The allergy epidemic

It is only in the last century that asthma and allergies have reached epidemic levels and despite extensive research, the underlying cause of this epidemic remains elusive to western medicine. Allergies are often considered to be diseases of civilization and herein lies the clue.

While there are many “civilizing” factors that might be responsible, including deteriorating air quality, increasing reliance on chemical pesticides in horticulture, food additives, and a range of other factors, the quality of our lifestyles and the effect this is having on our breathing has been overlooked.

A Buteyko Breathing Course can help you identify factors in your lifestyle which are having such an effect on your wellbeing.  Contact us to learn more.
