Here at the Breathing Center, our Breathing Normalization Specialists work with diverse groups of people helping everyone to overcome breathing problems and other health challenges and achieve optimal health.
People who are ill:
Over-breathing or hyperventilation (especially mouth breathing) is extremely destructive to the body. By removing this chronic stress and restoring the innate capacity of the body to heal itself, Buteyko Breathing Normalization eliminates or reduces a wide-range of symptoms. This method is best known as a natural, holistic treatment for general health improvement, especially effective in cases of any breathing difficulties, asthma, COPD, enlarged adenoids and polyps, sleep apnea and snoring, allergies, anxiety, chronic fatigue, hypertension, and many other health problems. Please see the full list of diseases correctable by the Breathing Normalization method created by the originator of this method, K.P. Buteyko MD.
People Who Think They Are Healthy:
Many people who are not severely ill assume they are healthy. Often this is not true! They may be symptom-free or have mild symptoms, or they may not notice their symptoms, or not take them seriously, or they may assume that it's normal to have mild health problems. Regardless, their health is far from optimal. The condition of people in this state is unstable and can result in the onset of a disease at any time. People habitually call this state "health" only because optimal health is unknown to them. A fish swimming in dirty water does not have a clue about pure water. Dr. Buteyko left us a precious gift: a map to optimal health on all levels - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. We invite you to claim these gifts for yourself through improving your breathing.
Children And Parents:
The Breathing Normalization method is effective for kids, as well as for adults. Any child above three years of age can learn the breathing exercises. Often children perceive them as a captivating game. The method helps children overcome their health issues and become medicine-free. That is why Breathing Normalization is often called a natural asthma treatment, or a holistic adenoid treatment. It also acts as a preventative for many serious diseases. Besides the reduction or elimination of primary symptoms, the usual outcome is increased concentration and mental clarity, calmness, and the absence of allergies and seasonal colds. Our book Adenoids Without Surgery has become particularly popular among parents. Many children have been able to avoid adenoid surgery after practicing ButeykoBreathing Normalization, as their physicians no longer deemed it necessary. Children who have been able to overcome their breathing difficulties, asthma and allergies with the Breathing Normalization method learn it once, and then use it throughout the rest of their lives.
For women and men thinking about becoming parents, we strongly recommend learning and applying Buteyko® Breathing Normalization to ensure the physical and mental health of your future child. It is much easier to maintain the health of a child born healthy than to have to attempt later on to cure a child who was born unhealthy. Our Breathing Specialists have amassed decades of experience confirming that parents who hyperventilate give birth to babies who hyperventilate as well. If a child over-breathes, they cannot be healthy. Be proactive: Learn the Breathing Normalization method. Remember: It is easier to prevent a disease than to cure it.
