(Overbreathing) and 40% reduction of Oxygen
Red = most Oxygen O2,
Dark blue = least Oxygen O2

Effects of Overbreathing on Cerebral Oxygen O2: Vasoconstrictive effects
Reduction of Oxygen O2 Availability by 40% (Red = most Oxygen O2, dark blue = least Oxygen O2)
In this image, oxygen availability in the brain is reduced by 40% as a result of about a minute of overbreathing (hyperventilation). Not only is oxygen availability reduced, but glucose critical to brain functioning is also markedly reduced as a result of cerebral vasoconstriction.


Surveys suggest that 10 to 25 percent of the US
population suffers from chronic overbreathing

And that up to 60 percent of all ambulance calls in major US cities may be a direct result of the symptoms
triggered by overbreathing.

For every person who shows up in emergency incidents,
how many more show up in physician’s offices with unexplained symptoms?

For every person who goes to see a physician, how
many more simply go to work?

And for everyone who reports a “medical symptom”
how many more suffer with performance deficits?
