The Buteyko method has been clinically proven to reduce chronic uncontrolled medicated asthma symptoms by up to seventy-two percent.
But the Buteyko Method is so much more than just an adjunct program for asthma. Buteyko normalizes your breathing - which in turn, normalizes your health.
Published randomized controlled clinical trials
have shown that the Russian breathing technique
known as the Buteyko method, helped asthmatics to experience fewer symptoms allowing for reduction of their short acting bronchodilator (rescue medicines) usage
by up to 96% and cortisone / steroid (preventer or controller) medication by up to 49% within a few months.
The Buteyko South Africa program is a system of simple breath retraining exercises that are modified to suit your specific condition. Buteyko shows you how to control, manage and prevent symptoms and addresses the entire body holistically without the use of drugs or devices.
The Buteyko South Africa program does not use meditation techniques or yoga breathing, deep breathing or other forms of exercises using devices, masks and tubes.
The Buteyko South Africa program does not require you to abstain from life saving medications in order to be effective. We teach management, prevention, trigger awareness and first aid techniques along with retraining exercises that stabilize breathing in the future.
We also give you a method of logging your progress and keeping track of symptoms. This is so important because once your symptoms are clearly under control with Buteyko and your breathing is stable, it is safe to begin the process of reducing medications accordingly with your doctors supervision.
The evidence that the Buteyko Method is a highly effective intervention for asthma has led to the Buteyko Method being officially recognized by the British Thoracic Society in the UK, and by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality in the USA, major contributors to policy and protocol regarding treatments for illness in their respective countries.
Many modern health professionals agree that the Buteyko Method is an excellent adjunct program for any person diagnosed with asthma when taught by a trained practitioner.
Buteyko has no side effects when taught by a properly trained practitioner, and is safe for all ages to use.
