A healing crisis is a normal and naturally occurring detoxification event. It is experienced by approximately 10% of the people who practice the Buteyko Breathing method. When people normalize their breathing, their metabolism becomes much stronger. As a result, the body starts to flush out toxins, which may have accumulated over many years. For some people, this process may go unnoticed; in others, symptoms may temporarily worsen and become acute. The healing crisis is discussed in detail during the Level 1 Breathing Normalization course. To learn more about the Healing Crisis, please read this blog article.
