I believe the basic tenet of Buteyko – that asthma is caused by overbreathing throughout the day, and that learning to control our breathing can help manage our symptoms. Buteyko basically tells us that while yes, we may need our medicine, we can also be proactive and take control of our health – pretty cool, right?
But even if you don’t subscribe completely to the method, you can still get lots of benefits from its actionable health tips. For example, this simple Buteyko trick for managing asthma at night has literally (and yes, I mean ‘literally’) changed my life.
Close Your Mouth is a book I’ve used to learn more about the method. Here’s more from the Amazon listing:
Close Your Mouth is a self-help book containing complete instructions for the Buteyko Method for asthma, nasal congestion and snoring.
Without a doubt, the Buteyko Method is the most effective and direct way to reverse asthma, as shown through four clinical trials that resulted in 70% less coughing and wheezing, 90% less need for reliever medication and 50% less need for preventer medication within twelve weeks.
The author, Patrick McKeown, is one of a few people directly accredited and authorised by the late Professor Buteyko to teach his method to others. In 2002, Patrick founded the renowned ButeykoClinic.com to enable thousands of children and adults to reverse their condition. Close Your Mouth is the manual provided to each attendee to his clinic.
This book provides each exercise in simple, jargon-free language to enable all readers to attain freedom from their asthma and breathing difficulties.
The Buteyko Method has been described as one of the most important medical discoveries of the 20th century. You will find the information in this book most compelling and life changing.
