Video: Genetics, Diseases, and Low Body O2. For people with chronic (genetic) diseases, deep and fast breathing triggers their primary symptoms. As such, deep and fast breathing is used as a testing method by many doctors to see what kind of symptoms arise in their patients. Symptoms that can arise are angina spasms (heart attacks), seizures, asthma attacks, panic attacks, and many others. This kind of test is called a hyperventilation provocation test. Overbreathing, in this way, is used to expose genetic disadvantages in sick people. For more information about the, click here hyperventilation provocation test.
Based on hundreds of medical research studies (quoted on this website), we can make the following conclusions related to cell oxygenation and its leading role in understanding human genetics and development of numerous genetic disorders and diseases:
1. Virtually all multifactorial disorders, as well as many Mendelian and common genetic disorders, are based on cellular hypoxia (low oxygenation of tissues).
2. Heart disease, diabetes, cancer, asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, and many other diseases exist only in conditions of abnormal breathing (see Chronic Hyperventilation Syndrome – over 40 medical research studies with 100% prevalence of chronic hyperventilation).
3. Chronic overbreathing, or breathing more air than the medical norm, cannot increase hemoglobin oxygenation (which is about 98% during minuscule normal breathing) and only leads to CO2 losses.
5. People, who have normal breathing parameters or breathe even less (and slower) than the medical norm, do not develop chronic diseases or multifactorial and many common and Mendelian disorders. Even when they have a hereditary predisposition or “bad genes,” they do not suffer from any of the symptoms.
Hence, respiratory parameters and cell oxygenation, usually in a dose-dependent manner, control the expression of symptoms of multifactorial genetic disorders. This relationship is reflected in the Buteyko Table of Health Zones, which suggests 12 different health zones depending on personal breathing parameters.
Lifestyle and environmental factors, including exercise and diet, do influence dynamics of these genetic disorders through their effects on respiratory parameters and oxygenation of people. (For example, overeating and stress make breathing deeper and faster, while relaxing and physical exercise, when correctly done, slow down breathing at rest, due to adaptation to higher CO2, later.)
Note that chromosomal genetic disorders or chromosome diseases (e.g., Down syndrome or trisomy) have no relation to cell respiration and breathing process. However, if patients of chromosomal genetic disorders have abnormal breathing parameters and reduced body oxygenation, they will develop their multifactorial genetic disorders or “diseases of civilization” depending on the degree of their hyperventilation.
Single-gene genetic diseases (also called Mendelian or monogenic disorders) and mitochondrial conditions, since they are based on cell hypoxia, also only arise in conditions of chronic hyperventilation. This relates to, for example, cystic fibrosis and many other diseases.
