Clear thinking, concentration, and focus require a great deal of oxygen to the brain. In fact, the brain is known to consume 20% of the oxygen available in the body. If you are one of the 80% who are functioning at 30% of breathing capacity, your brain is not functioning fully either.
In addition, when you begin to get anxious about performing on tests and other mentally demanding activities, it can trigger the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight response) and all resources are conserved for survival. The brain is further robbed of oxygen and this begins a downward spiral, which further impedes performance and confidence.
When the brain is deprived of oxygen, numerous domino-effects of deficiencies will follow. Oxygen is needed to metabolize glucose. Glucose is converted into energy for all living cells. Since 90% of the brain's energy is used to send electrochemical impulses and maintain the neuron's ability to send these impulses, a deprivation of oxygen may produce profound thinking, movement, and emotional impairments.
There are many medications available to treat the symptoms of oxygen deprivation. And at times they may be necessary when conditions have deteriorated drastically. But all drugs have side-effects and they don't resolve the underlying problem. In fact, most doctors are not even aware that there are effective natural ways to improve oxygenation via breathing development.
The good news is you don't need a doctor's prescription to take responsibility for your own breathing! Expand your breathing capacity before it causes a severe problem. If you are already being medicated for problems diagnosed as anxiety, depression, panic disorder, hyperventilation, ADD, ADHD, social anxiety, TBI or others, take our Self-Test to assess your breathing.
Even if you just want to learn faster, be more alert, get better scores on tests, speak in front of groups without sweating bullets, or anything that requires a fully functioning brain, optimal breathing is necessary to reach your highest potential.
