The Principles of The Buteyko Breathing Programme

Breathing through the nose is essential for good health.

The volume of air we breathe has a direct relationship with our health.

Carbon dioxide is not just a waste gas.

Reducing your breathing allows increased oxygenation of bodily tissues.

Professor Buteyko believed that genetic predisposition determines which illness people develop from over-breathing. The response of each individual to hyperventilation depends on inherited factors.

In 2010 I read an article in a magazine about The Benefits of the Buteyko breathing programme and it resonated with me. I had a tendency to mouth breathe all my life. I was waking two or three times a night and my mouth would be so dry.  I had a young family and the tiredness was so frustrating. I thought Buteyko might help so I followed up on the article and contacted Patrick Mc Keown. I did his course in Dublin. The exercises absolutely changed the way I breathe and this has had such a positive impact on my life.  I now sleep soundly and have much more energy.  Small changes. Big difference. I am convinced that if I had not read that article I would be well on the road to having sleep apnea now.

My son had exercise induced Asthma and I realised that I had a tool to help him. Thankfully he was open to it and now partakes in exercise which he had been avoiding.

Over the next few years I read more and more articles and studies and realised how much evidence there is to support this method. particularly in relation to Asthma .  It should be more available to people.  It takes time and support to fully benefit from it.  Even if my GP told me to “go home and breathe through your nose” I wouldn’t have been able to do it. Doing the course I identified the root cause of my problem and was able to address it.

I have been practicing as a practitioner since 2016 and I am constantly amazed how this group of exercises can help people.

People have come to me with Asthma of all severities, Snoring, fybromyalgia, Fatigue, Chronic chest conditions. Mouth breathing, Hill walking ( altitude tolerance) and more.
