What are the best breathing exercises for chronic hyperventilation syndrome? I need to restore normal co2 and o2 levels in my lungs. It's very hard.

In brief: Earlier answer

Treat the anxiety problem to decrease hyperventilation and do frequent rebreathing in a paper bag like a lunch bag to increase co2.
The only other way would be to increase the precursor of co2 which is bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) by taking calcium carbonate (tums) or acetate.
