Chris Prokop interviews Dr. Artour Rakhimov, an individual coach of 2 World Champions. This breathing information helps to improve physical health and mental wellbeing due to special types of exercise and other types of physical activity. This same information can be used for diabetes, cancer, hypothyroidism, HIV-AIDS, COPD, asthma, chronic fatigue, heart disease, epilepsy, and many other health issues.
In this video, Dr. Artour Rakhimov addresses the question, “What are the health benefits of regular exercise? How to get maximum health benefits from exercise?”. From Dr. Artour Rakhimov’s experience with his students, he found that the key benefit of physical activity is to improve oxygen levels. This type of benefit is possible if exercise is performed in a specific way or with one ancient trick.
Previously in human history, our breathing patterns were much different. In the modern age, exercise is not correctly. Even in sporting contests most people breath through their mouths. If you look into dictionaries the definition of mouth breather from 50 to 70 years ago is a moron, imbecile and stupid person. When Dr. Artour Rakhimov read this, it came across as a shocking experience and for many others when he tells them. Mouth breathing was culturally and socially unacceptable. Also, people paid a lot more attention to these physical details.
Dr. KP Buteyko trained over 200 Soviet and Russian medical doctors with his breathing techniques. He found that breathing through your nose when exercising prevents exacerbations of diseases. Thousands of people die during or after exercise because of mouth breathing. While CO2 becomes much higher when breathing through the nose and oxygen levels improve. Here is more about benefits of physical activity: http://www.normalbreathing.com/benefits-of-physical-activity.php . The Spanish translation of this page “”Beneficios de la Actividad Física: Sólo si es respiración nasal 100%”” is here: http://www.respiracionnormal.org/beneficios-de-actividad-fisica/ .
When breathing through the nose and exercising at the same time, the heart rate drops significantly in comparison to breathing through the mouth. This can be tested on treadmills or any exercise machines that have heart rate monitors. Also, it has been tested that there are about 15 different physiological effects just from nose breathing during physical exercise.
The main benefit of physical exercise is to improve health and improve body-oxygen levels. There is a do it yourself breathing test that can be found on Normalbreathing.com and on this YouTube channel. People that do not exercise have a very low body-oxygen level. Students can get somewhere around 10 to 15 seconds on their CP test at best if they have very little exercise. These students would have about half an hour of daily physical exercise. Urban dwellers would have a bit of walking included in their daily schedules. To gain 20 seconds for the body oxygen test they need about 1 hour of intensive physical exercise. Also, about 1 hour to half an hour daily of mild exercise such as walking.
In order to achieve about 30 seconds for the body oxygen test younger people in their 30 and 20’s need 2 and a half hours of exercise. Elderly people would need 1 to 1 and half hours of exercise. At this stage, automatic breathing patterns become calmer and slower. Also, their quantity amount of sleep drops and people require about 6 hours of sleep. This provides them with more time for physical exercise.
Another great benefit is that students have much more energy and this allows them to exercise with more intensity. For ordinary people exercise can be very challenging and uncomfortable. Also, they breathe through their mouths while exercising which has drastic effects. Thus, an exercise program, when combined with breathing retraining, makes it a lot safer.
When students achieve 50 to 60 seconds, they sleep for about 4 hours. Exercise becomes very enjoyable. They exercise for around 2 and a half hours. If they do decide to take a day off, they still incorporate an activity such as walking into the day. In contrast, modern people find it too difficult because of their experience.
