Theory of Disease as a Self-Protective Mechanism
If you know nothing about physiology, don’ worry. Even though it took me many years to figure our what I’m about to say, I will say it in laymens terms. If you are trained in anything medical related, it will be very difficult to believe this. After learning about all the things that go wrong, it rarely occurs to the educated person that things don’t go wrong per se.
So why on earth would there be any benefit to the above mentioned diseases? Instead of dealing with them individually, let’s deal with them together. What all these diseases have in common is simply that the end result is that the blood flowing through the body decreases.
But why would it be beneficial for the blood to flow less? Did you ever wonder why it is that during exercise, you feel your heart beating faster? That is because the blood needs to flow more to keep up with the demands of your cells.
But what would happen if your blood flowed that fast while you are resting? In short, you would be dead pretty quickly. It is not true that the more blood flowing the better. It is true that there is an ideal amount of blood flowing based on how your cells are working.
Let’s relate blood flow to how fast you breathe. First of all, breathing and blood flow are related. If you hold your breath, blood will rush to your head. That is because increased circulation has a similar effect as decreased breathing rate. The less oxygen moved through the lungs, the more that needs to be moved by the blood. The inverse is also true. If you start breathing as fast as you can, your circulation will slow down for the same reason. Eventually you will get light headed due to lack of blood, and if you keep breathing fast (assuming you don’t have an asthma attack first), you will pass out. Once you are on the ground, gravity will get some blood to the head.
Here is an illustration of how this class of so-called diseases works. The pattern of stress gets the engines pumping. Your metabolism goes into anaerobic/sugar metabolism mode for quick energy. You start breathing faster and your circulation increases in anticipation of physical exertion. This discrepency between perceived and actual danger is a result of an inaccurate perception of our environment. Your cells go on your perception, since that is all they can go on. The combination of faster breathing/sugar content/faster circulation without the anticipated activity to balance the chemistry, the body’s chemistry gets messed up. Low carbon dioxide is the classic result, even though this is very difficult to test for directly.
So what does your body do?
Besides finding ways to slow the breathing (mucous/asthma/apnea/bronchitic/emphesema..), it finds ways to slow the circulation by placque, scarring, and holes in the heart. The disease of choice is based on age (fetus/child/adult), and genes. It’s that simple.
I mentioned migraines since they are a good illustration. One mechanism to slow the circulation is to narrow blood vessels (initial event in migraines) . However, when the stress which keeps the blood vessels narrowed stops, the blood vessels relax and cause a sort of wave of blood that irritates the blood vessels themselves. If the conditions necessitating slower circulation persists, the body will find more permanent ways to keep the blood vessels more narrow like plaque(atherosclerosis)/decreased elasticity(arteriosclerosis).
Instead of dealing with these thing one by one, it is much more effective addressing the pattern that necessitates these compensation mechanisms. Notice that all these patterns include an inaccurate perception of our environment. The stress reaction is not bad. It’s just bad when it is not needed.
Training with the Respiration Training Device reverses this entire pattern. You are essentially creating a need for better circulation, and your body will find a way to give it to you.The pattern is reversed in several ways. First, the precise amount of resistance isolates the diaphragmatic breathing muscles, which facilitate oxygen metabolism. That alone will help break the cycle, but the Respiration Training Device attacks it on more levels. The water acts as filter, making the air you breathe slightly low in oxygen and high in carbon dioxide. This also facilitates oxygen metabolism by what is called the Bohr effect. Third, doing the device forces your mind to relax better than anything I’ve tried before.
It’s not that you are being fixed by some man-made technology. It’s more that you are using technology to allow your natural physiology perform the way it is supposed to.
Bronchitis/Asthma/Emphysema/Sinusitis/Chronic Cough/Snoring/Sleep Apnea
It might be hard to imagine these diseases having some benefit at first, but read on. At the moment you understand why nature allows these things to happen, you will immediately see why the standard treatment is so harmful, and why the approach offered here is so effective.
COPD refers to a category of diseases including asthma, bronchitis and emphysema. In each of these cases, the affected person ends up with less air exchange between the body and the air.
The lungs, which are where exchange takes place, develops a barrier. In the case of asthma, the muscles around the bronchioles contract, stopping air from flowing. In the case of bronchitis, the mucous acts as a barrier. Emphysema also prevents air exchange becasue the normal lung tissue is partly replaced by scar.
Sleep apnea is almost the same as COPD in the sense that the result is the same. It is a direct way to slow the loss of carbon dioxide. Also, when mucous is constantly produced, some people develop chronic cough.
But Why Are These Conditions Necessary?
Victims of each of these diseases hyperventilate, or breathe extra fast. That is the surprising truth discovered by Russian physician Professor Konstantin Buteyko, who studied breathing physiology for 30 years. But why would you, a person seeking help for your COPD, hyperventillate? The answer to that question determines what you do to reverse your COPD.
“Why would I hyperventilate in the first place?”
Hyperventilation begins when we anticipate trouble or worry about something. It is the body’s way of preparing for physical exertion. But when we hyperventillate without the exertion, our carbon dioxide reserves become gradually depleted. Not a big deal you think? Read on.
Carbon dioxide is used for virtually every chemical reaction in the body. It is used as a buffer in the blood to prevent sudden changes of blood chemistry. It is a building block for every tissue in our body. Nature strongly protects against loss of too much carbon dioxide.
How Nature Protects Us From Hyperventillation
Nature preserves carbon dioxide in many ways, but the most direct methods are COPD and sleep apnea. Here are some facts: Low carbon dioxide causes spasm of the muscles around the broncioles. Low carbon dioxide causes mucous production. Low carbon dioxide causes scar formation. Low carbon dioxide causes you to stop breathing. Do any of these things sound related? All of these ‘diseases’ help restore carbon dioxide levels
Traditional treatments are advertised like this: Mucous bad. Let’s prevent mucous produciton. Bronchial spasm bad, lets give a drug to prevent it. But what do you think your body is going to do about your low carbon dioxide now? It will have to find some other way to deal with it. That is precicely why these ‘treatments’ are so ineffective and harmful. They stop your body from fixing itself, and ignore the thing that is really wrong.
We actually have a way to fix the low carbon dioxide problem, which is primarily caused by habitual hyperventillation, which is caused primarily by habitual stress. It is called Respiration Training Device. Instead of expensive drugs that don’t work, we prefer to train you to breathe properly. Click here to read more about Respiration Training Device. The comfort of knowing your were built very well, as explained in our session, is often reported as being more valuable than the cessation of symptoms.
Arteriosclerosis/High Blood Pressure
If you know nothing about physiology, don’ worry. Even though it took me many years to figure our what I’m about to say, I will say it in laymens terms. If you are trained in anything medical related, it will be very difficult to believe this. After learning about all the things that go wrong in the body, it is hard to conceive that our design is good.
Stress and Blood Flow
Suppose you have a repetitive habit of getting worked up about things you can’t resolve. For example, while in the car you are thinking about how late you are. At that point, your heart starts beating faster. You are preparing for some event. However, the actual physical activity doesn’t occcur. If the physical activity did occur, the cells would produce carbon dioxide, which would balance the carrying away of carbon dioxide by the blood. But when the increased circulation is not warranted, your blood chemistry as well as your cell chemistry is off.
When this occurs daily, or hourly, your body must find some way to deal with it. Essentially, decreased circulation is the end result. Interestingly, the low carbon dioxide created in this situation actually facilitates the smooth muscle around the blood vessels contracts, thereby limiting circulation. When the blood vessels need to be narrow for a long period of time, the muscle is replaced by scar, so the body can maintain narrow vessels without so much effort. This is the scar formation found in arteriosclerosis. At first glance, one might see the this as a disease, but after studying circulation for so many years, I see it is an unfortunate but necessary symptom under certain situations. Once the blood vessels lose their normal elasticity, the heart has to work harder to get the blood to the whole body. The high blood pressure, again, is a necessary compensation. It doesn’t make the doctor happy, but that alternative would be worse. You need the high blood pressure to get the blood to all the cells.
How High Cholesterol Keeps You Alive
Your blood vessels have to fulfill conflicting roles. They must be flexible to adjust to changing needs. They must be strong to that they don’t break and you don’t bleed too much. Hold on to that thought
Oxygen is like a double edged sword. On the one hand it is able
to burn calories to give energy. On the other hand, too much of it is very explosive, and comes in the for of what are called free radicals. You need oxygen in your cells, but you don’t want too much of it in your blood.
Whenever you are stressed or worried, eat way too much sugar, or if you are exercising at very high intensity, you breathe really fast. When you breathe really fast, you breathe in a lot of oxygen. That oxygen will form a lot of free radicals. Those free radicals damage blood vessels.
Cholesterol. The Antidote to Stress
At the precise moment the conditions causing a lot of free radicals exist, your body intentionally and deliberately increases the amount of cholesterol in the blood. That very same cholesterol just happens to be used to repair blood vessels. Coincedence? That’s for you to decide.
Again, we are more interested in treating the overall patterns necessitating this condition. You can see on video that explains the above mentioned pattern, as well as a Respiration Training Device to reverse the pattern. In no case would we treat the cholesteral issue directly. High Cholesterol protects your life.
The irony is that cholesterol drugs are marketed to prevent strokes. You are told that too much cholesterol clogs your arteries, and you should lower your cholesterol so the arteries in your brain don’t suddenly clog.
What you are probably not told is that even though 2/3’s of strokes are from a clog, they aren’t nearly as serious as the other 1/3 of strokes from a bleeding. Bleeding strokes are often deadly, and result from artificially low cholesterol.
It’s not that high cholesterol is good. It is just that it is necessary when you have a pattern of training improperly, ineffecient metabolism, or chronic stress.
Neck and Back Pain
Trimming up sounds great, but how can the same device fix my back and neck? Abdominal breathing puts almost no strain on the neck. It is almost universal that people with neck and shoulder pain are chest breathers because chronic chest breathing creates a tremendous burden on the neck. As soon as abdominal breathing becomes automatic, that burden is literally lifted from the neck.
At the same time, the breathing muscles are largely responsible for stabilizing the low back. Those muscles are designed to go out of commission temporarily after injury or irritation of any abdominal or pelvic organs. However, when the irritation persists, the weakness of the breathing muscles actually becomes a new source of back weakness. The Respiration Training Device breaks that cycle by strengthening the back stabilizing muscles, which are also breathing muscles.
Here is the beauty of the Respiration Training Device. Because breathing is done with a small amount of resistance, you need only train once a day, starting with 5-10 minutes. Who doesn’t have time for that? Training is recommended before bed and has consistently resulted in a night of deep sleep.
Why We Over Breathe
When we anticipate a crisis, we breathe faster to prepare for physical exertion. Over breathing occurs whenever the alarm reaction occurs without the physical activity.
Chest breathing is the mechanical ramification of over breathing. Breathslim strengthens your belly breathing muscles so effectively that most patients are able to reverse years of habitual chest breathing within a month.
It is very common for people to be constantly on edge without even knowing it. This mental stress always causes faster breathing. But the inverse is also true. When we let go mentally, we breathe slower. When you train with the Respiration Training Device, you are learning to mentally let go, and your breathing rate is used for feedback. We have found the Frolov device to be the most effective method to reverse years of habitual stress. Our clients look forward to the relaxing breathing training, and learn to operate in a calmer mode throughout the day.
When we over breathe with our lungs, our cells are unable to breathe as well. This is a paradox known as the Bohr Effect. Frolov has found a way to expose all our cells to the natural environment that they are exposed to when we breathe in a relaxed way. As you train with the Respiration Training Device the cells begin to work much more efficiently because they gain access to necessary oxygen.
- Improved Sleep: When we restore normal, relaxed breathing, circulation to the brain improves and results in improved sleep.
- Normal external respiration allows normal cellular respiration. Normal cellular respiration is much more efficient because it relies on an oxygen metabolism. You notice more consistent energy.
- Over breathing forces the cells to operate with limited oxygen. Sugar is the fuel when oxygen is missing. When proper breathing is restored, oxygen can now enter the cell and you will notice your sugar and carb cravings go away.
- Training with Breathslim allows your carbon dioxide reserves to finally be restored. Normal carbon dioxide levels prevent excess mucous, bronchial spasm, and apnea: We predict a reversal of all respiratory related conditions in clients who train properly.
- Perhaps the most exciting benefit is the improvement in circulation. Over breathing means blood vessel damage from free radicals. Training with Breathslim has the opposite effect. More antioxidants and fewer free radicals means less blood vessel damage. When carbon dioxide levels are normalized in the blood, which occurs with the training, blood vessels relax and circulation improves. You might notice better skin, improved blood pressure, improved circulation everywhere but especially to the heart, lungs, eyes, kidneys, and brain.
