Stress and excess alkalinity cause hyperventilation — over-breathing.
Over-breathing causes carbon dioxide depletion in the blood.
Low carbon dioxide levels lead to low oxygen levels in the blood and throughout the body.
Carbon dioxide drives oxygen deeper into the body … into the cells, organelles, and beyond.
Carbon dioxide is actually a remedy for pneumonia. (This has been known for at least 100 years.)
According to ecstatichamster (Ray Peat Forum, Jun. 14, 2018) …
“Just breathe normally into the bag. Inhale, exhale. You can try to exhale longer, by exhaling and pausing without inhaling. The secret is to inhale the rebreathed high-CO2 air that you can only get naturally with this method or a method that has ‘dead space’ that you are breathing into and out of.
“Two minutes is probably okay, 3 or 4 times a day. you can work up to 15 minutes. Don’t stress out, breathe regular air at times if it starts feeling stressful or you get a headache. Then come back to bag breathing. In other words, don’t do it too intensely.”
The following is NOT medical advice …
I usually bag-breathe only between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m., ignoring the usual medical advice of taking no more than 12 breaths at one time, continuing as long as it feels comfortable to do so.
I started with six or seven breaths at a time, working my way up to more.
Sometimes it’s uncomfortable to take more than a few breaths, so I usually quit and try again later.

what’s the difference between:
Prismer of Love~Spermal fast speed and Prismer of Love~Ovum fast speed ?
Spermal is morning listening, when is Ovum, at night?

Sperm is daytime listening and Ovum is nighttime listening.

Are there ‘optimum times’ for listening to either?

Hi Atom, the Prismer of Love audio is very long. How long do you have to listen to it for it to be effective?
what exactly is the PoL designed to do? Does it stir up negative emotions inside you?

The Prism-er of Love (Sonic Colonic) is a meditation aid. The regular version is designed to be listened to every day for a year before “graduating” to the slower versions. I listened to the first version close to 24 hours a day for an entire year before listening to slower versions. It played on a continuous-play tape recorder night and day at home, played in my car, and played at work while I managed a health food store. It eventually started to play inside my head as well. It brought me many “physical” benefits since they often accompany “spiritual” ones. Yes, negative emotions come up according to the time of day and month and year — that’s why it is played for a total of one year before moving on to more advanced versions, ultimately a super-slow five-hour one.
