    So I want to try this oxygen rebreather mask trick prescribed by Paul Cheney.

    I just don't know what to get and where. Is this a mask with a bag and a portable tank? Is there a type of oxygen tank I should get? Are there small portable ones?

    Do I need a prescription to get this?

    How much does the whole thing run?

    Thanks but it was this article that inspired me to try it. I just don't know how to practically obtain one of those masks. There are oxygen supply stores in Toronto but I don't know if I need a prescription? What size and type tank? etc

    You might look at some of these links about breathing to increase CO2:

    http://www.breathing.com/articles/carbon-dioxide.htm
    http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/11/24/buteyko-breathing-method.aspx
    http://smart-breathe.com/breathing-device/

    I don't know anything about the devices some of them mention, or a particular breathing protocol like Buteyko, but I think the point is to accomplish the same thing as Dr. Cheney's rebreathing apparatus.

    I was reading a lot about this some weeks ago, but never followed up. Though it's very interesting ---
