In 2008, Thomas was severely ill with asthma. Doctors told him that his crippling breathing difficulties were incurable and that he would be on medication for the rest of his life.
Upon discovering the Buteyko Breathing Method, and applying the Buteyko breathing exercises and Buteyko lifestyle principles, Thomas was able to tame his asthma and stop his allergies. Here he shares the story of his recovery, which prompted him to co-found the Buteyko Center USA, now Buteyko Breathing Center in order to help others who are suffering from asthma and other health disorders. He believes Buteyko Breathing is a natural solution for anyone suffering from coughing, wheezing, and chest tightness as he did.
