of the Buteyko Method

I just finished a session with my client and decided to do this blog. I had a session with a woman who was very disappointed because her daughter learned "Buteyko" and as a result of it, her health worsened; she started experiencing strong symptoms. Now, this girl is on antibiotics and, of course, her mother is very concerned;  she doesn't understand what's going on with her daughter.

The reason it all happened was that she was taught to do 'Buteyko' by pushing her Control Pause or by doing so-called 'Aggressive Maximum Pauses'. This is very dangerous and absolutely should not be applied. I think I have said this before a few times, but seeing the mother of this girl who was about to cry, I decided to emphasize it again.

It is true that once in a while Dr. Buteyko used so-called aggressive maximum pauses with his patients. But he knew exactly with what conditions they were helpful and with what conditions they were damaging to health. So he used them with specific conditions in mind. On top of that, those pauses were always used under the supervision of himself as a Medical Doctor or other Doctors who worked at Clinica Buteyko in Moscow.

If you don't have a trained Buteyko Doctor supervising your Buteyko practice do not do any aggressive, pushing maximum breath holds!

So please be reasonable; please be careful; and please treat your breathing with respect. It's really easy to damage health. And it's not that easy to restore it. So please think first before you start doing any kind of violent manipulations with your breathing - whether they are called 'advanced' or 'maximum' or whatever, it doesn't matter. You have to be gentle with yourself.
