Ep. 59: How to Increase Carbon Dioxide and Minimize Lactate (Oxygenation, Swelling, and pH Balance Part 4)

Listen to the podcast on Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Stitcher| Spotify

In this episode we discuss:

  • The major problem with Wim Hoff breathing and an alternative that supports carbon dioxide production
  • Why using thyroid, caffeine, and other metabolic stimulants can increase or decrease carbon dioxide production depending on the context
  • Why burning carbs leads to more than a 50% increase in carbon dioxide production relative to fat-burning
  • How PUFA consumption decreases carbon dioxide production
  • The best carbohydrate sources to oppose stress and support carbon dioxide production

4:20 – energy and the structuring of water as the drivers of health and life and opposition of aging

19:05 – the role of excess lactate and a lack of CO2 in neuropathy and nerve damage in diabetes, glaucoma, and epilepsy

20:18 – how increasing mitochondrial respiration increases carbon dioxide and the importance of using carbohydrates as a fuel instead of fat when it comes to carbon dioxide production

23:16 – how PUFA consumption decreases carbon dioxide production

27:43 – how thyroid, caffeine, and B vitamins can increase carbon dioxide production

29:56 – the problem with Wim Hoff breathing and alternatives that increase carbon dioxide production, including bag breathing and Buteyko breathing

39:57 – carbohydrate sources to oppose stress and support carbon dioxide production

43:48 – other considerations regarding Buteyko, other breathing techniques, and the double-edged sword of prometabolic supplements
