Respiration is not just the act of breathing. It also includes the transfer of oxygen from inhaled air to blood and thence to the tissues, and transport of carbon dioxide from tissues to the lungs. If we stop breathing for more than 4- or 5-minutes tissue cells begin to die, with those in the brain succumbing first. The energy that cells need is released when glucose is broken down using oxygen brought to them by capillaries. Carbon dioxide, main waste product from energy production is carried away in veins that return the blood to the right side of the heart. From here blood is pumped to the lungs, where carbon dioxide is discharged, and the blood is recharged with oxygen.
Cells and oxygen; need for adequate oxygen is only safeguard by respiratory center, a small group of nerve cells in brain stem that constantly assesses reports from body monitors. Specialized nerve cells in aorta and carotid arteries may signal that the level of carbon dioxide in blood is too high, indicating that it is not being cleared efficiently. The respiratory center responds by sending out messages to respiratory muscles to increase breathing rate and depth. More air moving into and out of the lungs carries away more carbon dioxide, and the balance of blood gases goes back towards normal. The respiratory center similarly processes reports on blood oxygen levels. We can do some conscious control over breathing, but only within safe limits.
Breathing muscles; uses the intercostal (between ribs) muscles and the diaphragm, a muscular dome separating the chest from abdomen. Respiratory system helps Breathing in and Breathing out.
Lung tissues; bronchioles within the lungs end in a cluster of microscopic air sacs, the alveoli, each surrounded by a capillary network. The distance between the alveolar air and capillary blood is only 0.004 mm, allowing gas to pass in and out early.
Gas exchange; blood flowing through capillaries around alveoli in lungs is low in oxygen and high in carbon dioxide. Oxygen diffuses into capillaries from air we breathe. At the same time carbon dioxide passes into the alveoli, to be breathed out.
Airways, pleura; surrounding each lung are two layers of a membrane called pleura, outer layer lining the chest cavity and inner layer attached to the lung surface. Lungs provide body tissues with Oxygen and to discharge carbon dioxide – metabolic product of internal chemical processes, inlet of major bronchi through which air comes from trachea to lungs.
- Brushing skin after taking shower in morning particularly the head, neck and chest area that stimulate lymphatic circulation and increase general feeling of vitality and well-being.
- Magnesium in sesame seeds helps prevent respiratory disorders by preventing airway spasm.
- One Need to breathe so much is due to carbon dioxide buildup more than the need for oxygen. If there were a different way to get rid of carbon dioxide from the blood!
Though TriOrigin miniature acupuncture a powerful tool, which aids in strengthening immune system, serves to prevent diseases, control pain and increases both the ability to function and quality of lives. As undersigned is dedicatedly working on the different concepts of integrated system of alternative medicine, particularly, TriOrigin energy concept, how energy moves in the body and is interlinked with the environmental energies, to have sprouting effects, even in incurable diseases including respiratory one. Per TriOrigin, respiration dominant energy is dryness which controls if on Yin side, it is lungs meridians’ and if on Yang side, it is large intestine; in further research kidney too is responsible! One has to tackle this energy if to find effects. A good health condition is possible only when a proper amount of balanced energy passes via the energy channels.
