Buteyko Breathing Normalization is an umbrella term used to describe wellness training offered to people who wish to improve their breathing and achieve optimal health. The development of the method begun in Moscow in the early 1950s by a Russian medical doctor named Konstantin P. Buteyko, who discovered that over-breathing (hyperventilation) is a major contributing factor to, and quite possibly a cause for, many breathing problems and other health issues including asthma, anxiety, and enlarged adenoids. Almost sixty years of work by Russian scientists and medical doctors have refined Dr. Buteyko's approach to the point where we now have a holistic and medication-free method, which not only improves respiratory function but also increases the efficiency of all bodily systems. The Breathing Center exclusively represent the Russian patent holder of the Buteyko Method.
BreathingCenter.com was established in 2009 by Sasha Yakovleva and Thomas Fredricksen, at the request of the Russian patent holders of the Buteyko Breathing Method and Dr. Buteyko's family. Since that time, BreathingCenter.com has further developed the Dr. Buteyko’s approach and now offers various Breathing Normalization programs and educational products online and in person for adults and.

From the perspective of K.P. Buteyko MD-PhD, 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 to help them treat enlarged adenoids naturally. We help them to improve their breathing naturally, and therefore prevent the need for adenoidectomy. It really is a natural adenoid treatment.

Dr. Buteyko’s approach is primarily known for reducing and stopping symptoms of asthma as well as other breathing difficulties and problems. With this so called natural asthma treatment, many asthmatics have been able to stop their suffocation attacks, coughing fits, excessive mucus and other breathing problems by switching to gentle nasal breathing. Please see testimonials of our clients who suffered from asthma but were able to improve their breathing and overall health by learning and applying the Buteyko Breathing Method, which is often casually called a natural asthma cure. Dr. Buteyko believed that asthma is a reaction to over-breathing or hyperventilation. To learn more, please read an interview with Dr. Novozhilov.
There are many breathing techniques available. Often people say: “Try this breathing technique; it will be good for you!” However, it’s important to determine the purpose of a breathing technique, treatment or method before applying it. Is it intended to be good for your spiritual development, or is it good for your looks? Will it improve your health? And if the stated goal is to improve your health, its ability to do this should be proven by medical trials, clinical work and testimonials.
Medical trials and clinical work have proved that the Buteyko method is effective for health improvement. In several European countries it is covered by medical insurance. Many of Breathing Center’s Student's had severe breathing difficulties and other health problems but were able to overcome them by practicing breathing exercises and improving their lifestyle in order to support healthy breathing. Our website contains many testimonials from our clients, who share their stories of successful breathing and overall health improvement. They tell of how this natural treatment improves their asthma, enlarged adenoids, anxiety, COPD and many other breathing difficulties.
The goal of Buteyko's natural hyperventilation (over-Breathing) treatment is to increase the level of CO2 in the lungs up to the medical norm. This has a strong positive impact on the respiratory system and all bodily functions. To understand more, please read this interview with Ira Packman, MD.
Here at the Breathing Center, our Breathing Normalization Specialists work with diverse groups of people helping everyone to overcome breathing problems and other health challenges and achieve optimal health.
Over-breathing or hyperventilation (especially mouth breathing) is extremely destructive to the body. By removing this chronic stress and restoring the innate capacity of the body to heal itself, Buteyko Breathing Normalization eliminates or reduces a wide-range of symptoms. This method is best known as a natural, holistic treatment for general health improvement, especially effective in cases of any breathing difficulties, asthma, COPD, enlarged adenoids and polyps, sleep apnea and snoring, allergies, anxiety, chronic fatigue, hypertension, and many other health problems. Please see the full list of diseases correctable by the Breathing Normalization method created by the originator of this method, K.P. Buteyko MD.
Many people who are not severely ill assume they are healthy. Often this is not true! They may be symptom-free or have mild symptoms, or they may not notice their symptoms, or not take them seriously, or they may assume that it's normal to have mild health problems. Regardless, their health is far from optimal. The condition of people in this state is unstable and can result in the onset of a disease at any time. People habitually call this state "health" only because optimal health is unknown to them. A fish swimming in dirty water does not have a clue about pure water. Dr. Buteyko left us a precious gift: a map to optimal health on all levels - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. We invite you to claim these gifts for yourself through improving your breathing.
The Breathing Normalization method is effective for kids, as well as for adults. Any child above three years of age can learn the breathing exercises. Often children perceive them as a captivating game. The method helps children overcome their health issues and become medicine-free. That is why Breathing Normalization is often called a natural asthma treatment, or a holistic adenoid treatment. It also acts as a preventative for many serious diseases. Besides the reduction or elimination of primary symptoms, the usual outcome is increased concentration and mental clarity, calmness, and the absence of allergies and seasonal colds. Our program Adenoids Without Surgery has become particularly popular among parents. Many children have been able to avoid adenoid surgery after practicing ButeykoBreathing Normalization, as their physicians no longer deemed it necessary. Children who have been able to overcome their breathing difficulties, asthma and allergies with the Breathing Normalization method learn it once, and then use it throughout the rest of their lives.
For women and men thinking about becoming parents, we strongly recommend learning and applying Buteyko® Breathing Normalization to ensure the physical and mental health of your future child. It is much easier to maintain the health of a child born healthy than to have to attempt later on to cure a child who was born unhealthy. Our Breathing Specialists have amassed decades of experience confirming that parents who hyperventilate give birth to babies who hyperventilate as well. If a child over-breathes, they cannot be healthy. Be proactive: Learn the Breathing Normalization method. Remember: It is easier to prevent a disease than to cure it.
