Carbon Dioxide is an extremely important gas in the body and is actually the main regulator of respiration in the brain. To prove this point when you workout, your CO2 increases, which increases your respiration. BUT if we are involved in acute or Chronic stress our CO2 levels can shift. This can then cause a diminished amount of blood flow to the brain and prevent RBCs from Releasing oxygen.
Both of which can contribute to and cause anxiety.
Is there a medication you can take to fix your Co2? Unfortunately not, but Dr. Woodall can teach you to retrain your breath to tolerate MORE CO2. It might feel a little awkward and anxiety provoking at first but it can greatly enhance your ability to stay more balanced.
