Effects of breathing retraining and Buteyko technique on diabetes mellitus:


Diabetes before and after treatment with the Buteyko method or breathing retraining
– An immediate decrease in insulin dosage twofold, use of insulin of short duration.
– Increase in the CP is accompanied by decreased requirements in insulin and, at X seconds CP (for the DIY body oxygen test), its complete elimination.
– Prevention of complications.
– High CP values for the DIY body oxygen test (over X seconds -see details below) 24/7 lead to complete clinical remission (cure). The time of recovery is usually about 1/10 of the disease time (when a person was using insulin or other blood-glucose-reducing medication).
– Normalization of the emotional life of the students and significant improvement in the quality of life.

Effects of breathing retraining and Buteyko method on hypothyroidism


– Immediate intensification of metabolism, energy level, and reduction in the thyroidal hormone dose
– Increase in the CP is accompanied by increased energy, the disappearance of possible feeling cold (e.g., cold extremities) and other negative symptoms.
– High CP values (over X seconds – see below) 24/7 lead to complete clinical remission and no need for medication in people with diabetes.
– Prevention of complications.
– Significant improvements in the quality of life.

Effects of breathing training and Buteyko on obesity
– Immediate intensification of metabolism and changes in dietary preferences in the direction of “healthier” choices (eating less with better energy).
– Increase in the CP is accompanied by redistribution of fat with its subsequent metabolism and increase in the muscular mass due to the catabolic effect.
– With the increased CP, the ability and desire to exercise are gradually restored. Moreover, the use of physical exercise leads to dramatic acceleration of the recovery rate.
– Prevention of complications.
– Significant improvements in the quality of life.
