Redwood City, CA, July 05, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Citizens in Redwood City CA. have found a wonderful alternative treatment to assist them in managing their health. It is called Buteyko Breathing. Each of these residents found relief from their symptoms of Asthma, Allergies, Snoring and Sleep Apnea. In the beginning they were both hopeful and quite skeptical. In fact, one student was learning Buteyko only because her mother had requested she do so.
The results each citizen experienced more than met their expectations. One who struggled for years with Asthma reports she no longer struggles to breathe and was able to get off medications entirely. Another stopped Snoring and stopped getting kicked out of bed by his girlfriend making them both happy.
Their instructor and expert in Buteyko Breathing, Greg Baker, CBE, a certified Buteyko Educator says it is very common for folks to be skeptical in the beginning. The breathing approach is not well known yet in the United States. It is much more established in places like England where it is an authorized medical treatment for Asthma. Or in Russia where it was invented in the 1950s and has been an accepted medical treatment for many condition since 1986.
Here is their story and what they found.
One student named Jeff struggled with snoring and what he thought may be mild sleep apnea. It is possible he had at least mild sleep apnea since 60 - 80% of people who snore do. His main complaint was how the snoring disrupted his relationship. As a busy peninsula professional an important time spent with his girlfriend was in bed before sleep. His snoring kept her awake so he slept on the couch alot. He took the Basic Buteyko Workshop in March of this year and by May his snoring was gone.
Another student name Morgan struggled for years with moderate to severe Asthma as well as migraines. As a result she embraced natural approaches to health. She has been working with Andreas Sijbrant, ND of Redwood City as her primary care physician who has been happy to see her success with Buteyko Breathing. She complained that the Asthma made it difficult to keep up with her desired daily running. And the migraines made it difficult to concentrate which she thinks has negatively impacted her career success. She also took the workshop in March of this year. She reported that by June her Asthma symptoms were gone and had been able to responsibly discontinue all medications. And her migraines have reduced almost 50%. Both results have made her a strong believer in the effectiveness of Buteyko Breathing.
Norma, a long time resident of the Redwood City area exclaims her life long struggle with allergies and chemical sensitivities has finally come to an end. She started learning Buteyko Breathing in March of this year at the workshop and continued with the eight week Buteyko Intensive. She reported that the workshop was effective at learning how to do the breathing exercises and the 8 week program was key for her to make the breath progress needed. It offered her the weekly focus and support she needed. Her results are 90 - 100% reduction in allergies. She stated that it feels like she got her life back. She had found it difficult to live a normal life with the need to avoid the many items that triggered her allergies. She thanks her teacher, Greg Baker, CBE over and over again for how much he helped her. She is now a strong believer in Buteyko Breathing and hopes many others can benefit from it as she has.
Here is a short overview of Buteyko Breathing.
It is simply a set of breathing exercises that helps the student to return their breathing volume to normal. Many people are over-breathing in response to chronic stress, lack of exercise, mouth breathing, acidic diet and the incorrect idea that big volume deep breathing is healthy. Expert Greg Baker, CBE explains to students how all of this works and includes standard medical evidence that this is accurate. For those who desire a more in-depth technical medical understanding he teaches seminars for clinicians such as medical doctors, naturopathic doctors, chiropractors, nurses, etc.
The impact of over-breathing is to reduce oxygenation in the body. This oxygen starvation or hypoxia causes a host of issues from a weakened immune system that increases inflammatory response unnecessarily to defense responses such as Asthma, Snoring and Sleep Apnea.
Who can learn Buteyko Breathing and experiencce it's benefits?
The answer is almost everyone. Most people in the United States live such a busy life that they are not getting enough exercise, are eating overly commercialized diets that cause too much acidity in the body, struggle with chronic stress that has no outlet and fall under the spell that big deep breathing is good for them. Greg Baker, CBE finds that the people most likely to learn Buteyko Breathing are the folks who have exhausted the standard medical approaches and just did not find the relief they needed.
People have a choice of learning Buteyko Breathing in a group workshop or one on one which can be in person or done entirely online with a webcam. The initial Basic Buteyko Workshop includes 4 sessions of two hours and a private one hour follow up, email and phone support and 3 month membership in the company website. The current cost is quite reasonable at $225 and a bargain compared to the typical yearly medical costs for typical conditions such as Asthma. Typical Asthmatic treatment yearly costs are $2,400 for drugs to as high as $6,500 if hospital visits are needed.
