Breathing is behaviour, a unique behaviour that influences all the systems in our body and regulates body chemistry, pH.

DID YOU KNOW?

Good breathing means proper allocation of carbon dioxide (CO2).
Did you know that CO2 is precious and essential to your health and performance? Did you know that you exhale only about 15% of the CO2 entering the lungs (at rest)? Did you know that if you exhale too much CO2 you may be in creating serious problems for yourself?

Proper allocation of CO2 is about regulating acid-base physiology.
CO2 regulates the pH level of extracellular body fluids, like blood and cerebrospinal fluid; electrolyte balance, like sodium and potassium; blood flow, like to the brain and to the heart; kidney physiology, like bicarbonate regeneration; and delivery of oxygen and nitric oxide (for vasodilation) by hemoglobin. CO2 deficiency is known as hypocapnia.

CO2 deficit can result in profound physical and mental changes.
Disturbing pH and electrolyte balance, by exhaling too much CO2, may have immediate and long-term effects that trigger, exacerbate, perpetuate, and/or cause a wide variety of emotional (anxiety, anger), cognitive (attention, learning), behavioral (public speaking, test taking), and physical (pain, asthma) changes that may seriously impact your health and performance.

Learned overbreathing behavior leads to CO2 deficiency, hypocapnia.
Breathing is a behavior subject to the same principles of learning as any other behavior, including the role of motivation, emotion, attention, perception, and memory. Tens of millions overbreathe, behavior that accounts for symptoms and deficits unexplained or falsely attributed to other factors.

Restore healthy CO2 allocation through CapnoLearning

Breathing is a behaviour subject to the same principles of learning as any other behaviour, including the role of motivation, emotion, attention, perception, and memory. Behavioural analysis and behaviour modification are the foundation of learning good breathing. Behavioural analysis is about our partnership in your exploration of how you learned to breathe the way that yo­u do, and in your discovery of how the effects of your unconscious habits may be influencing your health and performance.  Behaviour modification is about our partnership in your efforts to make changes in your breathing behaviour consistent with your objectives to improve health and performance. People can Restore good breathing behavior with the CapnoTrainer, a break-through technology for use in the field, while also receiving assistance from a breath practioner.
