Buteyko Breathing

BUTEYKO BREATHING

What is the Buteyko Breathing Method and why is it important?

This method of breathing works to permanently correct breathing volume and eliminate detrimental breathing habits, making a lasting difference to your symptoms and long term health.

See, we all technically “over breathe” which means we take more short, shallow breaths (a reduction in breathing volume). When this happens, repercussions occur such as anxiety, hyperventilation, and asthma just to name a few. I can go into the science of it like how it reduces CO2 levels (which we need in our blood) and reduces nitric oxide intake (which is something we need as well)… but I’ll save that for a conversation.

How do I know if I need treatment for this?

Lets do a quick self test to see where you’re at… follow these steps:

  • Gently place your tongue on the roof of your mouth and close your lips
  • Take a normal breath in through your nose and a normal breath out through your nose
  • At the end of the breath, pinch your nose and hold your nose
  • Start counting the time you hold your breath
  • When you feel the first urge to breathe, take a gentle and slow breath in through your nose. This breath should not be stressed.
  • Record the number of seconds you held your breath

1-10 seconds: severely sick

10-20 seconds: sick patients with numerous complaints

20-40 seconds: people with poor health, but often nothing serious

40-60 seconds: good health

Over 60 seconds: ideal health, when many modern illnesses are virtually impossible
