Increasing oxygen in your cells is really important. Many diseases occur because of a lack of oxygen in the cells.
Today, we’re going to talk about the best ways to get more oxygen into your cells.
Here are a few of the best ways to increase oxygen in the cells:
• Sleep with the window open
• Put plants in your room
• Spend time outdoors
• Do aerobic exercise
• Take methylene blue
However, there is an interesting trigger that increases available oxygen in the cells: CO2. Carbon dioxide is not just a waste product—it tells the body to release oxygen.
You can use an oximeter to check your oxygen saturation, which should typically be between 95 and 99.
A few ways to increase CO2 in the body are to breathe through your nose and to slow your breath, balancing your inhalation and exhalation.
Increasing your CO2 can potentially help with certain concerns, including:
• Anxiety disorders
• Panic attacks
• Low endurance
• Respiratory problems
How to test your carbon dioxide tolerance:
1. Lay down on your back—inhale through your nose for three seconds and exhale through your nose for three seconds. Do this three times.
2. On the fourth time, expand your lungs, and breathe in as much as you can.
3. Slowly let the air out and start timing how long it takes until you run out of air.
4. Record the time it took from when you started letting the air out to when you ran out of air.
How to increase CO2 tolerance:
1. Breathe through your nose
2. Practice diaphragm breathing
3. Practice box breathing
4. Practice holding your breath (supervised)
