Petri Huovinen has been using IQoro for five months, but he noticed early on that his diaphragm – a muscle just below his lungs – responded well to the training.
His background in martial arts and yoga had taught him the importance of the diaphragm for breathing.
Quickly noticed that something was happening with his diaphragm
“I had no great expectations for IQoro, but from day one I felt something happening with my diaphragm. I experienced training pains.
But just like with regular strength training, it takes time. You don’t build muscle in three weeks. After three months, I felt the first improvements.
After three months, I felt the first improvements.
Strengthening the diaphragm and improving breathing for anxiety
In yoga, breathing is used to calm the body. Petri wanted to use deep breathing to counteract anxiety, but this can be challenging if the diaphragm is weak.
“I have a stronger diaphragm, which has improved my breathing, and improved breathing makes me feel better. I have had some problems with anxiety. But breathing correctly helps reduce it.”
Improved breathing makes me feel better.
Tried other methods for strengthening the diaphragm
Before using IQoro, Petri had tried other methods to strengthen the diaphragm, but found them cumbersome and not very effective.
“For example, you can put a lot of weight on your diaphragm and breathe, but it’s hard to add weights and you look like an idiot in the gym. You do it once and give up.
Several other symptoms were relieved at the same time
After three months of training, Petri began to notice changes. As well as improving his breathing, other long-standing symptoms disappeared.
“I used to gag when I brushed my teeth, but no longer do. I used to almost throw up, and it made me reluctant to brush my teeth.”
“And now I can swallow tablets without any problem. I’ve had problems swallowing tablets all my life…”
Invest in health or pay with illness.
However, despite the fact that the symptoms caused problems in everyday life, Petri never thought to seek help.
“It had never crossed my mind. Before I found IQoro, I didn’t think anything could be done about it.”
“But if something can be done about it, just put in the time, because here’s the stinger: invest in health or pay with illness.”
Malin suddenly found it difficult to swallow and lost a lot of weight. People reacted as if she had gotten an eating disorder, but eventually IQoro helped her to start eating again.
It was obvious that the problem was in my throat and not in my head. Read Malin’s story
