If you're looking for the fastest way to alkalise your pH in your body, there is nothing faster than deep breathing exercises. Acidic environment in your body increases inflammation & risk of bacterial growth, & to stay healthy you have to control the alkalinity(pH) levels of your body. Learn how breathing can bring your body to an alkaline pH.
How Can I Alkalise my body?
The two major determinants of acidity in the body are what you eat & stress. While eating more alkaline foods will help you maintain weight gain & prevent chronic inflammatory conditions, it's not an actual cure due to stress or lifestyle habits that creates or causes acidity. In Singapore, buying foods that will help you be more alkaline may cost you a fortune just having a healthy diet, & may not be sustainable as we don't have enough fresh produce, but good news for us is that breathing is free & will change your blood pH levels instantly by improving the ratio of carbon dioxide to oxygen which changes on a cellular level. A simple way to breathe efficiently is to ensure that you are not only chest breathing but breathing into the belly.
While fitness tips, exercise, pure water & foods(diet) helps lower the acid levels in the blood, there is nothing faster & more efficient to changing your ph in your body than breathing exercises.
What does acidity do to the body?
If you are not in the alkaline levels, there are some ways for you to promote alkalinity by foods that lower in the acidity profile. Fish oil has a range of being around 7.5-8.0 pH level once digested, helps with stabilising the blood sugar levels when eatings foods that is high in GI(glucose index), which may lead to a sugar crash & harder to keep a healthy weight! While food/ diet plays a role in our acid/ acidic levels, it takes time for the body to respond but not as efficient & simple as breathing. Acidity promotes growth of bacteria which can lead to some serious chronic health conditions in the long run.
Alkaline Foods VS Acidic Foods
While what we eat & drink can greatly affect the internal pH of our body, it's not the only things that causes higher acidity which can lead to frequent inflammation, pain, poor digestive & even a compromised immune system. Maintaining a healthy pH means controlling acid in our body. A more acidic environment mean having higher stress hormones circulating your body with increased chronic stress which is not a sign of health. Being acidic in the body accelerates a host of bacteria that can flourish & would normally be associated with diseased body.
Breathing Exercises Benefits
When we breathe, we take up oxygen & release toxins into the brain. Our blood is normally already fully saturated with oxygen (around 98.9 in most cases), & deep breathing exercises increases the saturation & delivery of oxygen to the cells. When you do breathing exercises to manipulate your health, the benefits to practising certain breathing technique are not just physical, but positively influence the mental(nervous system) & spiritual parts of us as well which includes:
Breathing & How It Alkalises Your Blood pH
Shallow breathing increases the chance of gut bacteria & this is due to mostly mouth breathing. Breathing through the mouth & hyperventilating increases you per minute ventilation, & since the mouth doesn't do what the nose does, one of the most important thing such as thermo regulation, & filtration, bacteria/ pathogens goes straight into your lungs & visceral organs. High CO2 level causes a decreased pH of the blood bringing acidity both acute & gets worse as it develops into the chronic state. Being in acidic state in the long run has been linked to health conditions which have been hypothesised by body's ph balance & mouth breathing. Regular breathing exercise has multiple benefits like improving digestion, blood circulation, better health, relieving stress & helping to clean our bodies of toxins.
Carbon Dioxide & Deep Breathing
Breathing exercises focus on deep rhythmic inhalation and exhalation exercises. Afterwards there's a time when one carries one air and holds his sanity for a number of days. It's possible to release your energy more effectively while performing the breathing exercises. Buteyko, Oxygen Advantage, & Wim Hof method breathing is also linked to the reducing of symptoms of disease including asthma, multiple sclerosis vasculitis. Wim Hof method adds in cold therapy training your while the rest is without any cold training. Combining the three factors can provide you to gain greater strength & good health, as the cold has been shown to treat /manage rheumatoid arthritis & multiple sclerosis by boosting the immune system & reducing the inflammatory response. When breathing deeply is compared to shallow breath, it helps you to achieve an alkaline body with just a few deep breaths due to an increased oxygen intake.
Generally, shallow breaths increases more carbon dioxide, & promotes a more acidic environment in your body which may lead to a range of health condition.
What Techniques Do You Use?
Our teachers are well versed to teach you breathing techniques that you need to change your body & shift it in to an alkaline state, lower blood acidity, improve overall health. The techniques are not limited to Wim Hof method, nor any dogmatic approach of breathing techniques. What we do is to ensure that you learn how to allow your lungs to open up to feel free when that breath is taken & given throughout each inhale & exhale!
