The Buteyko breathing technique, the Russian physiologist, Professor Konstantin Buteyko breathing, created by people with asthma and other respiratory diseases. The principle of this method is the breathing that most people breathe with respiratory diseases by inhalation and the air so much the amount of carbon dioxide in the human body to decrease.
Why is carbon dioxide important?
If your CO2 level is not necessary at the same level, while the oxygen is in the process to be carried in the blood and is not for tissues and organs in the human body. The minimum requirements induce increased respiration and decreased even more CO2, a classic vicious circle.
Second carbon dioxide expands the smooth muscles around the airways, arteries and capillaries to tighten to induce the reduction of CO2 levels the muscles. When these blood vessels narrow arteries that have the potential to higher heart rate, higher blood pressure and has triggered an increased level of respiration.
It also helps to balance the body pH is very important to keep a healthy immune system.
Aid of carbon dioxide in the body’s production of cortisol, the body’s natural steroid that is necessary to control inflammation.
CO2 is used in the body to reduce the production of mucus in the airways resulting less restricted.
The Buteyko Method is an exercise regime for the breathing of a man is so designed that the amount of inhaled air to recycle your own body, to reduce it will increase the level of carbon dioxide. The sequence consists of a check for your pulse before and after the effective exercise of a check for the so-called break-control and breathing exercises known effective
The pause control is actually a measure of carbon dioxide in the dependent alveoli apnea comfortable, but it is not registered immediately after taking a big breath of air, and his decision when the air is expelled through the lungs during normal breathing. The decrease in the time you can expect after the reduction of CO2 in the body. The desired proportion of CO2 is 5.5, which again shows a control pause of 40 seconds, a pause control 10 seconds a CO2 figure of 4.0 percent. After Buteyko teachers, with regular small Buteyko breathing exercises are for people with asthma find that their PC is set to increase over time, and designed in parallel to suffer asthma symptoms decreased.
The intent of the Buteyko breathing method is to increase the concentration of carbon dioxide from at least five and a half percent to a break, to give 40 seconds of control.
With continued practice the Buteyko breathing exercises, the respiratory center was finally able to accept a higher concentration of carbon dioxide. Remember, this is the level of carbon dioxide, that decides the need to inhale.
