The Role Of Stress and CO2 Depletion in Chronic Diseases
Disturbed breathing can aggravate and accelerate the progression of chronic diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, ALS, Dementia, COPD, Lyme's disease, and cardiovascular conditions. Helping the body decrease physiological stress, improve restorative sleep, and increase coping skills has proven to be essential to reducing symptom severity and improving functional capacity.
