Breathe Less To Create Optimal Health And Longevity!

What is Buteyko Breathing Normalization? 

Buteyko Breathing Normalization is an umbrella term used to describe wellness training offered to people who wish to improve their breathing and achieve optimal health. The development of the method begun in Moscow in the early 1950s by a Russian medical doctor named Konstantin P. Buteyko, who discovered that over-breathing (hyperventilation) is a major contributing factor to, and quite possibly a cause for, many breathing problems and other health issues including asthma, anxiety, and enlarged adenoids. Almost sixty years of work by Russian scientists and medical doctors have refined Dr. Buteyko's approach to the point where we now have a holistic and medication-free method, which not only improves respiratory function but also increases the efficiency of all bodily systems. The Breathing Center exclusively represent the Russian patent holder of the Buteyko Method. 

What is was established in 2009 by Sasha Yakovleva and Thomas Fredricksen, at the request of the Russian patent holders of the Buteyko Breathing Method and Dr. Buteyko's family.  Since that time, has further developed the Dr. Buteyko’s approach and now offers various Breathing Normalization programs and educational products online and in person for adults and.

Breathing Normalization Specialists primarily work with people who suffer from hyperventilation; they have various breathing difficulties, such as asthma, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), sleep apnea, snoring, allergies, hyperventilation syndrome, chronic cough, rhinitis (stuffy nose), nasal polyps, and enlarged adenoids and tonsils. However, the Buteyko Breathing Normalization method is not limited by these health issues.

Could you help my child with enlarged adenoids avoid adenoidectomy?

From the perspective of K.P. Buteyko MD-PhD, enlarged adenoids is a bodily reaction to over-breathing, especially mouth breathing. When hyperventilation is eliminated, adenoids stop growing and breathing becomes quiet, gentle, and healthy.

Breathing Normalization Specialists work with children all over the world who face adenoid removal surgery to help them treat enlarged adenoids naturally. We help them to improve their breathing naturally, and therefore prevent the need for adenoidectomy. It really is a natural adenoid treatment.

Why is the Buteyko Method often called "a natural asthma cure"?

Dr. Buteyko’s approach is primarily known for reducing and stopping symptoms of asthma as well as other breathing difficulties and problems. With this so called natural asthma treatment, many asthmatics have been able to stop their suffocation attacks, coughing fits, excessive mucus and other breathing problems by switching to gentle nasal breathing. Please see testimonials of our clients who suffered from asthma but were able to improve their breathing and overall health by learning and applying the Buteyko Breathing Method, which is often casually called a natural asthma cure.  Dr. Buteyko believed that asthma is a reaction to over-breathing or hyperventilation.

What is the difference between Buteyko Breathing Normalization and other breathing techniques or hyperventilation treatments?

There are many breathing techniques available. Often people say: “Try this breathing technique; it will be good for you!” However, it’s important to determine the purpose of a breathing technique, treatment or method before applying it. Is it intended to be good for your spiritual development, or is it good for your looks? Will it improve your health? And if the stated goal is to improve your health, its ability to do this should be proven by medical trials, clinical work and testimonials.

Medical trials and clinical work have proved that the Buteyko method is effective for health improvement. In several European countries it is covered by medical insurance. Many of Breathing Center’s Student's had severe breathing difficulties and other health problems but were able to overcome them by practicing breathing exercises and improving their lifestyle in order to support healthy breathing. Our website contains many testimonials from our clients, who share their stories of successful breathing and overall health improvement. They tell of how this natural treatment improves their asthma, enlarged adenoids, anxiety, COPD and many other breathing difficulties.

What is the goal of this approach to Over-breathing or Hyperventilation?

The goal of Buteyko's natural hyperventilation (over-Breathing) treatment is to increase the level of CO2 in the lungs up to the medical norm. This has a strong positive impact on the respiratory system and all bodily functions. To understand more, please read this interview with Ira Packman, MD. 



Buteyko Breathing Method: Improve Your Breathing And Health


Over-breathing, or hyperventilation, reduces oxygen delivery to the brain, heart, kidneys and other vital organs; creates spasms in various systems; damages metabolism and the functioning of the nervous, cardio-vascular, respiratory and immune systems. Over time, hyperventilation will gradually destroy a person's health and in some cases it can even be lethal. 

Here at Breathing Center, we teach how to restore a person's health by reducing or eliminating excessive breathing. This method is based on the ground-breaking findings of K. P. Buteyko, MD who discovered that the improvement of breathing leads to significant improvement in the functioning of immune, nervous, digestive, respiratory and other bodily systems. His discoveries were confirmed by sixty years of the application of Buteyko Breathing Method under medical supervision in Clinica Buteyko in Moscow. Clinica Buteyko and the patent holders of the Buteyko method granted the Breathing Center official rights to teach it.
