Buteyko

What is Buteyko?

Buteyko is a breathing technique used specifically by people who suffer with Asthma and other Respiratory problems. The technique got its unique name from its inventor, a Ukraine doctor called Konstantin Pavlovich Buteyko.
Buteyko has been proven to be affective and helped many people reduce other forms of medication.

Severe Cough Means Reduced Oxygen Content In Tissues
Clinical reflections of many hundred Russian medical doctors propose that reoccuring issues with cough occur only in individuals with lower oxygen content in cells and organs. Consider these important scientific findings in more detail. We can take first step with popular knowledge about the mechanism that creates severe
Deep breathing: the greatest health superstition
  Ask a hundred of people, "How should we breathe 24/7 for maximum body oxygenation?" or "Which unconscious breathing pattern provides us with best oxygenation?", and most of them will tell you that big and/or deep breathing is best. "Breathe more for more oxygen". However, if you take 100
Best Methods to Avoiding Common Flu and Cold Include Improved Oxygen Content In Body Cells
When it comes to staying healthy, everybody knows precisely how vital it is to have adequate vitamin C to reinforce the body. People are informed again and again how beneficial vitamin C is to keeping yourself healthy as well as strong. What’s the very first thing that you're
Typical Breathing Pattern of Sick People
If we consider automatic breathing patterns in sick people with various health problems, virtually all health conditions are characterized by ineffective breathing. Generally, many people know that people with asthma, COPD, panic/anxiety and cardiovascular diseases breathe too fast and inhale too much air even at rest while sitting.
Breathing for maximum brain oxygenation
Breathing and the brainOur breathing pattern has profound effects on the brain. Unnoticeable changes in breathing (when we believe that our breathing is OK) can reduce oxygenation and blood supply by 20-30%. How should we breathe, day and night, so that to have maximum oxygenation of the brain?
Simple Breathwork to Unblock the Stuffy Nose
Thousands of Soviet and Russian patients with asthma and other conditions have used this simple breathing exercise to clear their stuffy nose. The technique was developed by Russian doctors practicing the Buteyko self-oxygenation breathing technique. Over 150 MDs explained this breath work practice to their patients. In most
Usual Breathing Patterns in Sick People
If we consider automatic breathing patterns in sick people with various health problems, virtually all health conditions are characterized by ineffective breathing. Generally, many people know that people with asthma, COPD, panic/anxiety and cardiovascular diseases breathe too fast and inhale too much air even at rest while sitting.
Why Nose Breathing at Exercise Is Crucial for Cystic Fibrosis Treatment
Recent breakthroughs in cystic fibrosis treatments and research Several medical studies very recently (2009-2011) discovered that CFTR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator), the cystic fibrosis mutation protein gene, is controlled by oxygen pressure in body cells (see references below). While most people, including many medical professionals, believe that
7 main (unknown) health-destructive life style factors
Appearance and development of chronic diseases and symptoms, including fatigue, poor quality of sleep, mucus production, blocked nose, loss of vitality, anxiety, and confusion, are based on lowered body oxygenation. Cancer and heart disease, the main killers of modern people, are primarily based on tissue hypoxia (low cellular
Cancer tumours grow during early morning hours
Hundreds of oncological studies proved that growth of malignant tumours primarily depends on tissue hypoxia, but oxygenation of the human body is easier to measure: after your usual exhalation, pinch the nose and hold the breath, but only until the first stress. This stress-free and easy test accurately
How to prevent mouth breathing during the night
Mouth breathing drastically reduces body oxygenation: the amount of freely available oxygen in tissues is usually reduced almost two times when the person starts to breathe through the mouth, for example, during sleep. Epidemiological studies clearly proved that deaths from heart attacks, asthma, COPD, epilepsy, complications of diabetes,
Abnormal breathing pattern causes asthma and attacks
Here is a summary of five published studies related to breathing rates (or minute ventilation expressed in liters of air per one minute) in asthmatics at rest (when they do not experience problems with asthma).  *One row corresponds to one medical study/publicationCondition         Ventilation        Number of patients       ReferencesNorm              
Cancer likes mouth-breathers
The key cause of cancer, on a cellular level, is known to professional oncologists for more than 70 years. Dr. Otto Warburg got a Nobel Prize for this discovery. He wrote in his article "The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer" (1966), "Cancer, above all other diseases, has
How to exercise: the key (unknown) safety rule for people with poor health
We are all taught that physical exercise is good for us. It can sometimes produce numerous benefits and there is even anecdotal evidence that exercise saved lives of people with cancer, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and many other conditions. On the other hand, it is also known that
Walking and Exercise with Nose (Not Mouth) Breathing Leads to Slimming Down
Millions of people use physical exercise and try to lose weight or get slim, but cannot succeed due to one serious mistake. There are several essential differences if we compare effects of exercise (e.g., walking) on health and body oxygen levels in obese people. Why could body oxygen
Exercise is joy only when body oxygenated at rest
Most modern people can testify that physical exercise is not a pleasant experience. Over 200 MDs, practicing the Buteyko self-oxygenation breathing method, and other health professionals performed many millions of simple body oxygenation tests (stress-free variation of the breath holding time test done after usual exhalation and without
Heart disease means heavy breathing 24/7
Medical research clearly showed that all heart patients breathe way too much even at rest.In 1995 the British Heart Journal published a study (Clark et al, 1995) done by researchers from the National Heart and Lung Institute in London. The breathing rate of all 88 heart patients at
Health of cancer patients is predicted by stress-free breath holding time
Cellular hypoxia and cancer Dr. Otto Warburg, the Nobel Laureate, in his article "The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer" (1966) wrote, "Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. Almost anything can cause cancer. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. The prime
Which exercise parameters increase body oxygenation
Dozens of published medical studies clearly proved that body oxygenation, which is reflected by stress-free breath-holding time, is the best indicator of physical health. Among numerous varieties of the breath holding time test, the stress-free version of the test done after usual exhalation, most accurately reflects body oxygenation.
