All the Way Up

What are your Control and Positive Maximum Pauses? By a simple measurement of your breathing, you can evaluate how healthy you are.

Due to K. Buteyko's scientific findings, a totally healthy person has a Positive Maximum Pause (PMP) of 60 sec and a Control Pause (CP) of 30 sec or higher. This means that for a healthy person it is comfortable and easy to stay without any air for one minute and extremely easy to do it for half a minute. At this point a person does not have any symptoms and his immune system protects him/her from seasonal respiratory problems as well as many serious health issues.

Notice Your Breathing

Take a moment and notice your breathing. Become familiar with it: you need to know exactly how you breathe when you are physically active or at rest, when you talk, sing, eat, or when you argue with someone. Do you often breathe through your mouth? If your answer is 'yes', you hyperventilate, meaning that your body consumes more air than it needs. Excessive breathing is damaging to all bodily systems and, consequently, it contributes into the development of many diseases. Remember, there is no health without healthy breathing. Take a moment and notice how you breathe.

A new round of Breathing Normalization Interactive Online Group classes will start in the beginning of February. For more information or to register, please click here.

Deadly Radiation?

It does not have to be this way, established by Dr. K.P. Buteyko.

On April 26, 1986, there was an accident at a nuclear station in Chernobyl. The Soviet mass media tried to hide the news and the public learned of the event only a few days after it happened, when it became clear that the mass scale of the catastrophe could not be silenced. People were horrified: it wasn't just adults who were inside the radiation zone, there were children too. People were being evacuated out of Chernobyl and into Kiev, which was 140 kilometers from the site, anyone who could leave, did.

About The Buteyko Method

A Summary of the Pathophysiology of Chronic Hyperventilation

by Ira Packman, M.D.

ira-packman-md-on-chronic-hyperventilation

The fact that chronic hyperventilation (CHV) has an effect on the lungs is easily understood and explained. The systemic (whole body) effects however, are physically and physiologically distant from the lungs and therefore are more difficult to understand. The multi-system, wide spread systemic ramifications of chronic hyperventilation are numerous.

Open Letter to Buteyko Practitioners

Written by Ludmila Buteyko 

The discoveryLudmila Buteyko photo of Dr. Buteyko is now 56 years old and yet it is still not accepted by the western medical doctors. Why? During his life in the Soviet Union, Dr. Konstantin Buteyko was frequently persecuted: under these circumstances he did not have legal rights to train medical doctors. At that time, he mostly taught his ex-patients, those who successfully applied his method to cure themselves and wanted to pass it on to others. He trained them to help other people in need for a cure but never allowed them to train others to become Buteyko practitioners.

Buteyko Method

Do you remember the full figured women models of the Renaissance paintings? At that time people were convinced that eating excessively was the best approach to health and beauty. Their logic is easy to understand: a human body needs nutrition, the more you give, the healthier it becomes. Right? It took several centuries for doctors to prove that obesity is a major risk factor for heart disease, diabetes, cancer and many other health issues. Today people are concerned with reducing their food consumption to ensure health and longevity.
