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
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
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
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
Usual Breathing Patterns in 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
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
Painless childbirth: reality for hundreds of Russian women
Most women can testify that childbirth is their most painful life experience in terms of physical pain. However, over 200 Russian MDs, practicing the Buteyko self-oxygenation breathing therapy, found that superior body oxygenation guarantees painless childbirth.The Buteyko breathing method is officially approved, by the Russian Ministry of Health,
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
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
Breathing for maximum brain oxygenation
Breathing and the brainOur breathing pattern has profound effects on the brain. Unnoticeable changes in breathing (when we believe that our breathing is OK) can reduce oxygenation and blood supply by 20-30%. How should we breathe, day and night, so that to have maximum oxygenation of the brain?
How Cancers Leads to Poor Sleep (with Solutions)
Cancer patients suffer from insomnia and problems with sleep. This link is well documented in recent medical stuides (Berger et al, 2009; Hearson-Sawatzky, 2008; Lee, 2004; Roscoe et al, 2007; Sateia et al, 2008). Progression of cancer further impairs sleeping problems. Cancer sleep and cancer insomnia can become
Prevent heart attacks using advanced breath control
Breathing and the heartOur breathing pattern has profound effects on the heart. In fact, about a century ago western doctors developed and studied the science which was called "cardiorespiratory physiology". Why? Because of the close connections between cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Yale University Professor Yandell Henderson (1873-1944) was
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
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
Cancer likes mouth-breathers
The key cause of cancer, on a cellular level, is known to professional oncologists for more than 70 years. Dr. Otto Warburg got a Nobel Prize for this discovery. He wrote in his article "The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer" (1966), "Cancer, above all other diseases, has
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
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
In super-health we require only 2 hours of perfect sleep
It is known that modern people sleep, on average, about 7.5 hours per day. Studies also found that length of sleep varies from person to person and generally gets shorter with aging: infants can sleep up to 12-18 hours per day, young children for 9-12 hours, teenagers about
