Re: Panic, hyperventilation and perpetuation of anxiety. (last post on this topic...maybe)

I am well aware that nutritional imbalances can lead to anxiety.   But you need more than one tool in the toolbox.  The method that you use is not the only valid method.  

This study shows how hyperventilation treatment alone reduces panic attacks.  There are many more on Pubmed.
Feedback of end-tidal pCO2 as a therapeutic approach for panic disorder.

If you felt the need to show up on the thread and  torpedo my post least read the link

There is a cycle of stress,  hyperventilation and anxiety..  

Yes...stress (nutritional or otherwise) causes hyperventilation.
But it is like a snowball effect where hyperventilation further increases anxiety and panic attacks.

Those with hyperventilation syndrome have very unsteady breathing and alternate between hyperventilation and then over correct to apnea...called "post hyperventilation apnea", where they stop breathing completely for extended periods, followed by a sudden gasp and another round of hyperventilation.
Post Hyperventilation Apnea in Conscious Humans

When they are in hyperventilation mode,  reduced cerebral blood flow to the prefrontal cortex results in increased anxiety.   CO2 is a vasodilator.  And low CO2 levels from hyperventilation results in constricted blood vessels, which is why it reduces cerebral blood flow, creating anxiety.

When they over-correct to apnea (ie not breathing at all), this increases CO2 levels quickly and leads to a false suffocation alarm, which leads to an sudden increase in Catecholamine stress hormones.   

If you are going to drop by and torpedo someones post , at least understand the subject matter.

Hyperventilation is both a result of and a cause of stress, anxiety and panic.   

Maybe you are 100% motivated by helping people.  But when most of your posts contain links to your site, your motivation is up for questioning.  

As soon as you have something to gain from the post, the reason WHY you posted is questionable.

Can you honestly say that the increased traffic you get from Curezone to your site is not one of the reasons you have posted so many links.
