In this fifth video “Dysautonomia/POTS Treatment“, Dr. Artour Rakhimov and Volker Schmitz continue to discuss POTS and dysautonomia dysfunction. Causes of dysautonomia and POTS as well as effective treatment solutions are discussed, while the most successful method to treat these disorders is breathing retraining. The relation between breathing retraining and dysautonomia is clearly shown in the way modern people breath. Dysautonomia generally became much more known about 50 to 60 years ago.
In recent years, doctors started using various tests to detect dysautonomia. Only a phone app is required to take these tests. In 100 to 150 years ago, people breathed according to the medical norm and they would take longer pauses in between breathing.
There are previous videos on Dr. Artour Rakhimov’s channel related to the Buteyko Table of Health Zones. It is one of Dr. Buteyko’s most important contributions. Also, it describes each level of health and its related body-oxygen level.
Medical studies have shown that hyperventilation leads to a spontaneous and synchronized firing of neurons. More information relating to various medical studies can be found on Dr. Artour Rakhimov’s webpage Normalbreathing.com. When people hyperventilate, it creates an abnormal state of the whole nervous system. At any moment of time, some type of weak signal that is not supposed to be increased, suddenly gives out a strong response.

The solution suggested for dysautonomia is to retrain breathing patterns and this makes the nervous system much more stable. The balance between the parasympathetic and the sympathetic nervous system becomes much more natural. People become much more tolerant to physical exercise and doing other activities for much longer. They achieve this without negative effects. In contrast, someone that is sick can feel like they can’t work as long. These people can get anxiety or other negative symptoms. By practicing breathing retraining the ability to work longer increases. Dr. Artour Rakhimov has had many students that completely became cured of their symptoms.
There are many people that can have different health problems such as hypertension, later stages of cancer, asthma and other health issues while having psychological problems in addition to their health state. Many people are not even aware of these problems. They might be more focused to address their health issues instead. After breathing retraining many students notice that they feel much calmer, their sleep becomes much better and they achieve many more positive effects. These secondary breathing effects can be called natural side effects of breathing retraining. The normalization of the nervous system is one of these very strong effects of breathing retraining.
