The Respiration Training
The Respiration Training Device is a powerful modern device for breathing exercise. It is based on the findings of well-known Russian experts (the Buteyko method and the Strelnikova breathing exercises) and achievements of modern science.
Lungs ventilation and gas exchange between the body cells and the atmosphere occur during the process of breathing; the cells use oxygen, which is involved in the process of cellular metabolism. Carbon dioxide formed during the oxidation is partially used by the cells and partially removed through the lungs. Specialized organs (nose, lungs, diaphragm, heart) and cells (erythrocytes — red blood corpuscles containing hemoglobin, special protein for energy transferring, nerve cells that react to the content of carbon dioxide in blood-chemoreceptor of blood vessels, and brain nerve cells that form a respiratory center) are involved in the breathing process.
|Regular breathing||With Respiration Training Device|
|Frequency of breaths||14–18 per minute||4–6 per minute|
|Breathing volume per minute||7–9 l/min||4–4,5 l/min|
Formally the process of breathing can be divided into three major stages: external respiration, gas transportation (oxygen and carbon dioxide) by blood (between lungs and cells) and tissue respiration (oxidation of various substances in the cells). External respiration means gas exchange between the body and the surrounding atmosphere.
Transportation of gases by blood: the main carrier of oxygen is hemoglobin, a protein that is carried inside erythrocytes. With the aid of hemoglobin up to 20% of carbon dioxide is transported from tissues to lungs.“Tissues breathing” or «internal respiration». This process includes two stages:
gas exchange between the blood and tissues, oxygen consumption by cells,
carbon dioxide emission (intracellular, endogenous respiration).
In order to maintain good health, to keep fit and to sustain body health reserves it is necessary to keep lungs ventilation and gas exchange in good condition. This can be achieved by means of breathing exercises that change the common breathing patterns.
Medical practice knows several approaches to breathing exercises — hypoxic exercises, Buteyko method or hypercapnic exercises, eastern restorative breathing techniques based on the reduction of the rate of breathing, breathing techniques for reducing per-minute breathing volume, breathing exercises with breath resistance, breathing exercises using additional breathing space. The unique feature of Respiration Training Device is that it combines the best of all these techniques. The exercises with the Device are very easy. The device is filled with the needed amount of water and the patient starts breathing using the diaphragm.
The exercises with the Device are very easy. The device is filled with the needed amount of water and the patient starts breathing using the diaphragm. The patient can start with the mouth breathing. When breathing in through the mouth, the water in the device creates resistance. The exhale through the mouth should be slow and relaxed — it is the so-called expiration against resistance. In the course of regular exercising, the time of exhalation can be gradually increased up to 40-50 seconds.
Within 2-3 months of consistent practice , you will forever improve the efficiency of your breathing and as a result your health!
