POWERbreathe - For Anyone Who Breathes

1st Jul 2004

Think of it as like exercise. After all, almost anyone can walk or jog, but
you need exercise to keep the body as smooth-running as possible. But while
many people think breathing is auto-controlled like your heartbeat, it
isn’t. Most of us need to learn how to breathe well.As a result, anyone
and everyone can benefit from POWERbreathe - from athletes to invalids and
everyone in between. Studies show that athletes gain increased stamina and
endurance, but for the unhealthy, like the 5.1 million asthmatics in
Britain (or if you have bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, emphysema, heart and
lung problems, neuromuscular conditions or spinal cord injuries), benefits
include easier breathing, greater comfort during exercise, and muscles that
feel stronger in days. To differing degrees, we all find that stairs get
easier to climb and hills are easier to walk. We feel less breathless from
walking the dog or running after the kids. Exercise becomes easier and more
comfortable. So does dancing. And sex. Best of all, unlike most asthma treatments, POWERbreathe is entirely drug-free.

HOW DO YOU USE IT? Just breathe through it twice a day for 30 breaths per
session. And that?s it. It takes about four minutes. As your performance
improves, you can adjust it to increase resistance, just like any other

HOW DOES IT WORK? It?s a simple gadget that exercises your lungs? breathing
muscles - or inspiratory muscles. (These include the diaphragm and
chest-expanding muscles, which work by drawing air into the lungs and
pushing it back out again as they move up and down.) POWERbreathe works on
the theory that, like any underexercised muscle, these respiration muscles
become weak without exercise. So the device has an adjustable spring
mechanism and pressure valve on the inside and a mouthpiece on the outside.
As you breathe through it, air is only released if you use enough pressure
to open the valve, so the respiratory muscles are forced to work harder.
It?s like weight-training for your lungs - which explains why it?s also
been called ?dumbbells for your diaphragm. This resistance work quickly
builds strength and endurance. Muscles feel stronger within days. In three
weeks you?ll feel less breathless. In four weeks, physical performance and
endurance improve.
