John Roughan of the New Zealand Herald writes about overcoming his sleep apnoea after attending our clinic
You can read an article in the New Zealand Herald by John Roughan, As easy as drawing breath, about a tip he learned on the Buteyko course he did in 2006 has helped control his sleep apnoea.
He says he found it difficult to stick with the six-week programme of exercises but the suggestion to sleep with a strip of tape on his mouth helped him control his sleep apnoea. However, breathing through the nose is not the full answer to a complex and potentially serious health issue like sleep apnoea.
The exercises do take commitment: forty-five minutes of breathing exercises a day for six weeks will help overcome sleep apnoea, reduce the snoring, and make a noticeable improvement to overall health.
Unfortunately most people are unaware that snoring and sleep apnoea may be the result of a faulty breathing pattern and that learning a breathing technique like Buteyko can help resolve the problem.
Hopefully articles like this will encourage some to try this natural drug-free alternative to CPAP machines, mandibular splints and surgery. The solution is right under your nose.
Phone us at the Buteyko Breathing Clinic, Auckland on 09-360 6291 if you would like to book a private consultation or course with Glenn or to learn more about the programme.
