I took the Buteyko Breathing courses with my asthmatic husband, David. And I am very glad I did! I feel that my health has been affected positively by the Buteyko method. It was just an added advantage! I never had asthma and I don’t plan on having asthma in the future! But I changed my style of breathing, and I have incredible energy. I did have an enlarged adrenal gland in my throat, and it is now shrunken into almost nothing. And nothing was helping this issue at all! I am very happy to have this side benefit! David’s health was affected tremendously positively by the Buteyko method. If it wasn’t for the Buteyko method, I don’t know where we would be. He had been having trouble working; he is a violin maker. The dust from my wood (I am a bow maker) was affecting his lungs as well. We might have had a change of careers… but now, we can have our careers, we can live the way we want to, and the cost-benefit involved in the time learning Buteyko versus being able to have the lifestyle we want – it is really easy to make a decision…”
P.S.: Read The New York Times article about David’s application of the Buteyko method.
