Dr. Artour Rakhimov Interview: How To Breathe For Health (Buteyko Method)
This is Dr. Artour Rakhimov’s Interview for Extreme Health Radio extremehealthradio.com. The title of this show was “How To Breathe For Health: Buteyko Method”.
During last 100 years, humans experienced large changes in the way they breathe. Modern people breathe nearly 2-3 times more air than people living at the beginning of the 20th century. Dozens of clinical studies showed that people with chronic diseases breathe even heavier. All these basic facts related to breathing can be found on the Homepage of http://www.normalbreathing.com/.
What are the effects of over-breathing or breathing too much air (known as hyperventilation)? Breathing more air at rest decreases CO2 levels in the lungs and body cells. As a result, arteries and arterioles constrict causing decreased oxygen transport for tissues of the body. That reduces immunity and provides conditions for inflammation, frequent respiratory (upper chest) infections, growth of tumors and other abnormal effects.
These physiological facts were known to Dr. Buteyko who developed the Buteyko breathing technique to treat chronic diseases. He trained over 150 medical professionals to apply this natural healing therapy on nearly half million of people in the USSR and, later, Russia.
The Buteyko method is mostly known for treating respiratory conditions, such as asthma and respiratory infections. There extra techniques here: treatment of chest infections, but the Buteyko technique also helps with many other conditions.
Dr. Artour Rakhimov created and developed world’s largest website devoted to breathing retraining. About 500 web pages of this site provides analysis and practical tools related to lifestyle factors and how they interact and influence our breathing. This relates to physical exercise, sleep, diet and many other factors of life.
