I did the Buteyko breathing course for my asthma and have had great results. Despite getting the flu with a chest infection this winter I did not get asthma and believe this is due to Buteyko. I feel relaxed after doing the breathing exercises and tension flows out of me.
An unexpected bonus has been the improvement in my circulation. I have had arthritis for many years and my fingers are now bent with arthritic nodes and are usually cold. When doing the exercise I can feel the blood tingling into my fingers and they become warm and relaxed with the breathing exercises.
Had I attended Buteyko courses at the onset of arthritis I am sure that the damage to joints would have been far less and the immune system would have coped better.
My husband and I are both grateful for the benefits of Buteyko.
