Breathing and alkalinity

Respiratory alkalosis is low levels of carbon dioxide in the blood due to breathing excessively.


  • High PCO2 is the same as Respiratory Acidosis
  • Low PCO2 is the same as Respiratory Alkalosis

The quickest and most effective way to increase the alkalinity of your blood is to practice relaxed and effortless natural breathing at around 6 breaths per minute, as this balances O2/CO2. Low CO2 induces respiratory alkalosis, which causes blood acidosis. This is a much quicker effect than eating an ‘alkalising diet’.

“I have had a brilliant Christmas and (usually for me) SAD season, whatever you did, I felt upbeat, fought off flu’s, and have had the best Christmas ever, with positive vibes and all good things, and I think I have to thank you, for what you did. Will see you late January for a booster!”

Vena Ramphal, London

I really liked how we started with the work on nutrition and my relationship with food.  This physical work acted as a safety net for the energetic emotional shifts that the breath and body work brought on. They were quite full on!

Alex Brown, London

“The best way I can describe what Stefan does is to say that there are times when I have gone to see him feeling like I'm "broken" due to stress, over work, the death of my brother and other life experiences that have been hard to deal with. And in a simple sentence I leave feeling "fixed". Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative“
