It is a condition that is increasing in incidence for reasons no one can really understand. Medical research has created many drugs to combat the symptoms of Asthma - to help asthmatics gain control over their breathing difficulties.
Using the Buteyko Method, control comes without the use of drugs.
Buteyko teaches you to control your condition by normalizing your breathing.
Better still, without the symptoms of Asthma, you can dramatically cut back
the amount of medication you take.
The Buteyko method offers Asthmatics a
safe, effective system for controlling their asthma, without side-effects.
What is the 'Buteyko Method'?
The method is a program of education and simple breathing exercises
that enables you to control and reduce the frequency of your
asthma symptoms. The program encompasses the Buteyko breathing
exercises, as well as a comprehensive description of Asthma and
how to manage it.
Clinical trials show Asthmatics enjoyed an improved quality of
life with reduced Asthma symptoms, as well as a 96% reduction
in reliever use and a 49% reduction in preventer medication three
months after adopting the Buteyko method.
Buteyko Asthma Education
experience in teaching this method suggests that these results
are achieved by almost all Asthmatics who follow the program.
The Buteyko Method's first priority is safety - Buteyko does not suggest asthmatics
discard their prescribed medication. Course attendees are instructed
to use their reliever medication on an "as needed" basis, and to reduce preventer
medication only under doctor's supervision.
