"I found out about Buteyko at the dog park from a friend of mine, because I'm a dog lover. I've had asthma for about 20 years. My doctor told me I needed to get rid of my animals. I wouldn't do that. My symptoms were also worse in the wintertime, in the cold weather, and I would have to take my steroids and use my inhaler. I started practicing the Breathing Normalization Method and felt the results right away. I feel more energized, I lost weight, and my craving for food lessened."
