Natural Asthma Relief - The Buteyko Breathing Method
Whether you or someone in your life is one of the 2.74 million people in Canada that has been diagnosed with asthma, there is a viable and drug-free alternative to help manage the symptoms and completely replace (or profoundly reduce) one’s dependency on man-made drugs and traditional prescription-laden solutions; it’s the Buteyko Breathing Method.
Pronounced boo-take-oh, this natural treatment for asthma incorporates simple (yet mindful) breathing exercises that replace the sufferer’s typical breathing pattern. Konstantin Pavlovich Buteyko, the Ukrainian doctor who developed the principles of this breathing method in the 1950s, believed that asthma is caused by hyperventilation or a chronically-increased respiratory rate. Butekyo’s breathing method corrects these stress-inducing conditions by creating a completely-different breathing pattern. By breathing purposefully and thoughtfully, hyperventilation and an increased heart rate become non-existent. At the core of the Buteyko breathing method is a series of calming, reduced-breathing exercises that focus on:
• Nasal Breathing
• Reduced breathing
While there’s lots of extrinsic and intrinsic variables that can trigger an asthma attack and instantly render your breathing labored, the Bukeyto Breathing Method is effective whether your trigger is from a high-pollen count or a morning’s workout at the gym. Since it involves no medication, it can be taught to individuals from age 3 to 103+. By scheduling regular sessions over the course of a few months with a highly-skilled and trained professional to help you learn how to master the art and science of the Buteyko Breathing Method, you can expect:
• a 50% reduction in coughing, wheezing, and breathlessness within 14 days
• a 90% reduction in dependency on prescribed asthma reliever medication, and
• a 50% reduction in dependency on your preventer medication within 90 to 180 days.
While the traditional methods of dealing with asthma have helped many sufferers manage their stressful, compromised-breathing attacks, prescription drugs come with their own set of lifestyle challenges and side effects. Whether you’ve always been open to alternative ways to sustain your health on a daily basis, or you’re just now exploring options that are 100% natural, non-invasive, and side-effect-free to achieve your wellness goals, embracing the Bukeyto Breathing Method today will literally be “a breath of fresh air” in managing your asthma. Through services provided at your local spa, you’ll learn how to calmly breathe purposefully ~ thus reducing (or completely eliminating) another asthma attack.
