Breathing to Heal
breathing to heal from asthma
Research has extensively documented that individuals with asthma tend to breathe more air than those without asthma. This habit is typically characterized by mouth breathing, upper chest breathing, and audible or noticeable breathing even when at rest. This over-breathing can disrupt blood gases and cause airway cooling and drying, leading to symptoms like coughing, wheezing, and breathlessness.
Teaching individuals with asthma to switch to breathing through their nose and adjust their breathing volume to a normal level can significantly reduce asthma symptoms and improve their quality of life. Clinical trials that explore the Buteyko Breathing Method for asthma demonstrate that its application can lead to improved asthma control, thereby decreasing the need for inhaled steroid medication by nearly half.
"In my personal experience living with chronic lifelong asthma, my symptoms completely resolved when I corrected my dysfunctional breathing".
