Minneapolis, MN, March 06, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- There is a way out of inhalers, breathlessness and lifestyle limitations for estimated 23 millions of American asthmatics (Summary Health Statistics for U.S. Adults: National Health Interview Survey, 2006, Tables 3 and 4. http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/series/sr_10/sr10_232.pdf). In this economy the lost jobs, rising health care and inhaler costs make it more difficult than ever to follow a continuous drug regiment typical for chronic asthmatics. For many failure to stay on preventive steroid drugs could result in life threatening asthma episodes. For others, years of daily medication use might lead to damaging side effects. A complimentary treatment called the Buteyko Method claims that no matter what type or severity your asthma is, you can get a significant relief and reduce or eliminate your drug intake.
Asthma in Minnesota
According to Minnesota Department of Health, asthma is the leading serious chronic illness among children in the United States, and among the top 10 emergency department diagnoses for children in the Twin Cities. In Minnesota, more than 79,000 children – one in 15 – have asthma.
One in 10 Minnesota adults age 18 and older report that they have been diagnosed with asthma at some point in their lives. 7% of Minnesota adults (nearly 350,000 people) report that they currently have asthma.
Safe, virtually no cost therapy
The Buteyko Method is safe for any age and disease severity, and does not include the use of any drugs, supplements or devices. There are no costs involved except the educational workshop fee, which averages around the cost of just one month supply of commonly prescribed in the US preventive inhalers. Considering that most moderate to severe asthmatics should continuously use inhalers for months and years, there is little doubt the Buteyko therapy could significantly reduce costs for patients, medical insurance providers and save taxpayers’ money directed at Government subsidized Healthcare.
Buteyko Therapy facts
The Buteyko Therapy, named by its creator, Russian Professor of Medicine K.P. Buteyko, is based on the notion that many chronic conditions, asthma being most prominent, originate from commonly overlooked by medical profession diagnosis of Chronic Hyperventilation Syndrome (CHVS).
The method is virtually unknown in the USA, but has received considerable recognition in Europe, Russia, Australia and New Zealand.
