Proper exercise is essential to maintaining a healthy mind and body. You can use exercise to relieve stress, enhance mood, strengthen your immune system, increase energy levels, lose unwanted weight and become fit. There are many types of exercise that you can benefit from including cardio, strength training, endurance and stretching. Many popular exercises include Yoga, weight lifting, sports and dance. Even laughing has been proven to be a beneficial form of exercise that incorporates every muscle in the body.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that asthma afflicts 150 million people worldwide and claims 180,000 lives annually. In the USA, over 17 million Americans suffer from the disorder. Of these, at least 5 million are children, and half of those are undiagnosed.
Breathing Problems Caused By Sports, Exercise, or Prolonged, Intense Efforts. Some call it exercise induced hyperventilation, even COPD or Emphysema but that may only be part of it, or none of it.
Why do some pass a cardiac stress test and drop dead the following day or soon thereafter? Or even die during the test?
Competitive athletes and non competitive exercisers (this also applies to Fire and Police personnel as well as emergency paramedics, nurses, many physical therapists, and anyone that must intensely breath-heave, gasp, under-breathe or over exert repeatedly on the job or otherwise) routinely breathe too hard, too fast, and too soon. This is unbalanced hyper-inhalation. They often mouth-breathe, breath-heave and/or gasp to get the air they need to support their exertions. This kind of charged breathing can develop respiratory problems and related oxygen deficiency diseases including heart conditions, strokes, depressions, asthma, high blood pressure and many others.
Restriction of the breathing muscles, reduced breathing volume and ease, vaso constriction, such as presents in sports induced asthma can appear along with almost any malady. I believe this is often why many athletes develop sports induced breathing problems, and die prematurely...

She's on the maximum regimen recommended for asthma maintenance. That means three or four different medications a day - every day. Can we be ourselves using drugs every day and still be "healthy normal"? The drug industry would sure like that. I seriously doubt that most drugs and healthy normal are compatible.
For some, breathing development is of the utmost importance, right now. For others it is an indispensable aid to superior health, peak performance, and life extension.
Virtually every health condition and human activity is improved with Optimal Breathing.
Clinical studies prove that oxygen, wellness, and life-span are totally dependent on proper breathing. Lung volume is a primary marker for how long you will live.
