In this video, Dr. Artour Rakhimov and Volker Schmitz, discuss the relation of breathing retraining and the famous Buteyko method to sleep apnea. Dr. Artour Rakhimov has practical experience of observing many students with sleep apnea. Some of the students even had to use CPAP machines. When students with sleep apnea change their automatic or unconscious breathing patterns, they can get regular sleep again. These people hyperventilate during sleep and from losing carbon dioxide they stop breathing. They stop breathing for about 5 to 10 seconds. From these episodes, the person gets in a state of stress, but they still do not wake up. This prevents them from entering the deep stages of sleep and the state that allows a relaxation of muscles. All these positive effects do not take place because there are many episodes of non-breathing during the night.
This page from NornalBreathing site is about treatment and causes of sleep apnea – “Treat Sleep Apnea with Breath Retraining [100% Success Rate]”: http://www.normalbreathing.com/s/treat-sleep-apnea.php .
People with sleep apnea become very tired from a lack of proper sleep. It becomes dangerous to operate a vehicle. They start sleeping during the day and they frequently experience mental fog. Medicine does not have the best medication for these individuals. Machines are used that force people to breathe normal breathing patterns. Better machines recently became available that allowed people to breathe normally. The machines get into action when the person stops breathing. Also, the machines record a score for the quality of breathing experienced. Yet, it is still a machine that does not solve the health issue in the long term.
The solution that Dr. Artour Rakhimov’s students experienced is by improving their body-oxygen level or the control pause level. At a certain stage close to the medical norm, at 6 L per minute or 10-12 breaths per minute in the morning at rest, they stop needing the sleep apnea machine. This exciting solution is completely natural. People with sleep apnea usually like the machine in the beginning stages. They enjoy the deeper stages of sleep, but desire a proper solution. Dr. Artour Rakhimov uses a variety of different breathing techniques including his own DIY device, the Frolov device and the Buteyko method. Also, he incorporates the ketogenic diet or low carb diet in his courses.

There are many factors that lead to this health condition. Changes applied to being overweight, sleep positions and managing many lifestyle choices are required to overcome sleep apnea. Prevention of mouth breathing at night is required. It is one of the most important factors and it is explained in other videos on this YouTube channel. Mouth taping is a technique that is used to prevent mouth breathing. All students that improved their breathing to the official medical norm in the morning allowed them to not use the CPAP machine.
