Hyperventilation may come in many forms, with many of the diseases we face nowadays are related to our breathing. As humans, we now breathe faster and take bigger breaths than we used to. Called Chronic Hidden Hyperventilation, this over breathing results in the development of health conditions such as asthma and hay fever, insomnia, snoring and sleep apnoea, chronic fatigue, anxiety and stress.
Chronic Hyperventilation lowers your carbon dioxide levels in the blood. Lower CO2 levels results in smooth muscle contraction causing narrowing of blood vessels and of airways. This in turn causes poor circulation and breathing difficulties. Low CO2 levels also causes inefficient oxygen delivery to your tissues. This increases your chances of developing health conditions such as asthma and hay fever, chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety and stress, snoring and sleep apnoea.
