Buteyko Breathing Method Made Tremendous Difference In My Life! *

Breathing Center's Testimonial: Lawrence

About 15 years ago I began having difficulty breathing when I was exercising. Gradually, my symptoms became more frequent until I would get out of breath just walking up stairs. I went to my doctor, and after an x-ray I was diagnosed with pulmonary sarcoidosis, an inflammatory condition that was leaving my lungs with a lot of scar tissue. My doctor prescribed a steroid inhaler and I took this twice daily for many years. Although this seemed to help the symptoms at first, over several years the inhaler became less effective, and I began to notice that my mind was not as clear as it used to be and my energy was decreasing. My doctor recommended that I increase the dosage of the steroid inhaler, but I didn't feel this was a good long-term solution. I had begun to lose my purpose in living.

I began searching for other answers online and came across the work of Dr. Buteyko and the online work of Sasha Yakovleva's Breathing Normalization Training.

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.

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.

No Longer On Asthma Medication After Buteyko Method

mike-g-new still 1It has been over a year now since I started the Buteyko method. Before I began the method I was living on a rescue inhaler for asthma. I had no choice because my stomach would not tolerate the steroids I was prescribed. A shot of the inhaler would take away my symptoms for a few hours until I needed more. Each time I would think about the negative long term effects the medication would have on my health, I remember the most frequent side affect was blurred side vision which would result in migraine headaches.

With each Buteyko method session I listened and learned to all that Thomas had taught me. My mind was like sponge absorbing each and every word. I quickly realized that this was not a quick fix but a lifelong education where I was given the tools to heal my body naturally without drugs. It was now my responsibility to insert this education into my daily life.

Respiratory Infection Helped By Breathing Normalization*

Celeste 1-resized 6

I had a demanding job and a growing family; after I was admitted into the hospital at age 41 I decided I couldn’t maintain my lifestyle and my health so I resigned from my job. The stress in my life dropped 100 fold. I had only one significant health issue after that, but ultimately was able to live free of all drugs and feel well for over 2 years. Then, while living out of the country, I came down with a significant respiratory infection. The drugs were launched in force – regular nebulizing, a myriad of progressively stronger antibiotics, prednisone, inhalers; the list felt endless. My body became accustomed to the prednisone and stopped producing cortisol. I became adrenal insufficient; my adrenal glands dried up – no energy, constant weight loss, headaches and consistent mood swings. I contracted pneumonia twice this past winter. And the mucus production in my chest was unending. My life was controlled by what felt like my never ending illness. In summary, I was a mess!

Natural Aid For Breathing Problems- Relief And Inspiration*

Moira photo-web 2

I’m a 25 year old New Zealander recently moved to Sweden. I’ve been suffering from chronic sinusitis and severe eczema for years, but have always managed to get by (although it's been a struggle at times). I’ve always had low energy and a weak immune system, so I manage to catch colds when I least need it. Gradually though, my symptoms got worse. Chronic fatigue overcame me; I found it hard to fall asleep and breathe comfortably at night: but when I slept, it was a lot. The eczema increased, and the stuffy blocked nose demanded many tissues everyday. For years steroid medication has always inflamed my symptoms. It was time to find something drug-free: a natural and effective solution to my overall health, not just one aspect of it.

For as long as I can remember I have been searching for an explanation and a possible treatment for my lifelong condition of asthma and chronic bronchitis. Four months ago, by pure luck, I came across an article about the Buteyko Method. The initial simple explanation "asthma can be triggered by breathing too much" immediately caught my attention like nothing else before.

Alternative Asthma Remedy Helps Me Reduce Need For Steroids*

Testimonial 4 Image-Mike-DART LAUNCHSeptember, 2009

It all started when I was ten years old and came down with pneumonia. After my recovery, I started getting asthma attacks whenever I went out to play with the other kids. The doctors said I developed severe allergies, needed allergy shots and an awful tasting liquid medication. The treatment helped but did not stop it. I would still get severe attacks, just less frequently.

August 2009

I came to the Buteyko Breathe-less system by accident, or by fate, depending on how one sees things. My wife Doris phoned Thomas and Sasha after seeing a poster promoting a workshop. During the conversation, she told them of my exercise-induced asthmatic condition. They then invited us to tea at their lovely studio. After much discussion, we both enrolled in the Breathe-less program.
