Hyperventilation, or over-breathing, reduces oxygen delivery to the brain, heart, kidneys and other vital organs; creates spasms in various smooth muscle systems; damages metabolism and the functioning of the nervous, cardio-vascular and immune systems. Over time, hyperventilation will gradually destroy a person’s health; also in some cases it can be lethal.
Here at Buteyko Center USA, we teach the Buteyko Method, which restores people’s health by reducing or eliminating hyperventilation. This method is based on the ground-breaking findings of Dr. Konstantin P. Buteyko, who discovered that the normalization of breathing leads to significant improvement in the functioning of most body systems. As a result, people who apply the Buteyko Method often overcome various diseases, such as asthma, COPD, allergies, rhinitis (stuffy nose), hypertension, chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, and eczema – just to name a few (see the full list of curable diseases by the Buteyko Method). There are thousands of people all over the world who are living proof that the Buteyko Method works (view our Testimonials).
Buteyko Method Specialists are educators: we are not medical doctors. We do not fight against a specific disease. Rather, we teach people how to restore their health by improving their breathing and altering their lifestyle. Our practitioners work in person or via the Internet. Wherever you are in the world, if your wish to improve your breathing and health, we can help you. Call our Center at 845.684.5456!
