Professor Buteyko says that the body has various ways of defending against what he calls a 'hidden hyperventilation'. Hidden hyperventilation has the effect of blowing off carbon dioxide which is a catalyst in the oxygenation process. There are approximately 150 self manifested diseases that relate directly to incorrect breathing.

By normalising their breathing pattern and creating the correct internal balance, physiological changes can occur through increased oxygenation which affect the whole of the organism.

The Buteyko Institute of Breathing and Health Incorporated Practitioners as a group have collectively treated approximately 8,000 patients throughout Australia over the last seven years.

Most people that attended in the early stages were those who were fast running out of options with traditional treatments. Interestingly enough, most of them had one or two other diagnosed conditions.

As the list of asthmatics treated with the Buteyko Technique grew, the Practitioners found that more and more people were reporting not only a reduction in their asthma symptoms but also a reduction in symptoms and ailments with their other diagnosed conditions including:

  • Anxiety
  • Attention deficit disorder
  • Endometriosis
  • Diabetes
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Hypoglycaemia
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Eczema
  • Sinusitis
  • Tinnitus
  • Heart conditions
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • High blood pressure
  • Fibrosing alveolitis
  • Thyroid conditions
  • Sleep apnoea
  • Rhinitis
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Scoliosis
  • Gout
  • Epilepsy
  • Emphysema

Analysis of attendee records has shown that the majority have two to three major health conditions prior to starting the courses. The senior practitioners of the Buteyko Technique have developed programs for people with these conditions.

The aim of the Buteyko Technique is to recondition your breathing pattern towards normal. This provides more oxygen to tissues and organs which in turn increases the functioning ability of the brain, digestive, hormonal, vascular, nervous and immune systems.

As your overall health improves, and in consultation with your GP, you can arrange to reduce your preventative medication if required.

The Buteyko Technique gives you control of your condition.

Our reputation is based on the results achieved from the purely natural physiological changes that occur from increased oxygen absorption.
