Research shows that the loss of CO2 due to breathing dysfunction has the potential to affect all functions of the body, causing nebulous symptoms, ill-health, and poor performance. Despite medical literature for more than 150 years, this issue continues to be underestimated. Breathing is the most fragile of all human functions as it can easily become reactive, volitional, and habitual. Stress, emotion, perception, memories, trauma, illnesses, physical activity, competitive sports, occupational hazards (e.g., mask wearing, playing wind instruments), can change the natural breathing to become a learned behavior- a habit that deregulates the physiology, leaving an individual vulnerable to the onset of disease and deficits in functional performance.
Low CO2 due to unstable breathing and cumulative stress in the nervous system have been found to play a causative role in heart attacks, strokes, seizures, sleep disorders, neurodegenerative conditions (e.g., multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, dementia), and psychiatric disorders (anxiety, depression). Despite the efforts of many physicians worldwide to bring this issue to the surface, unfounded resistance continues to prevail because of the lack of awareness and knowledge. Fortunately, more providers are becoming informed and aware of the patient who does not respond well to traditional therapies. Assessing for breathing dysfunction is becoming common for those who care to take time to understand the patient with compassion.
Low CO2 in the body is a physiological stressors:
Decreases oxygen delivery
Affects electrolyte function
Reduces blood circulation
Impairs mental performance
Stresses the heart
Weakens the immune system
Affects pH balance
End-tidal carbon dioxide and heart rate variability monitoring allow you to perform precise breathing measures so you can control your progress during training sessions and at home, using our hardware and software training system. It also provides you with consistent feedback of breathing behaviors and stress patterns in various contexts and scenarios, allowing superior awareness and predictable performance. Our model of practice goes beyond relaxation, so you can employ adaptive breathing strategies so you can embrace life at its fullest potential. We offer a natural, non-toxic, non-invasive, and completely safe way of improving the way you feel and function. You gain knowledge and skills to have control over your physiology and how you begin to manage energy, vitality, inner peace, focus, confidence, and restorative sleep. Why settle for just managing stress? Our clients value performance and life as dynamic ever-evolving process. Our clients value healthy and natural choices to support their healthspan and lifespan.
Benefits of proper breathing and CO2 balance:
Improve concentrated focus
Increase energy and vitality
Improve sleep quality
Reduce high blood pressure
Create ease in the mind and body
Facilitate healing and recovery
CO2 is the chief regulator for
oxygen delivery to help
support proper cell function.
CO2 ensures proper blood circulation,
delivering oxygen and nutrients
to all cells in the body.
CO2 is a prime regulator of pH,
which is critical for healthy
functioning of bodily systems.
The body has the ability to heal, restore, and rejuvenate if we allow it. A distressed physiology, caused by chronic stress and breathing dysfunction, has no choice but to spend energy on survival, fight-or-flight response. Our services are dedicated to the correction of disordered breathing behaviors that result in CO2 depletion and stress loading in the autonomic nervous system. We offer a sophisticated, easy-to-use, data-based training program to help reduce physiological stress and improve the body's ability to find its own healing potential. We value health freedom and provide specialized intervention for the health-oriented and value-driven individuals who think outside the box.
"Carbon dioxide depletion due to disordered respiration is one the most overlooked problems in medicine despite the evidence in our literature. Respiras is pulmonary occupational therapy at its finest. I deeply appreciate Respiras' effort in health promotion, bringing a sophisticated data-based service to patients who want more and expect more.
"Respiras helps to re-establish normal physiology in a way that cannot be done with medications, psychotherapy, or even nutritional supplements. It is a critical and almost completely untapped source of treatment that merits further recognition and application to the medical issues that face us in the twenty-first century."
“When medical conditions have been adequately treated or ruled out, and inexplicable symptoms persist, a pattern of disordered habitual breathing should be questioned. Respiras Breathing's conservative approach that is science-based and patient-centered deserves praise and recognition in our ever-evolving medical community.”
