Buteyko nose breathing was invented by a Russian scientist more than 50 years ago to curb asthma attacks and treat other respiratory problems. Unfortunately, the medical field resisted a breathing technique that could ease symptoms without the help of medication. Since then, people around the world have embraced Buteyko breathing specifically because its results are purely natural, not to mention effective.
Thousands of patients have reported relief from asthma, sleep apnea and hypertension by integrating this proven method—which balances the body’s oxygen and carbon dioxide—into their daily exercises. It is recommended that training in this technique can improve the outcomes.

The Technique: Buteyko Nose Breathing
In a quiet place, sit up straight and comfortably, focusing on breathing.
With closed mouth, breathe slowly through the nostrils to fill the lungs.
Exhale through the nostrils, slowly expelling the air from your lungs, until you feel compelled to inhale.
Upon inhale, repeats steps 1 and 2 until you feel the need to exhale.
Repeat five times.
