Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Testimonials

Buteyko Breathing Method Helps COPD And Emphysema*

Chris Thomas TestimonialI'm a 68 year old male Tai Chi instructor living in the UK.

For the last 10 years I have been suffering with COPD, emphysema, and I have been put on a lot of medication and using oxygen. I always knew that this didn't feel right for me.

One day while browsing the internet I came across The Breathing Center, and after having a consultation with Thomas, I decide to take the level one course early in December. Since doing this course my medication has halved, and I very rarely have to use my oxygen.

I have been so impressed with the professionalism of The Breathing Center, that I have decided to continue on with the level two course. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Thomas and Sasha for all of their continued support.

Holistic Treatment For Asthma Means I Can Manage Without Medication *

I usually just refer to it as asthma, but really it is cronic obstructive lung disease (COPD). I have an oxygen machine and all sorts of other equipment. I really felt like; if I got on a plane and went to visit someone I would be in trouble because I didn't have all my equipment with me.

I don't feel that way anymore. I've had asthma my whole life but, since starting the Breathing Normalization Method (Training), I feel I can manage episodes of wheezing and stress without medication.


Until Learning Breathing Normalization I Suffered From COPD*

UPDATE...January 2, 2012

I wish to start this New Year by updating you on the amazing progress that I have made with my lifelong health challenges with breathing. As you recall, my lungs were severely damaged by breathing sulfuric acid fumes when I was attacked by an intruder in my home. I suffered from lung damage until I learned about Breathing Normalization ™. The Buteyko Method wasn’t nearly as difficult as the skin grafts to over fifty percent of my body. The two miracles in my life have been that I survived those injuries in my late twenties and that I have had the great fortune to study with you all at The Breathing Center at both your Woodstock office and online via Skype.

My Breathing Better Every Day After Alternative Treatment*

I have been under the care of Thomas and Sasha Yakovlev-Fredricksen and their Staff Members at Buteyko Center USA for the past 8 weeks, I sought out their assistance because I was very concerned about my breathing. It didn't seem like anything I was doing was working properly. My breathing got worse and I worried more and more about it. I was diagnosed with COPD and placed on several forms of medication, all of them helped some. I was told by my General Practitioner, Cardiologist and Pulmonary Physicians to lose weight.
