My name is Penny, I'm 43 and I'm a Mum, wife and a primary school teacher in Auckland, NZ. In February 2006 I attended a Buteyko course, together with my two children Anneka (now 14) and Simon (now 17.) Anneka had had a history bronchial problems and been an asthma sufferer since the age of 2. My son Simon often suffered sinusitis. Like my children when I caught colds and the flu, I would suffer from asthma and bronchitis symtoms for weeks after.
Since learning about Buteyko theory and practise, we rarely catch colds and flu. When we do, the illness follows its course much quicker and we don't suffer the complications that we used to.
None of us have suffered from asthma or any other complications since completing the course.
I have found numerous other health and lifestyle benefits since following Buteyko breathing method:- I always get a good nights sleep; I no longer develop pounding stress headaches while teaching; I have found I can increase and maintain my fitness levels much more effectively. All due to learning how to breathe properly!!!
Thanks to you Glenn, you have changed our lives!
