30 years ago a physician said you have asthma. And with that I began treatment as an asthmatic. From that day till just a few weeks ago I was using bronchodilators.

Finally I looked on the internet trying to see if there was anything else that had been discovered recently that I could explore, and I came across the article about the Buteyko Method in the New York Times. And this science writer said; "I think more people should look into this." I went to the Breathing Center Web Site and downloaded the E-book (Breathe To Heal: Break Free From Asthma). I read it twice that night, and it made a lot of sense. I started applying the techniques in the book, and after a few days saw significant improvement.

Having just completed, recently, the Level 1 training, I now feel that I have the tools to be able, maybe for the first time in my life, to be able to seize control of my own health. And that's an enormous thing. I owe that to the Breathing Center Staff.
