Diseases and Conditions treated with Breathing Training are not limited to Asthma and Allergies. The scope of breathing training is very broad but the conditions shown here are among the most common diseases and conditions seen and that do respond positively to Breathing Training.
Poor breathing patterns result in immune system failure which can cause infections, swollen nasal tissue and polyps causing nasal congestion, sinusitis and rhinitis. Consistent use of breathing techniques easily and quickly changes the health of all nasal passages.
Erratic poor breathing causes blood vessels to contract and blood pressure to increase. Learning to breathe correctly normalizes internal body gases and this can provide adequate carbon dioxide to free the smooth muscle around the blood vessels. Contraction will relax and begin to normalize blood pressure. Continued use of techniques keeps blood pressure normal.
Spasms of the blood vessels in the brain can develop from fast breathing. Hyperventilation increases our breathing rate and volume changing negatively our internal gas balance or Ph. Correcting breathing rate by learning and using breathing techniques we can calm and relieve the spasms and pain and begin to decrease the frequency of headaches.
Fibromyalgia, muscle pain can develop when breathing hyperventilation causes muscle cell oxygenation to diminish. When a fast breath rate is habitual this chronic condition can become almost a permanent condition of our health. Breathing retraining through use of breathing techniques will improve muscle oxygenation and will relieve muscle pain.
Leg cramps and restless legs is caused by deficient O2 in the muscle tissue cells. Breathing correctly insures leg muscle tissues oxygenation levels, increasing nerve supply and keeping leg muscles relaxed.
The smooth muscle wrapping over many organs of our digestive system requires large amounts of Carbon Dioxide. Correct breathing assures that CO2 is present in adequate amounts to keep airways open and functioning.
With poor breathing habits, the sympathetic nervous system is activated and contributes to poor nerve input in hands and fingers. Learning correct breathing insures activation of the parasympathetic part of the nervous system and will increase blood, and oxygen flow to those areas.
When there are extremely low levels of oxygen in the cells in large areas of our body, there because of poor breathing habits, fatigue will follow. Use of Buteyko breathing will increase cellular oxygenation to the whole body.
