Wheezing Testimonials

I Admire The Strength Of Ludmila And Dr. Buteyko *

Monica helped by Breathing Normalization

I found the Buteyko Method after discovering that I needed to learn to breathe better (whatever that meant) due to having a condition called Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a nerve impingement issue in the neck, under the collarbone and pectoral minor. It can be a disabling condition but, luckily that was not my case. In my research for the impingement, I read that The Buteyko Method could tame asthma, so that piqued my interest.

Years ago, I had severe asthma but it did subside. During the past winter though, I was starting to wheeze again. I suppose due to my past experience I was tolerating symptoms more than I realized. I now had two health reasons to continue on. Then I became curious about what Dr. Buteyko had learned on his spiritual journey through the method he discovered. So I signed up for the Level 1 Breathing Normalization Course. How very fortunate!

Natural Asthma Cure Gives A Much Improved Life Experience*

william hawaiiThomas Fredrickson and Sasha have made an indelible imprint on our quality of life.  The information and techniques from the Breathing Center allow us to sleep better, breath better, have more energy, and a much improved life experience.

I came to the Breathing Center through our naturopath.  He mentioned Dr. Buteyko’s work as we were in his office to receive treatment for hypertension (me), and asthma (her), and overall health guidance.  We spent several weeks following his recommendations with diet and nutritional supplements for overall wellness, but we were not experiencing the type of results we were hoping for - especially with the asthma (early morning wheezing, lack of energy, etc).

Breathing Technique Helped; Asthma Wheezing Subsided*

elizabeth georgeI was introduced to Buteyko Breathing Normalization in November of 2014 by my naturopath doctor.  At that time my white blood cells were abnormally high and my internist doctor wanted to prescribe steroids.

My heart was working hard because my bronchial tubes were inflamed.  My wheezing was no longer once at night but occurring more and more throughout the day, and I was relying on rescue inhaler for relief.  It took me another 6 weeks to remember the word Buteyko and I watched it on YouTube.

I practiced the method on my own following the suggestion of different Buteyko teachers on YouTube.  My white blood cells went from abnormal to normal high.  I was inspired to continue but the wheezing and the frequent use of the inhaler had not subsided.

Natural Asthma Treatment Controls Wheezing, Chronic Cough*

Kimberley and BellaOur seven-year-old daughter had her first asthma attack when she was three.  After trying every supplement I could find to help her breathing difficulties (instigated by allergy, over exertion and viruses), I turned to modern medicine.  The allergy and asthma specialist proscribed Singulair which worked beautifully for a month; when it lost its efficacy they gave us another drug, then another drug and finally prescribed a steroid.

A month later, our daughter became sick with a cold, followed by another, and another, and another.  Every month she was getting ill; but the last time she was sick - taking Albuterol every 2-4 hours and Budesinide (a steroid inhalant); she said “Mommy, I’m losing my breadth walking to the bathroom or even drinking a glass of water”.  That’s when I contacted the Breathing Center - desperate for a solution.

Natural Asthma Treatment To Seize Control Of My Health*

Paul-Hixson-video-Testimonial

30 years ago a physician said you have asthma. And with that I began treatment as an asthmatic. From that day till just a few weeks ago I was using bronchodilators.

Finally I looked on the internet trying to see if there was anything else that had been discovered recently that I could explore, and I came across the article about the Buteyko Method in the New York Times. And this science writer said; "I think more people should look into this." I went to the Breathing Center Web Site and downloaded the E-book. I read it twice that night, and it made a lot of sense. I started applying the techniques in the book, and after a few days saw significant improvement.

Hiking Mountains Possible Due To Breathing Normalization*

July 2013

Drakon,

Today I climbed 2,100 feet to the summit of Angel's Landing. It's a 5-mile round trip. I am so thankful to you and the Breathing Center for making it possible. When I met you 6 months ago, I could barely climb a flight of stairs and now look at me!

Aloha, Anja Hose

 

Breathing Normalization DVD Helped Me With Asthma, Allergies*

Karey Pohn, Jd, PhDMy experience as I learn "Breathing Normalization"

I wanted to write you and tell you how amazed I am at the Breathing Normalization Process.  Even though I am only partway through the process, I have already noticed many changes in my health, anxiety levels, and my reactions to things. My breathing is better, I feel healthier, and am making better food choices. Instead of reaching for food to quell my anxiety, I now use the Breathing Normalization techniques.

My Chiropractor Says Keep Doing It - Breathing Normalization*

Macomb Autism Society

As I am reviewing my Breathing Normalization specialist training materials, I had to pause to share some news and express my appreciation for all of you once again, as well as share my small triumphs...

On a personal note, I've experienced some very encouraging results. My chiropractor told me, "whatever you are doing, it's working so keep doing it!" She said my improvement in my right leg and hip is quite miraculous. She told me for now I only need to see her once a week, and soon only as-needed. She said my progress is amazing. I attempted to explain that it is breathing, but she didn't seem ready to wrap her brain around that concept. She assumes it is my yoga. But in all honesty my muscles are dramatically relaxing, making my yoga (and cardio) much easier.

Asthma Controlled Thanks To Breathing Center's Natural Cure*

Anja

I always thought I had "mild" asthma. Sure, it affected me on a daily basis, whether I was trying to exercise or sitting too close to somebody with strong perfume, but I figured since I wasn't confined to the house, my asthma was under control. Then a year ago I ended up in the hospital with a mild cold because my rescue inhaler wasn't helping and I couldn't get a full breath. My recovery took a long time and a year later, when I was "fully recovered" from the incident, I was still on the highest daily dose of Symbicort and using my rescue inhaler daily. I was at my wits' end with the side effects and frustrated with this looming future: I was 25 years old and didn't see myself getting off the medications anytime soon, if ever.

Severe Asthma Allergies Sinuses, Breathing Normalization Helped*

Breathing Center's student stopped her asthma and other breathing difficulties. Before applying the Breathing Normalization Method, I had what I considered severe asthma, severe allergies, severe sinus troubles, exercise-induced asthma and suffocation attacks. My doctor had me on multiple medications, multiple inhaled steroids that didn't really help. I used my rescue inhaler over ten times a day. After applying Breathing Normalization, within a very short period of time - a couple of weeks - my body no longer created these symptoms and these reactions. I was able to reduce the rescue inhaler, and then I never went back.  Soon, I stopped using my other medications completely.  I now have a very healthy relationship with my breathing.

No More Visits To ER Since Breathing Normalization Training*

carol-clouse 1I never had asthma. My younger brother wheezed, and anxiously took puffs from his rescue inhaler through his twenties and early thirties. Then one day, in my mid-forties, I suddenly couldn’t breathe. It was like two hands reached up from somewhere in my gut, grabbed both my lungs, and squeezed. I had no idea what was happening. “Is this an asthma attack?” I asked myself? But I don’t have asthma. I couldn’t figure out what else it could possibly be, so I called my brother. I didn’t have an inhaler, so his best suggestion was that I take a hot shower.

No Longer Anemic, Thyroid Normal-Thank You Breathing Center*

Diane Ftzgerald 2011 2

My story is one that still shocks me today when I tell it to family and friends. The day I called the Buteyko Center in Woodstock the summer of 2010, I was suffering from "exercise-induced" Asthma that made it impossible for me to walk up a hill or a flight of stairs without wheezing. My doctor prescribed me steroids and bronchodilators that he said I would be taking the rest of my life. I was also diagnosed with a low functioning thyroid and further prescribed medication that was expected to be taken for life. I was anemic with dangerously low iron stores and taking supplements in hopes of improving that condition. I was on a slippery slope of medical intervention that I knew was, at best, treating my symptoms, not the problem, and at worst, making me much sicker.

Cannot Explain The Relief After Natural Breathing Treatment*

Monty Gamble

As I sit in Buteyko Center USA's studio writing this testimonial I cannot explain the pure relief that I now feel. Over the past year I have had two sinus surgeries, a trip to the E.R. and a diagnosis of incurable asthma plus Common Variable Immune Deficiency. My next step was going to be continued surgery, which was not the direction that I wanted to take my life in.

After Natural Alternative Approach Chest Tightness Subsided*

Olivia-and-Mom-cropped-210 0January, 2011

At 40 years old, I was diagnosed with asthma. My condition progressed from mild episodes of shortness of breath on the tennis court to persistent daily breathing problems that forced me to quit tennis and all forms of exercise. Just walking made me breathless and my chest tight. I literally had no life. I struggled to get the breath to read to my children. My condition actually seemed to get worse in spite of strong prescription medications like symbicort, zopanex and prednisone.

Words Cannot Express Thanks For Solution To Breathing Problems*

streets photo 0As a young child I witnessed an asthma attack when I was visiting my cousin; her younger sister came into the room wheezing, gasping for breath, and tears pouring down her red face as she begged for help. The severity, the fear, and the almost violent attack on her young body held me in shock and apprehension as arrangements were made for her to be taken to the hospital. I realize that vicariously, this was my introduction into the world of an asthmatic. I never imagined that the episode I witnessed would evolve into my own life story. I vividly remember the day in July when the Dr. diagnosed my symptoms as asthma. I took care of my aging father in law and when he was settled for the afternoon, I decided to shop, then spent a peaceful evening before retiring early. I woke up at around 3AM gasping for breath and coughing; I decided to drive myself to the hospital which was close to our home.

Holistic Remedy Used-Did Not Need Allergy Medicine In Spring*

November, 2010

When my teenage son was diagnosed with asthma following severe seasonal allergies in 2009, the physician prescribed daily medication and a rescue inhaler. He said it was the only option we had. After taking his medications regularly for several months, my son still felt constant tightness in his chest and was unable to run competitively as he had prior to becoming ill. The doctor did not seem to believe that my son was still having problems.

Until Discovering Breathing Normalization Nothing Helped Asthma*

herb birch-photo-210

UPDATE:
Just a year ago my breathing was very labored. I couldn't walk fifty feet without a great deal of discomfort. When I got off an airplane I would have to stop several times on the way to baggage claim, stairs in my house were avoided at all costs and so it went. I was taking several medications, some worked a little, I used inhalers when I was very uncomfortable... All of my doctors tried to help me but nothing was making me better; Symbicort has been the biggest help. But until I discovered the Buteyko Method and changed my lifestyle nothing seemed to help very much, I was feeling desperate and depressed.
