We first took Daniel to see Glenn from Buteyko Breathing in July 2008. Daniel, our 9 year old, son was taking Seretide 100/50 morning and night and Ventolin as required. In 2007 he had been hospitalized twice with his asthma.
The breathing techniques, knowledge and the understanding that Glenn shared with all our children has given us what we would consider some of the most significant help a parent could ever ask for. We are now in December 2010 and have had no hospital visits since and only two episodes that where dealt with and under control very quickly without any inhaler intervention, amazing!!
One particular episode was when the four children and I were away camping. With the cold of night Daniel’s asthma started to get quite bad. So much so that at 1am in the morning I was ready to pack up and go. We calmly went through the routines that we have learned through Buteyko and before long Daniel was sleeping soundly and the camping continued for the weekend.
