Buteyko Breathing

Without being aware if it, many people are suffering from a myriad of health conditions that may be the result of something as simple as dysfunctional breathing.  Due to our busy lives, many of us are breathing as if we are constantly under stress.  Dr. Konstantin Buteyko referred to this as over breathing or chronic hyperventilation.  He devised a simple breathing technique that could help reverse over breathing which in turn, also reduced symptoms of a variety of other health conditions such as asthma, hypertension, anxiety, sleep apnea, snoring, sinusitis and IBS.

Dr. Buteyko discovered that the habit of over breathing causes a decreased amount of carbon dioxide in the blood, which leads to a narrowing of the airways and the blood vessels.  For people with various health conditions like those listed above, the Buteyko method aims to slightly increase the amount of carbon dioxide in the blood to a normal level, which will reduce or in some cases, even eliminate, their symptoms.
