Respiratory disorders involving lungs

Respiratory system and lungs Respiratory disorders involving lungs (asthma, bronchitis, COPD, emphysema, cystic fibrosis, pneumonia, tuberculosis; pulmonary edema; etc.) are relatively easy to treat using the Buteyko breathing technique and the Frolov/DIY breathing devices. Most serious symptoms (shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, etc.) can be eliminated or reduced in days, but complete clinical remission may require many months or years of breathing retraining.

The restrictions for breathing exercises in these groups of patients relate only to breathing sessions with the DIY and Frolov breathing devices.

These groups of people should be gentle in relation to their damaged lung tissue. Intensive mechanical stimulation of their weak lungs (in terms of amplitude and velocity of inhalation and exhalations) during initial stages of learning should be avoided. Later, they can gradually increase the velocity of inhalations and amplitude of inhalations and exhalations.

Hence, they should avoid any fast inhalation and exhalations with the Frolov or DIY breathing devices, as well as maximum inflations and deflations of their lungs when using the DIY or Frolov breathing devices during the initial stages of learning. All exercises are done in a comfortable way with good care for the current abilities of their lungs. The exact duration of this initial stage (in days) is provided right below here as your bonus content.
