Adrienne Atkinson - Asthma, leg ulcer

Adrienne Atkinson - Asthma, leg ulcer

I enrolled in Glenn’s Buteyko course to help overcome my asthma, which it most certainly has. However, there has been an additional and quite unexpected benefit. For six and a half months before I started the course I had struggled with a severe leg ulcer caused by an altercation with a tractor clutch pedal. It had become infected three times. I had had four lots of antibiotic and towards the end a weeping and messy ulcer had developed that just would not heal. I had an appointment with a vascular surgeon for an operation and skin graft as my doctor felt that the blood vessels were not working or flushing the area properly due to the poor oxygenation of the extremity. However after the second day of the Buteyko course my leg began to bleed and then the healing was amazingly rapid. I was thankfully able to cancel the operation.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to improve their breathing, their life, their digestion etc but they do have to realise that it requires a real commitment of time and the desire to put their health and wellbeing at the top of their list.

With thanks to you Glenn and to Buteyko.
