Breathing mechanics are
essentially the same for every normal human body but
many of us lose good breathing or never had it.
Breath is life. Many wish to improve on what they already have.
I am 73 years old. The Voldyne 5000

volume to be that of a 6 foot 6 inch 20 year old male. At
age 13 I was 6 foot 2 inches tall. I am still that tall.

About life in general.
Breathing is not only a marker for health and longevity, it is a major
for personal and spiritual growth and our ability to create and adapt to
life's challenges and opportunities as we progress at our own speed.
For some, breathing
development is of the utmost importance, right now.
others, better breathing is an indispensable aid to
everything related to life and living.
Facts you should know.
- Science has proven that
cancer is anaerobic - it does not survive in high
levels of oxygen.
- Shortness of breath and
heart disease are directly linked - the heart goes
into spasm when it is deprived of
Studies have shown that
there is a high
Most emotional issues,
including breathing related anxiety and
depression, result from
nervous system being out of balance. Breathing drives
the nervous system.
- Optimal Breathing helps
to promote weight loss.
Oxygen burns fat and calories.
- Breathing well is the
sleeping well and waking up
- Breathing provides 99%
energy. Without energy,

Clinical studies prove that the body's
oxygen supply, wellness, and life-span are totally dependent
on proper breathing.
2. Lung volume is a primary marker for
how long you will live.
Breathing tests are critical to
3. Breathing supplies over 99% of your entire oxygen and
energy supply. Poor breathing causes or worsens chronic
maladies such as asthma, allergies, anxiety, fatigue,
depression, headaches, heart conditions, high blood
pressure, sleep loss, obesity, harmful stress, poor mental
clarity plus hundreds of other lesser known but equally
harmful conditions. ALL diseases are caused or worsened by
4. The average person reaches peak respiratory function and
lung capacity in their mid 20's. Then they begin to lose
respiratory capacity: between 10% and 27% for every decade
of life! So, unless you are doing something to maintain or
improve your breathing capacity, it will decline, and with
it, your general health, your life expectancy, and for that
matter, your spirit as well.
5. Breathing fundamentals are critical.
Just because one particular breathing exercise or
development technique feels good does not mean it is the
best choice. Many feel good at the outset of a certain
exercise but that is largely because so many breathe so
poorly that any progress feels significant, and it may well
be. But each technique or exercise must be based in solid
breathing fundamentals otherwise they can work against each
other and cause future breathing development problems. Like
a rocket ship even slightly off course, as the days and
weeks pass, you will travel further and further away from
your goal of a long, healthy, vibrant life. Knowing the
fundamentals helps you stay on course. Here is an example of
being way off course -

From Justin S: I am
inspired by new ideas and new concepts - I believe that breathing right
is one of the most important things in staying healthy - your web site is
filled with important and logical information...... it makes perfect
sense on what your saying about breathing properly-a lot of people
(including myself) are starting to look for answers in a non traditional
way. I always believe that the best way is the simplest, straightforward
approach, the way that makes the most sense - just breathing right.
