Difference between hyper+ventilation hyper+respiration

Featured

Does exercise induce hyper-ventilation or hyper-respiration? And what does it matter to those of us who exercise at the intensity necessary to stay in top physical condition?TestPic1forWomenFitnessNoBorder

Until a few years back hyper-ventilation was standard terminology for the normal compensatory mechanism that accelerates breathing during exercise when ventilation spontaneously gets deeper and faster. Then whoever influences medical usage got lazy. They needed a word to describe what happens at another point during exercise which had more clinical significance: the point when muscle fatigue, overheating, and build up of metabolites exceeds compensation. Of course it’s important to distinguish this moment because if  the increasing demands of metabolism can’t be compensated, stroke volume reaches a plateau and often decreases resulting in a fall in blood pressure. Dehydration occurs. Cutaneous vasoconstriction also decreases rate of heat loss and high temperatures result in acute acidosis. “Most people think hyperventilation refers to emotional stress only,” they must have thought, “no one will notice if we start using it to denote the point when the compensatory mechanisms fail instead of the point at which they kick in during exercise.”

Normally ventilatory compensation is caused by rising hydrogen and decreasing carbonic acid in the blood. Although CO2 and CO3 concentrations levels are considered relatively stable during steady state exercise, you still end up with an oxygen debt that must be compensated for before the deficit can be balanced by converting lactate into glucose and blood pH re-established at 7.4.

The problem is when blood pH drops during exercise and  H+ concentrations are high, potassium moves from cells into the extracellular fluid depressing polarity and slowing electrical response in organs, glands and deep tissues. Add high temperatures and increasingly slower excretion of excess H+ by the kidneys as generalized metabolic acidosis ensues, and ventilatory rate dependent on cardiac output for stimulation of the carotid bodies eventually slows down along with decreasing stroke volume and stroke volume and falling blood pressure. When the compensatory mechanisms fail and heart rate slows, the huffing and puffing necessary to rectify acidosis is shut off. So hyper+ventilation really isn’t the best word here at all, is it?

In the meantime another another word was needed to describe the normal acceleration of breathing at the RCP during exercise. The Greek root of hyper-pnoea or hyper-pnea refers to pulmonary respiration or breathing, so that seemed to suffice. However a couple of things were overlooked. What wasn’t taken into consideration is that respiration is not the same as ventilation, but whoever was responsible for the switch in terminology  didn’t think it was important enough to differentiate between the two since their interests had been served.

Steady state exercise would need to increase not decrease respiratory efficiency in order to use hyper-pnea, meaningfully wouldn’t it? But since it always triggers hyper-ventilation when metabolism becomes anaerobic during exercise, this  brings us to the third element regarding usage that’s virtually overlooked. The fact that it’s actually possible to engineer true hyper-plea, true hyper-respiration during exercise by oxygenating all the tissues of the body equally even as heart rate peaks. However it takes a specifically designed sequence of exercises with a breathing movement pattern that can maintain resting state homeostatic balance, a slightly alkaline pH,  at all degrees of performance intensity and duration. As long as the relative anion/cation ratio remains the same the total number of ions can go up or down as metabolism speeds up during exercise and homeostatic acid-base pH is still maintained, aerobically.

Body’Fit pHx™ compensates for oxygen deprivation in deep organs by opening up circulation in deep vessels, so blood volume can’t be shunted over to the muscles like it usually is, thereby maintaining the anion/ cation balance required for acid base equilibrium. In other words no huffing and puffing of heavier breathing is ever triggered at any intensity. This is true hyper-pnea, because the breathing design sustains 100% aerobic cardio,  automatic compensatory hyper-ventilation is completely unnecessary. Body’Fit design works with physiological mechanisms to define the gold standard that makes sense of both hyper-ventilation and hyper-respiration.

How breathing engages the core

Featured

vitruvian-man-largeTransverse diaphragms connected with the sacral, lumbar, thoracic, and cervical spine need to move freely if electrolytes are to flow uninterrupted up thru the organ systems. Since the diaphragm between the chest and abdomen moves the most, gaining control over ventilatory depth and breadth is the most efficient way to engage the deepest layers of muscle connected to the spine. Whether it’s Yoga, Pilates, or martial arts, all exercise disciplines have their own way of achieving  this, each slightly different depending on their priority. For example in Pilates postural correction thru strengthening and conditioning the core muscles requires a specific explanation of the breathing technique, while in the pHx™ warmup cool down routine the purpose is oxygenating deep organs and muscles equally in the sequence that balances body pH. If you haven’t heard about pHx, it’s performance  pre and post sports training, or any stressful activity, assists the kidneys in normalizing blood pH necessary for integrating physiological processes. The Body”Fit pHx routine is essentially a breathing exercise that utilizes the most economical complete expression of the musculo-skeletal system in a single 7-14 minute session that raises V02max specifically in each muscle group to elicit an entirely revolutionary physiological response aimed at accelerating mind body focus. That is, it prevents acidification of the blood during physical activity by distributing electrolytes evenly to all cells. Therefore pHx requires a more efficient breathing technique.

Transverse abdominis, the muscle that circumvents the abdomen and pops up in your lower belly whenever you cough, is what keeps the  low back in the correct neutral position to stabilize rotation of the torso around the pelvis. It’s most easily activated when we focus in on a very specific point in the belly, which we call the CorePoint™ in pHx. The breathing technique used in pHx to increase movement of the five transverse diaphragms utilizes this primary visualization. The CorePoint is not an anatomical organ like the kidneys, it’s our physical centre of balance located in the middle of the lower abdomen. This is where most of the blood in the body is stored during rest and sleep..

The pelvic diaphragm is felt in the pit of the lower belly just above the pubic bone. If you think of the pelvic diaphragm as the bottom of a bowl, the CorePoint is suspended above it about three fingerwidths below the navel. By visualizing the CorePoint as a magnet that attracts the abdominal diaphragm downwards and the pelvic diaphragm upwards in the vacuum created by expansion of the pulmonary cavity during inspiration, we can sense our whole body at once, coordinating movement and breathing more effectively.

CorePoint breathing also helps improves core conditioning crucial to muscle strength. When we imagine drawing air directly into this point, as opposed to trying to figure out which muscles to activate the core (squeezing in the stomach like corset or a tight belt around your torso, etc) the bottom ribs expand more fully. So pHx isn’t the belly breathing of yoga. The difference is that by end inspiration when air has filled the top lung segment, this depth and breadth of expansion produces pressure changes between the chest and abdomen that naturally pulls up on the deep pelvic core  including the pelvic floor (since all the muscles are connected). It takes Pilates breathing to the next level by becoming aware of all the muscles of the body at the same time, the intelligence of the body engages breathing depth and breath with an efficiency that cannot be duplicated by the mind.

Try it, focus in on the CorePoint, inhale deeply letting the belly expand naturally (don’t worry this isn’t what gives you a pot belly) and notice how contraction peaks first in the abdominal diaphragm, followed by diaphragms related to the chest, neck and head, until finally at the top of the inhale, the pelvic diaphragm is awakened and the pelvic core contracts. When exhaling maintain the CorePoint releases the diaphragm upwards as you press air out of the lungs thru the mouth in the reverse order from top to bottom. This produces quite a different dynamic from Pilates or yoga, without holding in the stomach, squeezing the sphincters to pull up the pelvic floor, contracting the gluts or anything like that. In fact during pHx you shouldn’t attempt to engage the core by using the more superficial muscles as it can restrict breathing.

The ventilatory efficiency that triggers a flash of electrolytes thru all the tissues during pHx depends on the unique breathing pattern for each progressive exercise, however how freely and quickly the chest moves is primarily determined by consistency of visualization. Think of your upper and lower abdomen as an accordion pressing towards the CorePoint on the inhale and opening inward on the exhale, with your lungs doing the pumping action. As you fill your lungs to the top the pressures in the chest and abdomen become such that you can actually feel the CorePoint pulling up all the muscles of the lower abdomen (including the Kegel muscles).

In this way the pelvic transverse diaphragm also follows the breath and is ready to fully contract on the exhale as the CorePoint magnet releases the tissues, and contraction of the pelvic core kicks in fully to stabilize the spine. Believe it or not, but the fact remains mental focus on the precise CorePoint of physical equilibrium, supports the dynamic synergy where all muscles are activated inside following the breath. Unless we pinpoint the CorePoint and fill the lungs from bottom to top and empty in the reverse order, we don’t get the same intensification in the pelvic core during inspiration and we won’t get the same depth of contraction with expiration. No other visualization will do it quite like this.

You can then add the correct posture by dropping shoulders out, back, and down towards the CorePoint, relaxing your feet, unlocking the knees to let your weight sink, tilting the pelvis for a neutral spine, and rucking the hips till you feel a slight curl at the level of the diaphragm in the lower belly and you have an effective two-way stretch from the CorePoint thru the top of your head that activates multifidus and the transverse abdominals, et Voila you’ve engaged your core effortlessly. What it comes down to breathing specific to what we’re trying to achieve with an exercise workout gives better results.

When the clocks change but the time doesn’t…

Featured

…biorhythms go haywire, literally. Why the time change thing then when it’s such a drag? There’s no logical reason, but then it affects our thinking. It’s a perfect example of when our collective mental constructs do not match reality; the bi-annual increase in the bi-polar mind body split is another manipulation that can adversely affect our lives unless we take meaningful action.. .for example see rt.com/news/199464-winter-time-russia-clocks. Going back and forth, back and forth, for no viable reason is in itself dysfunctional, in a true laissez-faire economy artificial inefficient practices would be done away with in no time literally.

So what time is it really? Changing the clocks was originally instituted as a crisis response to save electricity for war production during winter. And sad to say it’s been allowed to continue to evoke the scarcity cog mentality by disorientating our perception of what the times really are.. Even to the point that some weird rhetoric’s being proliferated that because ‘circadian’ and ‘biorhythm’ are being used interchangeably these semantics somehow make the natural rhythms of a living organism invalid. No one’s that much of a fool, we know we can’t change the fact of movement through space. We’re living in a fantasy if we think we can alter the laws of physics, the ticking clock waits for no one. What we can do is change our response to that reality to improve alignment with the universal principles which determine quality of life.

It’s time to accept time for what it is, not what we think it is, an objective measurement not a willy nilly manipulation. Shifting clocks can disrupt sleep and reduce productivity, the effects can be severe and last for weeks. A 2008 Swedish study found that heart attacks are more common during the first three weekdays following the start of Daylight Saving Time. More automobile accidents reportedly occur on the first Monday following the start of Daylight Saving Time than at any other time of the year. It seems that our body can tolerate the stress of getting up earlier in the fall better, but it can’t deal with an arbitrary clock change that also involves a mental shift of perception.

Compromised mind/ body integrity in the long term is believed to have significant adverse health consequences on our organs, particularly in the development or exacerbation of cardiovascular disease. According to the American Journal of Physiology in an article on Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology, “Circadian rhythm disorganization produces profound cardiovascular and renal disease…” Plus, the suppression of melatonin production associated with the disruption of the circadian rhythm may increase the risk of developing cancer.

So how can we take back IQ EQ PQ integrity and stop the profanity that leads to degradation of our body temple? As Dr. Herzog mentioned protein cells play a key role in time-keeping, which of course requires pH fitness. Restoring acid base equilibrium returns normal function to protein cells otherwise they can become deformed under acidic conditions, which can happen under any kind of emotional, mental or physical stress. I’ve also found that keeping at least one clock in the house set to the right time all year around helps protect from internal contradiction. And of course I do pHx daily to maximize electrolyte flow throughout the body interconnecting all organ systems necessary to balance body pH (without which complete mind body integrity isn’t possible). Body’Fit pHx is a great way to get rid of jet lag and restore biorhythms very quickly.
