It was frightening and stressful to watch my husband suffer through his asthma attacks. I was concerned how long he could continue in this compromised state of ill health. I was praying daily for his recovery from his asthma.
I feel that my prayers were answered the day we learned about the Buteyko Method of breathing. I feel very fortunate to have the Buteyko Center located directly in our own town of Woodstock, NY, as we were prepared to travel some distance to learn this technique. Thomas Drakon Fredricksen, our instructor is understanding and supportive, not only to David, but to me – his caregiver. I am gratified to be undergoing the training of the Buteyko Method of Breathing alongside David. This allows me to help David improve his breathing and to utilize the techniques more effectively because I am also taking the training and striving to breath in the Buteyko Method.
Thomas is an inspiring teacher, whose caring manner makes learning this method a positive, empowering experience. A side benefit to the miraculous easing of David’s asthmatic symptoms, are my improved clarity of mental focus and renewed vigor. I am so grateful for the gift of health and hope you have given to us both – thank you!
P.S.: The New York Times article made the story of David’s recovery from asthma known to many asthmatics all over the world. The Buteyko method works!
