Many people know that metastasized breast cancers can be often deadly. Up to 20-25% of women expire during following 5 years as a consequence of spread of cancerous cells to additional parts of the human body. All over the world hundreds of teams of doctors looks into solutions to improve the treatments as well as lower mortality. While it is currently proven that low cell oxygenation is the main factor that causes spread of tumors, there are no official methods to drive oxygen into cells. Currently there are actually no effective therapies that can significantly enhance the outcomes. Meanwhile this Ukrainian medical study was a stunning success in development of unique approaches for self-oxygenation therapy for cancer malignancy.

The results were actually submitted in Ukrainian Oncology Periodical some years before in Russian, and for that reason, it was actually not instantly noticed in the Western world. However, not too long ago, I translated the results of this shocking research from Russian to English and shared the write-up on my web site (

This breast cancer medical testing was organized by Dr. Sergey Paschenko, MD, a pupil of Doctor Konstantin Buteyko who was the creator of the Buteyko breathing style). Be aware of that it is actually recognized that individuals with cancer possess fast and heavy breathing at rest as a result of hyperventilation always present in cancer. As well, based on laws of physiology, chronic hyperventilation lowers oxygen concentrations in body cells. Better oxygen pressure in body organs was the key factor in this cancer treatment and here is a great YouTube Video that explains how lifestyle factors (like sleep, exercise, mouth breathing, posture, and so forth) influence cancer: cancer treatment.

It ought to be actually emphasized from the start, that, for this breast cancer treatment, respiratory exercises as well as additional lifetyle changes were actually applied in addition to basic medical treatment. For that reason, all sufferers used standard medical treatments. One hundred twenty sufferers with breast cancer (Global class T1-2N1M0) participated in this subject. All patients had a standard anti-cancer therapy that included medical eradication of out-growths and chemotherapy. Nonetheless, in enhancement to this typical treatment, the respiratory retraining group of 67 sufferers applied respiration exercises. Their parameters were contrasted by having the control collection (53 sufferers who did not do any breathwork).

Three-year mortality for the breathing normalization set of women was 4.5 %, while for the control group 24.5 %. Thus, breathing exercises lowered 3-year fatality by more than 5 times. All patients who trained hard and stabilized their breathing survived. This is actually a spectacular breakthrough for this oxygenation therapy of cancers of the breast.

While Dr Paschenko was educated as a Buteyko breathing physician in the 1980's, in this subject, he applied a modified breath retraining technique based on the same idea as the Buteyko system: breathing normalization or lessened breathing combined with lifestyle changes.

Diminished breathing sessions are actually grounded on breathing slightly less than generally, while having correct posture as well as an unfilled stomach. The goal of this exercise is to boost oxygen content in cells. In lieu of having large inhalations, the sufferers are actually recommended to take reduced inhalations using the diaphragm just and to continually sustain a light, however comfortable desire to breathe more often (or air hunger) paired by having relaxation of the diaphragm for exhalations. All body parts as well as muscular tissues of the human body really should even be relaxed during this breathing exercise. In this medical testing, the overall duration of respiratory exercises ranged from 60 minutes up to 2.5-4 hrs per day for 3 years. The time of one respiration treatment varied from 20 up to 30 min.

One astonishing certainty of this incredibly effective medical trial is that the respiration instructor as well as his students were actually persevering by having respiratory retraining for at least 3 years, suggesting their courage and self-discipline. The respiration retraining group raised their exhaled CO2 content by almost 2 times. For that reason, they raise their body oxygen quantity about 2 times due to slower and lighter breathing at rest and dramatically enhanced their quality of life aspects that included less complaints about shortness of breath, better sleep, much more stamina and elimination of edema.

For this research, Doctor Paschenko assessed their CO2 levels in the exhaled air flow as a way of measuring chronic over-breathing. After 3 years of respiratory retraining, the patients that practiced respiratory exercises breathed less when compared to the standard medical norm as well as closer to the Buteyko' respiration norm or 4 liter per minute for minute ventilation, 8 breaths for every minute for breathing frequency, as well as 50-60 s for the body oxygen levels.

When the health condition of some patients substantially deteriorated (due to metastasis), their exhaled CO2 subject matter dumped about 2 times from their preliminary values due to rigorous hyperventilation syndrome with respiratory alkalosis and critically low blood pH. Nonetheless, Russian as well as Ukrainian Buteyko specialists are convinced that the legitimate situation in connection to advancing cancer is contrary. They state that deep and fast breathing creates metastasis and advancement of cancers due to reduced O2 in cells. And this trial possibly proves their point.
