Breathing & Health Improvement: Essential Questions
What is Buteyko™ Breathing Normalization?
In 2009, following the request of patent holders of the Buteyko™ method and Dr. Buteyko’s family, Sasha and Thomas Yakovlev-Fredricksen established Breathing Center. Breathing Center adjusted the breathing improvement method further and developed a series of educational programs for adults and children called Buteyko™ Breathing Normalization training. These wellness programs are based on breathing exercises and lifestyle changes conducive to healthy breathing.

Could you help my child with enlarged adenoids avoid adenoidectomy?
From the perspective of Dr. Buteyko, enlarged adenoids is a bodily reaction to over-breathing, especially mouth breathing. When hyperventilation is eliminated, adenoids stop growing and breathing becomes quiet, gentle, and healthy.
Breathing Normalization specialists work with children all over the world who face adenoid removal surgery. We help them to improve their breathing naturally, and therefore prevent the need for adenoidectomy. To learn about our program Adenoids without Surgery, please visit the Adenoids page of our website.
Why is this method often called a Natural Asthma Cure?
Dr. Buteyko’s approach is primarily known for reducing and stopping symptoms of asthma as well as other breathing difficulties. Many asthmatics have been able to stop their suffocation attacks, coughing fits, and other symptoms by switching to gentle nasal breathing. Please see testimonials of our clients who suffered from asthma but were able to improve their breathing and health by learning and applying this holistic method, which is often casually called a Natural Asthma Cure.
