The Dangers of Over-Breathing with Dr. Peter Litchfield #259
Breathing correctly is VITAL to your health... but it's also a concept often overlooked in the world of fitness, health, and nutrition. However, no body transformation program, or path to life optimization, is complete without it. Without proper breathing practices or techniques, you are setting yourself up for failure.
Dr. Peter Litchfield joins me on the podcast today for a truly transformative conversation about breathing mechanics for high performance, the balance of respiratory chemistry, and the psychology behind breath. Respiratory psychophysiology has been Dr. Litchfield's primary focus for over 20 years.
Dr. Litchfield is the President of the Professional School of Behavioral Health Sciences, which integrates physiological and behavioral sciences for innovative applications in healthcare, human service, and performance enhancement. He also serves as CEO for Better Physiology, Ltd., the manufacturer of CapnoTrainer instrumentation used for identifying dysfunctional breathing habits, and assisting people in replacing them with new functional ones.
