Based on years of teaching the Buteyko breathing method to individuals and groups (since 2001), I offer online email support and live consultations (using emails, Skype and/or landline phone numbers) for qualified individuals. This can include not only asthma, bronchitis, heart disease, and diabetes, but also more complex health problems such as cancer, cystic fibrosis, HIV-AIDS, and many others. Aspiring athletes can also apply for these classes in order to improve their sports performance.
The goal of breathing retraining is to change your unconscious breathing pattern so that you have more oxygen in cells 24/7. You can easily measure your body oxygenation and your breathing rate using a stress-free CP test. Hence, you are in control of your progress.
Since virtually all chronic diseases are based chronic hyperventilation and, hence, tissue hypoxia (low cellular oxygen tension and short CPs), increased body oxygenation (higher CP test results) naturally eliminates symptoms of chronic diseases. Within 1-2 months of practice (1-2 hours of breathing exercises and 1 hour of physical activity per day), most people become free from medication and symptoms caused by the above-mentioned diseases. There are many other common medical conditions (cancer, diabetes, etc.) that can be successfully addressed using breathing retraining. You can find them on pages of this website.
How to apply for online Buteyko classes
In order to become qualified for breathing retraining classes, please provide (send) these details about yourself:
– Full name, year of birth or age
– City/region and country
– Height and body weight
– Current health problems and their duration
– Main symptoms and complaints now (write on extra space if needed)
– Medication and drugs you use now (with their dose and duration)
– Past health problems and their duration
– Your abilities to practice breathing exercises and do physical exercise every day.
Keep this info for future references since you will be asked to fill your Personal Questionnaire with many more questions related to your health state and current lifestyle. The initial information is required to evaluate if you can restore your health or not. It may be too difficult to recover the health of people with combined severe health problems (e.g., metastatic cancer combined with complications of diabetes and numerous allergies). There is no guarantee that breathing of such patients can be normalized.
However, over 99% of people can expect their health restoration provided that a person will diligently practice breathing exercises (up to 1-2 hours per day) with gradually increasing intensity and amount of physical exercise (up to 2-3 hours per day) for long-term maintenance of health and vitality. Breathing retraining also involves lifestyle changes in sleep and diet of the students.
