Buteyko Clinic USA offers complimentary drug free therapy for asthma patients based on Buteyko Breathing Method. Its effectiveness has been proved by medical trials and it is successfully practiced in many countries (Russia, Ireland, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Germany, Denmark and more). The British Thoracic Society's 2008 British Guideline on the Management of Asthma grades Buteyko Breathing technique as category B, meaning that there are high quality clinical trials supporting the effectiveness of the method in reducing asthma symptoms and bronchodilator use. Mayo Clinic listed The Buteyko Breathing Technique among the most promising alternative therapies for asthma. The Buteyko workshops are covered by medical insurance companies in Ireland and Australia (expand Asthma Care tab at the linked page). Coventry University in the UK offers a course to train nurses how to teach the Buteyko Breathing Method to patients with asthma.
Listen to the interview with Dr Robert Cowie (Canada), who led the Buteyko Trial in Calgary.
The Buteyko Theory is built on the study of the critical role of hyperventilation in human health. (see Ref: links below).
The Buteyko Breathing Method is taught by a fully trained Buteyko Educator in a classroom like setting and consists primarily of breathing reconditioning techniques and exercises. In addition, healthy lifestyle changes are strongly encouraged.
Recently created Buteyko Breathing Educators Association (BBEA) is a high standard professional organization for the teaching and certification of Buteyko Educators in North America and worldwide. Buteyko Educators, who are members of BBEA, are required to comply with rigorous teaching and certification standards.
The method does not in any way interfere with medical treatment participants receive from their doctor, nor does it encourage them to experiment with prescribed medication use and dosage. Prior to beginning the course, participants must sign an agreement not to alter their current medical treatment and prescribed medications.
This therapy has no side effects and helps most patients have significantly fewer symptoms, use less
medication and enjoy a greatly improved quality of life.
It is our hope that the positive results achieved with this therapy will encourage more trials and medical research.
It is our strong belief that every asthma patient will benefit from incorporating our program's breathing reconditioning technique in their asthma management plan.
