Healthy breathing, in the context of respiratory science, is the proper balance of carbon dioxide levels in the range of 35-45 mmHg. Healthy breathing is adaptive and responsive while maintaining good physiology when active, resting, performing, and mentally focused. Good breathing is about improving chemistry to reduce stress, and optimize health and performance.
It is difficult to assess your own breathing on your own. We used specialized technology to help you measure the breathing in terms of carbon dioxide levels. Wrong breathing is CO2 depletion by breathing behaviors that override the natural breathing.
Breathing is involuntary and reflexive in nature. In the absence of organic disease, there is, however, another side of breathing that is influenced by illness, emotions, memory, trauma, perception, cognition, physical activity, and other occupational hazards. In other cases, it is the stress, fight-flight, response that causes the breathing to be reactive. If the stress is prolonged and repeated, then create bad breathing behaviors. The person is usually unaware of this problem, and it can happen at any age. The breathing only gets worse with time.
Deep breathing can cause in most cases a depletion of carbon dioxide in the exhale breath. This in turn stresses the physiology, alters the oxygen efficiency, limits the blood circulation, and impairs the pH of the blood to say the least. Deep breathing is not necessarily bad if it maintains good CO2 balance.

There are several types of breathing available to people. They all serve different functions and purposes. Yoga breathing has been helpful to some people, but it backfires on other people causing symptoms of dizziness, anxiety, fatigue, and mental distortion. Respiras breathing is a science-based approach that focuses on producing objective measures for CO2 monitoring and breathing patterns within specific targets. The main purpose is to improve physiology and decrease stress. Although it may be difficult to accept, yoga breathing can be detrimental if the breathing stresses the physiology by volitional mechanics of breathing that causes CO2 depletion and irregular breathing patterns that stress the physiology. Respiras Breathing supports good chemistry at all levels: rest, relaxation, work, exercise, fitness, sleep, and stress adaptation.
