Breathing is a hot topic because of Covid-19!

In the last few months, millions of people got infected by the Coronavirus. Afterward, they had trouble restoring their normal breathing pattern. The BreathBalanz can help the healthcare professional as well as the consumer to restore this breathing pattern.



In the last few months, many people talked about breathing and having difficulties with their breathing. With Covid-19 a whole new interest is coming for this subject. We take our breathing for granted, but when our breathing pattern is disturbed, people get a lot of complaints. It takes 5 to 6 weeks to restore it, it is not easy and takes time to do the exercises.


Dysfunctional Breathing (DB) is characterized by abnormal breathing rates & patterns, most of the time without any medical reason or caused by diseases like COPD, Asthma and now Covid-19.


Dysfunctional breathing (DB) is a respiratory condition that is often poorly understood amongst health care professionals worldwide, leading to its under-diagnosis and/or misdiagnosis in clinical practice.


The reason for its misdiagnosis is often related to the similarities of the symptoms related to many cardiopulmonary diseases like palpitations, chest pain or respiratory distress. For this healthcare field, there is no standard for diagnosing DB.


A dysfunctional breathing (DB) pattern is often caused by stress, anxiety and/or hyperventilation, but nowadays even post Covid-19 patients are facing problems with breathing properly again.


Many people know the term Hyperventilation Syndrome (HVS), which is not a disease but a way of breathing. It’s very important to know how people started to hyperventilate; it might be caused by depression, anxiety, or stress, and then not only medication may solve this problem but they needed to restore their breathing pattern as well. They need to restore their breathing frequency, the way they breathe (more chest than abdominal breathing) and the acidity of the blood must be restored.


During Covid-19, 45% of adults (men & women) reported an increase in stress and anxiety state exacerbating mental health and substance abuse amongst both genders.

Understanding that abnormal breathing rates and patterns influence our mind and body, we sure need to face this problem.
