I am a 70 year old man, and I’m happy to report that due to learning and applying the principles of the Buteyko breathing method as taught to me by the great staff of the Breathing Center, I am currently enjoying excellent health. But that definitely was not always the case.
In fact, I had lived with significant breathing problems pretty much my whole life, up until about 2 years ago. As a child, I had lots of allergy related “summer colds” that seemed to always end in endless coughing bouts and a burning feeling in my chest. I was never able to run as far or fast as other kids my age and when I tried, I would end up gasping for breath. I seemed to catch more colds that most of my classmates and they definitely lasted longer. In hindsight, I now realize that I breathed through my mouth a lot, but I had no idea at the time that that was bad for me.
