Two things you can do right now to improve your breathing is to nasal breathe and use the diaphragm to breath with.
The nose performs 30 different functions, preparing the air we breathe for the body. Breathing through the mouth does nothing to prepare the air.
Diaphragm breathing is how we are supposed to breathe and is very efficient. The alternative is chest breathing, which is a back-up system used when the diaphragm is not working well or during maximal physical exercise.
The 3 step Oxygen Advantage® program is about how the athlete breathes to maximize muscle oxygenation. It's all about the oxygen.
Step 3 of the Oxygen Advantage® program works on increasing the amount of oxygen the blood is capable of transporting to muscles by naturally increase blood hemoglobin.
Step 3 employs a special breathing technique that simulates high-altitude training, can be performed anywhere including sea-level, and can be easily incorporated into the athletes regular training program.
The Essential Breath™ program for snoring and sleep apnea is designed based on the science of breathing, directly targeting the root cause of most snoring and sleep apnea, which is how we breathe.
Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea are a function of too much air being inhaled through too small of an opening, the throat and nasal passages. Reducing the volume of air passing through the throat and nose lessens the snoring sound while minimizing throat and airway obstructions.
Central Sleep Apnea is the result of the medulla oblongata stopping/pausing the breathing muscles due to dangerously low body carbon dioxide levels. Changing how you breathe, especially while sleeping, resolves low body carbon dioxide levels and stops the breathing pauses associated with Central Sleep Apnea.
The Essential Breath™ program for snoring and sleep apnea works on breathing mechanics, balancing body carbon dioxide levels and adjusting breathing volume over the long-term.
The Essential Breath™ program for insomnia and sleep quality problems is designed based on the science of breathing.
This three step program directly targets the root cause of poor sleep and insomnia, which is how we breathe and it's impact on the neurons of the brain.
The Essential Breath™ program for insomnia and sleep quality problems works on breathing mechanics, retaining vital body gases that calm the nervous system including the brain and adjusting breathing volume to improve sleep quality over the long-term.
Breathing impacts body processes that support exercise performance. The goal is to optimize these body processes, directing energy to muscle activity.
Carbon dioxide is required to transfer oxygen from the blood (hemoglobin) to active muscles, the Bohr Effect. How you breathe during exercise affects the availability of carbon dioxide.
There are breathing techniques that simulate high-altitude training, improving body's oxygen transport capacity. These breathing techniques can be performed at any altitude, including at sea level, take 10-15 minutes a day and can easily be incorporated into the athlete's training regiment.
