I Control My Asthma With Buteyko Breathing Exercises Only *

My Buteyko experience has been amazing!  The practitioners, Thomas and Sasha, have been wonderful to work with and very informative¦ truly a blessing! I had a pulmonologist appointment this morning.  My lung function test was 119%!!!  Three months ago it was 84%.  I didn’t have to do the albuterol inhaler with this test… thankfully!

I developed asthma three years ago.  Although my asthma was initially classified as mild, it was very persistent.  It continued to worsen and I eventually was on the strongest class of inhalers daily.  I was very concerned about being on inhalers because it was affecting other things such as blood pressure, tachycardia, etc.  The inhalers were also losing their effectiveness and I searched to find an alternative.  Within the first week of beginning the Buteyko breathing exercises I was completely off the strongest inhaler and by the third week was completely off all inhalers.  I have not had to use my emergency inhaler since beginning the exercises, almost three months ago.  I am very pleased with the results and know my health is improving daily. I am not using any medication to control my asthma, only the breathing exercises.  I would also suggest the Buteyko in Motion course.  This really helped me to learn how to breathe while exercising and eliminated breathing issues after exercise.  I am truly grateful to Thomas and Sasha for their continued support and dedication to teaching the Buteyko method.
