measures and when you can get started taking steps to
preserve the hearing you currently have.
You can never be too old to have your body height examined. There is a
real reason that, whenever you go to your family doctor, you are often requested to stand against the height chart
on the wall. People truly get smaller when they grow older. They shed
about one centimeter during each 10 years after they turn 40. After a
person grows to the age of 70, this rate increases. If you shed more
than that or if you're starting to shrink before you turn 40, this could
be an early indicator of osteoporosis or other kinds of diseases. This
is exactly why it is vital that you keep a close eye on your
body height - even if you only sometimes measure yourself at home.
Blood Pressure Test
Monitor your blood pressure too. Blood pressure is proven to contribute to things such as stroke, heart attack, hypertension as well as other health risks. It is important to keep your blood pressure low--not unhealthfully low, obviously, but with a good range for your height, age and weight. Ask the doctor where your blood pressure ought to be and then get it checked out on a regular basis to make sure that you are still in a healthy place. Almost any large grocery store and pharmacy has a blood pressure tester that is either incredibly cheap or free to utilize to check your blood pressure. If your numbers don't appear right to you, ask your family doctor what you could do to get back on track (and to find out what is making the numbers change). Keeping the blood pressure inside right range can help you fight off all sorts of diseases.
Body Oxygenation Test
Calculate your breathing and oxygenation of the body using a
discomfort-free breath holding time test. Breath supplies human beings with
important oxygen. Hence, this test has special value. Immediately
following your habitual expiration, block the nostrils and count
duration of your stress-free breath hold. Note that your respiratory
pattern right after this check should be exactly the same as your previous breath
pattern (just before the test). You should have no any discomfort immediately after this special test.
This particular test indicates a pair of your critical health parameters at one time. To start with, the final result evaluates oxygenation of the body. Besides, that test also signifies how large and deep and abnormal your individual breathing pattern is. Healthy and Balanced persons are required to have roughly 60 seconds. When you have less, you overbreathe or breathe too much and it is essential to slow down your unconscious or automatic respiratory pattern to improve your tissue oxygen content up to the clinical normal value. You now are aware of the main factor of your well-being and health. Search the world wide web for "body oxygen test" to learn more.
If you have less than 20 seconds, you suffer from hyperventilation (breathing too much air). As a result, you can develop many chronic problems since heart disease, cancer, asthma, diabetes, obesity and many other conditions (more than 150 in total) are based on tissue hypoxia (low oxygen level in cells). Virtually all sick people have less than 20 seconds for this test.
Diaphragmatic Breathing Test
Put one arm on your belly (stomach or abdomen) and another one about 1 feet higher, on your upper chest (see the picture). Then you need to relax all your muscles completely so that your breathing has almost no changes. (You want to know more about your usual unconscious breathing: do you use the chest or diaphragm for automatic or unconscious breathing?) Listen to your breath for about 20-25 seconds. Take 3-4 very slow but deep breaths to feel your breathing mechanics in more detail. Now we know about your usual breathing technique. In order to be totally certain, you can ask other people to observe how you breathe when you are not aware about your breath (e.g., during sleep, while reading, studying, etc.).
If you breathe using the upper chest, your blood gets less oxygen for body tissues and organs and your internal organs (the kidneys, liver, stomach, colons, and many others) accumulate toxic products due to stagnation in the lymph nodes. Why? This is because the diaphragm is a pump for the lymphatic system and 60% of body lymph nodes are located under the diaphragm.
These points probably don't seem like a big deal but the actual truth is
that they all are part of our total health now and when we become
older. The real truth is that you need to take care of your body and
what is taking place inside of it. Even tiny changes can be indicators
of big breathing and health problems. Ask your physician what you really
need to test regularly and exactly what health and breathing issues you
need to closely monitor.
