How to Breathe For Maximum Body Oxygen Content (Breathing Patterns)

By Dr. Artour Rakhimov

Indeed, since low cell oxygen is the key factor that control heart disease, cancer, diabetes, asthma and many other chronic diseases, it is wise to think about best ways to deliver that oxygen to organs and tissues of the human body.

Hyperventilation and Low CO2: the Key Problems

The above graph is based on over 20 medical studies. It proves that modern people have ineffective breathing patterns. They breathe much more as compared with the medical norm. The scientific norm is six liters of air in one minute at rest. That is a tiny volume of air. In reality, it is so little that normal persons often do not notice their respiration.

Precisely what is incorrect in case of over-breathing or hyperventilation? In the first instance, normal breathing supplies close to greatest possible oxygenation of the arterial blood (about 97 percent). If we breathe more, we cut back oxygen content in the arterial blood. Precisely why? It is really simple to notice, that big or deep breathing is accomplished making use of the costal or chest muscles. Bottom divisions of human lungs do not acquire fresh air quantity with rich oxygen content. Thus, oxygenation of the arterial blood gets less.

Secondly, we actually diminish amount of carbon dioxide in the arterial blood. This product is a dilator of blood vessels and is indispensable for release of oxygen to organs (the Bohr effect). Positively, several hundreds of recent research publications have found that chronic over-breathing DIMINISHES oxygen content in the body. Therefore, the ineffective respiratory pattern leads to body lack of oxygen or hypoxia. Nevertheless, progression of nearly all chronic diseases, including arthritis, COPD, epilepsy, migraine, cancer, mental problems, heart disease, insomnia, asthma, CFS and numerous others is based on hypoxia.

Similar conclusions are right for irregular breathing patterns. The realm is often worse here. Disordered breathing further lessens blood oxygenation.

Here are 4 regular breathing patterns and their body oxygen levels.


Breathing Patterns

How to evaluate body oxygenation in seconds

To investigate and determine your breathing pattern and oxygenation of tissues, try the next test.

After your common breath out, pinch your both nostrils and measure duration of your discomfort-free breath hold. Take note that one’s respiratory pattern immediately after this test must always be the same as their breathing pattern before the tryout: no discomfort what-so-ever after the test.

This trial evaluates two of your values simultaneously. At first place, the final result quantifies oxygenation of the body. Also, it signifies how large and deep the personal breath pattern is.

As long as the breath pattern is normal, he must be able to keep the breath hold for up to forty seconds. If that person has only around 20 s, this person breathes around two times the clinical norm.

In relation to the sickened patients, their cells oxygen content is less: usually less than 20 sec. Medical research confirms presence of low body oxygen in the sick.

For example, persons with irregular and ineffective breath patterns have less than 20 seconds for their cells oxygen content. Most of these individuals can recondition their involuntary or automatic breath pattern using breathing retraining. Among the most professional breathing retraining techniques are: the Buteyko method, Amazing DIY breathing device, and Frolov breathing device. All these methods increase CO2 levels in the arterial blood and improve blood flow due to vasodilation.

In addition to above regular breathing patterns, there are many people (e.g., with sleep apnea) who suffer from irregular respiratory patterns.

Incredible hub....I have to give this a try!

It is not easy to get over 1 minutes of oxygen in the body. I think less than 1% of people get there.
