About this talk

Results from a recent study conducted at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York on patients with Long-COVID found that <em>all</em> had low levels of CO2. After doing specific breathwork exercises, the patients’ symptoms began to abate. Join Patrick McKeown, Clinical Director of Buteyko Clinic International, for an in-depth exploration of these findings and a practical demonstration of breathing exercises that may be beneficial for those with Long-COVID. Discover how breathing practices can help to help normalize carbon dioxide levels and stimulate the vagus nerve, dilate airways, improve blood circulation and oxygen delivery.
