Buteyko For Asthma

I was born 73 years ago with very severe Asthma. My Asthma improved in my teens and whilst I went on to lead a relatively normal life and became a lifetime exercise fanatic, my Asthma was a constantly recurring problem. When I was in my 30’s the medics put me on a Clenil Modulite inhaler and a Serevent inhaler, both preventer medication and also gave me Salbutamol (then called Ventolin) as a reliever inhaler. When I used the Salbutamol inhaler, I always found the result beneficial and chose to ignore any possible side effects that may arise on the basis of over use. However, in my late sixties, everything went wrong with my Asthma and I was in real trouble, constantly gasping for air and needing to take well above the recommended daily dose of Salbutamol. I was poorly all the time. After tests, the hospital told me that the reason I had become so ill was that my oxygen levels had dropped. Apparently everyone’s oxygen drops in their sixties and if you are Asthmatic, you could truly know about it, which sadly I very much did. I then went through months of different inhalers and took a tablet called Montelukast. Sadly, I was still very ill and frankly felt that I was dying. After much research looking for breathing help, I came across on U Tube a BBC programme going back to 1998 in a series called QED and an episode entitled, ’Breathless.’ 30 minute’s later after watching the programme and seeing the remarkable results for severe Asthmatics who had taken up Buteyko Breathing, I persued Buteyko further and my pathway led to Linda Meads at The Buteyko Breathing Centre. Wow! Within 3 days of my firsts 90 minute Skype session with Linda, I was improving and could feel myself starting to breath in a relaxed natural way. I did a total of 5 Skype sessions with Linda and then a couple of much shorter follow ups but frankly, I did not need the follow ups. With Linda’s guidance, I found Buteyko very easy to learn and the benefits of Buteyko magnificent. Within weeks of starting Buteyko Breathing, I was successfully taken off my Serevent inhaler and my Montelukast tablets. For nearly five years now, I have used only Clenil Modulite inhaler as a preventer and my Salbutamol as a reliever. I now use Salbutamol on average less than twice a month. Salbutamol and additional medication were, 5 years ago, just a daily way of life for me. What a transformation! The quality of my life has improved beond all recognition since taking up Buteyko Breathing and allowing also my breathing problems to be put into the hands of Linda Meads. I am eternally grateful to Linda and Buteyko. I do have one question for our medical world. As someone who has spent a life visiting doctors and hospitals, why did I have to go through a process of such research and investigation to find something that has improved my breathing beyond recognition? Please note that whilst I have never met Linda Meads, I do because of our Buteyko connection and the manner in which she helped me, now class her as a friend, I am happy to be contacted by anyone who wishes to know about my experience with the Buteyko Method or Linda at The Buteyko Breathing Centre. If you have Asthma problems, don’t look for more medication. Consult The Buteyko Breathing Centre instead. You will thank me for telling you.

My son

Linda was wonderful and amazing with my son and did a course of Buteyko with him over Skype and changed his life. He can now run across the playground without coughing! I am totally grateful and wish they told everyone at the GP about Buteyko !

Nothing less than life saving.

When I was diagnosed with COPD (Emphysema and chronic asthma) in 2010 it seemed that my future held no hope. I was immediately put on powerful drugs by the hospital doctor and some more by the GP. Unlike asthma alone, COPD is progressive and incurable, and indeed I am terminally ill. But I was fortunate to be given a leaflet about the Buteyko Breathing centre. I did a course via Skype with Linda Meads and it turned things around for me. I was able to take control of my symptoms to a large extent. Although I shall have to take some medication for the rest of my life, I came off the worst of them. Even flare ups, when they happen, are manageable. I have not had any further hospital admissions. Best of all the hopelessness and depression lifted. I took up horse riding again after a 20 year gap, I go to the gym and a yoga class. All of this by someone with under 50% lung function! Thanks Linda.

WHAT A REVELATION!!

I attended one of Linda's courses about 18 months ago - I've not turned back since! I used to be ill with severe asthmas every few months for a few weeks at at time. This has not happened since attending the wonderful and enlightening course. Definitely the way forward for me - and hopefully for you too!!! Thanks again Linda. Xxxx

There is another way....

I am/was a lifelong asthmatic....the fact this is now ambiguous is fantastic. I had tried everything & "knew it all" - being a scientist, I respected the clinically verified/ product monetised routes to tackle asthma .....until they stopped being effective for me (though I wished I had looked deeper earlier). Mid-30's my inhalers, abruptly, stopped working - this was scary & depressing - the route laid out by the "traditional MDs" was simply to increase the dose, power & range of drugs - all of course with side effects. This felt like a slippery slope and so I became more proactive and broad minded in my search for a solution. I discovered Buteyko and could not believe the simple nature of the technique resulting in such reports of alleviation of symptoms or even "cure" (something which I had never even open my mind to). But the scientific mechanism identified by Prof. Buteyko and the solution, did make sense and there were clear reasons whereby I had never come into contact with this solution before in my life (you have to realise, the medical "industry" in the "West" overwhelmingly promotes "products" which can be monetised and marginalises anything which cannot and/or disrupts that status quo - this is just the way it works, not a conspiracy). I researched online to find a Buteyko practitioner and found the "Buteyko Breathing Centre" and in particular Linda Meads, with good reviews. I spoke to past clients and all had positive reports for Buteyko & Linda. I underwent a number of online sessions with Linda, (very convenient for those whom have busy work/life schedules) who is an excellent teacher. Very personable, flexible & a great sense of humour. Linda uses her expertise in Buteyko and other disciplines, together with her experience in dealing with clients, to develop an effective blend of exercises & approach. You should also be prepared to do your part and be dedicated to the schedule and breathing exercises to get the maximum out of the therapy. Put the work in but also make sure you understand the mechanism so you can fully understand what you're trying to achieve - this will help with motivation as well as the end goal - better health & quality of life. Please investigate for yourself, but I cannot recommend Linda Meads highly enough - I went from taking Ventolin a few times a month - onto much stronger medication (Symbicort, etc) - to completely coming off the strong meds, and I cannot remember the last time I needed to take any Ventolin (must be around 2 yrs ago and only required a couple of puffs in the last 4 yrs), which for me is a miracle, I would have been happy to go back to only taking ventolin every couple of weeks but I have ended up in a much better position. You MUST be MOTIVATED, my sudden decline in health provided the shock & motivation but I wish I had known about this years ago and had not taken so much medication, this is a sentiment I hear from lots of others reformed through Buteyko. I am happy to act as a reference to anyone doing their own research, I know how important this is when investigating something which seems "too good to be true". Good luck and consider Linda Meads for helping with you asthmatic issues.
