Dr. Mercola published an article where he highly recommends practicing the Buteyko Breathing method. His main suggestion is; "Breathe Less, Breathe Through Your Nose and Lightly. Breathing wields incredible power over your health", Dr. Mercola wrote, "as it supplies your body with oxygen and removes excess carbon dioxide (CO2) to keep you alive. However, the way you breathe — whether fast or slow, shallow or deep — also sends messages to your body that affect your mood, stress level, blood pressure, immune function and more".
"What's interesting about breathing is that it's both a voluntary and an involuntary process. While your body breathes automatically, you also have the ability to consciously control your breathing — the speed, the depth and whether you breathe through your mouth or your nose."
"So, simply by changing the way you breathe, you can actually influence your health in a variety of ways“
Dr. Mercola believes that Dr. Buteyko’s breathing method is effective and proven to have a positive impact on health and psychological well-being.
