In this video, Dr. Artour Rakhimov and Volker Schmitz discuss breathing retraining and its relation to treatment of seizures and epilepsy naturally, as well as using the Buteyko Method. They expand on their experiences with students that had this condition. There are several pages on Normalbreathing.com with medical studies related to seizures. The studies show how hyperventilation causes seizures. People that slow down their breathing patterns 24/7 to the medical norm can eliminate all their symptoms of epilepsy and be seizure-free. Also, they will not need to use their medication any longer. This has worked in 100 % of the cases for Dr. Rakhimov’s students. More about how we treated our students: http://www.normalbreathing.com/d-seizures-treatment.php .
In the beginning of a breathing retraining course, students with epilepsy breathe at least two times more than the medical norm. Their results for the natural control pause test or the body-oxygen test is very low, at about 10-20 seconds There are videos on Dr. Artour’s YouTube channel and pages on his website Normalbreathing.com explaining the Buteyko CP test. Students can have around 10 seconds on the CP test if they have severe seizures. People with mild forms of epilepsy have about 15 seconds.
It usually takes them a week long of breathing retraining practice from 90 minutes to 2 hours to start changing their breathing patterns. The general progress depends on their specific teacher’s requirements and get treated or cured in about 2-8 weeks, even for older and elderly people in 80s and 90s.
About 90% to 100% of people have an attack from an over breathing test or hyperventilation provocation test. This shows directly how hyperventilation is harmful to epileptic patients due to reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2).
Most people can stop their seizures by controlling their breathing when they feel the beginning symptoms of an attack. Slowing down their breathing by the reduced breathing technique can stop an attack or minimize the harsh symptoms of seizures in a fast natural way. Also, it helps epilepsy patients recover from the negative effects that occur the day after having a seizure. Reduced breathing of the Buteyko technique is just a temporary technique for these symptoms.
Volker Schmitz had a student that had sickle cell anemia and epilepsy. He got sick and stopped all breathing retraining because of his doctor’s recommendation. In about a week of stopping breathing retraining his body-oxygen level dropped to a seriously low number. At this time he had a epileptic seizure. Once he got back to breathing retraining he did not experience any more seizures. Now he has a morning control pause of 40 to 50 seconds. Maintaining this number ensures he won’t have any more seizures at all.
When students slow down their breathing to about 20 seconds on the CP test, they might already not have any seizures. They might still require their medications at this level. These students would notice a huge decrease in the intensity and the length of their seizures naturally. Just change the way you breathe!
