Buteyko Breathing Tames Asthmatic Wheezing And Allows Exercising *

I has asthma my whole life and I have been taking medication for my breathing difficulties my entire life. Now, I am feeling much better because I can manage wheezing and other asthma attacks and stress without medication. I can manage to control my breathing, calm myself down and prevent more serious breathing problems. The Buteyko Breathing Normalization training with Sasha Yakovleva helped a lot; it allowed me to pay more attention to whether I am breathing through my nose or my mouth.
Since the beginning of this Buteyko course, I have not been sick, I did not catch any cold. I am also able to exercise now – I was not able to do it before. And this is a big change! It has helped! It also improved my outlook!

Before, it was very difficult for me to even walk up the stairs, and now I can do it, especially if I am paying attention to my breathing. I am also able to do thirty minutes on the elliptical machine every day when before the Buteyko Breathing Normalization course, I would not be able to do it at all! We began with slow walking – at the beginning of the program, this was the only exercise I could do. I am much more mobile now. Before, if I would just move around the room or do something ordinary, I would have breathing trouble, I would wheeze pretty much constantly. Before, it was not a day without serious wheezing. Now, if I wheeze, it is only momentary, so I hardly even notice this. So, my life changed for the better! I am definitely feeling better!

In previous years, I was dependent on my breathing equipment – oxygen machine and other types. Now, I feel freer to go places and visit people without all this breathing equipment for asthma and COPD. Buteyko practices, chanting a mantra, and doing breathing exercises helped me to improve my mental outlook and my physical capacity too. The stress does not get me down so much, I feel better able to coop.
