Coherent breathing

This breathing can be described as breath holding at residual volume. This breathing is the easiest way to produce brief, intermittent hypoxia. This breathing is done coherently and in a rhythmic fashion with the same counts to inhale and exhale for 45 breaths (30 slow and 15 fast). After a few minutes of breathing, take 2 full deep breaths and on final expiration let all the air out and hold it for a brief hold period to get into intermittent hypoxic states and then take a full recovery breath for 20 sec.

This breathing is the easiest way to get into intermittent hypoxic states which are responsible for; production of nitric oxide, migration of stem cells, production of erythropoietin, production of mitochondria, etc.

These are the reasons why intermittent hypoxia is now being used to treat multiple degenerative
diseases and for the enhancement of athletic and sports performances.

Disease conditions where self-administered brief intermittent hypoxia can work are type 2 diabetes mellitus, coronary artery disease, osteoarthritis, Parkinson's disease, chronic renal failure and many more

Mobilization of stem cells from the bone marrow can come to use in the therapy of a number of degenerative diseases, including type-2 diabetes mellitus and Idiopathic Parkinson’s disease and Osteoarthritis. Indeed this is the frontier area of research these days. Scientists are trying to harvest stem cells from the bone marrow, suitably multiply them, and then plant them at the place of need.

Transportation of stem cells from the bone marrow to the tissues can be hindered at the oxygen levels prevalent in the bloodstream. It can be facilitated by brief intermittent hypoxia. Intermittent hypoxia therapy has been tried, developed, and practiced by Russian scientists for the last 50 years,

Scientists have started realizing the multifold benefits of brief intermittent hypoxia. It is now well recognized that intermittent hypoxia leads to adaptive responses in the tissues which protect them from ischemic and other injuries

Breathing brings attention to create positive intention by focusing on compassion, caring, love and gratitude, and other states of appreciation. We are going to do slow, effortless, and deep conscious breathing by following counts to inhale through our nose and exhale through our mouth. Every breath we take needs to start from the expansion of our belly first, then our ribs followed by the chest
