A Russian breathing technique.
This was a stillborn project
Buteyko is a system of breathing exercises used to correct and alleviate the symptoms of asthma. The system is also used in the treatment of emphysema, allergies, sinusitis, rhinitis, COPD and hyperventilating.
The system was devised by a Dr Konstantin Buteyko, an honours graduate of the First Medical Institute in Moscow. During his training, Buteyko had been given a practical assignment monitoring diseased patients breathing - it was from this study that his interest in the breath and its effect on the body developed. He carried out extensive research on the breathing patterns of asthmatics, sufferers of angina and other diseases, and had successful and positive results. The research was further developed during his time at the Central and Lenin Medical Libraries.
By the end of the 1960's, Buteyko's method was being used with great success in clinics all over Russia. The teachings have gradually spread to the West and are now fairly widely available. It is recommended that the method should only be taught by a practitioner registered with the Buteyko Institute of Breathing and Health. A course will generally run over five consecutive days, for an hour and a half each session. Most BIBH practitioners offer a money back guarantee, and allow payment after the course is completed.
