Fit to drop
Many find it difficult to comprehend that oxygen can cause problems despite the fact that excess oxygen displaces carbon dioxide, causing increased lactic acid. This excess of lactate then displaces both oxygen and carbon dioxide which suppress our respiration.
For any of you that have taken a spin class (I know I taught them years ago but I ended up fit to drop with a low pulse, low temp, adrenal fatigue and a host of other problems which led me to open the study books), aerobics,zumba, bootcamps, running, cycling al a Bradley Wiggens etc you'll no doubt recognise the build up of lactic acid.
Low carbon dioxide is often linked to hypothyroidism in which their is usually lactate entering the blood at rest due to the adrenalin and noradrenalin (linked to your adrenal fatigue) which is produced to compensate for hypothyroidism. The excess production of lactate causes displacement of carbon dioxide from our blood which increases the rate at which we breath leading to a vicious circle in which hyperventilation becomes a real problem. I've consulted with many clients over the years who suffer real issues with hyperventilation that is linked to diet i.e hypothyroid.
For those of you with hyperventilation linked to hypothyroidism the aim is to reduce adrenalin, lactate, and free fatty acids which impairs our ability to utilise glucose and can lead to edema within the lungs meaning further decreases in our ability to absorb oxygen.
This should be fixed via nutrition not an attempt to increase"fitness".
