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’.
