Off Oral & Inhaled Steroids After Breathing Normalization

I first discovered the Buteyko method in a book. I was desperate and prayed for help to rid myself of asthma. At the time I had just left the ER again recovering from an asthma attack, I was on oral steroids, inhaled steroids, and albuterol. I also was suffering from yet another viral infection. The book referenced the Buteyko Breathing Center and gave me the information to contact them. I was filled with hope and a lot of disbelief.

How could something so simple have such a profound effect on my body?

I signed up for the Buteyko Breathing Normalization course. I wanted all the help I could get and needed the support of someone who had been there and done that. They were right. In just a couple of weeks, I noticed a change in my breathing. I started to feel better. I was able to cut out the oral steroids and cut down on my inhaled steroids. I did not need my Albuterol anymore. I still have a ways to go until I become symptom-free. I am so grateful to have the support of my Buteyko breathing coach. I am not sure I would have stuck with the Method after experiencing a healing crisis. My goal is to be asthma-free and I believe I can achieve this now.

Thank you to everyone at the Buteyko Breathing Center and my Buteyko Specialist!
