Breathwork Helps Tame Stress, Benefits Your Mind and Body

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Controlled breathing helps lower your heart rate and blood pressure, improves your immune system, lowers stress hormone levels and balances carbon dioxide and oxygen blood levels
  • Most people are shallow breathers, with most of the effort coming from the upper chest, but deep, abdominal breathing activates the parasympathetic system, helping to calm and relax your mind and body
  • Carbon dioxide (CO2) helps utilize oxygen, so raising CO2 tolerance helps improve your health. A practical exercise developed by Dr. K. Buteyko can be done in minutes a day to improve your CO2 tolerance

How Blood Sugar Can Increase Your Body Temp to Disrupt Sleep

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Ketones provide cells with an immediate source of energy, allowing them to produce more ATP, which they may need to function when in a state of higher activity due to stressors
  • Ketones increase nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate hydrogen (NADPH), a reducing agent and nucleotide co-factor that improves your body’s ability to use antioxidants
  • Ketones also suppress inflammatory pathways present as a result of an infection; they elevate NAD+, which in turn upregulates SIRT genes, SIRT3 in particular, that directly control inflammation
  • Baking soda and Alka-Seltzer Gold help squelch excessive inflammation by immediately neutralizing peroxynitrites, which are among the most damaging free radicals there are, and work synergistically with ketones to preserve bone and prevent the loss of muscle
