People affected describe themselves as completely exhausted or metaphorically speaking as “burned-out”, “running on empty” or “low battery”.

Listlessness and a lack of energy which in worst case results in the diagnosis “burnout” can, among others, be attributed to the production of energy (ATP). As respiratory air contains just 21 % oxygen it is impossible to naturally supply the human body with 100% oxygen, especially when bearing in mind that of these 21 % about 75 % are exhaled again unused. Just about 5% respiratory oxygen are utilized by the body’s cells.
A good way to regain energy and for vegetative relaxation with the help of switching from the sympathetic nervous system (working) to the parasympathetic nervous system (relaxation) has been presented by the company Airnergy. A newly developed technology energizes respiratory air (spirovitalization) and helps with the following.
