The Buteyko body oxygen test - Find out how you can easily measure your body oxygen content using a stress-free breath holding time test. This is the main test of the Buteyko breathing technique, while the video provides a precise and simple description of this breath holding test.
It is also called the Buteyko CP or Control Pause. The Buteyko test is done after usual expiration and only until the first signs of stress or discomfort. Learn about breath holding time test results in healthy and sick people based on tens of western studies and experience of Soviet and Russian medical doctors practicing the Buteyko breathing method. These Buteyko doctors tested thousands of people in the USSR and Russia and this Buteyko test became the practical foundation of the Buteyko Table of Health Zones.
Doctor Buteyko and his medical colleagues (over 180 doctors) tested more than 100,000 patients and found that the following relationships are generally true for the Buteyko body oxygen test: 1-10 s - critically and terminally ill patients, usually hospitalized 10-20 s - most sick patients with numerous complaints and, often, on daily medical drugs 20-40 s - most normal people and people with poor health, but often without serious organic problems. 40-60 s - good health (no chronic diseases). Over 60 s - ideal health, with short sleep, very high energy levels, and amazing clarity of mind.
