Breathing Difficulties Subsided with Buteyko Breathing *

Email from a Buteyko Breathing Center student:

Hey Jesse, just to let you know, today has been the best day yet. Tuesday I used my albuterol much too much and had a terrible night Monday into Tuesday morn. But after calling Buteyko Hotline and speaking with you, I tried what you suggested. Yesterday was great. Today’s the best day yet. Thank you!

Another email in a few days:

I’m so grateful for an alternative to inhaled steroids. I feel so, so much better not taking Advair! I can’t tell you how great it is! After 10 years chained to that medicine and wondering about the adverse side effects and not feeling well for so long, I am so happy to be free of it!

Another email:

Jesse, your suggestions were excellent! No problems since that day – I keep reminding myself not to automatically reach for that rescue inhaler (old habits die hard), but it’s been working. Yesterday I didn’t even need to use it upon waking, or today either. Cold air earlier this evening did make me use it without thinking. Not the next time this happens though! I did it without thinking and wasn’t breathing through my nose then. So next time…
