About Martha Downey de Buitleir.
Easybreathing Buteyko Practitioner
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.
People have come to me with Asthma of all severities, Snoring, fybromyalgia, Fatigue, Chronic chest conditions. Mouth breathing, Hill walking ( altitude tolerance) and more.
