I’ve been asthmatic for 45 years. I suffered from bronchial pneumonia and was hospitalized three times a year. Now after three months, I take so little asthma medication. I learned that it is important when you know things are going to be crazy, take a few moments to do your breathing exercises and center yourself. Then you have control over your respiration and asthma symptoms. When you carry your medication with you, you believe it is going to be your savior, but it’s not. The Buteyko Breathing Method gives you that control.
