How’s your breathing right now in these surreal times? Are you over-breathing?
A wellness company dedicated to educating the general public on the benefits of optimal breathing has reported an increase in the number of people booking in and presenting with hyperventilation syndrome.
Reset Breathing which helps clients with breathing re-training as the foundation for good health maintains that hyperventilation syndrome can take hold due to a habit based on a stressful or hectic lifestyle, a nasal obstruction or asthma.
Founder Joel Jelen said: “Some people are known to have a genetic pre-disposition to the condition. Those who hyperventilate often do so by learning to breathe dysfunctionally out of habit via their chest and mouth, breathing with a speed and volume in excess of what the body needs.”
Aside from creating poor oxygenation of the body’s cells and tissues, experts maintain that over-breathing can be the underlying cause of more than 150 different conditions (Source: Dr. Len McEwan).
Jelen adds: “The good news is that slowing down your breathing with the help of skilled guidance through breathing exercises is now becoming more widely available and recognised. The exercises not only regulate the amount of air breathed, but also help retrain people’s breathing, as highlighted by Patrick McKeown in his seminal book Close Your Mouth.
“I’ve met and helped many clients improve their mental and physical health through administering the exercises. With their commitment, it enables sufferers of this often debilitating condition to optimise the amount of air that reaches their alveoli…small sacs in the lungs that allow for the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide creating a better uptake of oxygen.”
Reset reports that the prognosis for sufferers is generally very good because the breathing exercises create wider improvements in the body’s respiratory centre, hence the term ‘re-training the breathing.’
“The biggest challenge for breathing educators and people within the general population is awareness of the condition, which often goes undetected or misdiagnosed,” believes Jelen.
Reset undertakes a questionnaire with clients that assesses their breathing pattern with typical responses of the sufferer including air hunger, unreasonable breathlessness, the feeling of a restricted chest plus comments such “I don’t breathe enough” and “sometimes I have to remember to breathe.”
