The Buteyko Breathing Normalization course helped me tremendously. I have more energy now when before I had been taking naps often. I also sleep better, and my husband said that I stopped snoring. Buteyko is helping me tremendously! I went to the doctor yesterday and she said to reduce intake of the two types of medication I have been taking for my low thyroid function. I am sure that as I continue practicing the Buteyko method, I will be completely off medication.
At the beginning of the course, it felt as I had a lot of homework to do because I needed to do a lot of Buteyko breathing exercises, but now I see it as a way that pays off at the end and also while you are doing them. I like the way how I was communicating with Fred Brown, my Buteyko instructor, by sending emails daily with updates on my progress. I also enjoyed my online sessions with him. Reading Breathe To Heal book helped me but during the course, you start with easy breathing exercises and then you build up your Buteyko practice – this way it is not overwhelming. And this made me feel like I would be able to complete the Buteyko program successfully.
I think anybody who has any problems with snoring, sleep apnea, or any other health issue can be helped by the Buteyko method. If you do Buteyko breathing exercises, you will see the results.
My snoring and sleep apnea are almost gone. This is the main benefit I received. Fred is a very good Buteyko teacher and I recommend him!
