7 main (unknown) health-destructive life style factors
Appearance and development of chronic diseases and symptoms, including fatigue, poor quality of sleep, mucus production, blocked nose, loss of vitality, anxiety, and confusion, are based on lowered body oxygenation. Cancer and heart disease, the main killers of modern people, are primarily based on tissue hypoxia (low cellular
Why modern man gets little, if any, benefits from exercise
Breathing and oxygenation in healthy and sick peopleIf you observe modern exercising people, you will see that over 97% of them breathe through the mouth. Is this a problem? Breathing is about oxygenation of tissues. Hence, let us consider oxygenation and breathing in health and disease.Clinical evidence clearly
Why modern people have poor posture
ObservationsBeing upright is and was the most natural body position. This was the norm during almost the entire history of humanity. Standing also was the norm in factories, plants, shops and offices up to the beginning of the 20th century. Most modern people prefer to sit. Moreover, we
How to exercise: the key (unknown) safety rule for people with poor health
We are all taught that physical exercise is good for us. It can sometimes produce numerous benefits and there is even anecdotal evidence that exercise saved lives of people with cancer, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and many other conditions. On the other hand, it is also known that
Cancer tumours grow during early morning hours
Hundreds of oncological studies proved that growth of malignant tumours primarily depends on tissue hypoxia, but oxygenation of the human body is easier to measure: after your usual exhalation, pinch the nose and hold the breath, but only until the first stress. This stress-free and easy test accurately
Why Chronic Diseases Worsen Quality of Sleep
Indeed, while it is well known to clinical physicians and nurses, modern official mainstream medicine cannot suggest the mechanism accountable for this phenomenon: sick people generally have worse quality of sleep.  Why do people with epilepsy, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, asthma, COPD and many other health conditions have
Diabetes is possible only in over-breathers
The international medical norm for breathing is 6 l/min at rest. A group of Italian medical researchers from the University of Ancona reported in the Chest magazine that 28 patients with diabetes breathed from 10 to 20 l/min (Tantucci et al, 1997).A more recent 2003 study found that
Simple Breathwork to Unblock the Stuffy Nose
Thousands of Soviet and Russian patients with asthma and other conditions have used this simple breathing exercise to clear their stuffy nose. The technique was developed by Russian doctors practicing the Buteyko self-oxygenation breathing technique. Over 150 MDs explained this breath work practice to their patients. In most
The best breathing exercise to prevent insomnia
There is a simple breathing exercise for insomnia developed by Russian doctors practicing the Buteyko holistic self-oxygenation therapy. The exercise was used by many thousands of people in Russia and taught to them by over 200 doctors. The exercise helps to fall asleep much sooner. (I translated many
Why Nose Breathing at Exercise Is Crucial for Cystic Fibrosis Treatment
Recent breakthroughs in cystic fibrosis treatments and research Several medical studies very recently (2009-2011) discovered that CFTR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator), the cystic fibrosis mutation protein gene, is controlled by oxygen pressure in body cells (see references below). While most people, including many medical professionals, believe that
Heart disease means heavy breathing 24/7
Medical research clearly showed that all heart patients breathe way too much even at rest.In 1995 the British Heart Journal published a study (Clark et al, 1995) done by researchers from the National Heart and Lung Institute in London. The breathing rate of all 88 heart patients at
Best Methods to Avoiding Common Flu and Cold Include Improved Oxygen Content In Body Cells
When it comes to staying healthy, everybody knows precisely how vital it is to have adequate vitamin C to reinforce the body. People are informed again and again how beneficial vitamin C is to keeping yourself healthy as well as strong. What’s the very first thing that you're
How to prevent mouth breathing during the night
Mouth breathing drastically reduces body oxygenation: the amount of freely available oxygen in tissues is usually reduced almost two times when the person starts to breathe through the mouth, for example, during sleep. Epidemiological studies clearly proved that deaths from heart attacks, asthma, COPD, epilepsy, complications of diabetes,
Which exercise parameters increase body oxygenation
Dozens of published medical studies clearly proved that body oxygenation, which is reflected by stress-free breath-holding time, is the best indicator of physical health. Among numerous varieties of the breath holding time test, the stress-free version of the test done after usual exhalation, most accurately reflects body oxygenation.
Typical Breathing Pattern of Sick People
If we consider automatic breathing patterns in sick people with various health problems, virtually all health conditions are characterized by ineffective breathing. Generally, many people know that people with asthma, COPD, panic/anxiety and cardiovascular diseases breathe too fast and inhale too much air even at rest while sitting.
Walking and Exercise with Nose (Not Mouth) Breathing Leads to Slimming Down
Millions of people use physical exercise and try to lose weight or get slim, but cannot succeed due to one serious mistake. There are several essential differences if we compare effects of exercise (e.g., walking) on health and body oxygen levels in obese people. Why could body oxygen
Abnormal breathing pattern causes asthma and attacks
Here is a summary of five published studies related to breathing rates (or minute ventilation expressed in liters of air per one minute) in asthmatics at rest (when they do not experience problems with asthma).  *One row corresponds to one medical study/publicationCondition         Ventilation        Number of patients       ReferencesNorm              
Severe Cough Means Reduced Oxygen Content In Tissues
Clinical reflections of many hundred Russian medical doctors propose that reoccuring issues with cough occur only in individuals with lower oxygen content in cells and organs. Consider these important scientific findings in more detail. We can take first step with popular knowledge about the mechanism that creates severe
Exercise is joy only when body oxygenated at rest
Most modern people can testify that physical exercise is not a pleasant experience. Over 200 MDs, practicing the Buteyko self-oxygenation breathing method, and other health professionals performed many millions of simple body oxygenation tests (stress-free variation of the breath holding time test done after usual exhalation and without
