Dr. Buteyko’s 2nd Discovery: Chroniosepsis




“It would take humanity about a hundred years to accept my first discovery about breathing. It would take people about three hundred years to accept my second discovery about chronic infections.” K.P. Buteyko MD-PhD.

For most people, it is impossible to achieve the level of optimal health without understanding the second discovery of Dr. Buteyko. When they try, they can find themselves in a strange situation when anything that is supposed to improve their health (better breathing, cleaner eating, regular exercising, cleansing, massage, acupuncture, chiropractic, etc.) would make them feel worse sometimes even triggering new health issues. Fortunately, Dr. Buteyko discovered and described the group of major obstacles, which he called Chroniosepsis, and left us his clear recommendations on how to overcome it.

Since 2009, Sasha Yakovleva has been teaching about the 2nd Discovery of Dr. Buteyko, helping individuals to remove these obstacles and improve their health. Sasha began teaching on this topic following the request of Ludmila Buteyko and Dr. Novozhilov because, according to them, she became a real victim of chroniosepsis and had to share her experience with others. Within the first six months of applying the Buteyko Method, Sasha increased her Positive Maximum Pause significantly. As a result, she was able to overcome her primary health problems; however, the new issues such as sore throat, digestive problems, irritation, fatigue, and others gradually began building up. For two years, Sasha had been suffering from chroniosepsis feeling progressively worse until she became almost disabled. Then, she successfully addressed these serious setbacks and, following Dr. Buteyko's recommendations, was able to overcome them. The second discovery of Dr. Buteyko saved Sasha’s life.

Perhaps, similar to Sasha, you also increased your Positive Maximum Pause drastically, but in some ways, it worsened your health? Or, perhaps, you have been applying the Buteyko Method diligently, yet your Positive Maximum Pause is still below 60 seconds? Or, possibly, you are a Buteyko teacher who never had a chance to learn about chroniosepsis from a reliable source? Or, maybe, you are a health practitioner who is puzzled with the question of why holistic modalities sometimes can weaken people’s health?

If your answer to one of these questions is “yes,” this online course is for you. Don’t miss this chance to learn about the key-discovery of K.P. Buteyko MD-PhD from a reliable source.

This course is not for the beginners, it is for Intermediate/Advanced Level.

Here are videos from Sasha Yakovleva and Jesse Steinberg speaking about Chroniosepsis and the previously held Chroniosepsis live event.
