Re: Mondademhalen



In de nieuwe Wise Traditions (kwartaalblad van de WAPF) vind je de volgende boekrecensie:

You probably know that part of what you breathe out is carbon dioxide. What you might not know is that carbon dioxide is not just a waste product. Most of the carbon dioxide your body generates stays in your system and serves important functions. It regulates breathing and assists with oxygen transport. When you breathe too fast or too deeply, you dump carbon dioxide and lower internal CO2 to inadequate levels. By breathing too much you can end up with too little oxygen.

Klinkt als Buteyko, nietwaar? In de recensie wordt Buteyko echter niet vermeld. Over mondademhaling schrijft Tim Boyd het volgende:

The other point I find very interesting is how important it is to keep your mouth shut. There can be many good reasons to keep your mouth shut but one very good reason is to get more oxygen into your system. This makes a big difference and mouth-breathing just doesn’t work nearly as well. Graham illustrates this with an interesting story about the Tarahumara runners of northern Mexico. They live in a hot climate in rugged terrain and can run up to 120 km (about 75 miles) per day. They have been observed by scientists when running a regular marathon (only 42 km). At the end of the marathon, their breathing was calm and effortless and their blood pressure was lower than when they started the race. They also had little need for water. The key was they never opened their mouths.
