Discover the simplest way to overcome stress & anxiety by simply changing the way you breathe

Are You Sick & Tired Of Being Stressed Out?

It wasn’t that long ago that I was SO overwhelmed by the stress in my life that I could barely function.

From the outside, my life looked pretty darn great:

I had a solid job doing Energy Finance for a Fortune 500 company, I was earning an MBA from a top program, and I had (and still do have) a wonderful wife and kids.

But on the inside, I felt like a zombie just going through the motions.

I knew I needed to make a change. I needed to solve this.

I knew that I did NOT want to take pills with major side effects, and I did NOT feel like I needed psychotherapy. I was just STRESSED OUT!

After months of research, I finally discovered that BREATHING RETRAINING was the answer.

While the solution seemed too simple to me at the time, it was amazingly effective.

What I discovered was that stress had changed the way I breathe.

And within weeks of beginning to retrain my breathing, I felt like I had broken free!

I became determined to tell everyone about the power of breathing retraining.

I soon trained as a Breathing Reeducator and after working with clients for several years I created the FOUR WEEKS TO WELLNESS online course.

What Is Breathing Retraining?

Breathing retraining is simply the process of restoring your breathing mechanics and volume back to biological and medical norms.

This is achieved by applying a special set of doctor-developed exercises that are designed specifically for this purpose.

It's Not Your Fault!

Modern life is stressful.

And, sadly, we are not given the knowledge or tools to properly deal with it.

But once you understand the simple physiology of breathing, your breath becomes tool you can use to achieve incredible health and performance benefits.

I created the FOUR WEEKS TO WELLNESS online course to teach you everything you need to know to restore functional breathing.

Because…any plan to reverse stress & anxiety that does not address the underlying breathing dysfunction is doomed to fail in the long run.

Functional breathing is necessary for successful, long-term stress management.

The Effects Of Dysfunctional Breathing Aren't Limited To Stress & Anxiety

Dysfunctional breathing reduces the oxygenation of your body’s cells.

And this is a big deal because:

All chronic pain, suffering, and diseases are caused by a lack of oxygen at the cell level. – Dr. Arthur C. Guyton, The Medical Textbook of Physiology

There are two well know physiological effects that reduce the oxygenation of your cells when you breathe dysfunctionally:

    1. Vasoconstriction – blood vessels constrict and reduce blood flow throughout the body.
    2. The Bohr Effect – hemoglobin binds more tightly to oxygen and releases less to your cells.

Breathing retraining can reverse both of these effects and MAXIMIZE THE OXYGENATION OF YOUR CELLS.

This is the reason that breathing retraining is so power for “chronic pain, suffering, and diseases…”

Some of the additional benefits of the FOUR WEEKS TO WELLNESS course include:

Stress Management

Breathing Retraining restores proper oxygenation to the brain and has a calming effect on the neurons. This helps to calm a racing mind and improve thought quality. You will also learn special techniques to manage stressful situations.

Amazing Sleep

Whether you snore, have sleep apnea, or insomnia, as you work to improve your breathing quality, your sleep quality will improve as well. You will begin sleeping more soundly (and quietly) at night and you will wake up more refreshed.

Improved Heart Health

As your baseline breathing improves, your cardiovascular system will begin to work better as well. Your blood vessels will relax and open to maximize blood flow and the hemoglobin will make more oxygen available to your cells.

Boosted Sport Performance

The better your breathing at rest, the better your breathing during physical exercise. As you retrain your breathing you will also reduce breathlessness during sport and increase endurance and focus.

Breathing Retraining Addresses The 3 Main Issues That Propagate Stress

Issue #1


Your lungs are filled with chemoreceptors.

Upper-chest breathing is part of the fight-or-flight response.

When you breathe in your upper chest, the chemoreceptors in your lungs send signals to your brain to activate the fight-or-flight response.

Over time, chronic stress can lead to habitual upper-chest breathing.

This means that your brain will receive constant signals to activate the stress response, locking you in a vicious stress spiral.

Issue #2


Hyperventilation is an integral part of the fight-or-flight response.

Chronic stress can cause breathing volume to become chronically elevated.

Over time, your brain adapts to this higher breathing volume and your baseline breathing volume remains elevated.

This decreases the carbon dioxide levels in your blood which reduces brain oxygenation due to vasoconstriction and the Bohr Effect.

Under-oxygenated brain cells misbehave and begin to rapid fire. This leads to excessive non-productive thoughts and a racing mind.

Issue #3


Modern life is full of long-term stresses.

And we are never taught how to reduce or eliminate stress in the moments when it arises.

If we allow stress to affect our breathing long-term, it can forever lock us in the stress spiral and reduce the oxygenation of our cells.

In the FOUR WEEKS TO WELLNESS course, you will learn how to deal with stress in the moment it arises.

You will learn to normalize your breathing pattern and turn off the fight-or-flight response.

You will also learn special exercises to normalize your breathing volume and restore the proper oxygenation of your cells.
