Frequently Asked Questions

What do you do?

We provide comprehensive Buteyko Breathing Training and Support

  • Comprehensive training and ongoing support for the development of new breathing habits to reverse chronic overbreathing (hyperventilation) that leads to a wide variety of breathing-related disease.
  • Developing new habits takes time.  It cannot be done in a few lessons or even over a weekend course.  We leverage the power of the web and the smartphone to provide comprehensive support and encouragement for the duration of your training.

What is the Buteyko Method?

The Buteyko Method

  • The Buteyko Method is a multidisciplinary approach drawing on elements of biochemistry, biomechanics, biodynamics and psychology to address a wide variety of breathing-related health issues, which can be summed up as follows:
  • The More Air We Breath - The Less Oxygen is Available to the Body and Brain
  • The Less Air We Breath - The More Oxygen is Available to the Body and Brain
  • The Method is designed to permanently change your breathing habits:
  • Breathe through the nose at all times, never through the mouth
  • Breathe into the abdominal area, not into the upper chest
  • Breathe just enough air to satisfy your biological requirements
  • Breathe at the optimal rate: 6-10 breaths per minute

How can this help me?

This training can help you in many ways...

  • It will provide a better quality of life, by improving your breathing, your sleep, and your ability to exercise
  • It can reduce your need for asthma and allergy medications
  • Together with the other life-style changes, it will naturally reduce high blood pressure and high blood sugar
  • It can provide a boost to your athletic performance, if you're an aging athlete
  • It can greatly improve your mood and outlook on life

Improvement in many chronic conditions...

Diseases of Affluence include mostly chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and other physical health conditions for which personal lifestyles and societal conditions associated with economic development are believed to be an important risk factor — such as type 2 diabetes, asthma, coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease, obesity, hypertension, cancer, alcoholism, gout, and some types of allergy.

Many of these diseases of affluence are related to chronic hyperventilation, in which a person breathes more air than the body requires. This depletes the carbon dioxide in the lungs then the blood stream, which in turn makes less oxygen available to the muscles, organs and brain (the Bohr Effect, a physiological phenomenon first described in 1904 by the Danish physiologist Christian Bohr).  

By retraining breathing habits, Buteyko Breathing Training reduces this chronic hyperventilation, resulting in improvements to a wide variety of seemingly unrelated conditions such as: 

  • asthma
  • allergies/hay fever
  • chronic bronchitis
  • emphysema
  • bronchiectasis
  • migraines/headaches
  • panic attacks
  • chronic fatigue
  • snoring/sleep apnea
  • sinusitis/rhinitis
  • nasal polyps
  • and even depression.

Structured online lessons, coaching and workshops

The Four Pillars of the Buteyko-Plus™ Method

  • Coaching - There are online workshops each week using Google Meet, where you can raise and discuss any issues, or you can raise a support ticket or book an online one-on-one coaching session.
  • Systems - The Buteyko Plus™ Program has been specifically designed to teach Buteyko effectively over the Internet.  This has involved implementing a Learning Management System (LMS) for managing the lessons, and various other systems for monitoring progress, collecting, presenting and reviewing data.

Can Buteyko breathing help with covid-19?

Maybe...  

Buteyko Breathing reduces the total amount of air that you breathe in, and by emphasizing nasal breathing, ensures that the air passes through the very effective filters in the nasal passages.  Together,  these will greatly reduce the number of pathogens that reach your bronchial tubes and lungs, reducing your chance of infection.  

In addition, the nitric oxide produced in the nasal passages while breathing through the nose is a natural bronchodilator which can make mask-wearing more tolerable and even make breathing easier if you do contract the disease.  For more details see the blogpost
