A Psychiatrist’s View on Asthma, Anxiety, And Buteyko Breathing *

In this interview, we speak with Carole, a psychiatrist and asthma sufferer. Carole tried the Buteyko Method but initially struggled with the practice and quit. After experiencing a near-fatal asthma attack she returned to the Buteyko Method, for the second time in her life to reexamine the benefits and find a different way of responding to her asthma.

 Carole dives into sharing her experiences as well as her perspective on the Buteyko Breathing Method as a psychiatrist and provides feedback in regards to asthma and anxiety as well. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 13 people have asthma, more than 25 million Americans but the Buteyko Breathing Method provides natural relief for everyone! Learn how Carole was able to return to her practice and the results she experienced. 

She first read Sasha’s book Breathe To Heal: Break Free From Asthma but was not able to apply all the instructions on her own and signed up for our two-month-long one-on-one Buteyko Breathing Normalization training. Carol shares her experience taking this course and its outcome.


This is a true testimonial of a Breathing Center’s client; however, the results of application of the Buteyko Breathing Normalization method may vary from person to person. We cannot guarantee identical results to everyone who contacts the Breathing Center. Also, please keep in mind that our services are educational, not medical. Buteyko Breathing Normalization Specialists are teachers and trainers, not medical doctors.
