Removing Adenoids and Tonsils? I Said, "No!"*

Adenoids treated with Breathing Normalization

Our son M. started the Breathing Normalization Full Training (Level 1) with Sasha at age 6. We always thought that it was due to his allergies that he had excess mucus and a constant blocked nose and was therefore mouth breathing. We put a lot of time and energy into treating his allergies, but didn’t see much improvement regarding his ability to breath through his nose, which was still blocked all the time.

Doctors recommended removing his enlarged adenoids and most likely tonsils. We got very concerned though when his dentist showed us that his jaws and palate started to not grow correctly due to his mouth breathing. Despite the fact, we were still not sold on the idea to have him go through surgery, especially knowing that adenoids and tonsils can regrow, so we searched the Internet.

A Very Active Child Again After Natural Adeniod Treatment*

Adenoids Breathing Treatment

About 2 years after Blessing was born, we started noticing a protracted case of excessive mucus and cough. The diagnosis then said she had pneumonia and so she was treated with some antibiotics. She got some relief but same symptom came back months later and we had to give her more antibiotics.

She has since then had persistent breathing difficulties that at the age of 3, it became very worrisome to watch her sleep – it looks like she was going to pass out – we found out recently that this was called sleep apnea.

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.

Adenoid Removal Avoided After Breathing Normalization Training*

Our 5-year-old son, Tommy, has always been a restless sleeper. In January  2013, we noticed that he was experiencing sleep apnea episodes and was snoring heavily. So we scheduled an appointment with an ENT who told us that Tommy's adenoids were obstructing 90% of his nasal airway and would need to be removed.

My 10 year old daughter Julia had an anaphylactic reaction and was diagnosed at 5 years old with reactive airways and severe allergies.  Over the past 5 years, we have been to countless doctors and have tried many treatments.  Nothing was working.  Julia was prescribed daily inhaled steroids, daily prescription allergy medication and given a nebulizer.  She was told she now is classified as an asthmatic.  She was getting worse.

Natural Approach Helps 6 Year Old Asthmatic Boy*

15 October 2011

My son Nicholas is now six years old. A couple years ago he was prescribed antibiotics for bronchitis. After he finished taking them the coughing continued. The doctors claimed he had intermittent asthma, but honestly I was in denial. I could not believe this was asthma since there were no asthmatics in our family. But unfortunately after he got another cold, his cough became much worse and he started having asthma attacks regularly (scary for the child but also for parents!).

Managing Asthma Without Steroids By Breathing Normalization*

Dale Kinney-210March, 2011

Jill Anderson and I both had children on the high school cross country team and had spoken on the phone about trying to find a better solution for their asthma management. Our kids were both avid runners and their asthma medications were not working very well. Jill mentioned an article that she had read in the NY Times about a breathing method called Buteyko. They were having a workshop up in Woodstock, NY that she was going to with her son Brian. Unfortunately we were not able to go.

Asthma Better Since Doing Breathing Normalization Exercises *

"Before the Breathing Normalization Method I didn't really play any sports like I do now. Once in a while I would try to play football or something with my friends but it was hard for me and I had to take a lot of puffs from my inhaler. Just this season I was able to play soccer and baseball at my school. Since I've been doing Buteyko exercises, my asthma is better, I've had a lot more concentration, which helps me with my art. When taking tests in school, my concentration is better and my grades have gone up."

Written by Julia Williams December, 2010 Daniel, age 8

In September I took my 8 year old son Daniel to an Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor because he had been experiencing headaches, frequent earaches, pain in the back of his throat and he was having trouble breathing. He told us that Daniel’s adenoids were enlarged and would have to be removed. At first I felt somewhat relieved, because his breathing was gradually getting worse and I was worried he might develop asthma.

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.

Very Beneficial Holistic Remedy-No Need For Asthma Inhaler*

Franzi-210 0November, 2010

Buteykotm has been a great experience. It has not only relieved me from my asthma symptoms but also enabled me to do many other things including playing field hockey this past fall. And, in the spring, I plan to play lacrosse. I first heard about the Buteyko method when both my uncle and grandma sent us the article about it from the New York Times. We bought the CD and tried doing at least one exercise once a day. We weren’t able to make real progress however and when my asthma became very bad over the summer we finally decided to fully apply ourselves to it by taking a course with Buteyko Center USA.

My Sons Asthma Attacks Reversed By Alternative Treatment*

Jen Kelly-210 September, 2010

I love the Buteyko breathing method! I've been able to reverse mine and my son's asthma attacks successfully. Learning the Buteyko method is a journey. In the beginning, I was very impatient because I just wanted to get better immediately, and I wanted my CP's and PMP's to be at 40 seconds after just a week! That was not the case though. It takes work and dedication. In the beginning, during an asthma attack, my CP was pretty low at about 11 seconds. Now, first thing in the morning, I'm doing 25-30 seconds. It's a great improvement.

3 Year Old Daughter Off Inhalers After Natural Asthma Cure*


"Dear Jesse,

Kate, my three year old daughter, has been doing great, knock knock on wood... :) We are still doing breathing exercises twice a day on a regular basis, and she has gotten into a habit of breathing through the nose all the time... I am very impressed with the results, as we've been having all our windows open, the pollen counts are high, everyone is coughing and sneezing, but her nose remains clear... She sleeps with open windows, plays outside, runs, jumps, and has been off Claritin and Nasonex for 3.5 weeks now! Since her allergies have always been pretty mild, I think that the nose breathing has really made a difference...
Her asthma has also been pretty much under control... She is still on her costeroid (Flovent) inhaler twice a day, and I am just waiting for her to get a cold to see if she weathers it without a bronchodilator.

Can Run 3 Miles - No Asthma Thanks To Alternative Approach*

January, 2010

asthma teenage boy breathing normalizationI’m 13 years old and I’ve had bad asthma all of my life. I went to all types of doctors for years on end, while taking various medications that didn’t seem to be doing anything. About a month ago, my parents discovered an article in the New York Times about Buteyko Center USA, so we decided to try it out.

When I first started The Buteyko Method, my body was in bad condition. My nose was always badly stuffed up and I would breathe heavily out of my mouth all the time. If I ran up a big hill, or just went for a jog, I would need my inhaler. My body could handle exercise, but it could not handle my asthma.

Since Learning Natural Approach I Haven't Had Asthma Attack*

 September, 2009

Since learning the Buteyko Breathing Method I have not had an asthma attack. I keep my rescue inhaler with me, but have not needed it. My allergy symptoms continue to diminish. The lifestyle course increased my awareness of allergy and asthma triggers and the role stress has played. I'm sharing the information with my boys, so they can continue to be healthy and allergy free. I'm very hopeful that through Buteyko, asthma and allergy symptoms will be eliminated for good.
