Experts’ quotes on breathing

“All chronic pain, suffering, and diseases are caused by a lack of oxygen at the cell level.”


Dr. Arthur C. Guyton MD, author of ‘Textbook of Medical Physiology’

“Breathing is the key that unlocks the whole catalogue of advanced biological function and development. Is it any wonder that it is so central to every aspect of health? Breathing is the first place, not the last one should look when fatigue, disease, or other evidence of disordered energy presents itself. Breathing is truly the body’s most basic communication system.”


Dr. Sheldon Saul Hendler MD, PhD, Medical Researcher Cell Oxygenation, Author ‘The Oxygen Breakthrough’

“Improper breathing is a common cause of ill health.”


Professor Andrew Weil – Director of the Centre for Integrative Medicine, College of Medicine, University of Arizona

“In all serious disease states we find a concomitant low oxygen state … Low oxygen in the body tissues is a sure indicator for disease. Hypoxia, or lack of oxygen in the tissues, is the fundamental cause for all degenerative disease. Oxygen is the source of life to all cells.”


Dr. Stephen Levine, Renowned Molecular Biologist and Geneticist

“Insufficient oxygen means insufficient biological energy that can result in anything from mild fatigue to life-threatening disease. The link between insufficient oxygen and disease has now been firmly established.”


Dr. W. Spencer Way, from the Journal of the American Association of Physicians

“The relationship between breathing and blood pressure has been known and understood for a long time. It boils down to this: Elevated blood pressure accompanies those bodily states where rapid shallow breathing prevails. By altering breathing to a slow diaphragmatic mode, blood pressure decreases.”


Dr. Robert Fried PhD, author of ‘The Psychology and Physiology of Breathing’

“The major miracles of yogis are in the reduction of respiration and accumulation of carbon dioxide. For thousands of years the yogis were looking for “prana”, which is somewhere in food, air, etc. It turned out that carbon dioxide is prana. Here is the main source of life – carbon dioxide. If you accumulate it, you become a “superhuman”; if you lose it, you suffer.”


Professor K. P. Buteyko

“Lack of oxygen clearly plays a major role in causing cells to become cancerous.”


Dr. Harry Goldblatt, former professor of Experimental Pathology, Western Reserve University.

“If I had to limit my advice on healthy living to just one tip, it would be simply to learn how to breathe correctly.”


Professor Andrew Weil – Director of the Centre for Integrative Medicine, College of Medicine, University of Arizona

“Coronary heart disease is due to a lack of oxygen received by the heart.”


Dr. Dean Ornish, Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of California

“Oxygen plays a pivotal role in the proper functioning of the immune system. We can look at oxygen deficiency as the single greatest cause of all diseases.”


Dr. Stephen Levine, Molecular biologist and geneticist and Dr. Paris M. Kidd, author of ‘Antioxidant Adaptation’

“Breathing correctly is the key to better fitness, muscle strength, stamina, and athletic endurance.”


Dr. Michael Yessis, President Sports Training Institute, Fitness Writer – Muscle and Fitness Magazine

“A lack of oxygen (hypoxia) is the prime cause of 1.5 million heart attacks each year.”


Dr. Richard Lippman, nominee for the Noble Prize in Medicine in 1996.
