K.P. Buteyko MD considered adenoid removal surgery a crime against children. Buteyko™Breathing Improvement specialists also believe that, in many cases, the adenoids are removed in vain. Enlarged adenoids are nothing more than a defense mechanism of the body to hyperventilation and mouth-breathing, and eliminating this compensatory reaction often entails the development of more serious health problems. At Clinica Buteyko™ Moscow, decades of clinical experience have shown that the enlargement and inflammation of adenoids in children is always associated with the presence of hyperventilation. By restoring normal respiratory function in a child, it is possible to avoid the surgical removal of adenoids. The Buteyko™ Breathing Improvement programs help to achieve this goal.
