Natural Asthma Program

Buteyko is a natural treatment program for asthma that is proven to reduce symptoms by up to two thirds. Clinical trials of the Buteyko Method for Asthma show that patients using Buteyko are able to reduce their bronchodilator medicines by 96%, while also reducing their steroid / cortisone medications by 49%, without experiencing an increase in asthma symptoms.

What does Buteyko do for asthma?

Buteyko is a way of breathing that allows for less spasm of the airways and blood vessels, increased oxygen delivery and better control over respiratory symptoms.
Buteyko offers a sound way to manage the biological effects of stress.
It is focused on assisting people to normalize their breathing and stop unhealthy breathing habits through learning a series of simple breathing techniques and exercises.

What is a Buteyko Program?

The Buteyko South Africa Program is a series of self help techniques for asthma and respiratory issues, taught in five sessions of 1.5 hours each. The program teaches you how to do Professor Buteyko's specialised breathing techniques at home, how to self-monitor and manage your asthma, and offers you free follow up support should you require it.
The program explains about asthma and other respiratory problems in detail , and teaches you how to practically integrate the Buteyko breathing exercises into your every day activities so that you do not have to radically change your routine or set aside huge chunks of your day to do breath-normalizing exercises.

Will My Doctor Agree To Buteyko?

Family doctors who understand how Buteyko works will naturally see benefit in recommending the Buteyko program to their patients. This is because they want their patients to become better informed and better able to manage their asthma successfully, using sound scientific principles, a deeper understanding of how to manage their stress, and with less medicine that may cause harmful side effects over time.
These doctors realize that patients who follow a Buteyko program are also usually more compliant with medical regimes. Once patients begin to understand their condition and learn just how and why their breathing needs to change, they make the effort to take control of their asthma.

Is Reducing Medicine Safe?

Asthmatics who follow the Buteyko program discover how to stop asthma symptoms naturally, in a controlled and managed way. Only after they have good symptomatic control, do they manage to safely reduce medicine with their doctors consent and monitoring. Discuss the Buteyko method with your doctor today, and refer them to a Buteyko practitioner should they have any queries.
